Rather than play dueling statistics, the Republicans should have taken advantage of existing red/blue data [and said this:]:

And the vast majority of these jobs were created in states like Texas which have been successful precisely because they have labor and tax policies which you, Mr. Obama, oppose.

IIRC, Texas's great record of job creation was through government jobs. The private sector actually declined in Texas, except in the Walmart greeter segment. Under Obama, the private sector rose, but was offset by government job declines, a position I believe Republicans favor. So, all that said, I'm wondering what the heck you think your criticism is and by what means you support it. Because based on my understanding, you actually appear to stand in favor of Obama and his policies.
