<I suspect that the 25m jobs destroyed were high quality, Reagan-era jobs and the 40m jobs created
were those wonderful Clintonite positions like midnight basketball counselors and paid Americore
"volunteers" (or whatever that bogus program was called). >

Actually, if memory serves, this same complaint was laid at Reagan's feet during the '80s. RR was criticized extensively for allowing steelworkers, etc. to be laid off and the Dems complained that *all* the new jobs involved the phrase "you want fries with that." The more things change...
