Obama Welcomes Feeble Jobs Report
[T]he president praised the report while speaking at a White House conference on women and the economy, even as GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and other Republican leaders responded negatively.
“We welcome today’s news,” the president said. “But there will still be ups and downs along the way.”
Romney, the front-runner in the GOP race, called the jobs data “weak and very troubling.”
“More and more people are growing so discouraged that they are dropping out of the labor force altogether. … The president’s excuses have run out.”
