How do European economists dare to state that 115.000 jobs added in the USA is ‘disappointing’

I’m a somewhat hot tempered guy. At my age one knows that this is often a bad thing. But not today.  How does even one European economist dare to twitter (which quite a lot did)  that an increase of 115.000 jobs in the USA is ‘disappointing’ when unemployment in Europe rises with more than 200.000 people a month. Notice that almost all of the recent increases are concentrated in the Eurozone. Source: an official Eurostat graph. These economists do not just not know how to read graphs. They don’t even know the graphs. Fire them.

    Aw, come on! Both the US and Europe are in the hole.
    What’s the point in arguing about who’s sitting on top of who at the bottom?
    And what kind of “jobs’ are we talking about anyway?
    Some elucidation may be in order.

    how about proof reading your text before posting ?
    the text following “How does even one European economist dare to twitter…” is , charitably, garbled.
    Kind silly to criticize people when you are incohernet [sic] in print
