The Republican party has a nightmare– unemployment rates have continued to fall under the presidency of Barack Obama. Latest figures indicate it dropped from 8.5% to 8.2%. Naturally, Republicans who have been denouncing economic policies of the president attributed the lower rate as due to what Congressman Eric Cantor described as “finally” having Democrats follow Republican policies.
Congressman John Boehner made clear “we must do better,” and Mitt Romney emphasized the “president’s policies have prevented a full recovery. I am certain if the rate drops to five percent, Mitt and Newt and John and Eric will argue that credit belongs to Republicans who claim anything and everything Barack does is wrong.
