While speaking at a rally in Boston for Democrat gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley on Friday, Hillary Clinton actually said businesses and corporations don’t create jobs. You read that right. Clinton, who liberals hail as the most intelligent woman to ever walk the planet, actually made the idiotic claim.
Don’t take my word for it, watch the video, if you can stand to listen to her:
“Don’t let anybody tell you that, um, you know, it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.” Clinton said.
“You know that old theory, ‘trickle-down economics,’” she added. “That has been tried, that has failed. It has failed rather spectacularly.”
Reaction was pretty much what you’d expect:
Nothing – and I mean nothing – pissed me off more than when Obama said I didn't build my business. So congrats, Hillary. Fuck off.

@CuffyMeh Obama has stunning business acumen compared to Hillary Clinton.

@CuffyMeh I so know the feeling…those 60-70 hr weeks, yrs w/o vacations, working nights…according to Obama, that wasn't me doing that.

Of course not. That was the government. The same government that gave us Obamacare, a downgraded credit rating, Fast and Furious, an IRS that targets conservatives, Ebola and terror attack in our streets. And much, much more…
Hillary: "Don't let anyone tell u it's corporations&businesses that create jobs." How then did private sector people get jobs? Who did it???

I think we're going to have to sit down with Hillary and have the conversation about where jobs come from. pic.twitter.com/vZ5dkV1FuB

Too late — she’s already a dyed-in-the-wool Marxist.
Let’s hope she continues to talk like this. If the GOP was smart, it would seize on this and make ads from now till 2016. Trust me, the vast majority of Democrats think this way, and they all need to be defeated in November.
