GOP presidential contender Michele Bachmann says President Barack Obama’s assertion that 9.1 percent unemployment is a “bump in the road” in America’s economic recovery greatly minimizes the problem because the lack of jobs is actually “the Grand Canyon in the middle of the road.”

“Well, it’s an admission of failure, Sean,” Bachmann said. “Just like you’ve mentioned the president said that it was a bump in the road to have 9.1 percent unemployment — that isn’t a bump in the road, that’s the Grand Canyon in the middle of the road."

“And then the recent story came out that the president hasn’t even sat down and met with his economic advisers since April," she said. "I think what this shows is that the president has taken his eye off of the number one issue of paramount concern to the American people — that’s turning the economy around,” she said.

“He’s failed us, Sean. And that’s why I firmly believe he will be a one-term president. And it is why I want to bring my background as a job creator and also as a tax lawyer, to the White House.”
Bachmann, who gained significant traction in her presidential quest after Monday’s GOP New Hampshire debate, said Obama’s recent comments that his family — and sometimes the president himself — have pondered being a one-term president resonate with Americans.
“I think this is one instance, Sean, where the American people would agree with Barack Obama,” she said.  “I think they are taking a look at him — they’re putting him in the balance and finding him wanting. And I don’t think that he has the public support right now for a second term.
“This will be a very difficult election for this president,” Bachmann said. “And that's why we need to have a candidate who is going to take him on and hold him accountable for his failed policies.”
