WASHINGTON - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney pounced on a weak US jobs report on Friday to denounce President Barack Obama's economic policies, saying "this kick in the gut has got to end."

Appearing before reporters in New Hampshire, Romney moved quickly to take advantage of a Labor Department report that said the US jobless rate held steady at 8.2 percent in June with a less-than-projected 80,000 jobs created.

"The president's policies have not gotten America working again and the president is going to have to stand up and take responsibility for it," Romney said.
