Correct, sir!

Charles Krauthammer nails one of my biggest pet peeves in this week's Time. Everybody repeat after me: The President does not create jobs. Industry creates jobs.

If I had a nickel for every time I was only just barely able to restrain myself from grabbing whatever large, sturdy object was handy and bashing in the skull of some poor unfortunate who said "The X Administraton created Y new jobs", I'd be able to pay for real therapy for my anger issues instead of just self-medicating with bourbon and Scotch.

Or, more realistically, in addition to self-medicating with bourbon and Scotch.
