10:20 ET: President Obama delivers remarks at Franklin County Fairgrounds in Hilliard, Ohio
Steve Benen: …. the figures offer good economic news for the American people, and good political news for President Obama. The U.S. economy created 171,000 jobs in October, far more than expected, while American businesses created 184,000 jobs – the best month for the private sector since February.
The overall unemployment rate ticked slightly higher, to 7.9%, but that’s the result of a positive trend – more Americans entered the workforce, which is exactly what we’d hope to see in an improving economy.
Even more encouraging, the new report revised job totals from August and September, and both were updated in a good direction, adding a combined 84,000 ….. so far in 2012 (which still has two months to go), the economy has created over 1.56 million jobs, which is already better than five of the eight years of the Bush/Cheney era.
