SHARE Mitt starting week jabbing Obama on “doing fine” gaffe and jobs

WASHINGTON–The Romney campaign is starting the week jabbing President Barack Obama in a new video on slow job creation and his Friday gaffe about the private sector “doing fine.” The Obama team on Monday released a video hitting Romney for his Friday stumble about hiring police, firefighters and teachers. My column on that is HERE.

Boston, MA – Today, Romney for President released a new web video, “Jolt.” Last Friday, the unemployment rate rose to 8.2 percent and 300,000 more people joined the long-term unemployed. One week later, President Obama said the private sector is doing fine. Only a president that presides over forty months of unemployment over 8 percent would think that the last jobs report is “doing fine.” These comments show that President Obama is completely out of touch with the middle class.
