RENO, Nev. -- "He's good at giving great speeches, he's just really bad at creating jobs."

That's Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan's take on President Obama's address at the DNC.

"Here's the problem," Ryan continued during a campaign rally in Reno, Nevada. "When you think that the road to success and prosperity is more borrowing, more spending, more taxing, more regulating, a government-centered society with a government run economy these are the kinds of results we will get and if we want the next 4 years to be any different than the last four years we need a new president."

The latest jobs report released Friday shows unemployment at 8.1 percent, and four people dropping out of the workforce for every net new job created.

It offered ammunition for Ryan to open up a new line of attack -- and he fired away.

"We can't keep doing this. Our economy needs to create just 150,000 jobs every month just to keep up with the growth of our population," Ryan said.

"Friends, this is not an economic recovery, this is nowhere close to an economic recovery. We need a new president and we need a real economic recovery."

Top Democrats are placing blame for those bleak jobs numbers squarely on the shoulders of Ryan, along with his GOP colleagues on Capitol Hill.

"While our recovery is still moving too slowly for many Americans, job growth would likely have been even stronger if Republicans had not blocked Democratic efforts to hire more teachers, firefighters and police officers," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said.

"The best way to speed up our recovery is for Republicans to stop their knee-jerk obstruction of every effort Democrats put forward, and start working across the aisle to find common ground."
