And the usual “secret sauce” was liberally applied to the BLS “revisions” of the Nov. and Dec. numbers to get the 2012 total to 2.2 million jobs created....at least on paper.

No one but the ObamaBots believes this tripe.

You're kidding, right? The BLS’s seasonal adjustments (i.e. special sauce) are not perfect. I prefer to analyze year-on-year not-seasonally-adjusted comparisons. Nonetheless, the CES (current employment statistics) statistics are a reliable reflection of what the BLS observes in its monthly survey of establishments.
