Urbandale, Iowa – Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann issued the following statement in response to today's jobs report showing unemployment at 9.1 percent:

"The new unemployment report, showing unemployment at 9.1 percent, is a reminder that President Obama was correct yesterday when he said the economy needed 'a jolt,' because, as he said, America is at risk of a 'double-dip recession.' That 'jolt' should be good economic medicine, unfortunately, the President is offering only bad medicine--higher taxes, more spending, more dubious 'green jobs' boondoggles, and more tactical blame-gaming.

"Today's report, showing the creation of just 103,000 jobs, is a warning sign that we could be entering another recessionary period--although, for many Americans, the previous recession never ended. And this week we have been reminded yet again that the President is offering no good plan, and thus no real hope. As President Harry Truman said, 'the buck stops here.' Mr. President - you can't hide from your responsibility and if you try, you won't succeed; for that reason, you will be a one-term president."
