If it's all about jobs, Obama wins

Posted By on Sat, Sep 15, 2012 at 10:57 AM

From today's New York Times:

THE job numbers in recent months have been disappointing, encouraging Republicans who hope that the slow pace of recovery will cause voters to reject President Obama.

But buried in the numbers was one accomplishment that serves only to emphasize how poorly the American economy has performed since 2000. The pace of creation of jobs in the private sector during the current administration is now greater than the pace in either of President George W. Bush’s terms in office.

More inconvenient facts for those who live in the reality-based world. The faith-based liars of the Romney/Lyin' Ryan campaign will find them no obstacle. They'll have a re-spin quicker than you can run a three-hour marathon.
