Dear Editor:

Folks, remember GOP House Speaker John Boehner’s famous question, “Where are the jobs, Mr. President?” Hey John, look at the Labor Department’s April data.

1) 288,000 new jobs — highest in 5 1/2 years.

2) 6.3 percent unemployment, a drop from 6.7 percent in March. Lowest since January 2008. Over 9 million new jobs created on Obama’s watch.

The annual budget debt was cut from $1.2 trillion to $500 billion in 2013 and 2014. The Dow went up from 6,700 points when Obama took office in 2009 to 16,600 points on May 2.

Fox and Friends, along with Republicans in Congress, said back in 2012 that Obama will never lower the 10.2 percent job-lost rate to 7 percent. Remember, he has 2 1/2 more years to get it down to my 5.5 percent prediction!
