This week, supporters of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney have been bashing President Barack Obama for broken promises. U.S. Rep. Connie Mack, the overwhelming favorite to win the Republican nomination to challenge Democrat incumbent U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, went to bat for Romney on Tuesday, hammering Obama on the economy and the national debt.
“America might be in deeper trouble than we thought: a new report says our nation’s average weekly wages dropped in 2011 for only the fifth time in thirty-three years,” Mack said in a statement. “Unfortunately, this does not come as much of a surprise, seeing as how the average duration of unemployment has doubled since President Obama took office. It’s now a staggering 39.7 weeks.
“Instead of making strides to repair our broken economy, however, we have a president who believes ‘the private sector is doing fine.’ At times, the president seems as if he is in denial,” continued Mack.
Mack pointed to a quote from Obama in which the president said, “What we have been able to do over the last 3-1/2 years, after a decade in which we had been moving in the wrong direction, is to begin to point towards a trajectory where here in this country, everybody is getting a fair shot.”
