Concord, NH- New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Wayne MacDonald released the following statement after today's August jobs report showed the national unemployment numbers remaining above 8 percent, where it has remained for the last 43 months.
"On the heels of Obama asking America for a second term and just hours before he appears in New Hampshire to do the same, we are given a clear reason to fire him. Are Americans, and Granite Staters, better off than they were four years ago? The answer is a resounding no. Today's dismal jobs report proves that. This President promised to turn this economy around and his massive stimulus bill was supposed to jump start job creation, but it all failed, and we are instead left with massive debt and millions of people still unemployed.
"Over 23 million Americans out of work is not an improvement, and it is not what Obama promised the people of America. This country deserves a leader who will put people back to work and who has a proven record of creating jobs. It is clear to the citizens of America and New Hampshire that it is time to elect Mitt Romney."
