Mitt Romney is still trying to score political points off President Obama’s remark last Friday that the private sector is “doing fine.”
The Republican presidential nominee’s campaign has released a new minute-long video featuring news coverage of the May jobs report, which showed weaker than expected job creation and a slight uptick in the nation’s unemployment numbers.
The Romney video, titled “Jolt,” then shifts to footage of Obama’s White House news conference Friday, in which the president declared: “private sector is doing fine.” Obama later clarified his remarks, telling reporters later Friday afternoon, “The economy is not doing fine.”
But that clarification goes unmentioned in the Romney ad, which asks, as an ominous soundtrack swells, “Has there ever been a president so out of touch with the middle-class?”
Hey Holly, Obama still sucks!
