The economy's recovering, and we live in a great place to find work.
The president said last night that after the worst recession most of us have ever known, the economy is growing again. And Michele Bachmann helpfully showed us that unemployment is dropping.

Maybe that has something to do with why Minneapolis is now ranked by Monster as having the 6th hottest job market in the country.

Monster said it based the rankings on the relative abundance of job openings in each city for local residents seeking work. Senior vice president Jesse Harriott said the recovery has especially helped free up money for investment in IT. He also expects continued growth in the health care sector as long-in-the-tooth boomers require more and more services.

Here are the Top 10 Hottest Job Markets

1. Washington
2. San Francisco
3. Boston
4. Baltimore
5. Seattle
6. Minneapolis
7. Cleveland
8. Tampa
9. Dallas
10. Kansas City

No, we can't lead every national list. So it is nice to know that we're the cleanest, most most relaxed metro in the country, where the business environment is pretty good, and you can find a relatively cheap place to live. And -- we can never say it enough -- we're the most bike-friendly city in the country.

Minneapolis' Job Market is worse than St. Pauls' job market. Saint Paul has a much better job market than Minneapolis. Minneapolis' job market is attrociously bad and the Obama administration has done a worse job than the Bush administration at job creation, while the Obama administration has attempted to continue delivering intrusive speeches where Obama apparently does in a less obvious way use "race cards" which is comparable with Bush's use of fictional terms for wars in Iraq, and Afghanistan, and Obama's speeches may contain passages from "best seller" novels, and other issues such as those. The lack of job creation during the Obama administration in terms of actual journalism is possibly among the larger disasters in presidential history, although it may be less large than the stock market crash in the 1930's, or the Vietnam war.
