Washington Examiner ^ | 7/3/12 | Joel Gehrk

Posted on 07/03/2012 7:39:34 PM PDT by Nachum

Vice President Joe Biden faulted Mitt Romney for believing that “so-called job creators” build the economy, as he suggested that government spending and increased taxes on the wealthy would provide long-term economic strength. “[Romney believes] somehow, that those so-called job creators will make everything okay for the rest of us,” Biden said at the National Education Association conference. “We believe that the way to build this country is the way we always have, from the middle out . . .

Biden said this government spending must be supported by “a tax system where everybody, everybody, pays their fair share.” .....Good. Tax the 52% who pay no taxes and get money back.

When I was eight, my Dad “created” lots of jobs for me.
Allowance wasn't free.

When I was ten, the Local Newspaper “created” a job for me as a Paperboy.

When I was twelve, I “created” my own job doing Yard Work in the Neighborhood.

In other words, I had more jobs before I was twelve than Obama has had in almost 50 years.

Keep talking Plugs, you effing idiot! Even democrats cringe when you open your mouth anywhere near a microphone. Biden is an embarassament.

You never see a photo of Biden from the side because the light coming out of his ear canal ruins the shot.

If government spending led to job creation and growth, we would be in the greatest boom of all time.

Joe, after 236 years, why has that ceased to be true???

Answer, because Lefists like you sabotage the economy when free marketers are in power. You are numbered with the evil, Joe.

Biden is a moron.

All wealth is created by the private sector.

Government’s job is to provide the rule of law, secure our borders and secure our trade routes so that the private sector can operate successfully.

This is satire, right? Please tell me this is satire. Biden can’t be this stupid and have gotten to where he is. It isn’t possible, is it? If so, my black lab is quite literally smarter than he is. At least she can be trained, learns from mistakes and negative feedback.

The pathetic thing is Joe Biden, his staff, the DNC, the media and everyone involved in putting out this message knows it is a lie. They know they are lying, or doing their part in promoting the lie... but they must get the message out to the masses of idiot voters they depend on.

Joe knows from personal experience how wealth is created -

Through extortion, graft, influence peddling and theft.

"That guy’s mind operates at a 5th-grade level...."

I was thinking just about the same thing.

"...as he suggested that government spending and increased taxes on the wealthy would provide long-term economic strength."

They are teaching this stuff to our students now. This is the one of the biggest reasons I fear for this country. They are drilling it into our kids that being wealthy is morally wrong and wealthy people are evil and only government can save the day.

invest in the things that have always made our economy grow: innovation, research, development,

When this country actually made stuff it wasn't because the government "invested" in some new fangled technology. It was because their was a demand and somebody with the initiative and innovation stepped in to meet that demand. The one exception to that might be, and this is a really big might, defense and space exploration. Even there industry is producing a product to fill the need of the government who is acting as a consumer.

What we get when the government screws with the demand curve is things like the housing bubble. Coerce banks into making bad loans which artificially drives up demand. That worked out really well, didn't it.

Nah, they would just find some Keynesian to teach it and no good would be accomplished.

Small businesses create jobs. Neither party seems to know that.

Big businesses create jobs, but they also eliminate them, so there is little net effect.

The problem with the government creating jobs is they do it with other people's money.
