Bikini Graph shows Pres. Obama's 31st consecutive month of private sector job growth


These are the facts, voters.

UPDATE: More facts, more charts, more proof that the economy is on the upswing. "Something big is really underway!" Just go!

So are these:

Bill Clinton:

"A lot of Americans are still angry and frustrated about this economy. If you look at the numbers, you know employment is growing, banks are beginning to lend again, and in a lot of places, housing prices have even beginning to pick up. But too many people do not feel it yet. I had this same thing happen in 1994 and early 1995. We could see that the policies were working, that the economy was growing, but most people didn't feel it yet. Thankfully, by 1996, the economy was roaring, everybody felt it, and we were halfway through the longest peacetime expansion in the history of the United States.

But the difference this time is purely in the circumstances. President Obama started with a much weaker economy than I did. Listen to me now. No president - not me, not any of my predecessors - no one could have fully repaired all the damage that he found in just four years."

    Of course it takes time to turn around an economy, especially one as big as ours.  People need to realize that there were so many things happening all at once and it seemed absolutely impossible that we'd turn it around in a decade, much less just four years.  But we are reversing the trend, things are getting better - albeit slowly - but we're getting there.  It doesn't happen overnight - it CAN'T happen overnight.  There isn't a magic bullet for this.

    Obama is doing a very good job.   You have to go outside your bubble and look at what is actually going on.  Things aren't great but they are TONS better than they were four years ago when we were losing hundreds of thousands of jobs a month.

    Indeed. There is a letter in my local MI paper calling for patience with Gov. Snyder, the emergency manager czar, because 'success takes time.' I wrote and asked the writer if she was as willing to give Obama more time. Right.
