Oh My: Debbie Wasserman Schultz Becomes Right-Wing Libertarian on Economics

Oh she's a genius.

I realize that there's a lot of semantic arguing over whether a president "creates jobs." Whenever I say that, I get corrected. Okay: The president is supposed to foster a favorable environment in which private actors may create jobs.

But the Democrats really do believe politicians -- at least Democratic ones -- actually create jobs.

But not anymore. Because, in order to deflect away from the Democrats' atrocious record on job creation, now asserts that the public does not vote for presidents or politicians to create jobs.

Nope. Her claim is that politicians are put into office to "work together."

So that's where the DNC head's spin is at now: Unable to actually do anything of positive substance, she endeavors to shift the debate to "at least we're willing to compromise and work together," which is a strictly proceduralist concern (who gives a fig if politicians are fighting if things are going well?) and furthermore, of course, is entirely untrue to begin with.

"First of all, Eric, I won."

More: Jammie Wearing Fool finds more. This may not just be an idiot's warbling; it might be the coordinated warbling of many idiots.

Because (same link) he finds Michelle Obama making the same damn claim:

First lady Michelle Obama addressed a DNC fundraiser at a private residence in D.C. Tuesday night, emphasizing the importance of working together during difficult economic times.
