She is quickly becoming the very definition of a political hack. Remember this is the same woman that could not find her way to apologize for a video so poorly edited it made Mitt Romney look like he was out of touch. Remember the famous Wawa video? Except this video is so much juicier.
Although I should not be surprised NBC is known for editing little pieces of video so that they make the Democratic agenda look better. This time however Mrs. Alan Greenspan got her lunch handed to her by Romney surrogate, and former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu. It was an embarrassment not for Sununu, but for Mitchell and journalism in general.
Listen my little mobsters as John Sununu pushes back against Andrea Mitchell pushing back at him on who is the bigger outsourcer in chief, Romney or Obama?
Perhaps the folks over at Ace put it best when they said, “Poor Andrea Mitchell was inadequately briefed by the White House on what Talking Points she should offer. Sununnu chuckles at her by the end”.
And here is some bonus video … Mitchell clearly thinks she will have the upper hand in an argument over 97% of small businesses getting a tax cut in Obama”s proposal from yesterday. After all the WaPo says it’s true … but as we explained this morning … the 3% who get their taxes hiked, create the jobs.
Most commonly, the Small Business Administration uses the definition of less than 500 employees to denote small, but out of the 27 million firms in the U.S., 21 million are nonemployer firms and approximately 2.3 million have more than four employees.
So, do these 2.3 million firms deserve their reputation as job creators? Yes and no—yes, in that some of these firms are aspiring and do plan to create jobs. We do know from the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor that in 2010 nascent and growing firms had fairly low expectations for growth. This study, which surveys individuals in the process of starting or growing ventures, found that 14.3% of early-stage entrepreneurs (those less than 42 months old) expected to create 20 or more jobs in five years.
