There are lies, damned lies and statistics

With the Internet, anyone can find a statistic that supports their position. Your chart is based on pure numbers, "jobs created." But if you were to normalize jobs created as a percentage of population, Obama's numbers would not be so good. If you then added those who have left the job market, his numbers would be even worse.

Whatever. I'm just along for the ride. Whatever happens, happens and I can't do anything about it. Playing "one upsman" on the Internet solves nothing. The economy will do what it will do. I just want to have a happy and fulfilled life and be the person God wants me to be.
