A Little Note About Jobs

Knowing that we are about to experience a ten month onslaught of Republican lies about Obama's supposed responsibility for our rotten economy, I want to try to assemble some of the real evidence.  Here's a little chart of unemployment claims since January 2007:

I think this chart is pretty self-explanatory.  Here's a further interesting piece of information, the figures for job growth for the last several Januaries:

January 2008: +13,000
January 2009: -820,000
January 2010: -39,000
January 2011: +68,000
January 2012: +243,000

I'm sure you can get the message here pretty easily.
