The latest from RNC Chair Michael Steele: “Not in the history of mankind has thegovernment ever created a job.”
This is such transparent nonsense it’s hard to know where to start; but I guess it builds on the DeMint nonsense. Has Steele ever heard of government road building? Defense spending? NASA? We don’t even need to get into the many ways that government spending on many things has spin-off effects in terms of heightened economic productivity either because of technological innovation or transportation efficiencies, or whatever. How we doing on the spending on research and initial deployment that created the Internet?
Actually, he is what the GOP wants: the party of out of touch whackos like Sarah Palin.
