Romney, GOP downplay positive jobs report

Oct 5, 2012 Full story: www.cbsnews.com 135

For most of his presidency, the unemployment rate hung like a millstone around President Obama's neck.

But today's jobs figures, showing that unemployment last month fell below 8 percent for the first time in 43 months, marked a symbolic breakthrough. Nevertheless, the Republican Party today stressed that a 7.8 percent unemployment rate is hardly something to brag about.

I LAUGH at the loons who think because fewer jobs were created this month, that's a decline.

Job creation means MORE JOBS WERE CREATED, PERIOD.

No, job creation means jobs were created. Nothing more, nothing less.

Were any jobs created last month? Yes.

Did we lose some jobs as well? Of course. But that doesn't change the simple fact that jobs WERE created.

Romney and the Republicans can not stand any thing good happening for the country. Republicans number one Priority is to make Obama a one term President. Republicans politics over country. Vote out Republicans. Republicans are anti-American.

If you follow the history of Paul Ryan and the House republicans, you find they preferred party over helping with the economic recovery of the United States....How can anyone remain a republican supporter, after learning of this....?

Yes with the Republican Senator Mitch McConnell admitting their number one Priority was to make Obama a one term President it clearly shows they prefer politics over country.

Doesn't change the fact that three red states overwhemlingly lead in private sector job creation and the federal administration has little to do with it.

Book cookin' and spinning. That's about it from the whitehouse.

Here's another sucker with SOUR GRAPES.
You should spit too. Get that taste out of your mouth.
And try hard to come up with an excuse for next month's numbers,(Just before the election.)
WARNING: You won't like the taste.
(NOTE: Mitt is not chaanging the numbers, his SOUR GRAPES response is even WEAKER than yours, if you can believe it:
SOUR MITT's GRAPES:
"...This is not what a real recovery looks like..."

Repulican led states LEAD in job creation. Republicans top priotiry is bringing America back to economic success.

Big rich democrat politicians want to keep everyone on the dole with empty promises and failed programs, make Americans dependent like much of Europe.

Out in 2010, more out in 2012.

Then you top it off with the republicans hatred of senior citizens and the poor and believe that 47% are moochers and dependent on government. Republican members of Congress are moochers and dependent on government. Republican should practice what they preach.

Romney says that 47% are dependent on government and are moochers. That would include his running mate Paul Ryan.
