Hey kids, guess what time it is! It’s job creation time! Which means it’s time to bring back that sexy economic data source, the Bikini Graph! That sound you hear is the GOP demanding President Obama’s impeachment for allowing this to happen on his watch. JobsGhazi!!!!
As always, red columns point to monthly job totals under the Bush administration, while blue columns point to job totals under the Obama administration. Me oh my, look at all that blue!
Via Steve Benen at The Maddow Blog, here’s the latest on the new report from Bureau of Labor Statistics, including how the U.S. economy added 292,000 jobs in December, beating projections. The overall unemployment remained at 5% which is the lowest it’s been since February 2008.
Benen (emphasis mine):
