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.”

    Not to belittle the efforts of the Republican crowd here on CNN, but you guys really sound silly with your anti-Obama sandbox name calling. If you are all so sure Romney will become the next president, why on earth do you need to act like pre-schoolers needing their blinkies? My guess is the numbers are good and once the debate wears off, old Mitt will continue to be seen for what he really is ... a nobody going nowhere. I'm astounded that three quarters of you are willing to take your chances on a man who is clearly delusional and about as unAmerican as all of you can only wish Obama were. Mitt Romney has no real ties to America ... financially or otherwise. When are you folks going to get that through your feeble minds?

    Just a few more weeks and Truth Hurts will not be with us as IT will not be able to handle the news when the president wins reelection. I am counting DOWN the days until IT completely goes off the deep end. It is already happening as we speak and please don't worry about California as we will CONTINUE to STAND WITH THE CURRENT PRESIDENT.

    Boy, you guys sound really mad! LOL. It's only FOUR MORE YEARS. Then, I'm sure willard will be there AGAIN, lurking in the shadows of the GOP. When are you guys going to see that it is REPUBLICANS who have started hiring again just to shut willard down?? You don't really believe folks like Christie, Jeb Bush, and Jon Huntsman want willard to win this thing do you? If he did, there would be no room for them to run in 2016. Think bigger boys and girls. Vote OBAMA/BIDEN 2012

    These numbers, just like all the others will be revised. But following the recent trend to help Obama's relection bid, the unemployment percentage for October, released just before the election will read 0%.
