Obama’s chutzpah [Darleen Click]
The usual campaign blather from The One’s weekly address
President Obama says that while technology and outsourcing have eroded the traditional American manufacturing base, innovation and skill will position the country to compete in the future.
“Jobs that provided a decent living have been shipped overseas. And the hard truth is that a lot of those jobs aren’t coming back,” Obama said in his weekly address, released Saturday. “But that doesn’t mean we have to settle for a lesser future. I don’t accept that idea. In America, there’s always something we can do to create new jobs and new manufacturing and new security for the middle-class. In America, we don’t give up, we get up.” [...]
he president reiterated a call he made Friday in a speech to plant workers, in which he encouraged Congress to reform the tax code to raise taxes on multinational corporations who ship jobs overseas – and reward companies who open factories domestically.
“No company should get a tax break for outsourcing jobs. Instead, tax breaks should go to manufacturers who set up shop here at home. Bigger tax breaks should go to high-tech manufacturers who create the jobs of the future. And if you relocate your company to a struggling community, you should get help financing that new plant, that new equipment, or training for new workers. It’s time to stop rewarding businesses that ship jobs overseas, and start rewarding businesses that create jobs here in America,” Obama said.
Now, here’s the part of the arrogance that is the trademark of our Barry …
The president recorded the message after touring the Boeing airplane manufacturing plant in Everett, Washington …
Boeing .. the company Obama’s NLRB had been persecuting not because they tried to take jobs overseas, but because they were trying to create jobs in South Carolina. Now that the NRLB “withdrew” it’s complaint (after the union thugs got their pound of flesh from Boeing), Obama does a cynical victory lap in the Boeing plant just to let everyone, again, know just who is really in charge.
Don Vito Corleone would be proud.
