    6.7 million jobs so far.

    the private sector has done surprisingly well under Mr. Obama, adding 6.7 million jobs since he took office, compared with just 3.1 million at this point under President George W. Bush.

    Happy New Year!

    Since the day Obama first took office, the U.S. economy has created more than 5 million jobs; if you measure from the low point of the “Great Recession,” as the administration prefers, the number approaches 10 million.

    Even the Affordable Care Act — which Republicans still claim to want to repeal — turned out not to be the job killer that critics imagined.

    I’ve noticed the comments here and on Trulia and Zillow for Washington have been way down for several months. Hard to reconcile with the sales activity and prices. Maybe the Internet really is just a fad! ;-)
