WASHINGTON, Oct. 6 (UPI) -- The chairman of the Republican National Committee charged Saturday that U.S. President Barack Obama hasn't produced the jobs he promised four years ago.
Delivering the GOP's weekly address, Reince Priebus said the president had "failed to produce any of the results that he promised us as a candidate," The Hill reported.
"President Obama simply hasn't shown the kind of leadership we need," Priebus added.
He said Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's business record and stint as governor of Massachusetts proved his ability to create jobs if he were elected president.
The party chairman said Romney had outlined during Wednesday's debate with Obama in Denver a "clear, specific plan" to create 12 million jobs, The Washington Times reported.
Priebus said Romney would cut taxes, push for more domestic energy production and have a strong hand in international affairs.
The Labor Department reported Friday the jobless rate fell to 7.8 percent in September, the lowest since Obama took office.
Priebus slammed the president for what he considered excessive campaigning. He said Obama had held 140 fundraisers since January, but had not met with his Jobs Council since the first of year.
In the remaining two debates, Priebus said the differences between the candidates "will grow sharper and the choice, clearer."
