Dem rep: Obama will create more jobs in 2010 than entire Bush presidency

posted at 2:20 pm on May 28, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

Yes, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz D-FL) was apparently serious yesterday when she told Stuart Varney that the Obama administration would create as many jobs in 2010 as during “the entire Bush presidency,” a moment that comes at about 1:50 in the clip below. This claim came in response to Varney’s challenge to the incumbent Democrat as to how she will explain her vote to spend a trillion dollars when it failed to achieve its objective in keeping unemployment below 8%. Wasserman-Schulz does a strange double down in reply. But was she right?


For the record, employment grew during the Bush years from 137,778,000 in January 2001 to 142,221,000 in January 2009, a net growth of 4,443,000 jobs over the course of the Bush years. The economy has added 1,663,000 jobs this year (from 137,792,000 in December 2009 to 139,455,000 in April 2010), over four months. At that rate, assuming the same rate of job growth (as Wasserman-Schultz herself set the parameters of her claim), that would predict a growth of almost 5 million jobs — which puts Wasserman-Schultz’s argument in the ballpark.

However, it’s worth pointing out that the numbers on private employment, excluding government employment, don’t look nearly as good. At one time during the Bush years, private employment had expanded by almost 4 million, reaching its peak in December 2007. That was true despite dealing with a couple of recessionary periods during the first term of his presidency. The resulting collapse wiped out all of those gains, however, and left Bush with a deficit of 673,000 jobs. In contrast, Obama has lost over 3.3 million jobs in private employment since the start of his term on top of what was lost in the final year of the Bush presidency. In 2010, private employment has only climbed by 483,000 jobs. At that rate, it will take 28 months to restore just the private-sector jobs lost during the Obama administration — and another 32 months to get back to the peak of private employment during the Bush years.

That also doesn’t account for population growth, either. An employment level of 115,574,000 private-sector jobs in December 2007 will not be the equivalent of having that number in 2016.

In short, Wasserman-Schultz may be technically correct in this claim, thanks to aggressive government expansion and hiring, but it’s a seriously misleading argument. (h/t: HA reader Yossi Kudan)

Obama’s is doubling down; trying to indoctrinate more people into the Communist position: “Private enterprise causes corruption and stagnation; while the government creates jobs and wealth.”

Crazy? Sure, all cults are. Nevertheless, as the economic destruction accellerates, this will net him some more fanatically devoted converts.

That won’t be anywhere near enough to win an election. But in the past, that kind of support has been sufficient to support more than a few coups.

Anyone can “create” jobs by essentially buying them . That is what we are doing -buying jobs. They are doing jobs not needed and building things like roads that are not needed. What a waste.

In the 1990′s America transitioned from a manufacturing-based economy to a consumer-based economy.

In the 2000′s we became a credit-based economy.

And now that is (of course) coming to an end. So what does that leave?

From this point forward, America will transition to a COLLECTIONS-based economy. That’s what all the tens of thousands of census and IRS workers are putting into place now.

These “fundamental transformations” always work the same way. Within two years, the income tax will be a fond memory, and it will be all about wholesale government confiscation of property.

I’ve lived in this district for going on seven years and I’ll never understand it. The woman is clearly uninformed and unintelligent and has never had a real job since graduaing from college. Right now the cities here are in shambles financially, Broward County as a whole is rife with corruption, and yet she’ll probably get close to 70% of the vote again. The problem is that there are never any serious challengers who have the fundraising capabilities she has and she’s viewed as a strong surrogate in an important presidential election district, so she’ll always have support of the big dogs in the Democratic Party ruling out a primary challenge by a Blue Dog or more competent candidate.

Leaving aside the looks of this woman as that doesn’t add to the substance of the debate… The growth in the numbers of people working for the government is truly frightening.

Ordinarily I would say that’s crazy talk. However, if they lay off, and rehire, enough census workers, she could be right.

A couple of months ago I saw this thing sit through two whole segments of one of the Sunday interview shows with a runny nose. After a commercial break I was amazed to see that neither she nor anyone else had taken care of her leak.
I’d never seen this before in that type of setting.

She probably needs her staff to haul her in out of the rain, and I wouldn’t lend credence to anything that came out of her mouth (or nose) after that pathetic scene.

ontherocks on May 28, 2010 at 4:53 PM

MSM won’t tell the story this way, but here’s the accurate timeline:

1) Internet bubble gets bigger and bigger in late 90s.
2) Clinton and Raines start aggressive “enforcement” of the Community Reinvestment Act.
3) Internet bubble pops, giving Bush a recession to start his presidency. 9/11 happens to make it double dip.
4) Bush cuts taxes, economy is stimulated. Jobs are created pretty darn quickly.
5) Fannie and Freddie create a market for high risk mortgages and lawyers wielding the CRA push more and more bad mortgages onto banks.
6) For the first time since tracking started, housing becomes wildly unpegged from inflation and creates artificial wealth for hundreds of thousands of households. They borrow against that and spend massively.
7) Beginning in 2001, Bush warns 24 times that Fannie and Freddie and the market they are creating will cause a huge crash in the economy.
8) 2006 the bubble gets a hole in it. Everybody on the “news” shows except Peter Schiff are saying the party is going to continue.
9) 2008 the bubble explodes and home prices sharply turn back towards what they should be. Trillions of dollars of value, that wasn’t real to begin with, is wiped off the books and the banks ledgers are trashed.

Bush didn’t cause this. He tried to stop it. The MSM had stripped him of all the political capital vis-a-vis Iraq he would need to get the Democrats to stop Fannie and Freddie from creating the bubble. That’s all documented for those Jimbo’s out there. Go search for the CRA on YouTube.

The Dumbocrats, on control of Congress since 2006, ignored all the warnings, praised F & F, and allowed this recession to happen.

The difference is Bush crushed the recession he interited with tax cuts, and with help from the housing bubble had a good run there. Obama and his regime and the Democrats are making it worse, pulling more and more money out of the private sector to waste, have already increased the deficit four times more than Bush did, and are only creating temporary government and Vista/Americorps jobs.

PastorJon on May 28, 2010 at 5:08 PM

Seriously, how can a comparison be done without including 9/11 in the story, Ed?

9/11 removed at least full third of the countries GNP from 2001 and reduced 2002 by a substantial amount as well.

What is more amazing is how quickly we recovered and returned to equilibrium.

I am always amazed that Democrats never remember these facts when they do economic comparisons — not!

LifeTrek on May 28, 2010 at 5:15 PM

the Obama administration would create as many jobs in 2010 as during “the entire Bush presidency,”

The kind of “jobs” used to describe the media’s treatment of Barry really shouldn’t count here. Although if there are any leftist journalists that pay taxes, I’m sure they would appreciate being able to write off their kneepads as a business expense.

malclave on May 28, 2010 at 5:23 PM

People keep calling Wasserman-Schultz stupid.

No, she’s not stupid, she’s deliberately distorting the truth. She knows it works, too, because (1) the media will cover for her (2) lots of Americans are stupid, lazy and indifferent; (3) the big lie has proven to work.

She’s a real rainmaker for the democrats – a really big fundraiser. Wealthy liberal Jews open their pocketbooks for her. She very a far left, abortion-loving, gun confiscating, socialist, and one of a new breed that is soft on Israel.

She is evil, not stupid. In fact, she’s very intelligent. She would be a worthy successor to Pelosi.

I am not sure if you were being sarcastic or not however that is incorrect.

I will assume you were not for this comment.

Lets assume I have a govt job that pays me 100k a year.

The government will never be able to tax me (so they can pay someone else)and pay me at the same time.

If my government salary was taxed at 25% then I only earn 75k and some other government employee person gets paid 25k.

In the end if you tax every government employee everyone will be paid by the government and only a % will be taxable to pay other peoples salaries.

F15Mech on May 28, 2010 at 8:33 PM

The Dems have not much left to brag about other than pure spin. Since government jobs are a drag on the economy (paid for by you and me), they definitely need to be left out of the equation. They just add to our deficit and do literally nothing to improve our economy.

ILUVTX on May 28, 2010 at 8:39 PM

Obama just publicly said “now is not the time for profits” a couple of weeks ago, and people hire employees for the purpose of making profits. Is Obama going to say “Okay, it’s time for profits, now!” next year and start a new hiring spree?

Paradoxically, if the Democrats lose big in November, and if people start feeling certain that Obama is a one termer, they might start hiring and Obama might get credit for the job creating and get reelected. Just like how the economy tanked when it became apparent that Obama was likely to win in the months before the 2008 election.

I was going after the “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” sarcasm.

In order to perpetuate a growing Public employment, with shrinking Private employment, someone has to pay for the salaries and yearly increases. Public jobs are paid for through taxation. Since Public jobs do not produce anything, i.e. a product or service sold on the open market for a profit, like Private jobs do, my point is that a cyclical effect takes place when growing Public jobs.

In short, Wasserman-Schultz may be technically correct in this claim, thanks to aggressive government expansion and hiring, but it’s a seriously misleading argument. (h/t: HA reader Yossi Kudan)

Wasserman-Schultz was one of the handful of poster-heads who made similar misleading (or, rather, downright dishonest) sales pitches (err, rather, demands) for the Obama Healthcare mess.

She’s very sure of what she’s saying and I suppose it knocks little old people over as also foments the Leftwing in general but it doesn’t change the fact that Wasserman-Schultz is lying. O.K., call it exaggerating. Call it pushing pretty-word-stories that intentionally mislead others. Or just call it lying.

Lourdes on May 29, 2010 at 2:12 PM

Surely her sales pitches include all those “forced numbers” of “jobs created” among the U.S. Census (by Dept. of Commerce). Same thing almost certainly occuring among “Green Jobs” and “Healthcare”.

Lourdes on May 29, 2010 at 2:14 PM

I’ve actually seen this creature in S. Florida. Something to behold, indeed. Behold the epitome of uninformed stupidity. A political hack who fails to meet even the minimum of grooming standards in her own venue.

Yes, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) was apparently serious yesterday when she told Stuart Varney that the Obama administration would create as many jobs in 2010 as during “the entire Bush presidency.”

She’s probably right! I can see 20 to 30 million people being hired to pick-up Southern seashore tarballs.

What is the definition of new job. First jobs are classified by the Department of Labor, second new is something that has not existed before.

For Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) Ms. to make such a claim, we should begin seeing a flurry of jobs that have never existed before. A recent review of the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) does not show such a spike in newly created jobs or functions.

Therefore, the claim of Job Creation is untrue. What is occurring is existing functions, vacated through retirement or downsizing, are being filled or just eliminated in terms of reorganization thus giving the impression that new jobs have been created.

Remember, President Obama warned U.S. that it is all words just words and he and Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) Ms.is giving U.S. just words.

Also, it is my opinion that hyphenated persons (African-Americans or Jones-Smith) are in conflict about what or who they really are.

And then the aliens will come down and make the BP oil spill go away, and then the earth will heal itself, and then the Arabs and Israelis will make lasting peace.

What planet is this hosebag from?
