It's Still the Economy Stupid

On August 1, 2003, Nancy (Bella) Pelosi asked this question: “Where are the jobs Mr. President?”.

Question of the day: How many jobs have been created since Nancy Pants made that infamous statement?

Answer: 5,600,000

The unemployment rate was 6.1% then and stands at 4.8% today. This, mind you, is after the Clinton recession, 9-11 attacks, Katrina disaster and the ongoing war on terror have done their damage.

Now what was it that Clinton had to contend with? Oh yea, Monica and Bosnia.
