CNN Fact Check: Clinton arithmetic holds up on jobs

(CNN) - It was a big applause line, one of many for former President Bill Clinton on Wednesday night.

Speaking to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, Clinton - whose presidency unfolded during a boom era for the U.S. economy - told delegates that Democratic administrations had a nearly 2-to-1 advantage over Republicans in creating jobs.

    Arithmetic matters.
    Factcheckers verified Pres. Clinton told the truth, unlike Lyin' Ryan and Pants-On-Fire Romney.

    Of course it does. Which is why we msut continue to elect Democratic Presidents. They are simply better for the economy, jobs, and deficit. The numbers bear this out over and over and over.
