Make Jobs, Not Excuses

Mr. President, by your own measure, you've failed to deliver the jobs Americans need.

In fact, no president in modern history has ever asked to be re-elected with this many Americans out of work. Twenty-three million Americans are struggling for work, and more families wake up in poverty than ever before.

It's unacceptable. And now, America needs jobs -- not a litany of President Obama's excuses, scapegoats, and alibis.

To change direction, we need a president who will own up to the simple truth: Americans are not better off than they were four years ago.

I am running for president to help create a better future for America. A future where everyone who wants a job can find one. Where no senior fears for the security of their retirement. Where every parent knows that their child will get an education that leads to a good job and a bright horizon.

With your help, the Republican team, Paul Ryan, and I will deliver that brighter future. Our Plan for a Stronger Middle Class will create 12 million jobs, and ensure more take-home pay and better opportunities for all Americans.

Let's put America back to work by putting Barack Obama and his liberal allies out of work -- donate $25 today.

Mitt Romney
