GOP presidential hopefuls: July jobs growth is not good enough
Republicans rejected slightly better-than-expected job creation in July as not good enough on Friday, using it as political fodder against President Obama.

The unemployment rate ticked downward to 9.1 percent in July after the economy added 117,000 jobs last month, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). June's anemic job growth was revised upward to reflect 46,000 jobs added.
