Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley asserted on Sunday that Americans should blame Republicans for the high unemployment rate among youth, rather than President Barack Obama or Democrats.

Asked if the GOP could be blamed for the 17 percent unemployment rate among adults 18 to 24 years old, the chairman of the Democratic Governors Association replied in the affirmative.

“Yes, we can. because more jobs were created in the private sector last year alone than in all eight years of George W. Bush,” O’Malley said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “We did not get into the economic problems we did in because President Obama was in office for two months. I mean, the ground was laid by the bad policies of George W. Bush.”

Further, O’Malley attacked Republicans for what he viewed as obfuscation in Congress, and Republican governors for public cuts at the state level.

” We need to give credit to the Republicans in Congress [who defeated] every jobs bill and slow down the economy and frankly, I’m a little bit surprised at just how successful many Republican governors were at cutting the the public sector so that teacher and the police and firefighter jobs would be a drag on the otherwise consistent private sector growth,” O’Malley said.
