Mitt Romney is awake! He released the following statement after the Bureau of Labor and Statistics released its report showing the unemployment rate fell to 8.1% from 8.3% but only 96,000 jobs were added, well short of expectations. I doubt this will change the election results.
“If last night was the party, this morning is the hangover,” Romney said. “For every net new job created, nearly four Americans gave up looking for work entirely. This is more of the same for middle class families who are suffering through the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression.
“After 43 straight months of unemployment above 8%, it is clear that President Obama just hasn’t lived up to his promises and his policies haven’t worked,” Romney continued. “We aren’t better off than they were four years ago. My plan for a stronger middle class will create 12 million new jobs by the end of my first term. America deserves new leadership that will get our economy moving again.” Source
Here’s my question, how does he plan to create 12 million jobs? Outsourcing to China? Mitt Romney dropped this same line during his acceptance speech and didn’t bother explaining how he would pull this off. More empty promises from “Multiple Choice” Romney.
