Facts Are Stubborn Things

An August 1, 2003 statement from Nancy Pelosi chastised President Bush for failing to create jobs:
The fact is that President Bush's misguided economic policies have failed to create jobs. Since President Bush took office, the country has lost 3.2 million jobs, the worst record since President Hoover. And today we learned that in July nearly half a million people gave up looking for a job.

Fact: There were 14.8 million unemployed in January 2010.

Fact: There were 11.6 million unemployed in January 2009.

Fact: 14.8 million minus 11.6 million equals 3.2 million.

Fact: Bush had been President for 2 1/2 years when Pelosi issued the above release.

Fact: Obama has been President for 1 year.

Fact: Nancy Pelosi will never acknowledge these facts.
