God is sick of George Bush

I don't think he likes Bush

Bush Defends Outsourcing of Jobs During India Visit

Published: March 3, 2006

NEW DELHI, March 3 - President Bush met with Indian entrepreneurs, toured an agricultural university and inspected a water buffalo during a four-hour trip to the southern city of Hyderabad on Friday, when he said that the United States should welcome rather than fear competition from India.

"People do lose jobs as a result of globalization and it's painful for those who lose jobs," Mr. Bush said at meeting with young entrepreneurs at Hyderabad's Indian School of Business, one of the premier schools of its kind in India. Nonetheless, the president said, "globalization provides great opportunities."

Mr. Bush, reiterating a theme of his trip, strongly defended the outsourcing of American jobs to India as the reality of a global economy, and said that the United States should instead focus on India as a vital new market for American goods. Hyderabad is a center of India's booming high-tech industry, and was also on President Bill Clinton's itinerary when he visited India in 2000.

"The classic opportunity for our American farmers and entrepreneurs and small businesses to understand is there is a 300 million-person market of middle class citizens here in India, and that if we can make a product they want, that it becomes viable," Mr. Bush said at the business school.

At an earlier stop at Hyderabad's Acharya N.G. Ranga Agricultural University, Mr. Bush watched Indian women in saris hand-till the soil around tomatoes, peanuts and soybeans. One of the women gave Mr. Bush a thumbs'-up sign as he walked past. The president also viewed the water buffalo and some Indian handcrafts.

First, it's the ports, now it's jobs.

Jesus, is Bush completely clueless? People hate calling India for service, there are real substantial problems with outsourcing.

Yet, Bush says it's OK.

A man with a clue would not praise outsourcing while Congress is planning to block a deal to outsource management of US ports
