The jobs numbers don’t paint a good picture over all. Unemployment went back up slightly.The number Mr. Obama will want us to pay attention to is private sector job growth. According to the government, private sector jobs went up and the growth of unemployment is attributed to those census workers leaving their jobs.In fact, I’m already getting emails from Democrats saying I’m being disingenuous to focus on the overall picture.But there’s a problem for them. When unemployment was going down, it did so because of the hiring of the 500,000 census workers and Mr. Obama and his band of merry socialists were cheering the numbers as a sign of good news.Live by the temporary census worker jobs. Die by the temporary census worker jobs.Unemployment went up.
