That "Giant Sucking Sound" Again

How can this be? Didn’t our beloved President just tell us that new jobs are on the way? That economic recovery is just around the bend? Is it possible that the Commander-in-Chief of our great nation is that out of touch?

Maybe he was referring to all of the new janitorial and tobacco harvesting opportunities that will flood (does anyone even still use this?) once we legalize those 8 million illegals that ensure low wages for blue collar jobs. Somewhere in all of the rhetoric, I recall that the employers have to prove that no legal American citizen wants these crappy jobs.

Viva la Bush! Our fearless leader…Unless you happen to be one of those high-tech workers whose job just moved to India.
