Outsourcer in Chief

With little in accomplishments to point to, President Obama has decided to portray Mitt Romney as someone who has gutted companies and sent jobs overseas.  Look in the mirror, Mr. President.

On Sunday, at 8:40 am local time, NASA astronaut, Sunita Williams, a native American, blasted off into space for a Tuesday hook-up with the International Space Station.  Local time, that is, if you live in Kazakhstan, Russia.

We don’t send our astronauts into space anymore, Russia does…if we pay Russia $56 million per astronaut.  That figure will rise to $63 million in 2014.

Meanwhile, some 7400 NASA employees lost their jobs when President Obama virtually killed our space program.  Slightly more than half of those employees have found jobs.  I guess the rest of those jobs are now being done by Russians.

Remember the administration’s Gulf of Mexico moratorium on deep water oil drilling?

As of September, 2011, 11 rigs had left the Gulf.  Each rig employs about 100 workers, plus, of course, the land based employees who service the rigs and process the oil.

Where did the rigs go?

To Brazil, Egypt and Africa.

Outsourcing, Mr. President?

And then, of course, we have the harshest corporate tax laws in the world, which our President steadfastly refuses to change…after all, corporations are “rich”.  How many jobs are lost to other countries as a result of that?

Ironic, isn’t it, that our President always accuses someone else of doing exactly what he is doing.  It’s bad if someone else does it, but perfectly acceptable if he does it.

    Isn’t he the ultimate outsourcer by making tax policy that simply drives business to seek more favorable tax climates??? Look at those recent rich people that have renounced their American citizenship to escape the IRS.
    Also, the Dems continue to deliberately confuse outsourcing with offshoring (http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/post/romney-response-to-bain-story-outsourcing-vs-offshoring/2012/06/22/gJQAMWVXvV_blog.html).
    Just more of the big lie.? You can smell the stink of their desperation.

    Thanks for the links. My frustration is that the jackal, state-controlled media glosses past the terms offshoring or outsourcing. The distinction doesn’t register with the American people. (“Jobs are gone, Romney did it”) Believe it, most Americans aren’t that sharp. They are beaten down by parking their obese butts in from of the TV and watching endless commercials with a dab of “entertainment content”, liberal opinionated “news” and precious little information. We may know the difference, understand that difference, but those terms are the same to many people. Hey, they still think Obama is getting them free health care!
    The Republicans are being beaten to the punch all of the time. When they do land a solid hit on Obama, the complicit media barely reports it, perseverates on Bain, Romney being a Mormon, rushes to report Obama’s latest vote pandering ploy or headlines something that makes O-man look presidential. Romney doesn’t get any respect.
    It’s almost like the Republicans are speaking a different language than what the American public understands, a language that is not being translated to them successfully.

      Lucky for us that most of the “dull knives in the drawer” are already Democrats, and believers in the big l?ser.?
      Time to turn the heat on the complicit media: go on the offensive like the Swiftboat veterans did to overcome the media blackballing (can I still say that? 😉 ) at the height of the 2006 election.? Then CAN be overcome, but you need to shout loud enough.

      Hardly as nuanced as “I won’t raise the taxes of anyone making less than $250K on thin dime”, or “investment” vs. payoffs to campaign contributors.
      I wonder why ?bama never talks about all the Bain successes?? Or that Bain will make more money from a company that succeeds vs. one they have to let go bankrupt after trying to save it.?? Or the very “nuanced” difference between what Bain does/did and what ?bama did with GM and Chrysler (the nuanced difference between capitalism and statism).? Or the fact that, through ?bama’s actions, the economy is in the hopper?

    I think JBS is right: “It?s almost like the Republicans are speaking a different language than what the American public understands”.

      Dimsdale says:

      In context, JBS was making the point that the media doesn’t report what they say, and that the public doesn’t receive the message, not that they are speaking a different language, but that they might as well be doing so.

      Maybe the public is getting wise to the clear partisanship of the media, judging by the precipitous drop off in readership and trust they are experiencing.
      Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch.

    I wonder of Obama and the democrat party are happily keeping the campaign donations received from Bain?? Oh, yes…I do believe they are!

    Does anyone know the truth to the rumor that a Spanish company – with ties to Soros – has been hired to “count” the ballots in the Presidential election???? I did hear something about it but since then, nothing.? This would be the ideal time to discuss the “outsourcing” of our democracy!
