Energized Obama touts new jobs report in Virginia, Ohio

Cleveland, Ohio (CNN) – Appearing newly energized amid the release of a better-than-expected jobs report, President Obama touched down in rain-soaked Cleveland, Ohio Monday and warned that a President Romney would bring the country’s economic recovery to a halt.

“This morning, we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since I took office,” the president told a crowd that local officials say numbered 9,000. “More Americans entered the workforce. More people are getting jobs.”

    Yeah, two states run by Republican governors that made the tough choices and are now reaping the rewards, along with Obama, who did nothing to help them.

    So how is California doing these days? How is that great Democrat state? Declared bankruptcy yet?

    country’s economic recovery
    BTW... record unemployment and 1.3% GDP growth (lower than the last two years) is a recovery???? Only in Obamaland!

    Keep up the good work, Mr. President. America, under your guidance, will rebound. If Mittens get in, middle class America can forget about it. We will still be paying the bill, carrying the rich and trying to help the poor. OBAMA 2012!!!!

    this counrty is full of morons all repos. These are good job numbers not part time jobs and there is no way to cook the books. Whats wrong with people who don't care if their candidate sends jobs and money overseas and hides tax income> They think thats ok but bad job numbers. They are the people still looking for commies under the bed. Forward.

    Half of these new jobs are part time and Obama is doing a victory lap around the country. He is not helping the middle class even if this really is what he is trying to do. The middle class needs more than he is capable of providing. Romney/ Ryan 2012.

    haters are always going to hate, That's why nothing will ever convince them. President Obama is the best thing that ever
    happened to America but haters will prefer the worst to happen to them instead.

  15. Romney Said Let Them Eat Cake

    Well it is what it is Romney idol worshippers. I am quite pleased so many people are finding jobs. For those of you unhappy that our economy is improving if you hate our country so much leave we won't miss you at all. You know Romney can't win on character or merit, he wants to win on the hardship of others. We are a great and strong country we always help each other and bounce back.

    Romney is still holding 100% of the fund raising money he received when he spoke about the 47% as his audience clapped and laughed, they filled his campaign coffers. So if now he's saying "I was wrong" why hasn't he returned that "funny" money back to the clapping and laughing group and tell them "I was wrong" for keeping it, that's how you prove you were wrong.

    This is good news for our country, regardless of the conspiracy theorists, Romney, obstructionists, etc.

    Hussein Obama is literally hindering the middle class.
    It's true. So anyone who considers themselves middle class who does not feel hindered in the last 3 1/2 years worse than you have ever been hindered at any time in your life, raise your hand. Okay, so look. There's one hand going up in Nebraska. But that's Warren Buffet's secretary and she is just being nice to Obama because he got her a front row seat for the State of The Union address...
