You too can be as smart as a Nobel Prize winner

When evaluating Obama’s statements regarding the economy, Nobel Prize Winning Economist and Self-Professed Smarter Than Everyone Else Liberal Hack Dr. Paul Krugman said in his New York Times blog, “[J]ob growth since ObamaCare went into full effect has been the fastest since the 1990s.”  To that I have to ask a stupid question: what does job growth have to do with the ACA?  I don’t remember it being sold as a job creator.  And what happened prior to your cherry-picked starting date of 1990?

Sure, opponents of Obamacare predicted job losses as a result, but who’s to say those losses didn’t happen?  The BLS figures Dr. K surely draws on when backing up his statement include millions of jobs of all kinds and durations boiled down into a simple sludge of a number.  Maybe without Obamacare those jobs would have been high-paying, more numerous, benefits-rich jobs like what we saw during Reagan’s recovery prior to 1990, instead of low-paying, part-time gigs.  Since shortly before Obamacare passed until today, average wages for that sludge stew of jobs numbers have increased by 3%.  Not three percent per year like normal inflation.  Three percent since 2009.

Even a nobody like me can make smart statements like a Nobel Prize winner.  Just because two things happen at the same time doesn’t mean they have anything to do with each other.

If that were all that was needed to make a point, I would like to go on record saying, “Gun sales in the U.S. since Obamacare went into full effect have been the fastest since the 1990s.”

So there you have it, New York Times.  Sign me up.  Like Obamacare and jobs, Obamacare and guns have no correlation regardless of how many Nobel Prizes one possesses, but it sure sounds smart.

Let’s compare the jobs growth to something a little more inconvenient for an Obama-worshiping economist.  Two things that have a direct correlation.  Since the Republicans forced the reduction of unemployment giveaways from 99 weeks back to 26 weeks, people have been jumping back into the workforce, taking any jobs they can get.

So here you go.  Another flash of Nobel Prize-worthy brilliance: “[J]ob growth since Republicans reduced unemployment benefit payment terms has been the fastest since the 1990s.”

We won’t hear any liberals making that statement, let alone Krugman.

We shouldn’t be getting too excited about those jobs, and we shouldn’t be trying to tag them to Obamacare in a positive way that only a Super-Smart Nobel Prize Winning Liberal Economist hack can.  After all, if that were all it took, you too could be as smart as a Nobel Prize winner.
