The job market has been improving, sluggishly but steadily. Jobs have been added for 24 straight months. There are now 325,000 more than when Obama took office.

As someone who is going to vote for Obama, I couldn't agree with this more:

tinyurl.com/gawker-obama-debate

Politics makes for strange bedfellows; more importantly—like beer—it makes for bedfellows of diminished quality but increased ardor. Afflicted for most of our adult lives with seemingly terminal spiritual and intellectual blueballs, political-beer-goggles take hold, until someone objectively only mildly satisfactory seems like destiny. In the right kind of bar, Destiny is the candidate's name. In leftist politics, aching rescue takes the form of a career centrist like Obama—who winds up in besotted New Yorker cartoons depicted as FDR.
Ha!

What a load of horseshit.

I'm going to go poke myself in the eye now with a stick for reading that.
How is that horseshit?

OK, I thought you were referring to the substance of the piece, not complaining about the long words.

Jobs were added?

When did we ever look at jobs added as a statistic?

Unemployment is the stat we always looked at.

No matter how many jobs were created if unemplyment is still above 8% than we are doing bad.

Of course jobs are going to be added. The economy is artificialy in recession.

Obama's failings cannot stop everything.
So I guess we're doing good? Unemployment is at 7.8.

I gave up on trying to follow along after I got annoyed with the writing style.

What did it say?
Mostly that it's a losing strategy to go into a debate and try to talk about the technical details of policy. The Republicans have always done better at this kind of stuff by using simple talking points that people can easily relate to.
