PELOSI: Absolutely. Actually, President Obama was a job creator from day one. Because of initiatives he took when he became president and his recovery package and other federal action, 3 1/2 million jobs were either created or saved. Economists say that without those initiatives, instead of 9 1/2, unacceptable, 9 1/2 percent unemployment we would have 14 1/2 percent unemployment in our country, a depression. So he has created more jobs and last year than were created more private sector jobs than were created in the eight years of the Bush administration. It is not enough. It is certainly not enough but he’s on the right path.
Where did that 9.5 figure come from? When Bush left unemployment was less and under the democrats unemployment has risen. I would guess if a doctor put a flashlight to one side of Pelosi’s head they could see a light shining on the opposite wall through the ears
