The Obama campaign brags about solid job growth, creating record numbers jobs.
I guess those jobs only last about a day because unemployment has been incredibly high during all this so called "job creation" LOL

After a brief dip, Obama is back up slightly in the polls 50-46%. Gasoline is down here in Okie to 3.25 and is expected to drop to 2.80. It will be close but romney and Co. will have to try again in 2016.

I see Romney/Ryan signs in yards everywhere I go in Georgia & Alabama. I have seen one Obama sign.

I guess you could call me the classic independent, I don't consider myself a democrat or republican.

I heard that one large US State (unnamed) conveniently failed to report any unemployment figures. I mean WTF Obama! All this deception, a far cry from his promised "Most Transparent Administration" ever.
Manipulating the numbers like this causes everyone not to believe them even when they are valid.

Unemployment but everyone mowing lawns and roofing houses are illegals driving new pick-up trucks. Whatever happened to young men willing to do the same? Too many Mommys boys afraid to get their soft hands dirty. Hell this country is going downhill fast with so many" Girly Men".

It isn't fair to expect an unparented, uncouth man like Obama to behave like preveious American Presidents.
Fed Affirmative Action laws force us to settle for much less with obama. He doesn't have to measure up.

I have seen a few signs for both. I have a Romney sign in our front yard.
I think many know who they are voting for but don't want to advertise it to avoid confrontation. I can remember another election where the different sides have been so far apart.
I guess with unemployment and the economy the way it is, people are very strong in what they believe. I know I am.

I guess anything under 8% unemployment is not considered high according to this article.
Unemployment dropped and job creation rose in September but just a week or so ago I saw where the numbers were revised to the bad.
The way it is with all the polls and economic numbers you really don't know which, if any, are accurate.
