Last week's jobs report was bad, bad, bad. But as Jon Stewart pointed out last night, that didn't stop Democrats from trying to "spin this turd into something positive." For instance, Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) noted that there are technically more jobs this month than last, it's just that there are also, through the magic of population growth, more people! Democratic strategist David Goodfriend argued that things aren't so bad for workers in places like Florida, Virginia, Ohio, and Iowa – essentially the "f@#k you unless you live in a swing state" strategy. And Obama campaign bigwigs David Axelrod and Stephanie Cutter took a third approach that Stewart calls the "they suck harder" argument: Sure, the job numbers are bad news for Obama, but let's change the subject to things we can blame on Bush, Congress, and Mitt Romney.
