Much being made of this. Consider the context

It's popping up all over social media. Hillary Clinton saying corporations or businesses don't create jobs.

“Don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses create jobs. You know that old theory, ‘trickle-down economics.’ That has been tried, that has failed," Clinton said.

Stop to recognize the context of where she's saying this.

At a rally in Boston for Martha Coakley, the Democrat running for Massachusetts governor.

It seems Clinton's going out of her way to sound a lot like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

Remember the "You didn't build that" socialist rant Warren gave when running for office?

Strikes me, Clinton's a tad worried Warren may eclipse her popularity among "progressive" northeast voters.  So, Clinton's crafting campaign talk there to sound as much the Democratic socialist as Warren.

My hope is by 2016, Americans are burned out on Democrats spouting short-sighted populist class war rhetoric, and that speeches like these will help derail the presidential bids of both both Clinton and Warren, as well as those of anyone else foolish enough to talk like this.
