It's Official – Obama Is Worst President in History on Job Creation; Worse Than Hoover on Job Losses

How’s that Hopey-Changey Stuff treating you?

(Misery Index data)

Since his election in 2008, the US economy has shed 4.4 million jobs. That’s worse than Herbert Hoover.
News Alert reported this from Bloomberg Businessweek:

According to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. shed 2.3 million jobs since February 2009, Obama’s first full month in office. Going back to World War II, that is by far the worst record for any president in his first 17 months, outpacing the job destruction experienced in the early Bush years by more than 800,000 jobs…

For Obama, there is an even worse way to play the data, which might just become fodder for a political ad: From November 2008, the month he was elected, until now, the economy has shed an astonishing 4.4 million jobs. That’s worse than Hoover.
