Wow! Good paying jobs with benefits coming back to the USA. President Obama's leadership is paying off for the working American. Recently an auto factory was opened in Georgia.

This is the economic recovery we've all been hoping for.

If you snag a good job and raise your standard of living how is that being "deceived and lied to"?

No, that is trying to win votes. Obamacare is deceitful and making promises he has yet kept is lying

Airbus creating jobs in America when there are 15 millions of unemployed in Europe?
That doesn't make sense.
Most US airlines won't buy anything but Boeing anyway.

Airbus is a global company. They build planes where it makes sense to build them. The planes being assembled in the USA will be eligible for government contracts for instance... Boeing's last baby is a huge advertisement for Airbus by the way. The A380 is doing nicely

They are a good company to work for but it does not mean they are philantropists.

To sell in America, you have to manufacture in America. The Japanese carmakers, and then the German ones have understood that long time ago, and are seen as "domestic" industries.

Airbus will greatly improve its chances to penetrate the US market if it is seen as a "local" plane maker, so moving some production facilities across the Atlantic makes sense.

A comment that smacks of protectionism.

Montebourg would be proud of you!
