These stats are cooked in a laughable way. 2008 was the depth of the recession, and the protocol for measuring jobs has changed since then. 2012 figures don't take into account jobs that have been lost in the meanwhile. Our net job picture is no better than 2009. Left out also is the lost growth opportunities Mr. Soetoro's bad policies have sown.I don't think stats matter here, anyway. Is there any level of bad economic news that would have you voting against Obama? I don't think anything would deter you.
