Bikini Graph time! Jobless rate reaches four-year low. Blame Obama.


Thanks to Steve Benen at The Maddow Blog, it's Bikini Graph time! Now with extra crispy bonus graphitude! Here's your bonus:

Seems the economy added far more jobs in November than expected, so President Obama will get all the credit, right GOP? After all, the unemployment rate is at a four-year low, things are looking up on the president's watch, and things crash-landed on GW Bush's.

Can I get a "yippee!" from Republicans?


Of course, those on the right love their austerity measures, which means they'll do everything they can to tank the economy again. Oh, that wacky GOP and their endless wisdom! What will we do with them?

I have a few ideas.

But anyway:

Red columns point to monthly job totals under the Bush administration, while blue columns point to job totals under the Obama administration.

Ahem. That would be 33 straight months of job growth totaling nearly 5.6 million jobs. Right there in black and white... and red and blue. Or as Republicans call it, skewed.
