Rick Santorum Blames Obama for High Unemployment

The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics unveiled a report on Friday showing that the national unemployment rate remained at 9.1 percent in August. Mulling these numbers over, former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania pointed the blame at President Barack Obama.

"This morning's jobs report is another sad sign that President Obama's economic policies would need to improve dramatically to even be described as incompetent,” said Santorum. “For three years, in speech after speech, the president has claimed to be focused on the American worker, but month after month and report after report shows the opposite. So, either the president's economic policies are killing this economy or his lack of leadership -- either way, President Obama is to blame. Employers need certainty and freedom to expand and that's what my jobs plan would do."
