Last jobs report before election crucial in close race

(CNN) - The monthly jobs report - the last before the nail-biting election next week - may be the single most motivating event to take place at this point in the campaign.

On its own, it wouldn't be. But with a race so tight in so many swing states, swayable, uncommitted, undecided and even decided voters could be persuaded to cast a ballot for the presidential candidate they think can best propel the country forward.

    The numbers have obviously been manipulated.

    obama finally told the world he could not create jobs-having only gotten his paycheck from Acorn and the government we it is obvious why--he has to create a whole new cabinet to create jobs. This is why Romney has to get in-he will create the jobs. Tell the EPA to get lost so we can use all our sources of energy in this country so we do not import one barrel of oil from the muslim brotherhood.

    signed: vets for Romney

    Yes we are moving forward beyond the Bush/Romney/Ryan type of policies that almost destroyed our great nation. Thank you President Obama, you've earned my vote.

  6. Enough of Romney

    The numbers a good. These bloggers for Romney seem to actually hate America's success, because they can't use it to bolster Romney's claims. I mean, do you guys really hate America so much that you want US to fail?
