Here is a comparison of the job creation record of the most recent past Presidents, one Democratic and one Republican:
"The Bush administration created about three million jobs (net) over its eight years, a fraction of the 23 million jobs created under President Bill Clinton’s administration and only slightly better than President George H.W. Bush did in his four years in office."

Seems like there is a difference in the ability of the two parties to create job growth, priority one in America.
And to the naysayers, it is worth recalling that it took Clinton more than just two years to right the ship and get American job growth rolling after the economic collapse under Bush's father. They called it the jobless recovery until Clinton had a fair chance to get started and then job growth came roaring back.
