JOB CREATORS DON’T BUILD THE ECONOMY; GOVERNMENT SPENDING DOES!
Let’s begin by remembering that the most coherent speech ever given by Joe Biden wasn’t even written for Joe Biden; he plagiarized it. Biden announced his candidacy for the presidency in June 1987, and was considered by many to be one of the Democratic frontrunners. However, in September, newspapers broke the story that Crazy Joe had plagiarized a speech by British politician Neil Kinnock. Other allegations of past law school plagiarism and exaggeration of his academic record soon followed and Biden withdrew from the race within the month. (As was the case with Monica and the cigar, these are the sorts of things that Democrats tend to sweep under the rug.)
The point of the above mini-history lesson is this: whenever Joe Biden speaks as Joe Biden, there’s no telling what level of craziness is going to come out of his mouth. Such was the case recently when Joe informed the world that job creators don’t build the economy, government spending builds the economy. (I’ll pause here and give you time to read that over again – slowly.)
Got it? Great, let’s go to the transcript and allow Uncle Crazy to further educate us:
“Romney believes somehow, that those so-called job creators will make everything okay for the rest of us. We believe that the way to build this country is the way we always have, from the middle out; to invest in the things that have always made our economy grow: innovation, research, development, infrastructure, and education.”
So, Joe? You’re saying that job creators – oops, sorry – “so-called job creators” – didn’t build America? John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, Cornelius (Commodore)Vanderbilt and Henry Ford grew the economy “from the middle out” you’re saying? You were just messin’ with us, right? Okay, so if job creators don’t build the economy, Joe, who does?
“Government [spending] works if there’s a tax system where everybody, everybody, pays their fair share. Nothing has been asked of them [millionaires] in this horrendous recession.”
This statement is so ludicrous, where the hell do you begin? Let’s run with Crazy’s assumption for a moment; where does the government get its money, Joe? Let me ask it this way: does the government generate more revenue – or less – when more people are employed? Who employs the employed? (Say, “job creators,” Joe.) And, while I fully realize that you and your boss have a robotic responsibility to include the term “fair share” in every class warfare speech you give, the stupidest part of your comment is the “Nothing has been asked of them” part. You meant, of course, nothing but the 70% of total taxes they pay, right, Joe?
Listen, I know that you and O are speaking to the “less than informed” Kool-Aid-drinking masses, but have you guys ever stopped to think about what morons you sound like to those of us who are informed? Yeah, I know, you couldn’t care less; a stupid vote is as valuable as an informed vote – and that there are a whole lot more of the former than the latter in your column . Never mind, Joe, I see your logic.
Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.
