Looking at the numbers there are things in it for both sides. Romney will obviously hit him on the % like he has been and Obama will counter with better than expected jobs.
This is going to have little to no impact on the race.

Regardless of political talking points, yes it's good we're adding jobs but....the jobs being added are doing squat for a real recovery. Hence, incomes continue to fall
Long-Term unemployment also rose in Oct. to 40.6%
Perhaps consumer confidence is up because we've lowered our expectations

"Weak right 40 gut. Yum! Yum! How bout that one baby!"
Gotta love Obama apologists - their motto should be: Next to Nothing is Still Something!
or We Would be Happy with Less than nothing! Just keep smiling Barack!
If you are content with the slow to no progress, great, be happy with a few more years with the do-nothing in office.
I am in sales and this "leader" we have has created no economic conditions where my customers are comfortable with spending much at all. It's killing my livelihood and I will be lucky to last another six months to a year.
I dont love Romney but he has GOT to be better than the current incompetent.
coolest room ever
Just how many people is Romney going to hire as POTUS? Oh, he'll give tax breaks to encourage hiring....tell me....how has hat worked? After four years this whole thing has become mind numbingly predictable.

Good news for the economy just absolutely HAS to be countered by insulting things that nobody has said.
- Bureau of Labor Statistics - Employment data
- Seasonally adjusted.
- Total Nonfarm.
- All Employees - Thousands
- Total Nonfarm
- Retrieve Data
- Change start sate to 1999, click "Go."
Total Jobs when W took office (Feb, 2001): 132,529,000
When he left office (Jan, 2009): 133,561,000
Net change: 1,032,000
That's 95 months = 10,863 jobs/month
Total Jobs when Obama took office (Feb, 2009): 132,837,000
Most recent numbers (Oct 2012): 133,755,000
Net change: 918,000
That's 45 months = 20,400 jobs/month
Employment has gone up twice as fast, under Obama, as it did under W.
But Obama's economy is "Less than nothing". "Slow to no progress".
