Hillary In India- "The Outsourcing Will Continue". Obama Supporters STOP FEEDING THE WRIGHT STORY
Edited on Mon Apr-28-08 06:16 PM by cryingshame
pro-Hillary 527's are set to run ads attacking Obama on the Economy. Obama's campaign hasn't controlled a news cycle in weeks. DAMN IT! Stop feeding the Wright story and focus on something else. It's insane the amount of reactionary screaming going on.

Hillary herself said the words "the outsourcing will continue" while in India.

She called HERSELF the Senator from Punjab.

She AND Bill have taken a lot of money from Indian businessmen.

She's been against legislation to stop the outsourcing.

Hillary Clinton woos India
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 was in New Delhi last week in her own right as New York senator and as a person whom India sees as playing an important role in global politics and economics in the near future. She may deny that she aspires to be the Democratic nominee for president and says she is looking forward to standing for re-election to New York in 2006, but the rest of the world (including India) certainly does not perceive her in this light.

snip
It may be recalled that former president Bill Clinton enjoyed close ties to the Indian American community during his presidency. It was he who first actively sought to build bridges as well as cultivate the Indian community in the US, recognizing their numbers - more than 2 million - as well as their immense money-power (read potential campaign fund contributors) as global information technology pioneers.

The 2004 US elections also witnessed Indian-Americans reaching out to Republican George W Bush as a reaction to the virulent anti-outsourcing campaign being orchestrated by former Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry.

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.
S

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.

7. You are right.
This is the kind of thing that needs to be brought before the votes of Indiana, and every other state that has lost jobs to outsourcing. Obama needs to take a hard stand on the loss of jobs in this country, and the money lost in taxes by the corporations that are making a killing outsourcing, and bringing the stuff back in duty free because of "NAFTA", that little trade agreement her husband pushed through congress, and she supported "until" she started running for the nominee for president!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

11. I'll feed this one
Happy to feed a thread like this. Also, in addition to the outsourcing, Hillary favors MORE of the visas to bring in high-tech workers from India. The corporations want this, so of course so does she. As a computer programmer myself, I find this highly offensive and it directly effects my ability (actually inability lately) to make a living.

So why does Lou Dobbs give her a free ride? I was watching a show of his where he dismissed as ridiculous claims that Hillary supported NAFTA or the Columbia trade agreement. Of all people to not get this issue, I woulda thought Dobbs would be the least likely. I had a tiny amount of respect for him before that (only on trade issues), but no more.

Anyone know Obama's position on outsourcing and/or high-tech work visas? I haven't heard much either way, would be interested though.

One thing for sure: we don't need a Democrat in the white house that's really undermining Democratic values.
