More clueless BS about something you know nothing about.

In the real world....the reversal in employment numbers for full-time vs part-time jobs was very clearly linked to the Great Ressession brought on by the disastrous failures of Bush's crackpot economic policies, and the switch to more part-time jobs than full-time peaked in 2009 and 2010, right after Bush left and Obama started to turn the economy around. As the economy recovered and started to improve under Presidnt Obama's skillful leadership, the gap between full and part-time jobs diminished and again reversed in 2015 with, once again, more full-time jobs than part-time jobs in the economy. This trend is continuing due to the good work Obama did on rescuing the economy from the destructive greed of the failed Republican policies.

As is explained in detail here, with some good graphs....
The Ratio of Part-Time Employed: August 2017

And moreover....

Trump touts 'great jobs numbers' that aren't actually so great
LA Times

A few short excerpts....

President Trump on Monday touted the “great jobs numbers” since he took office — numbers that his own administration’s statistics show aren’t all that great....From February through May — the latest data available — the U.S. economy has created 594,000 net new jobs, according to the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s fewer than the 659,000 created during the final four months of the Obama administration, which Trump criticized for its job growth.

So far, 2017 is on track to produce the fewest net new jobs in seven years....So if there have been “great jobs numbers” under Trump, then they were even greater under President Obama....The average of 162,000 net new jobs a month so far this year is off last year’s figure of 187,000....At the current pace, the U.S. would add about 1.9 million jobs in 2017. It would be the first time since 2010 the figure was below 2 million.

You are comparing one quarter, with yearly averages.
Not very honest....
Especially since the first 6 months of Trump comes in at 1.9%, I don't you touting that.
And when the third quarter falls off, will that be due to Obama?

My point is, we haven't seen a quarter yet that has a Trump Budget, and Trump policies, this is still Obama's last fiscal year, the Obama budget, the Obama tax rates.
But hey, I see your point, 3% may be the best quarter Trump ever has, so you want to spike the football while you have the chance.

This is Annual with 1 more quarter (the best quarter to go)


Bush had ANNUAL growth of >5%.. >3% 6 of his 8 years.

Once again you are making up numbers and you really don't know enough to make them even slightly believable....

You judge a president from where he starts to where he finishes.
That's why history is so hard on Bush Jr, and why history makes Obama look so good.
If you run the Bush film backwards, he's great, he'd start with a huge deficit, and end with a surplus, but in reality it was the other way around.
Obama started with a huge deficit and an economy in freefall, he ended with an impressive record of growth, given the circumstances, we have low unemployment, high stock market, and steady growth.
This is where Trump starts, let's see where he takes us.

Your signature line - "I am gibberish." - seems to be quite accurate......unfortunately that is the only accurate thing in your rather deranged posts.
