    "Appearing at a Boston rally for Democrat gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley on Friday, Hillary Clinton told the crowd gathered at the Park Plaza Hotel not to listen to anybody who says that “businesses create jobs.”

    “Don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses create jobs,” Clinton said.

    1) Is anybody shocked at all that Hillary's comment got turned into a sound bite? I'm not... context or none both parties do this RAMPANTLY...
    2) Do I agree with her with the context? Nope
    3) Do I understand her position? I think I do. But in practice I've found the strategy not only penalizing to the corporations that deserve it, but they also have a tendency to bite the smaller businesses that aren't. Republicans tend not to do enough to balance it even though their rhetoric tends to center around that concept. This is of course ignoring what people's opinions of either party is.

    In essence, I don't like distorting what people say when the policies in practice do enough to make the statement, but people are alarmists sometimes making rational discussions of those issues difficult to mediate

    Every company I ever worked for created more jobs when there was more demand for their product or service they provided than they could currently handle.

    But they did create the jobs. Thank you for verifying that Hillary is an idiot.

    Hillary may be a lot of things, but she is not an idiot. Its obvious what she meant is that demand creates jobs. No successful business just hires a bunch of people with the notion that demand will magically appear. Nor do they just hire a bunch of people because they got a tax break. Companies hire more employees when they can no longer increase the productivity levels of their current workforce to service the demand for the goods and services that company provides.

    The real truth of the matter is that you'll not be creating very many jobs without both demand and business.

    That Hillary doubled down on such a ridiculous assertion that jobs aren't created by business does in fact show her to be pandering. Pandering to the far left, business hating part of the electorate. Like some of those that have posted here and made themselves be known. Something about an oral fixation and business if I recall.

    Without a thriving and growing business segment an economy is sure to flounder and fail. Just have to look at what Communist Russia's economic performance.

    Without demand, you've got nothing to drive business to invest and expand. So you can't really do without that either. Just look at the lagging demand of any recession, and you can see the downward economic spiral (demand lags, businesses lay off people, more demand lags, more businesses lay off people, lather, rinse, repeat).

    The reverse work equally well. Demand increases, businesses invest and grow, creating even more demand, lather, rinse, repeat. And upward economic spiral.

    The real pity here is that some some can't come to grips with the fact that both demand and business are required for the upward economic spiral, and pretty much give in to their partisan ideology and ignore that real facts here.

    Further, it's also a real pity that some are so pro-union, that they seem to propound the crippling of business in favor of the union so much so that the business would die. I guess they've never come to the realization that the two are co-dependent, and that without one, you won't long have the other; that the Union in fact relies on the business to be there, healthy and profitable, so as to be able to afford union labor.

    In both cases, it's a reasonably fair and reasonably equitable balance that it the best of all situations. Tilting too far from that reasonably fair and reasonably equitable balance and one of the parties involved will start to die, and directly affect the other with great detriment.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    There was no distortion.

    Pandering? You bet. But she'll believe it in the Primaries.
    One thing is certain, she's the ersatz version of the Dem currently at the top of the heap and she doesn't like that reality one bit.
