GOP presidential contender Michele Bachmann says President Barack Obama’s assertion that 9.1 percent unemployment is a “bump in the road” in America’s economic recovery greatly minimizes the problem because the lack of jobs is actually “the Grand Canyon in the middle of the road.”

The Minnesota congresswoman also told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Wednesday when the president acknowledges what he has labeled “shovel-ready jobs” aren’t yet available it is an admission he has failed when it comes to boosting the economy.
