|You're welcome America.|
The final tally is in: 11.3 million new jobs were created under President Obama.
The president is claiming a big victory on getting Americans back to work again.
"Businesses that were bleeding jobs unleashed the longest streak of job creation on record," Obama wrote in a letter to the American people this week.
He's right: The economy has added jobs for 75 straight months, although his overall jobs gains aren't as strong as some prior presidents.
Sure other Presidents had more success at creating jobs, but then those guys did not enter office with the country losing 800,000 jobs a month, and hurtling towards a second Great Depression.
Nor did they have to contend with an opposition party that was determined to undermine EVERY SINGLE policy that they put forward.
In light of all that President Obama's achievement is historic.
