So, commenting on yesterday’s disappointing job numbers, Mitt Romney said that we should be creating 500,000 jobs a month. People like Paul Krugman jumped on the comment, and remarked that it proved that Romney knew nothing about employment rates or the economy in general.
Funny. I don’t recall them saying or writing such things when someone else promised two years ago that eventually, 500,000 jobs a month would be created. I guess that the worst you could say about Romney was that he took seriously a pledge from the second-highest ranking constitutional officer in the Obama administration.
