Don Fenly points out that Presidential Candidate Bill Richardson didn't create as many jobs as he claims. I will go him one better. Bill Richardson didn't create ANY jobs. The hard working people of New Mexico created the jobs and the only contribution of Bill Richardson was to keep government out of the way.
Politicians will shamelessly claim to be able to solve ANY problem. And they will go even further and take credit for anything good and positive that happens while they are in office.
Instead of ratcheting up the humility when they take office, they ratchet up the arrogance.
