A simple graph can show anything.

It totally ignores the big lie about economic recovery.

Bush left office just after the housing bubble crashed and put the entire job market and economy into nearly a depression. Both the GOP and democrats share the blame for this. It was years in the making before Bush even took office. Had it occurred during Obama's administration, the trend would also point steeply downhill.

After record high unemployment rates, naturally the job market has no where to go, but up. But, how good are these jobs, and how big and productive is this replacement job market?

The graph doesn't account for the fact that thousands of people left the job market, while a vast majority of others were forced to take jobs well below their means.

Finally, what is one single policy of Obama's that can be attributed to a strong economy? Government spending? Bailouts? Solar Energy? Mandated Healthcare? What is it?
