Romney Hits Obama on Unemployment in Chicago

by Katrina Trinko

President Obama is flying into his hometown of Chicago tonight for a birthday fundraiser (he turns 50 tomorrow), and in anticipation, the Romney campaign released a web video today highlighting the 48 percent jump in unemployment in the Chicago area since the president took office. Using clips from Obama’s speech at Chicago’s Grant Park in 2008, saying, “Change is coming,” the video paints a stark picture of how the ensuing economic downturn was not the change requested.
