Kelly Doran shows his ignorance

Kelly Doran seems to think that Minnesota's low job growth rate is bad. Before speaking out on this, he should have found out the reason for Minnesota's lower than average job growth rate.

The reason Minnesota has a job growth rate is that Minnesota's unemployment numbers are much lower than the national average. The most recent numbers I've seen (from a story linked on the Doran website last week) are a 4.9% unemployed nationally while unemployment in Minnesota is a 4.1%, almost a 1 point difference.

So one question remains, is why is Kelly Doran attacking Minnesota's rich history of low unemployment?

This guy just doesn't get it.
