    But it's VIDEO of Hillary saying something stupid.

    NATURALLY, it's "out of context, right?

    “Don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses create jobs,” Clinton said.

    “You know that old theory, ‘trickle-down economics,’” she continued. “That has been tried, that has failed. It has failed rather spectacularly.”

    “You know, one of the things my husband says when people say ‘Well, what did you bring to Washington,’ he said, ‘Well, I brought arithmetic,’” Clinton said, which elicited loud laughs from the crowd.

    So, what's she saying?
    Who on earth thinks this woman has any ability to govern a nation. I mean she only made her name on the coat tails of her husband.
    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

      Low information voters.
      The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

        Remember when her primary campaign attacked Obama's inexperience?
        Don't call it a comeback. It's a riposte.

          Yeah, but she excused her husband's own "experience" with "bimbos", because it served her purpose, too.

            Hard to say, unless you can produce the actual context. The immediately following sentence is about trickle-down or supply side economics, so maybe the larger context is tax policy. Maybe she wants to tie tax cuts to domestic job creation (as I would recommend) rather than just assuming that tax cuts will automatically produce more jobs instead of merely greater profits. Or perhaps this is just a typical crowd-pleasing campaign appearance that does not lend itself to any subtlety.

                    Well Republicans are only very slightly better than Democrats. So yeah.

                      Republicans, Democrats...I'm increasingly seeing less of a meaningful difference.

                          I used to believe that, back in 1980, when Republicans said they would appoint Supreme Court justices who would reverse Roe v Wade, pass a constitutional amendment to protect the life of the unborn, etc. After a year or two, it was clear that they were merely lying to get votes.

                            Everyone knows only the government can create jobs. And pay people not to work at them.


                            I think I will go not grow some corn this year and make a bundle.

                              Yeah, I am already not raising pigs and not raising corn not to feed them.

                                I hope the government starts paying me $15/hour to not flip burgers.
