People can't even define them.

A guy who works for a company and earns let's say $200K a year is NOT a job creator.
He's a worker bee for that company.
Then take a small business owner with 1 or 2 employees making $150K a year. He is a job creator but not considered one since he doesn't make $200K.

Everyone is a job creator. A worker bee who spends money buying an iphone is creating jobs for the employee of Apple.

No spending = no iphone purchased = no job for employee.

Not directly. Demand for goods indirectly creates jobs. The actual hiring is done by the company and they are free to hire in whatever country they want.

And there are plenty of jobs being created. The BRIC countries are not only recovering but some of them are booming.

That's true. That also means that it's true when people speak of job creators or of people making 200k per year, they should not be vilified as all a part of "Wall Street" - whatever that means these days anway.

The job creators are the 1%.
The 1% are the wealthy.
The wealthy make $250K a year or more.

Hence that small business owner grossing $150K is not a job creator.

Right. So that middle manager making $200K a year in advertising let's say is a 1%er job creator and part of the evil Wall Street crowd that needs to be taxed to death.
