Forward Progressives — Oops! Chris Christie Admits Obama’s Economic Policies Have Worked, Economy Has Improved
So, let’s see. Chris Christie is claiming that his “leadership” has resulted in 143,000 private-sector jobs (a “True” statement) starting the very first full month he assumed office. You know, when his policies had absolutely no impact on New Jersey’s economy.
But that was when the country as a whole experienced its first month (first of what would be 44 consecutive months — and counting) of private-sector job growth. You know, when President Obama’s economic policies began to show their true impact following the worst economic crash our country had seen in nearly a century.
Now, if Christie had just taken office (meaning it was impossible his policies had any chance at having an impact on New Jersey’s economy as of yet) and private-sector job growth was already established (and continues to grow to this day) it’s clear that his leadership wasn’t the triggering point for that job growth.
In other words, either the private-sector job growth is due in part to his predecessor — or the successful economic policies of the Obama administration triggered it.
Oh, and so much for that “job-killing Obamacare,” huh?
