Obama: Jobs report 'step in the right direction'

Aurora 2012/07/06 16:52:06
POLAND, Ohio -- President Obama brushed past a gloomy jobs report
today, saying the economy has created 4.4 million jobs in the past 28
months.

"That's a step in the right direction," Obama told about
350 people packed into an elementary school gym, "but we can't be
satisfied."

Obama spoke a few hours after the Labor Department
reported 80,000 jobs in June, not enough to keep the economy growing -- a
point quickly made by Republican candidate Mitt Romney and other GOP
lawmakers.

Noting that the unemployment rate remains at 8.2%,
Romney blamed Obama's economic policies and said, "It doesn't have to
be this way. America can do better, and this kick in the gut has got to
end."
