  • News to know
    A jobs report released Friday shows that the unemployment rate fell below 8 percent, to 7.8 percent, and that 114,000 jobs were added last month. President Barack Obama, fresh off his debate loss, said Friday, "Today I believe that as a nation, we are moving forward again. We're moving forward." Mitt Romney said, “The reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work."
    Quote of note
    "Clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you're gonna say something that doesn't come out right. In this case I said something that's just completely wrong." – Mitt Romney, talking on Fox News about his much-maligned quote about the “47 percent.”
