The Republicans' Employment Paradox

Michelle Goldberg (left), senior contributing writer at The Nation, defines the Republicans' contradictory beliefs regarding employment:

It seems that to be a contemporary Republican, one must simultaneously believe two things: that Obama has immiserated the country and driven unemployment to intolerable levels, and that the poor have it easy and there are plenty of jobs out there for the taking. When the tension between these two beliefs gets to be too great, Republicans will usually tilt toward the latter.
