Reinvented RNC Candidate Blackwell Warns Creating Jobs will hurt Their Election Chances

The title says it all. Actually, I’ve been saying this for awhile. As long as government in crippled and people are hurting, Republicans swoop in with business tax cuts and smaller government rhetoric. Disaster capitalism if you will. You would think after the last two elections that perhaps, and I’m just guessing here, that there just might be something wrong with the party platform or real world governing style. The realization that Republicans are just carnival barkers selling you tickets to watch their smoke and mirrors show, is no longer debatable.

Thank you for former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell writing a column asking congressional Republicans to reject the reinvestment and recovery stimulus plan, so the Democrats and Pres. Obama don’t actually create jobs. Read it for yourself, Blackwell is unashamed to say it:

While only a few details are known, one overlooked issue is that it could create a major electoral advantage for Democrats at taxpayer expense. That would be unacceptable for what is being touted as a nonpartisan measure, and gives Republicans yet another reason to oppose …. In 2008, Virginia went Democrat for the first time since 1964, and Mr. Obama won it by 130,000 votes. Creating 600,000 new jobs might help cement Virginia in the Democrat column, making it harder for Republicans to retake the White House.

What’s not to like about the new and wiser Republican Party. They know how to run for government office, they just don’t know how to run government.

Want more proof the GOP is nothing but marketing, branding? Here’s a small segment of the Daily Shows Sam Bee getting a familiar right winger to admit there is no conservative substance, just a chocolate coating.
