Full of flubs: A look back at Corbett's top slipups
THIS CERTAINLY isn't the first time Gov. Corbett had talked his way into a political mess. And it probably won't be the last.
While running for governor in 2010, Corbett said the state's unemployment rate was not coming down because people didn't want to go back to work.
"People don't want to come back to work while they still have unemployment. The jobs are there, but if we keep extending unemployment the people are going to sit there."
In May, Corbett rolled his eyes in an interview when asked about lagging job growth in the state and then suggested the problem was applicants who could not pass employee drug tests.
"There are many employers that say: We're looking for people, but we can't find anybody that has passed a drug test."
Later that month, Corbett told an interviewer from Al Dia - in front of a Union League audience - that he didn't have any Latinos in his administration.
"If you can find us one, please let me know."
