Clinton's statement on job creation

Recommended Posts

natty    555

"Since 1961, for 52 years now, the Republicans have held the White House 28 years, the Democrats 24," Clinton said. "In those 52 years, our private economy has produced 66 million private-sector jobs. So what's the jobs score? Republicans 24 million, Democrats 42 (million)."

It's true. Is it significant in any way?

It was something that stood out to me when listening to his speech as something that has little relevance. But it does fly in the face of those who think having a democrat in office makes businesses worry simply because there's a democrat in office(yes, I have heard this arugment).

I don't know. I'll have to compare it to the last job creator's speech at the RNC in Tampa, George W Bush

The President does not really have much control over such things but it is indeed true, I heard Trump talk to Howard Stern about it a year or so ago.

Extrapolate that to when a dem president has a dem majority in Congress (both houses).

Same for republican.

Then run those numbers.

lol you're too predictable.

So you think hybrid situations where a d president with a r senate and a d house....is a better analysis against one that's the same across the board?

If by data analytical predictable...then yes.

Clinton wants everyone to forget about the dotcom bubble, Glass-Steagal teeth removed by him...etc.

Clinton had to be drug kicking and screaming to sign the republican balanced budget, and then lobbied against the BBA. Clinton talks a big game and has a great sales pitch.

Because G5, it almost sounds like you are suggesting that Clinton had to reach something called a compromise in order to get things done - perhaps even with people whose priority was to "make things better" not "work to make sure Clinton is defeated" and we all know that would never ever work.
