Romney Blames Jobs Numbers For Failing To Reveal Obama's Shortcomings
"Unfortunately, these numbers cannot hide the fact that President Obama's policies have prevented a true economic recovery."
Mitt Romney's statement on today's blow-out jobs report says good news does not hide President Barack Obama's failings.
Read it below:
“We welcome the fact that jobs were created and unemployment declined. Unfortunately, these numbers cannot hide the fact that President Obama's policies have prevented a true economic recovery. We can do better. Last week, we learned that the economy grew only 1.7% in 2011, the slowest growth in a non recession year since the end of World War II. As a result, the percentage of Americans in the job market continues to decline and is now at a level not seen since the early 1980s. Nearly 24 million Americans remain unemployed, underemployed, or have just stopped looking for work. Long-term unemployment remains at record levels. I am running for president because I have the vision and experience to help rebuild the economy and put us on a path toward greater prosperity for all Americans.”
