I have some advice for Mitt Romney. Just stop campaigning. Save the money. It turns out that each time Barack Obama or one of his stooges speaks, the world gets so much easier for Romney. Obama and his surrogates are helping Romney more than helping themselves. As an example, check out the ridiculous comments coming from Democrat Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
As I wrote on June 8, Barack Obama really stepped into a mess when he took to the podium and said, “The private sector is doing fine.”
Now, that same sentiment is being echoed by Obama’s prime regurgitater of talking points: Debbie Wasserman Schultz. As reported by The Blaze, Wasserman Schultz said in an interview on Fox News that she’s “pretty happy about 28 straight months of job growth in the private sector.” Is she serious? The so-called “growth” doesn’t even keep up with population demands. The Obama administration continues to lose ground when it comes to job creation.
The timing coincided with former White House spokesperson Robert Gibbs’ admission that “we’re not growing fast enough and we’re not adding enough jobs.”
Fox’s Roberts immediately pointed out that only 80,000 jobs were added last month, and 69,000 the month before that. Moreover, June’s job report marked the 32nd time that the White House urged voters to ignore employment data, and unemployment remains at 8.2%.
As pointed out in an MSNBC article which shows that Obama’s campaign rhetoric doesn’t square with economic reality, Romney’s campaign responded to the recent jobs report by saying, “It requires adding about 130-150k jobs a month to simply keep up with population growth; only 80k jobs is LOSING [sic] ground.”
In a speech last week, Obama said, “What we wanted to do was make sure that we started moving in the right direction, moving forward, not moving backwards. And we’ve been able to do that. We’ve been moving forwards. And frankly, we’ve been moving forwards without a lot of help from the other side.”
This is moving forward? Maybe we should try moving backward. I’m just saying… if Obama thinks “forward” is good and forward leads to high unemployment and anemic job creation, then maybe America needs a new direction.
In any case, as long as Obama, Wasserman Schultz, and others keep talking, then all we have to do is point out what they say. They are making the case for change all by themselves.
