Does Govt. create private sector jobs?

I'm not sure you can blame a president for job loss or credit a president for job creation --- unless you're talking about PUBLIC sector jobs. Clearly the government can create public sector jobs. Building bridges and roads and infrastructure are the role of government, not private enterprise. As for private sector jobs, government can give incentives to help spur job creation, but can't directly create these jobs. So should the tax breaks and policies encourage the creation of jobs here or overseas? Should we have incentives to create American jobs or to outsource them? The USA is a not just a market -- we are a nation first. The US president should care about US jobs. Should our president.... 1. Create public sector jobs when necessary and give incentives for the creation of private-sector American jobs. 2. Cut public sector jobs and give incentives for outsourcing private-sector American jobs.
