Description

Hometown Backers Come to President Hoover's Defense The Honolulu Advertiser The Democrats say it over and over: George W. Bush is the first president since Herbert Hoover to lose jobs on his watch. When they hear it, the folks in West Branch wince. "They've dug up poor Mr. Hoover again and tried to turn him into the boogeyman of the campaign," said Tim Walch, director of the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum. Admirers defend the Hoover administration and point out that the former president became one of the great humanitarians of the 20th century with his efforts to stop world hunger. The basic charge is true: Bush, who has seen 2.2 million jobs disappear during his term, will be the first president since Hoover to end his first four years with fewer jobs than when he took office.
