RNC Chair Reince Priebus speaks at CPAC 2013.
"My fellow Republicans, this really can't be good news for us."
With nearly 1.4 million jobs created so far in 2014, we're in the middle of the strongest start to job growth since the 1999, when Bill Clinton was president and nearly 1.5 million jobs were created in the first half of the year.

We learned this earlier today with the release of the June jobs report, and at the risk of sounding like an optimist, I'd have to say that's pretty good news. Well, good new unless you're Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus, who took 40 minutes to come up with this sad sack response:

We need a Republican majority in the Senate so we can get job-creating legislation to the president's desk.
Sorry to break to you Reince, but every single year under Bush started out worse than this. Every single one. And it's not because Bush was unlucky: It's because his economic policies were terrible. And his economic policies are the same policies that a Republican Senate would seek to impose.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
