Obama claimed unemployment would be 5% if the stimulus was passed[edit]

The 5% claim <u><a href="http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2012/oct/09/american-crossroads/ad-says-barack-obama-promised-jobless-rate-would-b/">that's been debunked</a></u>.


Only 33k a month of full time jobs created under Obama[edit]

The full-time job numbers are bunk. 2,478,000 full time jobs have been added to the economy in the 51 months since the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 was signed into law (even more if you measure from when the stimulus actually started to take effect three months later). I know math is hard, but that is 48,588 jobs per month, and that of course is just a subset of all jobs created. The <u><a href="http://imageshack.us/a/img825/7030/98lp.png">direction of full-time job creation</a></u> under President Obama is not bad (though we all wish it was higher). Too bad the GOP wants to do nothing to help improve it, and are actually <u><a href="http://www.cnn.com/2012/07/19/politics/senate-bring-jobs-home-bill-blocked">working against improvement</a></u> because they <u><a href="http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2010/10/25/126242/mcconnell-obama-one-term/">think it will help them politically</a></u>.


Bush vs. Obama on jobs[edit]

Do you agree, or do you want to defend Bush's record of <b>losing</b> part time and full time job vs. 2,478,000 full time jobs added to the economy in the 51 months since the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 was signed into law (even more if you measure from when the stimulus actually started to take effect three months later) under President Obama..?
