2.6 Million Reasons to Vote for Bush

George Bush and his administration were loudly chastised for predicting that 2.6 million jobs would be created this year. Liberals had a field day in January through March as lackluster employment figures were announced. In fact, the administration backed off of their prediction in February.

Today, the Labor Department reported 288,000 new jobs were created in the month of April. Unemployment dropped to 5.6%. To top it off, March's payroll gains were revised upward to 337,000 new jobs. Job growth is now up 8 months in a row. For 2004 year to date, average monthly job growth is 217,000! Extrapolate that pace through the rest of the year and what do you get? 2.6 million new jobs for 2004!

Poor John Kerry - now what can he stump about now that the economy is starting to sizzle? The liberal left calling for the resignation of Rumsfeld and an investigation into the Iraqi prisoner 'scandal' is a clear sign that the Democratic party is officially desperate in their attempts to discredit this administration.
