Romney defends Obama's jobs progress

"I came in and the jobs had been just falling off a cliff. And I came in and they kept falling for 11 months. And then we turned around and we're coming back. And that's progress.

"And if you're going to suggest to me that somehow the day I got elected, somehow jobs should immediately turn around, well that would be silly. It takes a while to get things turned around. We were in a recession; we were losing jobs every month, we've turned around, and since the turn around we've added 50,000 jobs. That's progress.

It's just remarkable how much this reads like a defense of Obama. The president came in, jobs were falling off a cliff, and now the economy is coming back. The new version of Romney thinks the job market should have turned around "immediately," but the previous version of Romney thought this was "silly," because it "takes a while to get things turned around."
