• Krauthammer: Hillary’s “Businesses Don’t Create Jobs” Comment Will “Haunt Her”

    Politicians make gaffes. It’s just a thing they do. And some elected officials, like Joe Biden, commit more gaffes than others.

    But the gaffe that Hillary Clinton made late last week is one that Charles Krauthammer says won’t be easily forgotten.

    “Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs,” Clinton said during a rally in Massachusetts for Democratic gubernatorial nominee Martha Coakley.

    Hillary was “trying to take a stab at this idea that it’s not an individual, capitalism, and corporations” that create jobs in America, Krauthammer said. “It had no elaboration. And it is going to haunt her. It is going to be shown over and over again.”

    On Monday at a campaign event for New York Rep. Sean Maloney, Hillary attempted to clean up her mess saying “Let me be absolutely clear about what I’ve been saying for a couple of decades: Our economy grows when businesses and entrepreneurs create good-paying jobs here in an America where workers and families are empowered to build from the bottom up and the middle out — not when we hand out tax breaks for corporations that outsource jobs or stash their profits overseas.”

    “It does show you how much Democrats overestimate” Hillary Clinton’s “skill as a politician,” Kratuhammer added. “It’s a signal to Democrats that if you can’t make the elementary liberal argument about the role of government without making this ridiculous statement that jobs are not created by corporations, then you are not going to make a good candidate–as she didn’t in ’08.”


    I’m sure Senator Warren is watching Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden step on one land mine after another, with a big smile on her face. If Hillary keeps this up, they’ll certainly be a lot fewer people willing to write checks to her potential presidential campaign.
