DNC Chair: 'Pretty Happy' With Private Sector Job Growth



DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz seemingly had her own "doing fine" moment on Fox News Sunday, where she said she was "pretty happy" with the state of the private sector.

Fox News' John Roberts began: “So then, is the suggestion that we should just do keep doing the same thing?  There’s that old definition of doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result...”

Wasserman Schultz assertively responded: "What we should do... I’m pretty happy about 28 straight months of job growth in the private sector."  [Emphasis added]

The timing coincided with former White House spokesperson Robert Gibbs' admission that "we're not growing fast enough and we're not adding enough jobs."

Fox's Roberts immediately pointed out that only 80,000 jobs were added last month, and 69,000 the month before that.  Moreover, June's job report marked the 32nd time that the White House urged voters to ignore employment data, and unemployment remains at 8.2%.

A Romney spokesperson responded to the campaign's earlier claim that we are "going in the right direction" with a sarcastic email, writing: "Seriously?"

“It requires adding about 130-150k jobs a month to simply keep up with population growth; only 80k jobs is LOSING [sic] ground.”
