Romney says he can save America by taking it out of the job crisis as soon as he becomes the President of Unites States. The GOP challenger continues to stress on his economic argument despite the unemployment rate hitting an all time low since Obama took office.

While addressing a crowd of supporters in Florida Friday night, Presidential hopeful, Mitt Romney overlooked the positive job numbers his opponent Barack Obama’s administration has managed to bring about, saying that he disagrees with the President’s claim that the unemployment statistics going down from 8.1% to 7.8% in September is an indication of a strengthening economy.

"By any rational measure, its crystal clear we're in the middle of a jobs crisis," Romney said in a fundraising message to supporters. "My priority is jobs. And from Day One of my presidency, I will lead us out of this crisis."

Obama had been arguing that it took him four years to help America get back on the road to recovery, but letting the Republicans take over the White House would mean going back to the policies that caused the crisis in the first place.

With Obama celebrating his 20th wedding anniversary that he had postponed because it was on the day of the first debate, and Joe Biden and Paul Ryan preparing for their own vice presidential debates, Romney had the state of Florida all to himself on Friday. Saturday, however, will be spent solely by the presidential hopeful to gear up for the second face to face debate with Obama.

The former Governor of Massachusetts spent most of time during the fundraising speech, discussing people he has met over the years and who have touched his life deeply. "I've seen America," Romney said. "I've seen the greatness of the human spirit in my fellow Americans. It's what gives me confidence in our future, knowing we can rise to the occasion time and again. I've seen it throughout my life."

While Romney addressed the job crisis, his campaign released an ad featuring a woman who said she backed Obama in 2008 but now thinks Mitt Romney is a much better candidate when it comes to job creation. “Being a woman, you think about your children and you think about their future. And what I want to think about is a future that has jobs. That our economy's growing again. That's important to women and it's important to me," the woman said when asked why Mitt Romney this time?
