BETTENDORF, Iowa -- President Barack Obama on Tuesday brought a made-in-America pitch to this politically vital state, saying innovation and adaptation will help the manufacturing sector and the entire U.S. economy rebound with more gusto. He admonished a divided Washington to stop bickering and rally together like a team.

Watched on CSPAN, the claim that ‘the economy was brought back from the brink, and is now on the right track, but it will take time’, when reality is every economic indicator shows we are worse off now. Could someone please have Glinda magically transfers the powerful ruby slippers?

Yes, the US must ‘up it’s game’, but this isn’t what is being promoted by this administration that wants to punish people for being successful. The best motivation for ‘upping’ our game is to allow people to benefit from their efforts.

To be successful as a nation, we need to encourage people to work hard, take risks, and delay gratification in pursuit of long range goals. You don’t do that by punishing the successful and characterizing them as greedy. We are also not going to ‘up our game’ by rewarding union workers just because they are in unions, irrespective of their efforts or achievements.

FUBO!

Nobody ain’t gonna do nuthin’ until you and your goons quit screwing around with the country. If you quit today, it would, IMHO, take at least two years before enough confidence could be gained to begin making a difference.

Take your Cloward-Piven and stick it!

When I just looked, there were 15 comments. Not one of them was remotely complementary. The times, they are a changing, I hope.

The U.S. will not add manufacturing jobs, in the sense of union line workers. That is for Third World countries that don’t have to deal with unions.

However, we could add tons of technology support jobs as manufacturing becomes more computerized and more efficient. However, companies will not make that investment with the current POTUS/Union Leader in charge.
