RNC Chair Reince Priebus speaks at CPAC 2013.

"My fellow Republicans, this really can't be good news for us."

With nearly 1.4 million jobs created so far in 2014, we're in the middle of the strongest start to job growth since the 1999, when Bill Clinton was president and nearly 1.5 million jobs were created in the first half of the year.

We learned this earlier today with the release of the June jobs report, and at the risk of sounding like an optimist, I'd have to say that's pretty good news. Well, good new unless you're Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus, who took 40 minutes to come up with this sad sack response:

We need a Republican majority in the Senate so we can get job-creating legislation to the president's desk. http://t.co/...

Sorry to break to you Reince, but every single year under Bush started out worse than this. Every single one. And it's not because Bush was unlucky: It's because his economic policies were terrible. And his economic policies are the same policies that a Republican Senate would seek to impose.
