Interesting article. Perhaps the funniest aspect of the jobs spin this weekend has been Snow's newest suggestion that we "should see what's going to happen in the SECOND HALF!"
Funny...in a "oh my gosh, the sky is falling" kind of way. But of course he has to say that - this is an election year. Crudele knows that - and that's why it's very easy for him to "predict" the incumbent will paint a rosy picture on just about everything in the coming months.
But that's not nearly the most interesting part of the read. It's the metrics behind the jobs numbers that are absolutely laughable - and precisely the reason why I took you to task for "knowing" the number would come in so low. I mean, who would - and according to the read you posted - who could? Crudele knows knows the game and that's why he backs off the "evil motive" theme in his article.
