    Friday's strong jobs report was a punch in the gut to the already reeling Romney campaign. With his disaster relief stunt exposed and media becoming less tolerant of his lying, Mitt Romney had to face the unavoidable conclusion the numbers presented, the economy is recovering without the help of his "business experience." For a guy with nothing else to sell, that pretty much destroyed his prospects for political success.

    Although not enough to sway the dimmest of Romney supporters, the more intellectually able will see the surging employment of the current report and the upward revisions of prior reports for what they reveal of the President's leadership -- a sound policy and a steady hand. The Romney campaign can't tolerate that. It tells the voters they have no reason to vote for Romney.

    Mitt Romney is out of his league. He's trying to compete in a contest where he's clearly outclassed by the competition. He doesn't have the moves or the experience to deal with it. Sure, he can bob and weave, duck and dive, but that's not enough when the other guy knows winning the match takes more than trash talk.

    The UE rate went up from last months lie. There's not much to stagger Romney with that.

    Don't worry, you will always have Propaganda and the compliance of the Press to prop you up, Winston Smith. ;)

    Actually:

    The final monthly jobs report before Election Day offered a mixed bag of economic evidence that would surely become political putty for the presidential candidates, with the unemployment rate ticking up to 7.9 percent but the economy adding a better-than-expected 171,000 jobs. [up from last month when it was 7.8%]

    "Today's increase in the unemployment rate is a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual standstill," Romney said in a statement. "The jobless rate is higher than it was when President Obama took office, and there are still 23 million Americans struggling for work.


    At the same time, the number of unemployed grew by 170,000, roughly the same amount...
