Despite lackluster jobs report--4.4 million jobs created under Obama in last 28 months

President Barack Obama downplayed a weak jobs report Friday as he wrapped up a two-day bus tour to critical states in the November election, while Republicans pounced on the news to declare the president's policies have failed.

Stock prices plunged on the report that the economy created 80,000 jobs in June, well below the number needed to bring down the 8.2% unemployment rate.

At a campaign event in Poland, Ohio, Obama said the job growth -- while smaller than needed -- continued a trend that has added 4.4 million jobs in the past 28 months following what he called "the worst economic crisis of our lifetime."

"That's a step in the right direction," Obama contended.

This despite consistent GOP sabotage. In 2008 alone, the economy LOST 2.6 million jobs.

1. He needs to drive this home again and again

as I notice he did today. He needs to list his achievements, which are many.
If he can hang in there, so can we.

2. Democrats need to unite around this message cause it is important!! It wasn't the best jobs report..

 

but the truth remains that Obama has created more private sector jobs than Bush did in 8 years!!!

Democrats must not run from this message!

Kicked and Bookmarked!!!
