Just 96,000 jobs created last month, says the jobs report. CNN adds:
The monthly report, one of the few remaining before voters head to the polls November 6, showed the unemployment rate falling to 8.1% as more workers withdrew from the labor force. The 96,000 jobs created were also not enough to keep up with the population entering the workforce.
The only thing I really have to add is that President Obama knew the jobs report numbers before he spoke last night. Do with that information what you will.
