Even Mitt Romney Didn't Think He Could Get The Unemployment Rate To Fall This Fast

This is what Presidential silver medalist, Mitt Romney said back in 2012:

"I can't possibly predict precisely what the unemployment rate would be at the end of one year. I can tell you that over a period of four years, by virtue of the policies that we put in place, we get the unemployment rate down to 6 percent, or perhaps a little lower," he said.
Well, look at that. Seems Mittens thought that even the power of FREEDOM that his policies would unleash wouldn't be enough to get the UE rate down to 6% until 2016. Yet here we are at 5.9% in 2014, two years ahead of schedule, and with more of Obama's job killing tax hikes and regulations in place than in 2012.

By Romney's own standards, he should be glad that he lost the presidency. After all, would he really want to subject the American people to another two years of less than impressive job growth?
