With a report showing lower-than-expected number of new jobs added to the U.S. economy last month, President Obama has come to preside over a recovery that is “dead last in the modern era,” Texas Congressman Kevin Brady said Friday on CNBC.Oh, and can Republicans stop slobbering over Reagan? The guy wouldn't even fit in today's GOP yet people like Brady still have raging hardons for the guy. Move on boys and stop looking to the past that wasn't all that great in the first place.
“This is more than just a bad month or the worst quarter in two years. President Obama, which had ranked dead last in economic growth in the past seven years, with today’s job report also ranks dead last when it comes to job creation,” he said on “The Kudlow Report.”
“In fact, his growth is about half of what we’ve come to expect in these recessions,” he added. “And it pales, obviously, of course, to those of President Reagan, whose job growth was 2½ times greater at this same point.”

GOP Rep. Brady overlooks Bush jobs failure, calls Obama "dead last"
Ah, no, that would be the Bush years where the Republicans dominated Washington for 6 of the 8 years in office. While everyone knows a clown like Larry Kudlow won't be able to recognize reality, the truth is, Rep. Brady is completely wrong. During the full term, Bush only averaged 20,000 jobs per month so if my math is correct, that would be dead last. More from CNBC:
