    Hillary Clinton slams trickle-down economics, 'business' doesn't create jobs?

    " Hillary Clinton*is making the news this weekend based on a controversial quote she stated — that businesses and corporations don’t create*jobs.*"

    So, here we go again...business doesn't create jobs...what a joke.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    I find the thread title unnecessarily incendiary.

    Millionth time this thread has been posted.

    Taken out of context and bad idea to pursue.

    Same with "what difference does it make"

    and "you didn't build that"

    It'll blow up in your face, because you'll end up doing something stupid like hosting a Republican National convention under the auspices of "We built that" in a stadium built with public money...

    I don't know who would do something that stupid...

    Well, she did try and walk back her comments yesterday. Now I wonder why she would do that if she didn't come up with a gaffe?

    Do you think all those saying she was taking out of context can figure out what that means to walk back her comment?

    She knows better. She just can't deal with the urge to tell people what she thinks they want to hear rather than what she believes. I sometimes think a politician that would tell the truth consistently would win a landslide. Unfortunately, we've never had the chance to find out.

    Many (if not most) politicians taylor their "message" to maximize the cheering of the current audience. Somehow that is not expected to result in them being said to be for all three sides of a given issue yet somewhat against it too. We no longer have flip-flops or gaffes we now have evolving positions and clarifications - at least for the front runners of the preferred party. .

    Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
