Bush Tackles Outsourcing Issue

"On the final day of his India visit, the president defends U.S. firms that send jobs overseas."

'Coz it's good for 'Merica.

HYDERABAD, India — Touching on one of the most politically heated aspects of the U.S. relationship with India, President Bush on Friday defended American corporations that outsource jobs overseas in pursuit of inexpensive labor.


"People do lose jobs as a result of globalization, and it's painful for those who lose jobs," the president said during a round-table discussion at the India School of Business in this city about 800 miles south of New Delhi.

"But the fundamental question is, 'How does a government or society react to that?'

"And it's basically one of two ways. One is to say losing jobs is painful, therefore let's throw up protectionist walls.

And the other is to say losing jobs is painful, so let's make sure people are educated so they can find — fill the jobs of the 21st century."
Here are the jobs of the 21st Century, people:

Wal-Mart Associate
On-Line Surveys (Seriously, YOU could be making $ in the next few minutes!)
Subway Sandwich Technician
Whole Foods Associate
Real Estate (Seriously, YOU could be making BIG $ in the next few minutes!)
On Thursday, the president played host in New Delhi to a meeting of chief executives focusing on trade policies and other economic issues.

The event included executives from corporate giants Cargill Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co., Citigroup Inc., Honeywell International Inc., PepsiCo Inc., Visa International and Xerox Corp.
The Presidents of the United States of America.


(They're getting what they want, people.)

More later...
