Just be Glad Robert Samuelson Does’t Vote


Listen: Government can “create” jobs precisely to the degree to which it engages in patronage and payola.

Contra Samuelson, Dear Leader is the last person who needs to go to “job-creating” school. He’s from Chicago!

He (BHO) has certainly done our culture one service by helping discredit this kind of sophistry. In the coming century Americans may at least be more inclined to suspicion when a politician tries to describe wealth transfers to preferred-status constituency groups as “job creation.”

Samuelson, who incidentally will not live to see most of that century, remains credulous.

UPDATE: If government got out of the job-creatin’ business, what ever could it do with its time?

How ’bout protecting the rights of real job-creators?
