American’s jobs and manufacturing base have been DRIVEN offshore by a combined massive burden of taxation, regulations and insane legal liabilities of doing business, insane disability regulations and the need to fund a huge non productive welfare entitlement system.

Americans don’t want to attract (more) foreign businesses..... Americans want to start their own businesses....Now get your socialist rear out of our way!

I’m surprised even Obozo could stand himself, giving this speech. If we actually wanted to attract foreign investment in new US based factories, we would lower our federal tax rates, we would drastically lessen the power of the EPA to prevent development, and we would quit providing federal government support to big labor unions who push our labor rates ever higher so as to be non-competitive. All of this is the complete opposite of Obama’s policies, and he wouldn’t even argue the point.

He is ignorant.

Last year, the trade deficit was $479 billion. Now, all those dollars have to return to the U.S. because you can't spend them anywhere else. So, that represents almost $1/2 billion in foreign investment (if they don't buy our goods or services, they buy our debt, equities or other assets).

Of course, the Federal government issued $1.3 trillion worth of debt last year to pay its deficit, so a lot of foreign investment was siphoned away from the private sector and went, instead, to Washington.

None of it has anything to do with free trade. It's all a result of government debt and government inflation. Obama, of course, wouldn't know anything about any of that. Unfortunately, I don't think Bernanke does, either.

Throughout contemporary history there has never been a communist leader who wasn’t so damned evil that he surely went directly to hell. The entire idea of socialism cum communism is such convoluted thought in itself that when a nut case is heading up the evil theory only chaos ensues.

This commie fatherless scum takes the cake. He’s not ordered mass murders yet, but that was on the back burner once he’d consolidated the power the nincompoops and the Republicrats handed to him.

AND he’s a walking, talking lie!

Drug kicking from his warm White Hut and then straddled atop a rail with tar and feathers thrown at him isn’t punishment enough for what he’s done to this nation.
