Now I Know Why The Democrats Here Keep Side-Stepping the Question of Comparing First Year Jobs Created Between Trump and Obama

Instead, when asked, they've been comparing Obama's LAST year to Trump's FIRST year. Now I know why.

This is from CNN (not Fox News). It must have killed CNN to report it:

First-year presidential economies:

Barack Obama - 2009
Jobs lost: 4.3 million
Unemployment: Rose from 7.8% to 9.8%
S&P 500: Ended the year at 1,115.10, up 23.5%
GDP: Down 2.8%

Donald Trump - 2017
Jobs Created: 2.1 million
Unemployment: Fell from 4.8% to 4.1%
S&P 500: Ended year at 2,673.61, up 19%
GDP: Up 2.3%

BTW, Libbies, that's how you do a "Apples to Apples" comparison.

Context is important

Obama was sworn into office in January 2009, and like all Presidents, had his first chance at implementing his own budget Fall of ‘09.

People with a brain know that it takes time to implement plans and put them into action. Much of what happens in the first six to nine months post inauguration is simply a continuation of the previous administrations actions. So Obama walked into the Republicans crumbling economy in 2009, and it obviously took time to implement his policies to reverse the Bush Great Depression 2.0. Trump took office in January 2017, at the height of the Obama recovery, and didn’t get a chance to implement his first budget until last Fall

Actually, that's wrong. Obama walked into Democrat policies, since the Dems took the majority in Congress two years earlier in 2006, before he won. The Depression came AFTER 2 years of Dem policies.

Exactly...

Now people with brain know, with context, exactly what happened.

This is true, but Bush pushed for the progressive home loan lending for the poor. Bush/Clinton/Obama are almost identical. Neocons/Dems basically the same thing.
