The spectacle of politicians standing next to a highway construction site talking about "creating" jobs while their policies are destroying many times the jobs they promise to "create" in the future is truly amazing. The media will fawn and praise this noble politician and give him awards for his "just words just speeches".
How many jobs has this country lost this year? 6 million? more?
Raising taxes and creating new stifling regulations while visiting sites for speeches promising to somehow create jobs in the anti-growth atmosphere their policies create is the height of hypocrisy. Don't expect the media to report the facts or ask questions and don't expect the politicians to ever tell the truth. That way you won't be disappointed in them.
So there was Barack Hussein Obama, mmm mmm mmm, standing by the highway for his photo-op promising his Soviet style "stimulus".
They seem to be trying to guarantee no economic recovery. These programs destroy more jobs than they create, creating malinvestments by funneling money from where it would do the most good to where it will benefit politicians.
