Longest Stretch in Manufacturing Employment Gains in 20 Years

from USA Progressive — President Obama has kept his nose to the grindstone in regards to the economy.  Shockingly, as the rest of the world crumbled from 2009-2010, the United States came out better under his leadership.  One data point that came out by Bloomberg is hiring by factories.

The article from Bloomberg states,

President Barack Obama can boast of crossing one milestone: the longest stretch of employment gains in manufacturing in almost two decades.

The BGOV Barometer shows U.S. factory positions have grown since early 2010, arresting a slide that began toward the end of the 1990s. It’s the best showing since the era of Bill Clinton, the only president in the last 30 years to leave office with more factory jobs than when he began.

So, are we where were want to be, no of course not, even President Obama states that fact.  But here is something many Republicans don’t want to hear and those who know will not tell you.  As China and the Euro Zone fight a recession and the consumers there are strapped and cut back on spending and buying things from the United States, this will eventually effect our own economy.  There is nothing, or very little President Obama or any President can do about that.

This is the factor of globalization, which is also something no other President had to face.
