There are 368 comments on the Washington Post story from Jul 12, 2012, titled Obama and outsourcing: a guide to the GOP's charges. In it, Washington Post reports that:

"Over his four years in office, Obama promised that he would focus on creating "jobs that pay well and can't be outsourced." However, as he racked up trillions in new debt, billions of dollars did go to create jobs that were outsourced or spent overseas.

Obama's Stimulus Tax Dollars Used to Create Jobs Overseas


by John Nolte
10 Jul 2012

What do Finnish cars, Mexican solar panels, and Danish windmills have in common? They were all funded by your tax dollars.

Thanks to President Obama, taxpayer money, mostly in the form of stimulus funds, ended up in the hands of companies overseas. Instead of creating jobs in America, the stimulus and other Obama policies created jobs or sent money to Finland, New Zealand, Indonesia, India, Mexico, Germany, Australia, Switzerland, China, Denmark, South Korea, the Dominican Republic, Thailand, Vietnam, Italy, Russia, Luxembourg, El Salvador, Great Britain, Spain, Japan, and France.

How did this happen? Consider the example of Fisker Automotive. The company received $500 million in loan guarantees from the U.S. government to produce electric cars. Then they took their money and decided to produce their $100,000 electric sports cars in Finland.

President Obama's policies may be spurring job creation in Scandinavia. But here at home, twenty-three million Americans are struggling for work. Millions of middle class families can barely make ends meet.

The billions of dollars that went overseas largely had to be borrowed. In other words, President Obama borrowed money from countries like China to send money to... countries like China. It's that kind of reckless spending that led President Obama to rack up $5.6 trillion in debt over the last three and a half years, bringing our total national debt to $15.8 trillion.

Hillary clears outsourcing air

Mar 1, 2005
By Siddharth Srivastava

NEW DELHI - For all those who think that Hillary Clinton isn't gearing up for the US presidential elections circa 2008, they would do well to take a peep at her recent visit to India. She wasn't here as the wife of ex-president Bill Clinton, well known for enjoying India having visited the country several times as president, meanwhile charming a whole lot of Indians.


Hillary Clinton made it apparent where she stood on outsourcing during her India visit, in an attempt perhaps to clear the Indian misgivings received during the Kerry campaign.

"There is no way to legislate against reality. Outsourcing will continue," she told an audience of Indian big-wigs.

She pointed out that there were 3 billion people who feel left behind and are trying to attack the modern world in the hope of turning the clock back on globalization. "It is not far-fetched to imagine ... if the Indian miracle would be the one of choice of those who feel left behind," said Hillary.

Hillary has been at the forefront in defending free trade and outsourcing.

During the height of the anti-outsourcing backlash in the US last year, she faced considerable flak for defending Indian software giant Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) for opening a center in Buffalo, New York. "We are not against all outsourcing; we are not in favor of putting up fences," Hillary said firmly, despite inevitably invoking the ire of the anti-free trade brigade.

Hillary further clarified her position during her recent visit as well as solutions that could be beneficial to both countries. She urged Indian industries to invest more in the US to allay negative outpourings over outsourcing of American jobs to India. "I have to be frank. People in my country are losing their jobs and the US policymakers need to address this issue," she said. She ruled out that the anti-India feeling was a reflexive reaction, and explained that the feeling was more because of the imbalance in trade between the two countries, which in turn caused anguish among Americans about the nature of the economic relationship.

Obama the Outsourcing POS 2009-10
Obama's Stimulus money is being used to create upt to 300 jobs in Texas for a proposed wind farm. But our tax money will create 2,000 jobs in China to manufacture the turbines.
Walt Hornaday, an American partner on the project, said it would create some American jobs.“Our estimation,” he said,“is that we are going to have on the order of 300 construction jobs just within the fence of the project.” But that’s in addition to 2,000 manufacturing jobs — many of them in China.
So, let me get this straight, Obama’s stimulus plan is to spend U.S. tax dollars to create jobs in Communist China; from my paycheck into their pockets. But they are green jobs–yippee!
The Chinese company called A-power does not even have an office in this country. Let me correct that, they have an office door for an empty room like many a con artist has. Please see this San Die

When might we get that back? And yes, he did jam the job killing obozocare along with it's 12 new taxes down our throats. BTW, obozo was never a professor and the moron certainly did not find and kill Osama single-handedly.

FactCheck.Org : No Evidence Romney Shipped Jobs Overseas


FactCheck.Org keeps most of its focus on the Obama campaign's ads and statements, but you can also read this as a repudiation of the Washington Post's now discredited reporting.

The evidence is now irrefutable. The Post and the Obama campaign not only coordinated an attack against Mitt Romney, they coordinated a false attack against Mitt Romney.

As you know, I'm no fan of these dishonest media fact-checkers and find myself uncomfortable citing them, even to back our side up. But knowing what I know about how these fact-checkers were designed by the media to undermine criticisms and potential narratives that might damage Obama means that this kind of exception is notable.

Fact check: Biden's manufactured jobs claims

Fact, the manufacturing sector has taken a bigger hit under Obama — undercutting Biden's claim that "manufacturing is back."

By Eugene Kiely,
FactCheck.org


Declaring "manufacturing is back," Vice President Biden gave a rosy — but not entirely accurate or complete — picture of U.S. manufacturing at a March 28 campaign stop in Iowa.

* Since the start of the Obama administration in January 2009, the U.S. has 661,000 fewer manufacturing jobs.

• In fact, manufacturing jobs represent a disproportionate share of job losses since Obama took office. In all, the U.S. has lost a net 864,000 non-farm jobs since January 2009 — a decline of one half of 1%. But manufacturing jobs are down 5% since then.

* One recent study found that at the Obama current pace, it will take until 2020 for the U.S. to recover the manufacturing jobs lost since 2007, the year Democrats (Including Biden and Obama) took control of Congress.

* In fact, the manufacturing sector has taken a bigger hit under Obama — undercutting Biden's claim that "manufacturing is back."

'Obama pays your bills' scam fools thousands of Obama supporters


Jul 11, 2012
By David Jackson, USA TODAY

News reports say thousands are falling for a multistate identity theft scam in which the scammers secure private records by claiming the Obama administration will pay utility bills.

"The criminals have been marching across the country, making their way from state to state, persuading victims that a special federal government assistance program -- sometimes described as a bailout authorized by President Barack Obama's administration -- is available to pay their utility bills," MSNBC reported.

The network said, "Victims are given bank account and routing numbers to use when paying their bills online, but only after they 'register' by surrendering their Social Security numbers and other personal information."

MSNBC reported that 2,000 residents in Tampa fell for the fake offer.

Yahoo! News reports some background:

The scheme was first reported in May, when Dallas-based Atmos Energy warned its 3 million customers in 12 states that scammers had been asking for Social Security numbers to enroll in the faux federal program.

According to the pitch -- distributed via email, Facebook, text message, phone and, in some cases, door-to-door sales -- the government would pay a month of energy costs through credits offered by the Obama administration.

PSE&G, the New Jersey gas and electric delivery utility, issued a similar warning the same month. According to MSNBC, there were 10,000 reported victims in New Jersey in recent weeks, and thousands more in North Carolina, Indiana and Pennsylvania.

The offer even includes a fake Federal Reserve bank routing number for those who enroll, and solicits "success stories" to pass along to friends online.

"Most of these claims are ridiculous, especially for an organization that claims it supports free enterprise. If a foreign company gets stimulus funds, but spends the money in the United States and hires U.S. workers at its U.S. subsidiary, we fail to see how that is money being “sent overseas.” As the account above shows, some companies built new factories in the United States after getting stimulus funds."
This ADULT will be happy to explain any of the big words you didn't understand. What part about money spend IN OTHER COUNTRIES did you not understand? Even Dems. in congress were bothered by this. And, as a person living in DE, I STILL have yet to see any of the money advanced to Fisker to build cars in DE show up. But, Fisker is doing a great deal with said money overseas. So, let me know the words you didn't get and I'll try to break them down into something that you CAN understand.

LOL - More leftwing blog crud. Really, have you ANY facts to back up what your wrote or is just parroting, lemming-like, anything the DNC or far left blog prints the best you can do? The actual fact is that the MAJOR cause of companies locating in other countries are ALL Democrat ideals. UNIONS drive the cost of manufacturing up so much with their strikes and demands that no company can remain profitable (See the Steel manufacturing business, now almost exclusively in foreign countries), and profits are the ONLY reason to remain in business. I know, I know, you progressives believe that companies exist ONLY to employ you and your cronies, profit not needed. EXCESSIVE TAXES drive companies to other countries with a friendlier tax base, Dems. are the ones who just live to raise taxes, that is all they want, higher taxes for everyone but themselves. So, there you have it, Business 101. Tax too high, regulate excessively, make the cost of doing business to high in America and a logical conclusion will be that said company will find a better place to do business. See what learning a few facts will do? Try it sometime before you spout off.
