As Donald Trump touts dubious to flat out untrue claims of saving or creating hundreds of jobs, President Obama will leave office with the longest consecutive job creation streak in 75 years.
Donald Trump's gloom and doom campaign may have been dealt a final blow by an October jobs report that showed unemployment falling below 5%, and 161,000 new private sector jobs created.
The White House is taking a victory lap upon the release of the December jobs report, reminding everyone that President Obama said, "The verdict is clear: Middle-class economics works. Expanding opportunity works."
President Obama is blowing his Republicans critics away by setting the fastest job growth pace since Bill Clinton was president in 2000.
Republicans ran on, and won big with, their claim that the GOP is "the party of solutions" founded on conservative pro-growth economic policies, deregulation, and tax cuts for the rich they claimed were more successful than anything "hapless" Democrats or Obama could ever hope to achieve. This is despite the President's nearly five-year job growth record, world-leading GDP growth, and increased revenue paying down the nation's debt at a record pace.
The mainstream media's constructed storyline is that the 2012 election is all about the economy and jobs, but this election will hinge not on the economy but one simple question.
Facts are not on the conservatives' side, as the numbers reveal that Obama has created nearly double the amount of jobs that George W. Bush did.
