Ah Sorry Republican Chairman Steele… SAY WHAT!

GOP Chairman Attacks Obama Plan For “Creating” Jobs

from Daily Kos by Jed L

Michael Steele redefines stupidity (h/t, JJP):

STEELE: You’ve got to look at what’s going to create sustainable jobs. What this administration is talking about is making work. It is creating work.

STEPHANOPOULOS: But that’s a job.

STEELE: No, it’s not a job. A job is something that — that a business owner creates. It’s going to be long term. What he’s creating…

STEPHANOPOULOS: So a job doesn’t count if it’s a government job?

(CROSSTALK) STEELE: Hold on. No, let me — let me — let me finish. That is a contract. It ends at a certain point, George. You know that. These road projects that we’re talking about have an end point. As a small-business owner, I’m looking to grow my business, expand my business. I want to reach further. I want to be international. I want to be national. It’s a whole different perspective on how you create a job versus how you create work. And I’m — either way, the bottom line is…

STEPHANOPOULOS: I guess I don’t really understand that distinction.

STEELE: Well, the difference — the distinction is this. If a government — if you’ve got a government contract that is a fixed period of time, it goes away. The work may go away. That’s — there’s no guarantee that that — that there’s going to be more work when you’re done in that job.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Yes, but we’ve seen millions and millions of jobs going away in the private sector just in the last year.

STEELE: But they come — yes, they — and they come back, though, George. That’s the point. When they go — they’ve gone away before, and they come back.

Say What? So this is what its coming down to on the Republican side. Anything that they can say to try to make anything the other side does look bad. Uah Chairman Steele this is just plain STUPID!

  1. I would love a strong two party system because I think it would only make us better, but this is ridiculous.

  2. I know Catherine, I feel the same way you do! This Red and Blue state stuff must stop… President Obama may be able to do it if the entire country gives him a chance. I finally feel some hope and some pride!

    Catherine I am a retired Navy Chief Warrant Officer and currently working for the government providing training to our military as they prepare to go to Iraq and Afghanistan. Believe me when I tell you I want us to come together and became a great country in the eyes of the world once again!
