Britain picnic too young for seventy benefit.
-- the jobs reports well obviously not good news I'll give you the numbers again and -- 1151000.
Jobs created in April.
More than a half million people no longer in the -- forced just in the month of April.
Joining us now as -- HN he's -- -- -- -- We're waiting to for a response from the White House we wait a minute to characterize this jobs report we've not heard anything yet.
When we do we'll let you know if it happens in the next few seconds but I want you to characterize the jobs report I want you to Telus.
How Mitt Romney will use this report in his campaign.
Well the jobs report -- incredibly disappointing as you've noted the key statistic here to look at is the fact that you've got over half a million Americans.
-- dropped out of the labor force the labor force participation rate of 63 point 6% is the lowest of this presidency.
And that clearly the economy is not recovering at a pace that we would expect or want.
We're need you know one of Barack Obama took office set in 2009 he made big promises.
And he just hasn't lived up to those promises.
And -- Mitt Romney would -- -- would take the country have very different direction.
OK David Long of a Romney presidency.
He wants to stimulate the private sector not the public said he wants this in the private sector -- want what's the first thing he does to get jobs in the private sector.
We've got to get some certainty back into the economy and -- that job creators have the certainty they need to create jobs.
And to grow businesses and so that means doing things like guys in ensuring that our corporate tax rate is competitive with the rest of the world.
Insuring that we're doing things to get our trading relationships back on track to expand.
Markets and open them abroad for the United States to return balance of the relationship between labor and management which has become so out of balance during this administration only down to Arizona restaurant -- do it sounds falsely intellectually spousal -- cerebral.
You know going for the jugular you remain.
You with me.
Well well I I you know I think that that there are also number of other issues you look at energy as an example you know gas prices have doubled since this president took office.
And that's something that Americans are really feeling they're feeling the pain at the pop.
And by ensuring that we really get out there and explore our domestic sources of energy we can bring those energy prices down.
We can increase supply and and that's -- pocketbook issue that we know Americans feel alright.
We've got that decline in the unemployment rate down to eight point 1%.
I suspect we've not seen it yet but I suspect that the White House -- -- that is and the encouragement that's an encouraging direction.
What's -- if they say something like -- what will be the Roman accounts response.
Well that decline in the unemployment rate is due entirely to the fact that people gotten so discouraged by this economy they've just left the workforce they've stopped looking for work.
And that's not the direction this country needs to be headed and we can do better and under Mitt Romney we will.
All right Lana -- thanks for joining us a way to keep coming back -- wanna know what the Romney camp is saying as we get closer to the election.
And at some point would you see if we can get Mitt Romney on the show would you try that out for us -- what what we'll do our best -- but thanks for having me on again.

We'll what we'll do our best Steward -- the great show and and I I enjoy watching it so but but thank you for having me on -- light jet thanks for joining us appreciate it see answered thank.
