Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
how many ways to tweak statistics did you count in the parts of the article I quoted?

I didn't count them, but the first one was the most glaring:

Over the past decade, European employment has grown by less than 10 per cent, while US employment has grown by 17 per cent

Oh, what were the respective population growths again?... The EU-15's was a bit above 3%, the US just below 13%,   so relative job creation was just: the EU's 6,5% vs. the US 3,7% (!), and I didn't took different job statistics into account!!!

To emphasize, Europe had more job creation than the USA over the last decade in relative terms.
