Where Are the Jobs, Mr. President?

With the disappointing jobs report for the month of June reported Friday morning, along came the 41st repeat of the standard response coming out of the White House, including from President Obama himself: we can't pay much attention to one report's statistics. Except he said it for the 41st time. While the president is unable to admit a pattern of continuing failure, the American voter is painfully aware of the despair and frustration in the atmosphere.

Here is the response from RNC Chairman Reince Priebus: This president never really left the campaign trail that led to his current position. He outsourced the economy recovery to his Democratically controlled Congress in 2009 and 2010. Instead of focusing on economic recovery, he and his Democratic majority rammed through a new entitlement - Obamacare - on a completely one-sided partisan vote. Never before has a new entitlement been voted into place with the votes of only one party. This legislation remains vastly unpopular with the majority of Americans yet we are told to move on.

As he continues on with his record breaking amount of campaign fundraisers and his non-stop traveling across the swing states at taxpayer expense, the country languishes in a malaise not seen since the Carter administration. It is the price we pay for the election of a man not up to the job. It is the price we pay for a man more concerned with his own ego and legacy than with the people for whom he serves.
