    Let's get real about job losses

    This morning Chris Hayes on his morning show Up said that George Bush had a net job loss under his two terms and gave some number he pulled out of his butt or out of the butt of the some Democrat partisan who made it up.

    The truth is that it's not really important which President was staying at the White House while jobs have been lost -- it's the result of decades of government interventions in the economy, debt and a failed education system, just to name a few reasons. Both Bush and Obama have continued the interventionist ways of our statist government, and they both deserve blame to that extent. But, to play some silly game about which President lost or created the most jobs is so ludicrous it amazes me that people as smart as Hayes play the game. It's the government system and the consequences from all government interventions and growth killing regulations, not the bozos pretending to be in charge of the system.
