Weekly Wrap-Up

“The effort by Team Obama... to turn the page from Wednesday's disaster reached comedy status this morning with the dancing break-out over the unemployment rate of 7.8%,” Hugh Hewitt notes in response to today’s new jobs numbers.

Or, as the Weekly Standard gently puts it, “This morning's jobs report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics is being met withskepticism.”

According to The Heritage Foundation, “Economists arealready looking into the drop, saying it seems to be a statistical fluke, because it doesn’t match up with the sluggish job creation and recent downward revision of GDP growth.”

What’s your take? Are these new unemployment numbers for real, or for show? Vote today in our new Weekly Poll.

Wednesday’s debate didn’t decide the election – there are still miles to go – but it was such a strong performance by Romney, I can’t help but savor all the post-game analysis.

John Podhoretz gives his take on “Why Romney Romped,” while his colleagues on the Post Editorial Board demolish Team Obama’s post-debatestrategy of calling Romney a liar...

Charles Krauthammer declares the winner: “Romney by two touchdowns,” while George Will explores Romney’s debate trifecta...

“For the first time, the carefully crafted campaign illusions that the President has constructed were exposed,” the Wall Street Journal says of the debate – and Peggy Noonan predicts, “This whole race is on the move again, it's in play again, and it's going to get fun.”

In the Weekly Standard, Fred Barnes defends the performance of the left’s new villain, moderator Jim Lehrer.

So how will Obama and Co. try to bounce back from the debate debacle?

The Heritage Foundation asks an alarming and not at all unreasonable question: “Will the Obama Administration Attack Libya Before theForeign Policy Debate?

We’ll see what happens... and in the meantime, have a great weekend!
