Republican Presidents and Jobs

The graphics with this New York Times Op-Ed piece are the most direct and convincing evidence I've seen about the effects that Republican Presidents have historically had on jobs, and comparing Bush's results with Obama's.  Romney has not given any changes that he would make to Bush's policies, nor criticized them in any way that I am aware of.

Either Romney is lying through his teeth when he criticizes Obama's handling of the economy, is abysmally ignorant of economics, and/or cares only about the economy of the richest Americans, rather the economy that 99% of us live in.

More reporters should do this kind of research, rather than taking his outrageous claims at face value.
