John “Cash” Boehner: Too Stupid To Govern?

Boehner: “The government can’t create jobs.”

Boehner: "In the last two years, under President Obama, the federal government has added 200,000 new federal jobs," Boehner said. "If some of those jobs are lost so be it. We’re broke."

Which is it, John?

In the first instance he was simply, stupidly wrong. Obviously the government creates jobs. If it didn’t then the work of government wouldn’t get done and the corporations would get away with killing lots more people than they kill now.

In the second instance Boehner simply lied. The net increase in government jobs since 2002 is twenty thousand, according to the Washington Post and the Office of Management and Budget.

But what can we expect from Boehner, a man whose competency extends only to raising money from his wealthy golfing buddies, who distributed lobbyist cash on the floor of the House, and who cares not a bit about American workers?

Did I mention that the military doesn’t even want the spare engine? However we will recoup that money by slashing budgets for unnecessary programs such as the EPA and FDA! What a stand up guy. Not…
