Republican Poster Child

06 Oct

Forrest Gump’s “Stupid is as stupid does” has a suitable poster child: The Republican Party.  All because of their asinine comments regarding the jobs report showing unemployment falling to 7.8 percent with 114,000 new jobs.  The folly started when former General Electric executive Jack Welsh tweeted: “Unbelievable jobs numbers…these Chicago guys will do anything…can’t debate so change numbers.”  Predictably, Allen “I see 81 commies” West agreed with Welsh’s remarks.  Donald Rumsfeld’s former chief of staff and Rush chimed in their own version of election year politics nonsense.  Typical of Rush Limbaugh, he made his comment before knowing the issue by, asking, “Do they take us for fools?” said, “Now, what is this? BLS.”

Still, the poster child of “Stupid is as stupid does” is non-other than Washington Examiner Conn Carroll:  Clever Carroll tweeted “I Don’t think that the BLS cooked the numbers.”  Because “I think a bunch of Dems lied about getting jobs. That would have same effect.”  Astute Carroll further tweeted “Would love to see the partisan breakdown of the 873,000 Americans who say they got new jobs.” Carroll and his cronies simply cannot explain how and why would more than half a million Democrats lie and say that they have found jobs without Republicans, or anyone else knowing about these many lies?

I suggest that republicans follow the advice of one of their memorable cronies who said, “Be precise. A lack of precision is dangerous when the margin of error is small.” Donald Rumsfeld.
