Ahead of today’s big jobs report, the Left was already getting its talking points in order.
Paul Begala, the former counselor to President Bill Clinton, tweeted a YouTube video of presumed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney saying he helped turn Massachusetts’s job landscape around in his first year as governor. What Begala is hanging on to, however, is that it took eleven months for that turnaround to take place.
I bet the beleaguered Boston team is wishing they could Etch A Sketch that video away today.

Begala and other liberal Twitter users are suggesting that this video will embarrass Romney and essentially put him in the shoes of President Barack Obama, who has been struggling with high unemployment numbers since being elected in 2008.
Was Romney out of line for saying that he couldn’t create 50,000 jobs in his first day as governor? Not at all. But since the jobs report that was released earlier today was mediocre, we can expect to see more of this video.
