Idiotic Talking Point of the Day

I listened to Senator Bob Corker — and others — discuss the new financial regulations this morning. I was astonished to hear the single most moronic talking point evah: “New regulations will hurt job creation.”
You know what really hurts job creation?

The worst recession since the Great Depression, trillions of dollars in taxpayer monies used — unproductively — to bail out irresponsible banks. Oh, and 15 million lost jobs.

THAT hurt job creation, you frickin’ eejit.
