Spin, Spin, Spin...

Liberty -vs- Tyranny

I am not a advocate for, or supporter of Assange because he is of questionable integrity. However, having said this his captioned statement above is actually spot on. Recognizing its truism what is most critical for us to realize is most politicians, as well as those who represent them are grievously guilty of "hiding" the truth, or straight up lying.

Whether democrat or republican the reality is that both parties are responsible for stretching, and or distorting the truth. It is all too common in the worst case scenario to actual forgo the truth and feed the people outright fabrications or lies.

David Axelrod, a disciple of Plouffian politics and leftist dogma can no more be trusted for the truth than Karl Rove, the knuckle dragging Neanderthal of the false limited government republican scam.

Below is Axelrod's interview segment with Face the Nation this morning.

(CBS News) Obama campaign senior strategist David Axelrod continued the campaign's assault on Mitt Romney's record on Sunday's "Face the Nation," defending attacks on Bain Capital and challenging whether the president's Republican challenger is qualified to be called a "job creator."

"No one's arguing whether Mitt Romney is qualified to be president," Axelrod said of the former governor and private equity firm founder. "What we're arguing is whether he's qualified to call himself a job creator. That's not what he did in his business. That's not the purpose of his business, and it's certainly not what he did in Massachusetts where they had one of the worst economic records in the country."

In particular, Axelrod addressed criticism (some of which has come from Democrats) that the campaign's recent attacks on Romney's record at Bain Capital haven't been effective. On Thursday, former President Bill Clinton said in an interview that Romney's business record was "sterling."

Axelrod denied that Mr. Clinton's comments were approving of Romney as a candidate, telling anchor Bob Schieffer, "What he said was... his business record and the fact that he was a governor qualified him to be president. He went on to say that his economic views would be disastrous for the country. And I agree with him on that." {Read More}

One thing that particularly struck me as odd was this:

"What we're arguing is whether he's qualified to call himself a job creator."

Fair enough, I suppose. But let me pose a question. When has government ever been responsible for, or effective at, creating private sector productive jobs? Government, ie; that Leviathan of lumbering bureaucratic sloth that produces nothing of tangible concrete value and can only produces bureaucratic government jobs.

Think about the above for a moment... Regardless of which political buffoon has the mike the truth is the truth.

  1. a question:
    then why do we reward Presidents when jobs are good and he has to take blame when jobs are scarce as if he is responsiblle for it?

  2. Axelrod and Rove, what a set of loser bookends those 2 are, huh? My God, they're almost as bad a set as Pelosi and Boehner.

  3. Thanks to 100 years of progressive public schools, we no longer have an accurate conception of government. FDR put us on "war footing" back in the 1930's, and we've been on the long march ever since.

  4. "When has government ever been responsible for, or effective at, creating private sector productive jobs?"

    The GI Bill

    The Interstate Highways

    The Railroads

    The WPA

    Education, Research and Development

    The government itself

    The military

    etc, etc, etc...

    Shall I go on???


  5. JMJ,

    Somehow I never thought of the WPA, Government itself, Military as "private sector productive jobs" but I am not as astute as you.

    The all for themselves president and congress have a huge ability to stop or transfer job growth. They give millions to "clean energy" companies so they can make campaign contributions just prior to filing bankruptcy. They send Billions to Brazil to expand their oil exploration and go after US oil companies as being greedy.

    The one thing that will spur growth is a comprehensive tax reform yet no party will attack that chore because if they went with a sensible consumption, Fair, simplified tax system they would lose the power to punish.
    BHO doesn't like the oil companies so he will raise their taxes.
    Against coal so increase taxes on them.
    Against small business so increase taxes
