McDonnell trumpets gain of 65 jobs on day when 631 jobs lost

You can't make this stuff up. Today Virginia's "Jobs Governor" Bob McDonnell made a huge deal out of a company's decision to add 65 jobs over the course of three years on a day when another company announced that it would be laying off 631 employees by July 22, 2011. Even if you give Bob McDonnell credit for the jobs that Virginia won't see for another two years, that still leaves today's totals at a net loss of more than 550 jobs.

That's hardly a record to brag about, Governor McDonnell.
