Hillary Clinton would kinda-sorta like to amend her comments about businesses and jobs

posted at 9:31 pm on October 27, 2014 by Mary Katharine Ham

Did someone get a 3 a.m. phone call from Goldman Sachs? After her comments this week at a rally for Martha Coakley (whose campaign is touting an internal poll in which she’s down 2!) got her in some “you didn’t build that” trouble, she sought to clarify in New York:

SOMERS, N.Y. — When Hillary Clinton fumbled a line at a rally last Friday — “Don’t let anybody tell you that corporations and businesses create jobs” — the comment caused a minor outrage among political observers. Republicans said she’d been pandering to liberals. Democrats wondered if she’d been trying too hard to channel Elizabeth Warren, the populist senator who also spoke at the event.

On Monday, Clinton went out of her way to correct the comment at a rally for Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, the Democrat up for reelection in this Hudson Valley district.

Clinton said in her speech that corporations that outsource jobs or move profits overseas should not be granted tax breaks. The clarification made clear that the remark was a botched line — not new messaging from Clinton, who has honed a new stump speech during a series of rallies ahead the election next month.

“The Republican alternative is a discredited economic theory that will hurt middle class families,” Clinton said. “So-called trickle-down economics has failed.”

“I short-handed this point the other day, so let me be absolutely clear about what I’ve been saying for a couple of decades.”

“Our economy grows when businesses and entrepreneurs create good-paying jobs here in America and workers and families are empowered to build from the bottom up and the middle out — not when we hand out tax breaks for corporations that outsource jobs or stash their profits overseas.”

An unnamed Clinton aide said this is the context that justifies her original remarks. And she has moved on to somewhat less populist rhetoric on the trail this week. The lede on the Politico piece is chuckle-worthy. Is this self-awareness about politics and the silliness of covering it or just a Kinsleyan gaffe?

Hillary Clinton on Monday mopped up her botched statement from a rally in Massachusetts last week, making it clear she’d misspoken and hadn’t intended to deliver a fresh economic policy message.

Clinton’s cleanup came as she campaigned with Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney in Somers, about 90 minutes north of New York City, after two days in which Republicans bandied the likely White House candidate’s Friday comment, made in the context of talking about trickle-down economics, on social media and the single sentence began gaining traction…

A Clinton aide later said the former secretary of state had meant to talk about tax breaks for corporations and businesses in that sentence, which led into a line about how trickle-down economics had “failed spectacularly” — a sentiment she has long held. The overall context was clear that she had left words out of a sentence; the comment made little sense without it.

Some Democrats worry she’s trying a little too hard to fly that Warren freak flag for progressives, and liable to trip herself up again:

But some Democrats who back Clinton said privately she appeared to be trying too hard to capture the Warren rhetoric and adjust to the modern economic progressive language — much in the way President Barack Obama did during a campaign rally in 2012, when, discussing businesses’ relationships to the infrastructure of cities, he said, “You didn’t build that.”

And it highlighted a problem that has plagued Clinton in the past: overshooting in her language when she is outside her immediate comfort zone.

Brit Hume and John Harwood argued today over the import of her comments, with Harwood in mop-up mode along with Politico.

Her words were clear, and she has motive to go all Warren.

Charles Krauthammer on “Special Report” with a reminder that she’s just not that good at this:

“Well, sort of the guru of this kind of argument is Elizabeth Warren who is very articulate in saying that the government is instrumental, society is instrumental in creating success and jobs and a successful economy. And not so much entrepreneurs or individuals. she is — Remember there was an attempt to recapitulate this Obama made in 2008— If you built it, if you have success, it’s not you. He botched it and now she got it worse. Hers was like a D on a scale of D to A. She was trying to take a stab at this idea that government, that it’s not sort of individual capitalism and corporations is evil corporations but it had no elaboration and it is going to haunt her… Chuck had it exactly right it will be shown over and over again. it does show you how much the Democrats overestimate her skill as a politician.”

Give me a break. She didn’t “fumble” the line, she said what she intended to, to pander to her audience, and is probably stunned that she’s getting flack for it.

“Short-handed the point?” More inept erudition from the mistress of the form.

She’s an Alinskyite leftist. Literally, considering she knew him.

She believes that government is the beginning and end of all things.

Her definition of a viable industry is one that has been nationalized. (See “Hillarycare” aka “Obamacare- The Prequel”.)

She had a Freudian slip like Uterus, and actually said out loud what she believes and will enforce as POTUS.

Own it, Ms. Hillary!.

One view actually conforms to reality, Governments do not produce tangible products, which is where wealth is actually created, thery tax their citizens as much as they can get away with, and reward those who politically support them.

This is absolute BS:

A Clinton aide later said the former secretary of state had meant to talk about tax breaks for corporations and businesses in that sentence, which led into a line about how trickle-down economics had “failed spectacularly” — a sentiment she has long held. The overall context was clear that she had left words out of a sentence; the comment made little sense without it.

The most compelling explanation for Hillary’s command to the voting public – “Don’t let anybody tell you that corporations and businesses create jobs” – is her actual thoughts about the matter.

It is simple – the main argument for tax cuts is that businesses will use that extra money to create jobs. So, Hillary is setting out her response to that – dont let anyone tell you businesses create jobs as its false and doesn’t work as a justification for tax cuts. It is obvious when a person of an IQ over 100 thinks about the facts and the statements, including today’s spin version.

If the GOP has even a tiny amount of balls, they will make Hillary eat this comment for the next two years. Refuse to accept the three days later lie counterspin, repeat the above a 1000 times and label Hillary as an continuation of far left Obama economic policy.

Anti-Harkonnen Freedom Fighter on October 27, 2014 at 9:58 PM

Her words were clear, and she has motive to go all Warren.

You’re being unfair to Warren. Warren has been much more articulate than either Obama or Clinton on this.

There is nobody in this country who got rich on their own. Nobody. You built a factory out there – good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory… Now look. You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea – God bless! Keep a hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along

Compare that to “businesses don’t create jobs” or “you didn’t build that,” and Warren is a font of coherent thought.

I like how she got a child rapist off the hook by smearing the victim, then laughed about it ten years later.

John the Libertarian on October 27, 2014 at 10:01 PM

The government only steals our money.
They tax the hell out of business and the people that work at that business to get the money to build the friggin road….
Then the government takes more money to hire the cops and firefighters.
Clinton & Warren act as if they are the fairy god mothers handing out money that grew on trees…..

That is why I would rather the government get out of the business of building infrastructure.

Government – yes you stole that.

redguy on October 27, 2014 at 10:02 PM

Anyone who says “let me be clear” or one of it’s variations is guaranteed, 100% without a doubt lying right to your face. All in a veiled attempt to cover up for previous lie, or in this case, a tiny sliver of truth that she didn’t want to eek out.

She regrets that some of her inner Marx leaked out for everyone to get a whiff of. That’s all, nothing more complicated than that.

That, and the fact she’s a lying, scheming, radical leftist, just like Obola and his minions.

Say Boinking Whats:

Minimimum Wage, and “Trickle Up Economics”:
=========================================

— When Hillary Clinton fumbled a line at a rally last Friday — “Don’t let anybody tell you that corporations and businesses create jobs”
============

Hillary Clinton: Bill Clinton Created Jobs. Businesses Don’t Create Jobs.
“That’s quite unlikely, and the evidence doesn’t support that…”
October 27, 2014
******************

At a rally for Massachusetts Democratic gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley in Boston Friday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

argued that corporations and businesses don’t create any jobs, and the minimum wage has.

“Don’t let anybody tell you that raising the minimum wage will kill jobs. They always say that. I’ve been through this. My husband gave working families a raise in the 1990s. I voted to raise the minimum wage, and guess what? Millions of jobs were created or paid better, and more families were more secure. That’s what we wanna see here, and that’s what we wanna see across the country.

“And don’t let anybody tell you that, you know, it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs. You know, that old theory–trickle-down economics. That has been tried, that has failed. It has failed rather spectacularly.”

If she had a drop of cunning and cleverness she could have ‘clarified’ her goofy gaffe thusly:

What I meant to say was that Need creates jobs, not businesses. Businesses just fill those Needs. By hiring people. But without the Needs, there would be no jobs, and no businesses. Some Needs can only be filled by government because businesses are not interested in them, since there is no immediate profit to be gained. I am for helping people, not just profit! Unlike my Republican opponents.” Etc., etc. (Boilerplate slander, race-baiting, ad nauseam.)

We taxed the living hell out of you to provide you with all of that whether you want it or not, dammit. We need to separate you from your property at every opportunity. We tax you at the gas pump, property taxes, car tags, boat tags, driver license fees, beautician fees, fishing license fees, hunting license fees, sales taxes, and permit fees galore. You see government has gotten pretty good at this seizing your property gig. And when you die we tax the stuff we already taxed. Damn were good! And you just suck it up butter cups. Good news though there is no tax for you to vote which is not guaranteed by the constitution. However, if you want to exercise your 2nd amendment constitutional right to bear arms you will have to be fingerprinted and pay a fee for a carry concealed permit in most states every several years.

If the silly stupid partisan slut had been saying it for a couple decades, it would have already been made clear.

But more importantly, “let me be absolutely clear about what I’ve been saying” is akin to stepping down to spend more time with the family. Meaningless spin when a politician gets caught with more candor than is advisable.

Happy Nomad on October 27, 2014 at 10:41 PM

I’ve been noticing an increasing frequency of late in which politicians, especially democrats, say something incredibly stupid, and then when caught they assert they actually meant the complete opposite of what they said. It’s not credible. It’s what happens when you focus-test every policy statement, and the policies themselves become commoditized abstractions, without any real content and not having any personal commitment attached to them.

It has worked very well for the Clinton’s. Marc Rich funneled direct bribes to the Clinton’s and got a full pardon. James Riady brought direct bribes to both the Clinton’s and the D.N.C. of totally illegal foreign campaign-contributions. In order to get access to American missile-guidance systems the Chinese funneled in some illegal “funny foreign money !
And we must not forget the $186,000 dollars the Clinton’s had to pay back to the federal government for the furniture and other property they stole out of the White House ! Don’t tell me “trickle down economics” has never worked ! It is the ONLY code the Clinton’s have ever lived by !

That was the most convoluted spin I have ever heard and that’s saying a lot after 6 years of Obama. Perhaps she has evolved on her economic philosophy. Is she saying that it is ok to be a big, stinking, POS corporation as long as it is in the US? I don’t get it.

If she is willing to walk-back this stuff, then she is prepared to do that to any other D opponent or prospective opponent.

Yet what she said and the walk-back will haunt her from now on.

And she still just might take the money and not run, leaving the D party high and dry, with scorched earth all around it.

A corporation or business is a community of people legally organized to create a product or service other people want or need. Investors are those people that believe in the creation for growth and value and support the effort for a return.

Government did not build that.

One view actually conforms to reality, Governments do not produce tangible products, which is where wealth is actually created, thery tax their citizens as much as they can get away with, and reward those who politically support them.

A corporation or business is a community of people legally organized to create a product or service other people want or need. Investors are those people that believe in the creation for growth and value and support the effort for a return.

Government did not build that.
