Apparently my google skills have suddenly failed because I can't even find this one. Could you be a dear and find it for me?<quoted text>
Obama was the one who told the auto worker industry that they were going to have to suffer by giving up their jobs for the good of the country
Look, if you don't want people to chide you for sounding ignorant, do a half second of research before making a claim.
State to yourself what the issue is.
"I think Obama is spending more than other presidents are on travel"
Then test that through some questions.
"How much is he spending and why?"
"How much did other presidents spend and why?"
"What were the contexts of each?"
Then, if you don't know the answers to these questions, google them.
Ta-da! Informed exchange is now ready to happen. It's easy, fun and helps develop skills that will keep you sounding clever far into your life.
