Interesting to Note: Obama Hypocrisy
“Revolutions in technology have transformed the way we live and the way we work. Businesses and industries can re-locate anywhere in the world, anywhere that there are skilled workers, anywhere that there is an Internet connection.”
President Obama made these remarks during a recent trip to Pittsburgh, PA, where he unveiled a $500 million dollar “initiative” – aka stimulus – to create new manufacturing jobs. Does anyone notice something odd about the above statement?
“Revolutions in technology have transformed the way we live and the way we work.”
But just two weeks ago, the President was blaming that very technology for stubborn unemployment rates:
“There are some structural issues with our economy where a lot of businesses have learned to become much more efficient with a lot fewer workers. You see it when you go to a bank and you use an ATM, you don’t go to a bank teller, or you go to the airport and you’re using a kiosk instead of checking in at the gate. So all these things have created changes in the economy.”
Ignore the fact that the ATM was invented decades before President Obama’s failed policies led to such high unemployment…
“Businesses and industries can re-locate anywhere in the world, anywhere that there are skilled workers, anywhere that there is an Internet connection.”
Well, businesses can re-locate anywhere they want – as long as that place is forced union (see the ongoing Boeing v. NLRB debacle).
Watch as the President says one thing, and either forgets he said that or does something to the contrary.
