The two latest examples of Democrat ineptitude, incompetence, and total math fail come to us from none other than Nancy Pelosi (the best speaker of the house EVAH) and Joe “doll hair” Biden. First up is Nancy Pelosi with both bad math and shameless lies. As Ben Domenech points out at RedState, Pelosi claimed that Obamacare would create (or save!) 4 million jobs with 400,000 of them being created immediately. While no one else could know what was in the bill before they passed the bill, she was somehow magically able to pull that figure out of her arse. Why? Because it was a total lie. In fact, the bill actually lost Americans nearly 800,000 jobs. (pdf) Eh. Why let pesky old facts and figures get in the way of lies and damn lies? Plus, math is hard anyway.
Telling the truth is difficult too, evidently. If you are a Democrat, at least. Remember, that whole “jobs bill” was also a total fabrication.
PROMISES, PROMISES: Jobs Bill Won’t Add Many Jobs
WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s a bipartisan jobs bill that would hand President Barack Obama a badly needed political victory and placate Republicans with tax cuts at the same time. But it has a problem: It won’t create many jobs.
”We’re skeptical that it’s going to be a big job creator,” said Bill Rys, tax counsel for the National Federation of Independent Business. ”There’s certainly nothing wrong with giving a tax break to a business that’s hired a new worker, especially in these tough times. But in terms of being an incentive to hire a lot of workers, we’re skeptical.”
Whoops! Jobs shmobs; it’s all about the speeches, baby. If only they would spend more time explaining their outright fallacies to us rubes. That is the problem, you see. It couldn’t possibly be that everything they touch turns into massive fail. That’s what happens when the people in charge have never actually run a business or, you know, lived and worked in the real world. No wonder President Obama, and most of the Democrats on the campaign trail, are always talking about how they “hear stories.” It is because they have zero real world experience of their own. I wonder if they can see November from their Ivory Towers.
Or, they have delusional experiences. The latest is the paranoid belief in “shadowy groups” giving money to conservative candidates narrative. You know, super scary nefarious organizations like the Chamber of Commerce. To be fair, it makes sense that the current crop of Democrats would be frightened of a business organization, seeing as how they obviously believe capitalism and free markets are evil and all.
Which leads me to Joe Biden, the man one heart-beat away from the presidency.
