Chairman Priebus: “On Jobs, Obama is Running from Reality”

- June 1, 2012

Excerpts from Red State

By: Chairman Reince Priebus

June 1, 2012

"Today's extremely troubling jobs report is yet another sad reminder that President Obama's policies simply are not working-and that we need a president who understands the economy.

"Last night on CNN former President Bill Clinton praised Mitt Romney's 'sterling' career in the private sector. This morning Steny Hoyer echoed that sentiment, underscoring the importance of the private sector in growing our economy. While Mitt Romney's sterling record demonstrates that he knows what it takes to fix our economy, today's jobs report shows that President Obama's record is irreparably tarnished...

"President Obama has failed to live up to the promise of his candidacy. In 2009, he and his team promised an unemployment rate below 6 percent by 2012. We're far from it...

"For the weak economy, we can thank Obama's weak leadership. Instead of pursuing policies that would help job creators put Americans back to work, he's burdened them with ObamaCare, regulations, and continued threats of higher taxes...

"Not only has President Obama presided over a devastating economy, but he also refuses to hold himself accountable for it. In 2009, however, he was singing a different tune. If he didn't have the economy fixed 'in three years,' he promised, his presidency would be a 'one-term proposition'...

"The promises for his first term ignored, he's thinking exclusively about a second term.

"But unemployed Americans are still worried about the present. As today's jobs report makes clear, far too many Americans are out of work, without enough work, or giving up on looking for work altogether.

"President Obama is working hard to keep his job. It's just a shame he's not working as hard to ensure unemployed Americans can find jobs for themselves."
