Mitt Romney today released the following statement on the June unemployment numbers:
"Today's abysmal jobs report confirms what we all know -- that President Obama has failed to get this economy moving again. Just this week, President Obama's closest White House adviser said that "unemployment rates or even monthly jobs numbers' do not matter to the average American.
"If David Plouffe were working for me, I would fire him and then he could experience firsthand the pain of unemployment. His comments are an insult to the more than 20 million people who are out of work, underemployed or who have simply stopped looking for jobs. With their cavalier attitude about the economy, the White House has turned the audacity of hope into the audacity of indifference."
