Creative Destruction: Romney's jobs record

From Char Weise at Creative Destruction:
Here's total private sector jobs in Massachusetts and the US from 1990 to 2012, from the BLS. The shaded area is Romney's term as governor, 2003-06.

Clearly Massachusetts' economy underperformed in the Romney years: private sector employment rose by 1.5% in Massachusetts versus 5.7% in the US overall.
