It’s important to remember that the whole matter of “Job Creation”, easily the favorite employment statistic of the Left, is a complete red herring. At best, it’s only one side of the equation; the other side includes people who have lost their jobs, officially stopped looking for work, etc.

The most useful measure of employment, the Labor Force Participation Rate, continues to go nowhere but down, to levels not seen in 30 years. You’ll never hear a liberal talk about that.

Obama is following the pattern set by corporate “leaders” who’s #1 priority is to stay one job ahead of their past mistakes. Rob from the future, eat your seed corn, etc - just do whatever it takes to show “progress” month/quarter over month/quarter. It’s sad that the American people have become so gullible, stupid, or apathetic that they don’t instantly ask the question “what about the other side of the equation” whenever this crap is presented.

It reminds me of the great old George Carlin “Wonderful WINO Radio” bit, where he says “And now for a partial score: San Diego 10”....
