Mitt Romney used the April jobs report to rip President Obama on Friday for his handling of the economy.
In an op-ed to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Romney said Obama, who will officially launch his reelection campaign on Saturday with rallies in Ohio and Virginia, had offered only hollow promises on the economy.
And in an interview on Fox News, Romney said April’s jobs report, which showed the economy gaining 115,000 jobs, was too weak.
“We should be seeing numbers in the [range of] 500,000 jobs created per month,” Romney told Fox News. “This is way, way, way off from what should happen in a normal recovery.”
