Obama's New Attack on Romney: Romney's Policies Were An Economic Failure Because Massachusetts' Unemployment Rate Was 4.7%

4.7%.

Romney's policies did not produce enough jobs.

Merely full employment (5% is usually considered full employment).

Don't vote for the guy whose unemployment rate, while Governor, was 4.7%.

Vote for the guy who's had a 8+% unemployment record for three and a half years. The guy with the worst 30 months of employment in 25 years.

See, that's the guy you should trust on job creation.

The 8+% guy.

And, by the way, the unemployment rate is not 8%. It's really 11%.

So vote for 11% unemployment guy. This 4.7% unemployment guy is obviously some kind of incompetent parvenu.

More: I was going to say, "Is there any doubt that if Obama's record was close to 4.7%, he'd have it in every single ad?"

Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul said the same thing, in response to a query (I guess) from NR:

“This is another desperate attack from President Obama because he has no positive record to run on. Mitt Romney created more jobs in the state of Massachusetts than President Obama has for the entire nation. President Obama has failed to meet his own goal of 6 percent unemployment and has a net negative record on job creation. We’re happy to compare the 4.7 percent unemployment rate Mitt Romney was able to accomplish. If President Obama had even half the job creation record of Mitt Romney, then he would be running on it.

On the other hand, Obama has promised Julia she'd grow up to be a web designer, or some other job held by heroines in romantic comedy films.
