Well we saw another bad jobs report this month. Third in a row. So what is the guy in charge going to say about it?
“You guys are bright enough to look at the numbers. I came in and the jobs had been just falling right off a cliff, I came in and they kept falling for 11 months,” he explains.
“And if you are going to suggest to me that somehow the day I got elected, somehow jobs should have immediately turned around, well that would be silly. It takes awhile to get things turned around. We were in a recession, we were losing jobs every month,” he added.
Oh wait. You thought that was quoting President Obama? Wrong. In fact, Mitt Romney said that about his really dismal job creation record when he was governor of Massachusetts. Watch Romney saying this on video at a 2006 press conference for yourself. Now Mr. Romney is holding President Obama to the exact opposite standard that he held for himself.
Good old Mitt Romney. Never found a position he couldn’t reverse himself on if it suits his political ambitions.
