Obama: Big Gov = recovery!

This from the One's Presser on Friday:

"Where we're seeing weaknesses in our economy have to do with state and local government. Oftentimes, cuts initiated by, you know, governors or mayors who are not getting the kind of help that they have in the past from the federal government," he said. "And so, you know, if Republicans want to be helpful, if they really want to move forward and put people back to work, what they should be thinking about is how do we help state and local governments."

Help them do what exactly? Is the president really saying that in order for America to have a robust economy that we have to have hire more public employees? Seriously? Does he truly believe that there is some hypothetical balance between private sector growth and public? And by extension without the public sector sucking all the capital out of the market that the economy would somehow stall?

Ladies and gentlemen, it is my contention that government, at all levels, is fundamentally designed to impede economic growth not the reverse. There is nowhere that anyone can point to that will show government actually creating wealth. Its only purpose is to regulate business and anytime, for better or worse, by its existence it encumbers wealth creation. I am not passing judgment on the value of the various agencies rather showing that the more government you have the less efficient the wealth creators are.

So I will pay the government to keep someone from coming to my house and kicking down the door and taking my stuff. Needed Yes, a wealth creator No.

The One really stepped in it here wonder how the Sunday morning talking heads will spin it?:

Oh, that's how, they don't.
