Obama v Bush first 6 year comparison, White american employment, Over 2 million more working in 2007 than 2015, White employment decimated under Obama, Hispanic Latinos gain 4 million
“There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie.”…Gallup CEO Jim Clifton
“In February 2015 there were 43,000 fewer white Americans employed, 354,000 more not in the labor force, 96,000 more employed and we added 295,000 jobs? Was Common Core math used?”…Citizen Wells
“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984″
Many of the left wing web sites, in their efforts to prop up Obama, have compared the performance of the Bush presidency to Obama’s. They typically compare the 8 years of Bush to the current Obama stats. Of course what they fail to mention is that the Democrats controlled both houses of congress the last 2 years of Bush.
Here is a more fair, more realistic comparison.
The first 6 years of Bush compared to the first 6 of Obama.
March 2007 to March 2015.
White American employment.
In March of 2007 there were 120,221,000 white Americans employed.
In March of 2015 there were 117,886,000 white Americans employed.
There were 2,335,000 more white Americans employed in March 2007 under George Bush!
In March of 2007 there were 20,349,000 Hispanic Latino Americans employed.
In March of 2015 there were 24,319,000 Hispanic Latino Americans employed.
There were almost 4 million more Hispanic Latino Americans employed under Obama!
From Citizen News April 3, 2015.
“THE EMPLOYMENT SITUATION — MARCH 2015″
“Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 126,000 in March, and the unemployment rate was unchanged at 5.5 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today.
Employment continued to trend up in professional and business services, health care, and retail trade, while mining lost jobs.”
Now for the rest of the story, the truth.
Also from the same website, historical tables.
There were 106,000 fewer whites employed in March.
There were 226,000 more whites not in the labor force.
There were 81,000 more Hispanic employments.
Don’t take my word for it.
Look it up!”
