Much attention today has been paid to conservatives clamoring that Obama must have orchestrated today's glowing jobs report. The focus has been on the nonsense of conspiracy theories.
However, the underlying point being dulled somewhat is this:
Republicans are fuming about today's amazing jobs numbers, scrambling to explain them away, rather than celebrating signs that America is financially getting stronger.Yes, we are in the midst of a presidential election. And yes, political expediency is the name of the game.
However, those who hate Obama more than they love this country – including those who are elected officials charged with serving the public interest – are those most up-in-arms today.
Not because they are rooting for Mitt Romney. It's because they are rooting against President Obama.
They are rooting against America during a glimmer of hope. That is today's takeaway.
