Not the only sign of the great divide between the people and the power, but one of the best. Hey small business, I’m on your side even if I don’t know a thing about what you do.
Two sound bites for your viewing pleasure. The first, McMahon asks Blumenthal if he knows how to create a job. His answer, tax credits and law suits, what else? She challenges him and he responds with an answer that only be described as arrogant. Entrepreneurs … I ain’t going to DC to be an entrepreneur.
Set aside he has no idea how to create a job, and kudos for explaining the process to Blumy … but to top it off with why do I need to know how to create a job I’m going to DC to be a law maker, is arrogance every small business person should take note of. More laws, more controls, more government, is what you get with electing the AG.
UPDATE: My political advisor and mentor pointed this one out to me. He’s a knowledgeable guy, and I respect his insight, but to be honest, I never saw this one coming. He said the first thing that came to mind when he heard Blumy try to answer the jobs question, was this video. Too harsh? Nahhhh.
I thought Ed Morrissey’s take on this was pretty remarkable.
First a mommy job meets a daddy job, and then they share a “special hug.” That may have been more coherent than the rambling non-answer given by Richard Blumenthal during the Connecticut debate last night. Linda McMahon directly challenged the lifetime public-sector official to describe how jobs get created, and Blumenthal showed that he clearly has no clue
Bite number two is just about as good. In case you did not know it … these are the good times. Happy Days are here again. setting up the bite, Blumenthal charges Linda laid workers off when she made money. She retorts … WWE has actually hired this year. Take it away Mr Blumenthal.
Good times? Out of touch.
