    Not good enough, imagine what we could do if the US Gvt. wasn't trying to drown the economy in a bathtub.

      ...it's the third best performance for job creation in August in the past decade.

      Sadly, that is as much a reflection on how weak job creation has been in the past decade as it is anything else.  As a result, Obama's record on job creation looks good when compared to George W Bush's record -- but the past decade generally represents the weakest job creation over an extended period of time since WWII.
