Obama, job creator

Krugman this morning reminds everyone that Clinton and Obama are better than Bush at growing the economy:

Both administrations began with a period of falling employment thanks to a burst bubble — but can you see how much more vigorous private job creation was after the Bush trough than after the Obama trough? Neither can I. If job growth has seemed slow under Obama, it’s entirely because of public sector austerity.

But of course, Republicans hope that repeating the lie that tax cuts spur job growth will distract people from the actual evidence. Sadly, they might be right.
