Here's an excerpt from a newsletter I get indicating how Hillary Clinton took the bait that Lou Dobbs set for her and hit her between the eyes. She was on CNN decrying the companies who outsourced jobs to cheap foreign labor and telling all of the things she was doing to stop it and create jobs here.
Then Lou hit her with the fact that she helped TATA consulting set up offices here to OUTSOURCE American jobs. She responded with " but they created 10 jobs in the buffalo area. What she didn't mention was that of those, 70% are H1B's, here to solicit work for India.
What troubles me is the fact that our government, both state and federal has huge deficits, people are losing everything and our elected officials are still advocating H1B and L1 use where many are paying NO federal taxes and advocating illegal aliens who in many cases also are paying no state or federal taxes.

Senator Hillary Clinton went on Lou Dobbs yesterday to talk about her concerns on the outsourcing issue. Hillary didn't know that Lou Dobbs set her up with a trap - and Hillary took the bait. In order to understand why Hillary was so vulnerable to Dobb's setup, please go to the archive, scroll near the bottom, and read "Buffaloed by Hillary" Parts 1-4.
Dr. Norman Matloff a similar series during that time period that are also worth reading. Here are the links:

For quick reference, here are some of the sordid connections between TATA and the Clintons:
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton gave a welcoming party and the red carpet treatment for the Indian owned bodyshop TATA and it's CEO Subramaniam Ramadorai. The celebration - TATA was setting up an office in Buffalo. TATA's website praised Clinton's sellout of principle by saying, "The deal was the brainchild of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY)".
Vinod Gupta, the president of TATA, admitted that 70% of the work will be sent offshore and only 30% will be done in the United States. Gupta says that half his employees are Indians on work visas, and that was good enough for Hillary! Gupta not only got a call from the Clintons for a dinner banquet during Prime Minister Vajpayee's visit, but he also got a sleepover at the White House. Gupta gave $2,000 to Ms. Clinton to support her campaign and more than $100,000 to the Democratic National Committee.
Here is a list of Indian-owned bodyshops that Hillary invited to New York:

Ashok Soota, founder of Mindtree, is offered Hillary a nice prize for selling out - an expense paid junket to India for all of her business buddies. Hillary hosted a tea party for the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII). www.ciionline.org/
Lou Dobbs show analysis 5 Steps Used to Trap Hillary Clinton :
Step 1: Baiting Clinton: Lou Dobbs allows Clinton to blather about how she wants to protect jobs. She even pretends to be compassionate and caring. CLINTON: Getting our trade system right, you know, I was very disappointed when the current administration moved away from the Jordan free trade agreement, which began to try to put into place higher labor and environmental standards so it wasn't a race to the bottom. We also need to be looking at the fair treatment of our workers, and that's a big problem for us in Upstate New York, because we've lost so many manufacturing jobs and now we're losing service jobs. And we're not giving people the support they need to find their way back into the job market. But at the same time, we've got to have the jobs for them to be able to take.
Step 2: Setting-up Clinton. Ouch! That must a hurt, especially after she just got finished saying how she was going to save manufacturing jobs. DOBBS: I think we're all with you on that part. I would just like to point out, however, that free trade didn't begin with this administration. Your husband's administration was a leading proponent and a rather effective advocate of that, including the onset of NAFTA, of course.
Step 3 - Dropping the Bomb on Clinton. Dobbs asks her about her cozy relationship with TATA. All of you that are emailing Dobbs should get credit for this one! DOBBS: Amongst the number of things, when we said you were going to be our guest here, Senator, a number of people pointed out to us, e- mailing us and calling us, saying, ask the senator about her helping Tata Consulting, a well-known outsourcer, open jobs -- and office in Buffalo, New York. I'm asking you, did you really understand the degree to which they were involved in outsourcing jobs when you were there?
Step 4: Allow for Clinton's Damage Control Clinton's attempt at damage control was pathetic. She sounds like she was coached by Harris Miller. Hillary brags that TATA created ten jobs in Buffalo. She is probably talking about ten token American citizens that TATA hired because you can bet TATA brought a whole lot more than 10 Indians on visa into New York. CLINTON: Well, of course I know that they outsource jobs, that they've actually brought jobs to Buffalo. They've created 10 jobs in Buffalo and have told me and the Buffalo community that they intend to be a source of new jobs in the area, because, you know, outsourcing does work both ways. You know, we cannot close our borders. We have to be smarter about competing. We have, more enforceable trade agreements. But we also have to attract jobs from around the world. And you know, we are still the biggest market with the greatest potential for growth for businesses from literally every corner of the world.
Step 5: Allow Clinton to dig herself deeper into the hole. First she criticizes Bush for allowing outsourcing, and then describes why outsourcing can't be stopped. Did I miss something here, dear Hillary, or do you and Bush agree that American job destruction must continue? Clinton demonstrated her socialist ideology and her contempt for the "public sector" when she said that outsourcing isn't an issue that they should be concerned about. Apparently she only cares if government employees lose jobs. Clinton probably forgot Dobbs question because she had a freudian slip - she defended TATA's right to import H-1Bs and L-1s by declaring that we can't "close our borders". It's also very noticeable that she only talked about manufacturing jobs - not the tech jobs that she has helped to destroy in New York. CLINTON: I look forward to supporting him [John Kerry] in any way that he requests, because I think that we are going to provide an alternative, just as we are today on the Senate floor providing an alternative to the lack of economic policies by this administration and really the celebration of outsourcing. You know, we're not going to stop all outsourcing. I'm not in favor of putting up fences around our country. I think what I want is to address the challenge we face and make sure that we are equipped to provide the incentives both to our workers and to our employers. And Lou, let me say one other thing, because this is not just an issue for the public sector. I think that private sector leadership the rule of law that we support, everything that is great about living in America. And I think, frankly, that they need to be more responsible in how they view their obligations to this country.

WOW!!!!!I'm gonna run right over and join in thge line of 2500 people that were in line for Geico's 50 job openings.
This evil witch has done NOTHING! Nothing but go to fundraisers and stand up for the money for homeland security, she claims that the $$ aren't reaching the places it's suppose to go.
Everyone involved are still trying to figure out what she is talking about.
I seriously think she is extremely mentally handicapped or in short a freaken retard!
If only we could be so lucky.
If Kerry boots McAulliffe from the DNC vault, the sharks will smell Bubba/Shillary blood. The sharks will be the same ones who have been swimming with Hillary all along. They've had that "Just keep swimming" attitude, knowing if they stopped swimming they'd be cast aside or eaten by the rest. Eventually that pack behavior turns on itself.
The next thirty days will either mark the Clintons or coat them in slippery teflon. I'm going for the mark. Eating the Clintons alive on national media shows will redeem the average Democrat, moving them to the middle, and making Kerry a more viable candidate. It will divert attention from the Massachussets Liberal label and make him seem like he's willing to take on tough, moral issues by gutting the Clintons. Sort of a "clean up our own house first" thing. Thus allowing him to do the same to Bush. Right now he can't touch Bush on issues of ethics, morality, integrity, and doing what needs to be done regardless of the pain. If he hangs the Clintons out in the wind, he'll attract a lot of moderates.
All of the above ;-)
So. . . let me see if I've got this right. If Hillary Clinton advocates offshoring, it's bad. If George W. Bush does it, it's good. Does that about cover it?
