Skinny Dicky Blumenthal Knows Nothing About How to Create Jobs

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: I want to go to the debate that happened a couple of nights ago, Linda McMahon versus Richard Blumenthal in Connecticut. I had these sound bites yesterday but I didn't get to them and for that I apologize. I shoulda played them for you yesterday, but we have them. We have three of them and the really priceless ones are when Blumenthal tries to describe how he would create jobs. He hasn't a clue. But before that, I want you to hear the TV ad Linda McMahon ran against Blumenthal on his continual lying about his service in Vietnam.

MCMAHON: I'm Linda McMahon, and I approved this message.

ANNOUNCER: Would you lie about serving in a war?

BLUMENTHAL: We have learned something very important since the days that I served in Vietnam.

ANNOUNCER: Dick Blumenthal did again and again.

BLUMENTHAL: When we returned, we sought nothing of this gratitude.

ANNOUNCER: He covered one lie with another.

BLUMENTHAL: Since the days that I served in Vietnam.

ANNOUNCER: If he lied about Vietnam, what else is he lying about?

RUSH: That's a good question. But there's a better question: is he all there? He continues to lie in the face of everybody knowing he's lying. "When I served in Vietnam." I mean, this is pathological. I also, just myself, I don't trust anybody this skinny, I just don't. I don't trust anybody that looks like they need to eat. That jaw line, the neck is too scrawny, I think, what do these people do in their off time, what do they do? It's not normal, folks. Blumenthal looks like he might have dabbled in witchcraft for all I know. But I just don't trust these guys that look like they never eat. They look like they sip cocktails at four in the afternoon but never eat anything. (interruption) What was that? Somebody is clearing their throat at me. No, H.R., you don't look like you need to eat. Besides, I've seen you eat. But somebody that fastidious, somebody that obsessed with their appearance, I don't know. That's just me.

Anyway, we move on. Monday night in Hartford, Linda McMahon is debating Richard Blumenthal, the attorney general in Connecticut. During the debate, Linda McMahon said, "You've talked about you want to incentivize small businesses. Tell me something. How do you create a job?" Now, listen to this.

BLUMENTHAL: A job is created and it can be in a variety of ways, by a variety of people but principally by people and businesses in response to demand for products and services, and the main point about jobs in Connecticut is we can and we should create more of them by creative policies, and that's the kind of approach that I want to bring to Washington.

RUSH: This is just --

BLUMENTHAL: I have stood up for jobs when they've been at stake. I know about how government can help preserve jobs, and I want programs that provide more capital for small businesses, better tax policies that will promote creation of jobs, stronger intervention by government to make sure that we use the made-in-America policies and buy-America policies to keep jobs here rather than buying products that are manufactured overseas as WWE has done.

RUSH: Folks, that's verbal diarrhea. I mean, you just want to say, "Here, take a laxative." The only way he's polling at all is because of Democrat loyalty to the party. I mean, it's a disservice to mumbo jumbo to describe that as mumbo jumbo. I want you to listen to this again. The simple question was, "How do you create a job?" I'm great with words, and describing this is proving elusive to me. Here it is again.

BLUMENTHAL: A job is created and it can be in a variety of ways, by a variety of people but principally by people and businesses in response to demand for products and services, and the main point about jobs in Connecticut is we can and we should create more of them by creative policies, and that's the kind of approach that I want to bring to Washington.

RUSH: Stop the tape. Okay, so you spout a bunch of nonsense, I mean literally gobbledygook. You talk about wandering aimlessly in search of a thought, this is a bunch of meaningless syllables put together in ways that happen to make words but nothing else. And then you follow that by saying, "And that's the kind of approach that I want to bring to Washington." Exactly. Baseless, specious, stupid, empty, vacuous, vapid, hollow, invisible. He said the word "jobs" a lot, but I don't even know, does he think he has one? Anyway, here's the rest of the bite again.

BLUMENTHAL: I have stood up for jobs when they've been at stake.

RUSH: Stop the tape. I can't sit idly by here as this guy talks. 'I have stood up for jobs when they've been at stake"? What in the hell does that mean? I stood up for jobs. You mean, okay, when you stand up for jobs do you support jobs? That's a policy? You stand up for jobs when they've been at stake. When they're not at stake you don't stand up for 'em? If this were true, this guy would have to be opposing Obama because jobs are at stake because of Obama and he's not standing up for jobs. That's the way I hear it. Jobs are at stake, Obama's destroying them and this guy says he stands up for jobs when they're at stake, but he's not. Does he open doors for jobs? Does he take off his hat for jobs? Will he give a seat on the bus for a job? I mean this is the way he's talking about jobs.

BLUMENTHAL: I know about how government can help preserve jobs, and I want programs that provide more capital for small businesses, better tax policies that will promote creation of jobs, stronger intervention by government to make sure that we use the made-in-America policies and buy-America policies to keep jobs here rather than buying products that are manufactured overseas as WWE has done.

RUSH: I wonder how many products this guy has in his house or his car that were made overseas. I know, the government's gonna intervene, the government's going to intervene. Here's what Linda McMahon said.

McMAHON: Government, government, government. Government does not create jobs. It's very simple how you create jobs. An entrepreneur takes a risk. He or she believes that he creates a good or service that is sold for more than it costs to make it. And if an entrepreneur thinks he can do that, he creates a job.

RUSH: Okay, that's it. I mean that's... (sigh) I know, I know, but gosh, I'm being a little harsh on poor old Dickie. Expecting a Democrat to know anything about jobs is asking a lot, I know, but still, he could do better than that.
