"Jobs report presents mixed blessing for Obama"

When I saw the headline on Yahoo, I knew it was bad news. A "mixed blessing for Obama" translates roughly into "train wreck" in English. And Yahoo continued their measured analysis. "New jobs numbers certain to give both Obama and Romney something to flesh out talking points" Cut to the chase or more specifically, the crash at the end of the fury. Unemployment went from 8.2% to 8.3%. Spin that one, Axelrod. Yahoo is providing you a starter kit. Chick-Fil-A? Bain Capital? Millionaires and billionaires? The Supreme Court? Widespread racism? They all had keys to the strawberries! So many culprits, so little time.
