President Barack Obama is acting like he’s not in office as he campaigns around the country asking Americans whether they are satisfied with the status quo, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said on “Fox News Sunday.”

The fact of the matter is, Priebus told host John Roberts, there are half a million more people unemployed today than there were prior to Obama’s election.

“If they kept their promises, there would be eight and a half million more people employed today then there would be four years ago,” he said. “The fact of the matter is, this president can’t fulfill a promise. They’re living in fantasy land.”

Last week’s jobs report brought dismal news for the third consecutive month — a stagnant 8.2-percent unemployment rate.

“Mitt Romney has to win for the sake of the very idea of America,” Priebus said. “Mitt Romney has to win for liberty and freedom, and we have to put an end to this Barack Obama presidency before it puts an end to our way of life in America.”

He called Obama the “fundraiser-in-chief” and said his presidency has been “divisive” and his campaigning “nasty” and “negative.”

“Mitt Romney’s legacy is success in business, making promises and keeping promises, and that’s something that this president would only dream of being able to campaign on through November,” Priebus said.
