Pres. Obama (no font needed)
(R) Presidential Candidate
Barack Obama and Mitt Romney agree that creating jobs is critical for Americans.
But, they have very different views of how to accomplish that mission.
Job creation is taking center stage on the presidential campaign trail as the latest unemployment figures are released.
Andrew Spencer has the story.
--REPORTER PKG-AS FOLLOWS --
GETTING AMERICANS BACK TO WORK -- THAT'S THE GOAL FOR BOTH PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES. BUT BARACK OBAMA AND MITT ROMNEY HAVE DIFFERENT IDEAS ON HOW TO GET THAT DONE. WITH THE ELECTION JUST OVER A MONTH AWAY -- EACH CANDIDATE IS SAYING THEIR FORMULA IS THE ONE THAT WILL CREATE JOBS.
DURING A STOP IN MADISON, WISCONSIN, OBAMA SAID ROMNEY CAN'T PAY FOR HIS FIVE-TRILLION-DOLLAR TAX PLAN WITHOUT "STICKING IT TO THE MIDDLE CLASS."
Can't afford to double down on the same top down economic policies that got us into this mess, that is not a jobs plan, it's not a plan for our economy, it's not a plan to strengthen the middle class it is not change it is a relapse and we're not going to do it.
MITT ROMNEY TOLD SUPPORTERS IN FISHERSVILLE, VIRGINIA THAT THE PRESIDENT HASN'T LIVED UP TO THE PROMISES HE MADE WHEN HE FIRST RAN FOR OFFICE. ROMNEY SAID THE DEMOCRAT'S APPROACH WON'T CREATE MORE JOBS.
They plan on raising taxes on the American people and that will kill jobs, we will not let that happen we want to create jobs not kill jobs in this country.
WHEN ASKED WHICH CANDIDATE WOULD BEST HANDLE UNEMPLOYMENT, ROMNEY TOPPED OBAMA 51-TO-45 PERCENT IN A C-N-N/O-R-C POLL TAKEN BEFORE WEDNESDAY NIGHT'S DEBATE.
I'M ANDREW SPENCER REPORTING.
The Labor Department releases the latest unemployment numbers this morning at 8:30 Eastern. Then, there is just one more unemployment report before the November election.
