Net job gains in Bush's first term

Remember all that talk campaign talk about Bush being the first president since Hoover to preside over a net loss of jobs? Well, I guess that was wrong. Not bad for a president who took office at the beginning of a recession, exacerbated by the most devastating attack on American soil in history.


Sure - but if you take the first term standalone the statement is still true isn't it?

Hopefully it will turnaround because whether you like Bush or not, you have to be supportive of a better job market.

It looks like it's true with the new revision that he avoided this stigma...but it was true at the time given the data in force then.

I wouldn't let Bush off the hook though. His spending and deficit building have been enormous for a Republican.
