CNN’s Tom Foreman fact checks last night’s presidential debate

 President Obama and Mitt Romney sparred over domestic issues last night in the first of three presidential debates before Election Day just one month away. Both made striking claims, but which of those are actually true? CNN’s Tom Foreman holds both candidates accountable to their statements with a post-debate fact-check this morning on “Early Start”.

    Still scratching my head when the Pres 5 Mil jobs created the past 30 days was deemed false by Mr Foreman. The President's statement was correct,( within a few100 grand). Tom went back to the beginning of his presidency to say only 125k jobs were created.If the Pres said he created 5 mil jobs during his entire term, then it would have and should have been a pants on fire lie.
    Tom Foreman should correct his determination!!
