Post factchecker: Yeah, Romney plan can probably create 12M jobs

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan said in both of their speeches at the Republican convention this week that they have a plan to create 12 million jobs over four years.

A Washington Post fact check says that's doable:

[T]he number is less impressive than it sounds. This pledge amounts to an average of 250,000 jobs a month, a far cry from the 500,000 jobs a month that Romney claimed would be created in a “normal recovery.” In recent months, the economy has averaged about 150,000 jobs a month. ...

[T]his is a fairly safe bet by Romney, even if he has a somewhat fuzzy plan for action.
