Economist Dean Baker disputes the New York Times claim that "Mr. Bush has spent much of his presidency riding high on claims of solid job growth."
Not so, says Baker. Job growth has actually been pretty bad through most of President Bush's time in office. How bad? President Bush comes in dead last in job creation among recent presidents, even falling behind his dad's dismal record. Ouch!
No wonder recent polls show Bush is the most unpopular president in modern American history.
