JUST WHEN Mitt Romney makes a break for himself out of the weekly contagion of rolling calamity, as it’s been called, the unemployment number lands.
The U.S. unemployment rate fell to its lowest level in more than 3½ years in September as the economy continued to add jobs, a potential boost for President Barack Obama’s campaign to win a second term. The politically important unemployment rate fell to 7.8% last month from 8.1% in August. That was the lowest level since January 2009. [Wall Street Journal]
