3. The President says that as if it is a good thing.
It is not a good thing. Unfortunately the President does not appear to recognize this.

Reagan put us on a course that severely damaged the American middle class. It started with his attack on the air traffic controller's union. Then, under Reagan we started this massive wave of mergers, acquisitions, downsizing and outsourcing that cost hundreds of thousands of American workers their long term manufacturing jobs. And the nation has continued on this path of destruction ever since Reagan.

Keeping jobs in this country has not been a priority for the "job creators". This cavalier attitude toward the American worker has been aided and abetted by politicians of both parties. I remember listening to a Dubya Bush economic adviser on TV actually arguing that outsourcing jobs was beneficial to the nation.

So being a moderate Republican is certainly nothing to brag about as their policies have been a complete failure to anyone less than the very wealthy. The President needs to rethink his position on the issues. I suggest he get started soon before it is too late.
