Concord, NH -- New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Wayne MacDonald released the following statement in response to what could be President Barack Obama's last State of the Union address:
"Tonight, New Hampshire voters heard another lofty speech filled with promises to boost job creation and rebuild our economy, but this is the same empty rhetoric they've heard year after year. President Obama simply doesn't realize that his commitment falls short because his so-called 'accomplishments' are the problem. ObamaCare, reckless spending and job-destroying regulations are hurting small business owners and drowning out the free market with more government.
"Despite these promises, the unfortunate reality is that the national unemployment rate is significantly higher today than it was when he took office. Too many New Hampshire workers either can't find a job or are under-employed.
"As we look ahead to 2012, the President's broken promises on the economy and his record of more spending, more debt and more taxes will prove to be a liability for Democrats running for office across our state."
