SPIN METER: Obama's disconnect in jobs sales pitch

The Associated Press' Erica Werner takes apart Obama's latest convoluted message on jobs, focusing on Obama's version of reality, which has nothing to do with reality.

Bottom line? It's not about jobs, an area where Obama has failed miserably during the past three years, it's about setting up his re-election campaign for 2012. The nation's tens of millions of unemployed are mere pawns in Obama's game.

From Werner's article:
The disconnect between what Obama says about his jobs bill and what stands as the political reality flow from his broader aim: to rally the public behind his cause and get Congress to act, or, if not, to pin blame on Republicans.

He is waging a campaign, one in which nuance and context and competing responses don't always fit in if they don't help make the case.
