Your graphs backfire. What your graphs actually show is that the economy and jobs were on the rebound under Bush.
New presidents inherit the tax, spending, trade, and regulatory policies of their predecessors, and it takes a year or more for them to put their policies in place.
A President does have an important role to play in the macro economy, but much of what a President can affect requires a “trickle-down” effect which may take years to for its impact to be felt.
