If I had a dollar for every time a Republican said 'job creators,' I'd be one of the '1%.'

That is because we have a job killing president.

You mean the President with 25 straight months of job growth?

But never let facts get in the way of ideology, right?
 
2012-04-26 09:17:41 AM
But the liberal media!

Aside from a very few exceptions, American media is pro corporate first and foremost and thus bent towards conservative ideology.

The notion of a liberal media is laughable.

Understandably a lot of people get confused by the addition of FOX News to the news landscape which is literally the propaganda arm of the GOP and not actual news per se.

You mean like those pesky bank killing regulations that they removed that lead to the global crash of 2008?

Ask people to point out these "job-killing regulations" and you'll get a "well...you KNOW they're out there..." kind of excuse.
 
2012-04-26 09:34:21 AM
Well, you can't blame them; the number of Democrats in the White House has increased by ∞% in the same time frame.
 
2012-04-26 09:34:52 AM
and what was the percentage increase in the use of "Hope and Change" during that same period?
 
2012-04-26 09:35:12 AM
It's a page straight from the ALEC playbook.

The newspapers themselves, apart from editorials, are just quoting the swath of Republican pansies who cry it out like it's their mom's name during sex.
 
2012-04-26 09:35:21 AM
Republicans control the narrative by constantly using hyperbole and the media reports it as legitimate arguments.

I actually kinda think it's the other way around; the GOP is the political arm of FOX News, since FOX can create or destroy any Republican politician any time they want.
 
2012-04-26 09:36:16 AM
I wonder how many times the phrase was used outside of direct quotations. Seems like such a hyperbolic term I wouldn't expect anyone but Fox or GOP lackeys to use it.

If environmental regulations were more strict, BillCo wouldn't be suffering from all of those birth defects.

Then again, environmental regulations wouldn't have done a thing about his mom's meth habit while she was pregnant.
 
2012-04-26 09:41:10 AM
I'd imagine we have this ugly jerkoff to thank. Some focus group somewhere in bumfarked Kansas got all excited when ol Luntzy said the words "job killing regulations" and here we are.

Wow I really missed that one. I have been busy with a research class that has taken a majority of my time, so I have only recently been reading on here again.

Naw, Ailes still considers himself a good little apparatchik of the GOP not the tail that wags the dog.

*click*

A new study reveals that the press covered Romney twice as favorably as Obama during the primaries...

Ah, missed that one from TDB, TY for link. The Myth of liberal media exposed.

It's this paper stuff I find in the stall sometimes that has words on it.
 
2012-04-26 09:45:46 AM
You never actually see what these job killing regulations are...It's just a generic statement that we should accept at face value.

I'd say it was idiotic to see people actually start railing on the EPA, minimum wage laws, and child labor laws....but it's only a matter of time before those nuts show up.

Since you asked:

This case was about a week after the EPA got biatchslapped by the US Supreme Court in the Sackett case. Right now, the courts are doing a good job at keeping the EPA somewhat in line.

If the US treasury had a dollar for every time the GOP said "job creators" and told us we should lick the shoes of the wealthy for all the good they do, we'd have no debt and no deficit.

Hey, remember back in 2000 when Bush was elected and us liberals bashed him for that stupid "Real plans for real people" slogan throughout his entire term?

No?

Maybe because we're not idiots, and there was a cornucopia of substantive criticisms to make about his administration.
 
2012-04-26 09:50:19 AM

bulldg4life: I'd say it was idiotic to see people actually start railing on the EPA,


You mean like the US Supreme Court (in a unanimous decision in the Sackett case) and an Democrat-appointed federal judge (see my link above)?

Thank God the noble Job Creators who own coal mines will now have the freedom to dump toxic waste into our streams like the Founders so clearly intended. I myself am heartily sick of clean air and water being forced on the American people.
 
2012-04-26 09:52:25 AM
During the same time, use of the phrases "Blue Dog Democrat," "filibuster-proof," and "artisanal cheese" also increased by 1,654,799.0257%.

All regulations are job killing regulations. Particularly the regulations preventing me from starting an Assasin For Hire business.

I really don't get it. What do these derps think the secret agenda is for supporting regulation like this? Do we all secretly hate jobs? I just like breathing.
 
2012-04-26 09:53:16 AM

About the same as Sarah Palin saying "common-sense conservative solutions" yet never being asked to clarify or elaborate on what these "common-sense conservative solutions" actually are.
 
2012-04-26 09:53:41 AM
Is there such a thing as a regulation that is not "job-killing"? Or is this just a redundancy like "failed" that gets appended automatically to anything pertaining to Democrats?
 
2012-04-26 09:54:11 AM

Any farking moron who makes a statement like this needs to be forced to spend a few months in a city or town that's been polluted by industry.

They still don't have that right. This was a case of the mine having all the required permits and the EPA overstepping their bounds to arbitrarily veto the project.

From a Democratic Senator, "The issue with the Spruce Mine permit has always been basic fairness," he said. "The company received a permit five years ago from the Corps. The EPA participated in that process on the front end but then tried to step in again after the permit was issued and veto it retroactively."

It's a growth industry. Low overhead, high employee turnover.
