Obama argues that he inherited a bad economy thanks to the situation left to him by President Bush and he needs another four years to fix it.
Bluffton University Associate Economics Professor Jonathan Andreas says Obama may have a point.
While Obama believes Bush can be blamed for some of the economic problems, professor Andreas says he can't be blamed for everything.
The man who hopes to replace Obama says today's employment report shows that it's time for a new president.
Mitt Romney says Obama has done almost nothing to give the American people confidence that he knows what he's doing when it comes to jobs and the economy.
