6. You're welcome. I mostly did it so we could use bits of it to beat over the heads of righties in

the message board wars. In news.yahoo.com news article comments sections, I'm constantly getting beaten over the head for touting Obama's job creation record of the last 30 months (4.6 million private sector jobs), rather than his whole term, and I'm being bashed when I compare his job record to Bush's entire 8-year presidency (MINUS 0.7 million private sector jobs) because I'm comparing Obama's best months to Bush's entire presidency. So it was great when Norman Goldman (progressive talk radio host) alerted his listeners to this clip where Romney made exactly the same argument about his job creation record -- "sure it's minimal but it is my predecessor's fault, but lookie here now, I got things turned around, and since the turnaround, look how great I did" (wildly paraphrasing of course).
