Fact Check: Bill Clinton's 'jobs score' of parties claim rings trueSubmitted by Phaminem on Fri, 09/07/2012 - 11:26
I'm kind of a forum lurker here on DailyPaul and don't post much, but was wondering if any of you could really provide an adequate explanation for Bill Clinton's accurate claim at the DNC 2012. He said that in the last 52 years, Republican presidents presided over 28 years and Democratic presidents presided over 24 years. However, Republicans produced only 24 million jobs during that period, while Democrats produced 42 million jobs.
I know that you also have to understand who controlled the majority of Congress during those terms and there were the stock/dot-com bubbles during Clinton's years, housing bubble through Bush Jr.'s years, etc. But how can I explain this to my friends? Thanks!
