The problem is that liberals/dems do not have the financial/economic knowledge and experience to get the country back on its feet... and the conservative/GOP, many of them with personal business experience and know how have been hijacked by the "tea party" (Liberal acting GOPs) who will complain and moan about spending (their basic purpose of existence), and not focus on fixing the problem (typical liberal tactic to play victim and make no suggestion on progress)...
So what the country really needs in the experience and intelligence of experienced conservatives to help with the economy... But I disagree with the article as putting inexperienced "new blood" has actually helped with the emotional rallying of voters.. So I doubt a focus of how to fix the problem would help with voters...
Teaparty minions believe that playing the victim and combating spending/unions are the issue that will help the country... When I think the intelligent minds of real conservatives know that this is not the path to making things better, only to emotionally sway voters...http://www.opednews.com/populum/linkrss.php?f=GOP-comes-up-with-a-jobs-p-in-Daily-Kos-110318-127.html
"National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn said there
was concern that Republicans weren’t emphasizing the jobs issue in
their rhetoric. “People tend to get focused on cuts and
spending, but really the ultimate goal is to encourage the private
sector to invest and create new jobs.”
“That’s part of what we need to do,” the Texas Republican told POLITICO.
When asked if the GOP needs to be talking more about jobs rather than purely cutting spending, Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) replied Thursday: “Absolutely.”
“We have to remind folks about the dire situation that we’re in with
the amount of spending that we’ve been engaged in,” he said. “But it’s
absolutely correct that there’s a direct connection between that and job
creation, and we do need to talk about that as much as we can.”
“The best way for us to make our point is for all 47 of us to go out in all of our speeches and talk about it, so you’ll hear us talking about No. 1 jobs, No. 2 debt,” said Senate Republican Conference Chairman Lamar Alexander, the GOP’s point man on the message."Here's an idea: instead of dreaming up new ways to talk about their
support for job creation, maybe Republicans could actually come up with a
plan to that would actually create jobs.
For example, they could sit down with Democrats and work out a
bipartisan plan to rebuild our aging infrastructure. They could work
with the White House to develop an approach to move forward on
developing and deploying the energy technology to sustainably fuel our
economy. Better yet, they could do both.
Doing those kinds of things would put the country back to work while
making critical investments in our future. But Republicans have no
interest absolutely no interest in doing anything constructive like
that, because ultimately, no matter how much hot air they spew, they
really are on ideological mission.
