Bush Jobs

Kerry is taking some hits from nitpickers for saying Bush’s economy lost 1.6 million jobs. Bush fans like to point out that Bush’s disastrous economy is really only down by about 850,000 jobs. They’re correct - in a sense. The economy shed 1.6 million private sector jobs, but this was offset by record growth in public service jobs.

While I’m happy to see people back to work, surely President Bush’s plan to provide government jobs for all unemployed workers is unsustainable.
