A good development. Romney begins to cite that unemployment would be 11% if numerous Americans hadn’t dropped out of the labor force.

I missed this.  Earlier I had cited that, according to Democrats, how The Obama Part-Time Economy has seen more people leave the work force than jobs have been created in the “recovery”  that has taken place since 2010.

“This is not what a real recovery looks like. We created fewer jobs in September than in August, and fewer jobs in August than in July, and we’ve lost over 600,000 manufacturing jobs since President Obama took office. If not for all the people who have simply dropped out of the labor force, the real unemployment rate would be closer to 11%. The results of President Obama’s failed policies are staggering – 23 million Americans struggling for work, nearly one in six living in poverty and 47 million people dependent on food stamps to feed themselves and their families.”

More of this please.  Lots and lots of this in ads and speeches.  This information is factual, not conspiratorial.  If Obama brings up the questionable unemployment rate of 7.8% that was released today in the jobs report from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics in the next debates, this is exactly how Romney should respond.  Lots of conservatives and even Pat Caddell have called for Romney to start citing this.  It’s good to see the Romney campaign rolling with this.
