I think that, before you start placing blame on the Democrats, you should first figure out why the GOP can't get its own people to back Romney.

Um, I get back to Romney's much-chided, but true remark that there are 47% of Americans not paying taxes, and he can't rely on their votes under any circumstances. How is it that you infer that conservatives aren't backing Romney? He starts with 47% of all voters in the pocket for Obama, and then has to battle for 4% of undecided voters. Make no mistake: conservatives, like me and those on, are fully behind Mitt Romney - if not because of his policies, then because we share the common goal of defeating Obama.

I know logic is hard, but do try to keep up.

Huh?? What does this have to do with what I posted, Lucky? Or perhaps you're validating my assertion that libs can't interpret graphs, politics or even the English language.

In the final jobs report prior to the election, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has announced that unemployment crept up in October to 7.9 percent, as 170,000 nonfarm payroll jobs were added.   The broader "U-6" unemployment statistic is 14.6 percent (up a hair from 14.5 six months ago). August and September's numbers were both revised upward, which is a positive sign.  As Jim Pethokoukis notes, average monthly job growth in 2012 has been nearly identical to the sub-par numbers of 2011, and hourly wages remain stagnant at best.  The "worst recovery since the Great Depression" continues....
