8. That's true enough, but there are better reasons to SINGLE out Apple.

Hey, it's a simple economics question why SHOULD I support someone who so openly makes it plain that they do not support OUR future?

After the initial blunt statement that the jobs are not coming back there was one other telling quote:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Eventually, the orbits of the men overlapped. “I’m not worried about the country’s long-term future,” Jobs told Obama, according to one observer. “This country is insanely great. What I’m worried about is that we don’t talk enough about solutions.”
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cue the beavis and butthead laughter. We don't talk enough about solutions? This from the man who just flat out said his company's future is OUTSIDE this country.

Another person thought that way as well. I beleive she is quoted by history as saying: "Let them eat CAKE!"
