Better off?

September 5, 2012

Romney/Ryan are suggesting that the nation is not better off than it was 4 years ago.  Here’s what it was like in September 2008 (in the words of President Bush).

During the month of November 2008, for instance, Americans lost more than 500,000 jobs.

Bill Clinton, to the Arknasas delegation to the DNC (as reported on Daily Kos):

“This economy that [President Obama] inherited was profoundly ruined. Nobody who’s ever served—no one, including me—has ever been expected to turn it around overnight,” Clinton said. “The economy failed and hit bottom six months after Republicans took office. Nine percent. That’s almost Depression-level shrinkage. And I’ll give you the details tomorrow night, but that’s quite a blow.”

“And it was really interesting to me that when [Obama] was trying so hard to put Americans back to work—two full years before the election—the Senate Republican leader said that their number one goal was not to put America back to work, it was to put the president out of work,” he added.
