Paul Ryan says President Obama 'really bad' at creating jobs

CREATED Sep. 8, 2012

Sparks, NV (KTNV) -- GOP Vice-Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan campaigned in Sparks Friday morning.

He told the crowd at the Peterbilt Truck Parts and Equipment Facility that President Barack Obama doesn't deserve another four years.

"We want to earn your support. We want to deserve victory. Here's the problem with President Obama and too many politicians like him in Washington, they are more worried about their next election, then they're worried about the next generation," said Ryan.

Also on the campaign trail with their husbands Friday, First Lady Michelle Obama and Jill Biden. Mitt Romney's wife, Ann, campaigned in Leesburg, Virginia.

SPARKS, Nev. (AP) -- Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan says President Barack Obama isn't a bad guy, he's just "really bad" at creating jobs.

The Wisconsin congressman campaigned in the Reno area of Nevada Friday, the same day the Labor Department released new evidence of a painfully slow economic recovery. The unemployment rate fell to 8.1 percent from 8.3 percent in July, but only because more people gave up looking for work.

Ryan says that for every new job added last month, four people stopped trying to find a job.

He's blaming Obama's "failed leadership" and says the incumbent supports a "government-centered society."

Ryan says the only way to improve the nation's economy is to elect Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
