What Do They Think The Job Entails, Part Duh?

The Nevada Senate debate had an item of interest: Sharron Angle to Harry Reid: It’s Not Your Job to Create Jobs

In tonight’s Nevada Senate debate, Republican candidate Sharron Angle hammered Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid over a legislator’s role in generating economic growth. “Once again, Harry Reid: It’s not your job to create jobs,” she said, after moderator Mitch Fox asked both candidates if job creation was part of a Senator’s job description.

“I believe my job is to create the policies that will encourage private sector to do what they do best,” she said.

“That’d be a no,” Fox prompted, pushing for a firm yes or no answer to his question.

Every political ad at every level you have candidates shouting to the world that they should be elected because they have a cunning plan to create jobs, and now you have Sharron Angle saying that politicians shouldn’t be trying to create jobs.

It gives one pause. Does Ms Angle think that businesses will spend some of their $2 trillion in cash on jobs if she offers them chickens, her solution for health care?

Update: My Bad 😳 It was Ms Angle’s opponent in the Republican primary, Ms Lowden, who was the chicken lady. Correction thanks to Badtux, who tracks the West Coast whackoes.

Err, Sharon Angle wasn’t the chicken lady. That was Sue Lowden, the lady she beat in the Republican primary probably because of the chicken thing. On the other hand, until Lowden self-destructed Sharon Angle was widely considered to be too crazy to win a Republican primary. Think about it. Too crazy for Republicans. Uhm.

I wonder if she also suggested that government ought to keep its hands off of people’s Medicare and Social Security?

Mea culpa, Badtux. I corrected the post. It is so hard to keep them separated and remember that they are all crazy in their own way, in addition to their common economic ignorance.
