“When I came into office, we had a problem with our economy; it was in a recession. In order to make sure this country is hopeful and people have a better chance to realize their dreams, we need economic growth,” he said.

Bush made no direct reference to the dismal report, which seemed to show that an employment spurt, in which 1.5 million jobs had been created since August 2003, was fizzling out.
