WASHINGTON - Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on the weak 2nd quarter GDP number:
"Today's weak GDP number is just more devastating news for struggling American families. Our economy is growing far too slowly, proving President Obama's lack of focus on jobs is taking its toll," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.
"The president claims to be fighting for middle class jobs, but he has not had a Daily Economic Briefing on his official schedule in over a year. He also has not bothered to meet with his Jobs Council in over six months, but he did manage to attend over 110 fundraisers and play 10 rounds of golf in that time. Clearly, he has revealed his true priorities.
"Instead of spending his time fighting for American jobs, President Obama is working desperately to save his own. As a result, 23 million Americans are struggling for work. We need a new president who understands how the economy works and who will make job creation his number one priority. Mitt Romney will be that president."
