NYT Editorial: …. The truth is that Mr. Obama was right when he talked about “real progress” in the economy during a campaign swing in Ohio, where the state unemployment rate has declined from 8.6 percent a year ago to 7 percent recently. Republican obstructionism has made it much harder to achieve the improvement we have seen, but it has failed in its seeming intent to ensure stagnation.

That left Mr. Romney flailing around for a response. His proclamation that the economy was at a “virtual standstill” is believable only if you adopt Mr. Romney’s denial of stark reality. A candidate who could ignore Chrysler’s announcement of 1,100 new jobs in Toledo and claim that Chrysler was moving jobs to China can just as easily see a flat line in an upward trend.

…. Republicans have been determined to keep the economy as weak as possible to hurt Mr. Obama’s campaign. The Republicans’ last-minute tactic has been a cynical one — to make it clear that they will continue obstructing Mr. Obama if he wins. That is a hollow argument for Mr. Romney. And it does not change the fact that Mr. Romney has no good ideas and Mr. Obama has plenty.

Rise and Shine – and Heads Up: President Obama in Ohio

10:20 ET: President Obama delivers remarks at Franklin County Fairgrounds in Hilliard, Ohio

C-Span * CBS * CNN


Steve Benen: …. the figures offer good economic news for the American people, and good political news for President Obama. The U.S. economy created 171,000 jobs in October, far more than expected, while American businesses created 184,000 jobs – the best month for the private sector since February.

The overall unemployment rate ticked slightly higher, to 7.9%, but that’s the result of a positive trend – more Americans entered the workforce, which is exactly what we’d hope to see in an improving economy.

Even more encouraging, the new report revised job totals from August and September, and both were updated in a good direction, adding a combined 84,000 ….. so far in 2012 (which still has two months to go), the economy has created over 1.56 million jobs, which is already better than five of the eight years of the Bush/Cheney era.
