Former Democratic National Committee Chair Terry McAuliffe noted that the U.S. economy has created jobs for 27 straight months after hemorrhaging 750,000 jobs a month when Mr. Obama took office in the midst of the financial crisis of 2007-2009.
"Anyone in politics would like to have great economic numbers. I would make the argument that we do have excellent numbers on job creation," McAuliffe said in an interview with "CBS This Morning" co-host Charlie Rose.
The Labor Department on Friday said the unemployment rate rose a tick to 8.2 percent and the economy added just 69,000 jobs in May, sending the benchmark S&P 500 index of stocks plunging to its lowest level since early January.

czars + staff and wifes entourage to start
One has to wonder when mcauliffe started sniffing glue. Had to have been either before or after he stopped lying to his wife.
This clown has never told the truth in his life.
On what planet does a negative number = job creation?
Bizarro World, thats where.
Looks like Terry picked the wrong day to stop sniffing glue.
when Bush was president and the unemployment rate was at 4.5% these same idiots were claiming it to be the worst economy since the great depression.
This is the same genius who, after the GOP siezed the Senate in 2002, said, “This is a wake up call for GWB..”
His vast intellect was too much for the DNC so they brought in Wasserman-Shultz..
well, let’s give credit where credit is due, he has created a plethora of federal czars.......
To get the fundamental essence of that statement just imagine him saying that just after huffing a balloon full of helium.
Where’s Howard Dean been keeping himself?
