Have any Democrat Presidents created more jobs over their terms than Bush did over his?
Bush created 3 million. Could Jimmy Carter possibly have created that many? I am looking for a good source to compare job creation under Democrats vs Republicans. We know those tax cuts added a lot of jobs. I found this. http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2009/01/09/bush-on-jobs-the-worst-track-record-on-record/ Is the Wall Street Journal a Lib paper ?

FDR started a lot of public work programs and also declared World War Two (with the advice and consent of Congress) so these two things make FDR the leader of the Democrats for having the most jobs created during his administrations

No. Bush created WAY more Jobs than Obama, and nore even at his peak than Clinton. They try to tear Bush down. They are incorrect.

Every time a Democrat gets voted in they have to clean up the mess a Republican made, and then people forget and blame Democrats.

With respect, you need to break down jobs in the private sector with jobs in the government sector...because, government jobs to not contribute to our GNP, the government produces nothing.

It continues to amaze me how the Liberal Democrats just invent numbers and expect the sheep to just say, "oh ya, I guess that's right." Clinton did NOT create 23 million jobs.

dumb luck has more to do with job creation than being president. Just look at Clinton and the luck he had with the technology boom and Bushes first 6 years with the mortgage scam created by democrat policy.
