Michele Bachmann says President Obama is failing minorites, particularly African Americans and Hispanics.

Bachmann (R-Minn.) made the comments last week at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, cnsnews.com reports. She cited low unemployment numbers in both communities.

“This president has failed the Hispanic community. He has failed the African-American community,” said Bachmann. “He has failed us all when it comes to jobs.”

Other Republican presidential contenders—including Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Ron Paul and Herman Cain— spoke at the event. Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who has said he is considering a presidential bid, also spoke.

Bachmann made the comments on the nation's economy and blamed the president for high unemployment and an inability to create jobs.

“Mr. President, the status quo is not working for Americans,” said Bachmann. “The status quo certainly isn't working for the African-American community, with 16 percent unemployment, or the Hispanic community, with nearly 12 percent unemployment. It's even worse for the youth: For Hispanic youth right now, 26 percent unemployment; for African-American youth, 40 percent unemployment.

“As president of the United States, my goal will be job creation in the Hispanic community, job creation in the African-American community, job creation for all Americans, and turning this economy around,” said Bachmann. “And we will.”
