POLITICS: Me No Like You Jobs Record

In looking over a Bloomberg News report on the latest good news on the job-growth front, I came across this bizarre piece of garble:

"In every single month of this administration, we haven't seen the creation of a single manufacturing job in America,'' Kerry, 60, said in an e-mailed statement.

Is Kerry really saying that not one manufacturing job has been created in any month of the last 3+ years? Or that there's been no net gain over that period, or in any month of that period . . . This pileup of double negatives is impossible to argue with because it's incoherent. Now, people make fun of "Bushims" that come out when Bush makes a verbal miscue, often when speaking extemporaneously. But at least when Bush and his team issue something in writing, it sounds good, because Bush hires writers who can, you know, write.

Kerry is saying that Bush's record of creating jobs is pathetic, as is starting an unnecessary war based on false pretenses.
