Obama Campaign Manager: Obama's Recovery Stronger Than Reagan's


While the Obama campaign continues putting out so many lies it's hard to keep up with, this latest one by campaign manager Stephanie Cutter is a Whopper! We're talking nuclear whopper!

Appearing on MSNBC, she was interviewed by Willie Geist who asked her, "What would you say to that same person that said, ‘Well, that hasn’t worked for four years. I haven’t had the job over time, it’s time for a change.’" Cutter responded,

Well, I think that worker probably has a good understanding of what’s happened over the past four years in terms of the president coming in and seeing 800,000 jobs lost on the day that the president was being sworn in, and seeing the president moving pretty quickly to stem the losses, to turn the economy around, and over the past, you know, 27 months we’ve created 4.5 million private sector jobs. That’s more jobs than in the Bush recovery, in the Reagan recovery, there’s obviously more we need to do, and as I said to Mika at the at beginning of the program, I think that unemployed worker probably sees one person in this race trying to move the country forward and that’s the president.

Well, we know that Barack Obama is no Ronald Reagan and I pointed that out and gave the numbers to prove it. We also know that Stephanie Cutter knows how to put the 'sin' in spin.

In a piece by Jame Pethokoukis titled "Sorry, Stephanie Cutter, the Obama recovery hasn’t created more jobs than the Reagan recovery", he gives Cutter a major rude awakening of the real numbers involved when it comes to jobs and inheriting a bad economy. Remember, Obama inherited nothing like Reagan did. Pethokoukis writes,

From the end of the recession in June 2009 through July 2012 — the first 37 months of the Obama recovery — the U.S. economy has generated 2.7 million net new jobs. From the jobs low point in February 2010, the U.S. economy has generated 4 million net new jobs.

From the end of the 1981-82 recession through the end of of 1985 — the first 37 months of the Reagan recovery — the U.S.created 9.8 million net new jobs. And if you adjust for the larger U.S. population today, the comparable figure is more than 12 million jobs.

Cutter counts the job gains from the low point of Obama’s term forward. The low point was February 2010 when U.S. nonfarm payrolls measured 129,244,00. In July, they measured 133,245,000 for a gain of 4.0 million jobs in 27 months If you measure the Reagan recovery the same way, he created 8.0 million new jobs in 27 months. And if you measure the Bush recovery the same way, the low point was in August 2003 when U.S. employment stood at 129,820,00. But 27 months later, the figure was 134,654,000 in November 2005 — a gain of 4.8 million jobs.

The reality is this: Neither Reagan or Obama actually created any jobs. Reagan simply set the economic policy of the nation so that jobs could be created by private citizens. Obama has done the opposite and thrown money at his backers.

But in terms of the reflection of their numbers side by side, Reagan's record reflects so much better than Obama's. In fact, Jimmy Carter's record reflects better than Obama's.

This must be why the DNC asked Jimmy Carter to address the DNC. Even the previous worst President of the United States fairs better than the current one.

    It is amazing any of those women can be so stupid and still breath, eventhough a body can "live" without a normal brain. The brainstem is what keeps it going -that is why they are led around by the nose. I think they all have no brain with logical thought. Maybe even the walking dead. Now we know where hollywood got the idea. Maybe Nancy Pelosi can send those horrible dentures she wears to Obama's Kenyan Grandmother so she can eat. He let Michelle's mother live in White House but he won't even send his poor Grandmother a pair of dentures.So much for his "caring".

    Obama's recovery about 1.3% GDP, Reagan 7.9% GDP Reagan 1980's worse or as bad as Obama's situation when taking office..circumstances differ but economy equally bad! The fact is...I didn't have to know anything about this person working for Obama..all I had to do was read what she had to say about the economy....Obama wasn't the right person for the job regardless of what party he would have came from!! 3 years and 9 months later should indicate this truth!

    Obama and his gang of crooks come out with so much bull....that it is hard to keep up with it all. Romney's tax return an issue with Obama...not economy or the unemployed the Democrats claim to be looking out for...but regardless, Obama being a millionaire paid 13% in taxes both years he reported before taking America on a down hill ride. Romney also a millionaire paid 14% and 15-17% taxes for both years he (Romney) reported. Then why would Obama make this an issue knowing this truth? Because he knows most Americans are spoon feed anything and vote based on party, not truth!

    Obama hates Corporations, yet corporations support America and flash money comes from small businesses....corporations are generally more stable therefore they are the tax bases. So Obama spins this bull about tax cuts for the big corporations and get democrats all up in arms...protesters carry signs proclaiming tax breaks for the 1%. But I have yet to see one occupy protester claim to employ a member of his so claimed 99%'ers. Corporations pay large taxes, then employment taxes, then insurance taxes in unemployment, and environmental taxes, property taxes...need I continue?

    The bottom line is if Obama get's his way we will live like those happy chinese people with one bowl of rice per family member..no babies without the Chinese Governments permission. Protesters in China get ran over by Tanks in squares...good thing the occupy people haven't gotten their way yet! But, in Obama's own words..."I like the Chinese way of Government...they don't have a Congress (voice of the people), when they want a new law implemented they just do it...no body to stop them". Isn't it sad how the big shots in all these communist countries aren't driving fords, or chevy's...no they have armored caddy's...and the people work around the clock for their Government....wait a minute the Government Forces The Lazy People to Work or they Don't Get Their Bowl of Rice....what am I thinking....Please vote for Obama! Not!

    This is the same woman who said "I will just make up sh-t" and this one was a big pile of it.

  • Oldchopper

    They are so funny to watch and listen to. Better than the liberals in Hollywood, and they're FREE!

  • dantalbot

    What recovery? Obama is a liar, and so are his stooges. One should NEVER associate Obama with a recovery. Wake up and look around, liberals; do you see a "vibrant turnaround"? Such BS, swill, garbage, puke, retch, crap, manure, sewage, dung, trash, etc.

    When will these people be held accountable for the TRUTH and where has it gone?

  • Scientist5

    She was not quite 12 years old when Reagan was sworn in. She learned all about this from Demo spin meisters. It's obvious, she is not capable of distinguishing truth from fiction, or myth from lying. So she just lies.

  • Scientist5

    Stephanie is an out of touch spin meister, and not a very good one. Graduated from Smith College - Boy, I'll bet Barbara Bush and Nacy Reagan, who are both alums, wish she hadn't.
