RNC: So much for being on the upswing, Debbie

With a new report showing job growth is at risk of flat-lining in America, the Republican National Committee made sure to take Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz to task for saying this recently to the Sun-Sentinel: "We're no longer bleeding jobs. We've been adding jobs in the private sector for 17 straight months. We are on the upswing ever since President Obama took office.”

The AP suggests the upswing is over, as the RNC points out. "Employers added no net workers last month and the unemployment rate was unchanged, a sign that many were nervous the U.S. economy could be at risk of slipping into another recession," the story said.

It's unclear if we're sliding back into/or are in a recession now. But regardless, it feels like it. And that's another blow to the president's re-election hopes.
