It is a number of people who have jobs who nonetheless are very concerned about the future of their job. A lot of parents wonder whether the past has been brighter than the future that they anticipate for their families. We have about half of college graduates this year coming out of school without a job or without a job that’s consistent with their skills.
The President’s team indicated that if we passed their stimulus of 787 billion dollars, borrowed, that they’d hold unemployment below 8%. We’ve gone forty straight months with unemployment above 8%. And of course home values have declined and continue to bump along the bottom. So, we’ll hear what he has to say tomorrow as he describes the reason for four more years, but I happen to believe that if you look at his record over the last three and a half years, you will conclude, as I have, that it is the most anti-investment, anti-business, anti-jobs series of polices in modern American history.
The reason it has taken so long for this recovery to gain traction and to put people back to work is in large measure because of the policy choices the President made. He is not responsible for whatever improvement we might be seeing, instead he is responsible for the fact that it’s taken so long to see this recovery and the recovery is so tepid.”
