    Why does the loony left pretend to hate outsourcing? The Dear Leader appointed Jeffrey Immelt head of GE as his Domestic Jobs Czar.


    About a month after the appointment, GE outsource all of its medical imaging manufacturing to China.

    "'GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt, The Head Of Obama’s Jobs Council, Is Moving Jobs And Economic Infrastructure To China At A Blistering Pace
    By Michael, on July 29th, 2011 Jeffrey Immelt, the head of Barack Obama's highly touted "Jobs Council", is moving even more GE infrastructure to China. GE makes more medical-imaging machines than anyone else in the world, and now GE has announced that it "is moving the headquarters of its 115-year-old X-ray business to Beijing". Apparently, this is all part of a "plan to invest about $2 billion across China" over the next few years. But moving core pieces of its business overseas is nothing new for GE. Under Immelt, GE has shipped tens of thousands of good jobs out of the United States. Perhaps GE should change its slogan to "Imagination At Work (In China)". If the very people that have been entrusted with solving the unemployment crisis are shipping jobs out of the country, what hope is there that things are going to turn around any time soon?

    Earlier this month, Immelt made the following statement to a jobs summit at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce....

    'There's no excuse today for lack of leadership. The truth is we all need to be part of the solution."
    Apparently Immelt's idea of being part of the solution is to ship as many jobs overseas as he possibly can.

    A recent article on the Huffington Post documented how GE has been sending tens of thousands of good jobs out of the country....

    As the administration struggles to prod businesses to create jobs at home, GE has been busy sending them abroad. Since Immelt took over in 2001, GE has shed 34,000 jobs in the U.S., according to its most recent annual filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. But it's added 25,000 jobs overseas.

    At the end of 2009, GE employed 36,000 more people abroad than it did in the U.S. In 2000, it was nearly the opposite.'"

    Where was the outrage from the loony left on the Dear Leader's appointee Immelt outsourcing jobs?

    Even the radical left Huffington Post thinks it is wrong so why can't our loons fess up and condemn it?

    They don't say anything because they are uninformed, ignoramus, HYPOCRITES!!!!

    Sentiment: Hold
