As you can see Obama is the only one with a negative jobs number. Notice also that the only two terms where government growth was genuinely slowed was under Ronald Reagan, Dwight Eisenhower (the size of government shrank under Eike), and under the second term of Bill Clinton (Thanks to Newt and the Republican Revolution). As government has grown the expansion of jobs has slowed. Also while Obama shows an unemployment of 8.3%, as has been discussed earlier that number is skewed because so many people have given up looking for work and are now not being counted. The real unemployment rate, known as the U6, is over 15%.
