In the matter of Bush v. Obama, bush is the clear loser.

Jobs were lost, house prices fell and the stock market plummeted when the economic crisis hit.

But how has the nation faired since the recession hit in 2009? A recent infographic from VizCandy, a visual analytics blog, compares the George W. Bush years versus the time since President Obama was elected.

Private jobs in the country began post-recession recovery in January 2010 and are now equal to those of March 2005, according to the graphic.

The S&P 500 hit 56.5 in February 2009 and has risen to 100.9 in 2012.

“Corporations appear to have rebounded with the S&P 500 currently twice the level it was at when Bush left office,” Kelly Martin, the graphic’s creator, said in her post. “So, where are the jobs?”

Mortgages defaults have also fallen since Obama took office, but are still above levels when they began climbing in the summer of 2006

It must hurt deeply that Obama has been SO successful.
