Campaign 2004 — Bush: "Outsourcing is good!"

Despite the arguments one can make that outsourcing can be good overall for the country economically, George W. Bush can't really like the headlines inspired by his economic report. For there is a section in there defending outsourcing, which can't be too pleasing to all those who lost their jobs because Indians are willing to work for less money. And yes, it has inspired many headlines. . .

This is the sort of thing that people who have lost their jobs or are uncertain about their jobs will not like to hear.

I guess I should also note Bush's budget reports aren't widely considered to be dispassionate and/or sober in the issue of job creation, deficit reduction, or well on anything.
