Say, maybe you've asked yourself this question: "Self, we're kinda adding jobs at a slow rate. How long would it take Obama's economy to get back to where we were before the financial crash?"

Glad you asked!

Go ahead, punch in today's number of 155,000 jobs added. At this rate, Obama will have pre-recession employment all sewn up by...2025!

But don't worry, gang. We only need to increase that number to 325,000 a month, each and every month, to get back to where we the end of Obama's second term.

Remember when libs used to point at Bush's 5-6% unemployment rates and whine about jobless recoveries? Good times, good times.
