Wasn't that a terrible time?

Here's just one reason why B.C. got a little hacked when the disciples were throwing down on the Clinton years:

Dean Baker: "Total private sector job gains in the Bush years may fall below 3 million by November. The annual average for the Clinton years was 2.6 million."

RE OBAMA: As some have already noted, vultures are circling over his newly nuanced language on Iraq policy. It's being "refined," he says. This link will give you the best possible spin from an Obamaist's point of view on the hubbub. Doesn't matter if this analyst is right, however. The dominant story line today -- and probably forever -- is that he's backpedaling. Again. But this time on his defining issue -- withdrawing troops from Iraq. Where's that Black Eyed Peas guy now?
