Do the elites really think we Americans are THIS stupid?

Obama calls India creator, not poacher, of US jobs, from Associated Press, dated Nov 6, 2010.

Yes, our sheep in wolf's clothing, our corporatocracy (or should I say kleptocracy) house negro servant is at it again, trying to make mush from the impressionable Americans' brain matter,

But people are not this stupid, not even here, right?

Searching for help half a world away, President Barack Obama on Saturday embraced India as the next jobs-creating giant for hurting Americans, not a cheap-labor rival that outsources opportunity from the United States.


"There still exists a caricature of India as a land of call centers and back offices that cost American jobs. That's a real perception," Obama said.

No shit el presidente?

The horde of Indian IT workers I see every-fucking-day as I take my walk outside my office building (the ratio is about 6 cow worshippers to 1 American, of any race) point to a glorious future for myself (me being an IT worker).

One would figure that the president would balk at having to read this shit - that is, unless, one did not consider that the elites live in a bubble (in this case a White House bubble) and the information they get is rationed.

For some reason I do not see Obama getting his news from Google or AP or BBC like the rest of us.

I see him getting his news and reports from his advisers, second or third hand.

I do not believe the man knows anything about America (or India or the rest of the world for that matter) other than what is told him.

Or perhaps I am defending the man too much.

Perhaps he REALLY IS a good house negro servant to the elites, and does and reads whatever they tell him to read.

Seeking to dismiss all "old stereotypes," Obama said the relationship between the countries is "creating jobs, growth, and higher living standards in both our countries. And that is the truth."

Well, the legion of unemployed (highly paid) IT workers in America beg to differ, Mr. President.

And these people are not spending money buying shit to prop up our FIRE economy (read up on it elsewhere or another of mine; article here).

Mr. President, spend a few minutes to an hour on google news, BBC America; worst case scenario, CNN or ABC or NBC.

In fact, spend an hour each day browsing these sites for news like the rest of us - cut back the "adviser" time and meetings.

It will do you and the country some good, I think.

At the least you won't sound like a complete clueless moron.

Chairman Obamao is there to sell military arms in what I believe is the sixth biggest arms deal on record.

President Obama is traveling to India this weekend to make a $5 billion sale for 10 of Boeing's C-17 cargo planes. If India signs the contract, this would be the sixth biggest arms deal in U.S. history.

Thanks for comments, I got irked by the tone of the article.

10 Boeing planes do not equal much to be honest.

"The Air Force is now on contract to buy 15 more C-17s, bringing the planned inventory up to 205 airplanes. That means the new “last day” of C-17 production, barring further USAF orders, will be in late 2010"


"Joining the defense-stimulus bandwagon, she said the C-17 is a good jobs program, employing 30,000 people in 43 states, mostly clustered in California, Texas, Missouri, and Connecticut. It puts $8 billion into the national economy and employs 650 supplier companies."

So I can see where the jobs are.

But I wonder if for the 10 Boeing planes, Obama and his court did not guarantee the expansion of the H1B visa program.

Which would impact myself directly.
