Wow! That was painful... I was wondering when he was going to start addressing “The Iraq” and describe his program to issue maps to every Connecticut resident.

Ping to Dickie Blumenthal doing his best Miss South Carolina impersonation.

What a complete idiot. He blabbed his way through the question while attempting to squeeze in all of his liberal buzz words..."stronger government intervention, government can help, taxing policies"...

She blew him away on this one.

He didn’t have a clue. A bumbling bozo. A typical democrat.

Yes, it would. People can say what they will about Linda McMahon but she understands capitalism.

For a minute there I thought I was watching a Miss America pageant with the contestant answering “If you were a color, what color would you be?” This assclown LIB has to go down. The guy is smarmy, at best.

Turning himself inside out to keep from admitting that the private sector creates jobs. It’s obvious the libs know the truth but cannot admit it and follow their big gov agenda.

And he “stood up for jobs”. Well, a lot of people are standing in line for jobs now, I guess. But “standing up for jobs” doesn’t create a job.

He apparently also thinks it’s bad for us to buy things built in other countries. I wonder how many foreign products he has in his house — that would also make a great commercial, although I presume he was not stupid enough to own a car made by a foreign car company (even though some of those are more “american” than “american” cars.

No audio in "safe mode."

OTOH, that gives one a different perspective. Knowing Blumenthal personally (and therefore despising him as any normal human would) I am trying to get my head wrapped around a combination of Miss South Carolina's intellectual capacity and the attitude that rogue government is somehow entitled to enthusiastically snuff the innocent (a sort of echo of the WWII B*tch of Buchenwald).

Dear Elk,

I forgot about that computer problem that popped up between here and there.

Here is the Blumenthal part of the text. He is completely lost until 30 seconds in when he decides not to bother answering the question:

McMahon to Blumenthal: “How is a job created?”

A job is created ...
and it can be a variety of ways.
By...
a variety of people, but principally by
people and businesses in response
to demand for products and services
...and...
the main point about jobs in Connecticut is
we can and we should create more of them by creative policies, and that’s the kind of approach that I want to bring to Washington.

I have stood up for jobs...when...they’ve been at stake.

I stood up for jobs at Aldermen Motors when GM wanted to shut down that part of the buulding.

I stood up for jobs at Pratt and Whitney when that company wanted to ship them out of state and overseas.

I stood up for jobs at Stanley Works ... when ...it was threatened with a hostile takeover.

I know about how government can help preserve jobs. And I will want programs that will provide more capital for small businesses, better tax policies that will promote creation of jobs, stronger intervention by government to make sure that we use the “Made in America” ... policies and “Buy America” policies to keep jobs here, rather than buying products that are manufactured overseas as WWE has done.
