I'll take jobs over debates:

http://economywatch.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/10/05/14240541-un...

The Labor Department reported Friday that the unemployment rate fell to 7.8 percent in September, a decline of 0.3 percentage point and the lowest since January 2009. The government said the economy created 114,000 jobs, about as expected, and generated 86,000 more jobs in July and August than first estimated.

The US was hemorrhaging over half a million jobs per month when Obama took office. Though the stimulus would have worked faster if the Repuglicans hadn't sabotaged it, things are slowly shaping up. Now all we need is to let the Bush tax cuts expire and we're good to go.*

Screw the debates, I prefer Obama's known path to Romney's indecipherable and mercurial one. Besides, if we wanted debates to be meaningful, we'd make them audio only, not the ridiculous politi-tainment they've become.

* cue some idiot telling us raising taxes will crush job creation...even though if that were true we'd already be awash in jobs
