President Barack Obama is hammering rival Mitt Romney on his supposed jobs outsourcing at Bain Capital. Regardless if Mitt Romney was still CEO of Bain during his leave of absence from 1999 to 2002 when Bain began outsourcing jobs, let’s look at Obama’s record while he was CEO of the United States of America.
Back in January it was reported that the Obama controlled Pentagon awarded a contract to Sierra Nevada Corp. who in turn will work closely with Embraer, a Brazilian company, to produce a light attack aircraft for the U.S. military. The contract is worth $345 million dollars and would have provided work for 1,400 American workers, most of which would have been union workers, but since it appears that Embraer will be doing most of the work on the aircraft, those jobs will be leaving the country.
Hawker Beechcraft Corp., a Kansas based company has reportedly filed suit, forcing the Air Force to stop all work on the aircraft. Their suit claims that their company was blocked from presenting a bid for the contract and therefore the awarding of the contract was unfair. They also claim that their AT-6 aircraft performed better than the Brazilian made counterpart and that it was more popular with the pilots that tested the planes.
Last year, under White House direction, U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis signed an agreement with six Latin American countries to help protect the rights of migrant workers in the U.S. The agreement included the education and protection of illegal immigrants from Mexico and other Central American countries.
Then in his latest action to keep jobs from American citizens, President Obama announced in June that he was using an executive order to allow nearly one million illegal aliens to remain and WORK in the U.S. This executive order had nothing to do with immigration or ethics, but everything to do with trying to win the Hispanic vote in November, and yes, this includes having thousands, if not millions of illegals voting.
President Barack Obama cares nothing about American jobs and his actions to date say so. He also promised to create five million green jobs and we have seen the failure of that promise big time and at a huge cost to taxpayers. If you listen to Obama and his administration, they claim that there are currently three million green jobs in the U.S., but don’t believe it. They classify garbage collectors, steel workers, nuclear power workers, school and employee bus transportation and so on as green jobs.
The bottom line is that Obama’s record as CEO of the U.S. includes outsourcing jobs overseas, giving millions of jobs to illegal aliens and spending billions of dollars on failed green job programs. And he has the audacity to point a finger at Mitt Romney? I wish the Romney campaign would make a campaign ad based on this information and blast it across the nation. Then let’s see how the American public will react.
