Yahoo! News - Bush Backs Off Forecast of 2.6M New Jobs: "Jobs are a sensitive political issue for Bush as he fights to keep his own job in a second term. The economy has lost 2.2 million payroll jobs since Bush took office, the worst job-creation record of any president since Herbert Hoover. "

Wow, now this is a startling fact. In Bush's defense the economy took a pretty hard hit after 9/11. Still, all of that defense spending should be boosting the job market (at least in those industries).
