Mitt Romney gave a speech at a shuttered Gypsum plant in Ohio yesterday, using it as a backdrop to claim that Obama has failed to create jobs.
There are just a couple of problems. First of all, the plant was closed four years ago, before Obama was elected. And second, when Obama was sworn in, unemployment in Ohio stood at 8.6%. It peaked at 10.6% during the second half of 2009, but it now dropped to 7.6% as of February.
Reality doesn’t seem to matter any more.
