Obama Visits India Under the Pretense that India Is Going to “Save” the American Economy.

November 6, 2010

This story is printed in Bloomberg – whose reporters ought to have their heads examined for printing this insanity.

Bloomberg is reporting what apparently is the White House talking points of why they are justified spending $200 million/per day on a trip — because India is going to save American jobs.

This is insane.

Then Bloomberg lists the companies that India is going to “save” namely Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Wal-Mart, and GE. America needs to create an environment for innovation and small businesses. Government needs to cut taxes, reduce regulation and get spending under control. The President’s trip to India does none of these.

Eswar Prasad, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and a professor at Cornell University, discusses President Barack Obama’s trip to India and its implications for relations between the two countries. This guy is also full of it. Along with the Boeing and Lockheed lackeys, the other interest groups tagging along on the President’s India trip are the Universities to see how much Government Grant Funds they can suck off the American Taxpayer for free to fund development and research and their own enterprise in foreign countries.

Whatever the true motivation for the President’s trip to India is, one thing is certain, it’s not for the benefit of the American People or American Businesses.

Here’s the Crap Bloomberg is reporting:

President Barack Obama’s mission overseas in his first two years in office was improving the U.S. image abroad. His next round of travel is focused on repairing the U.S. economy and his relationship with businesses at home.

Obama arrived in India today and during a 10-day, four- nation trip he is peppering his schedule with events linked to expanding U.S. exports. On his first day in India, the president will address the U.S.-India Business Council in Mumbai, India’s financial capital, and huddle with a group of chief executive officers including Jeffrey Immelt of General Electric Co. and Jim McNerney of Boeing Co. to help push along multibillion- dollar deals for U.S. companies.

“The primary purpose is to take a bunch of U.S. companies and open up markets so that we can sell in Asia, in some of the fastest-growing markets in the world,” Obama said Nov. 4 after meeting with his Cabinet at the White House. In an opinion piece published yesterday in the New York Times, he said companies will announce contracts worth “billions of dollars” in India.

While planned long in advance around scheduled meetings of the Group of 20 nations in South Korea and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in Japan, Obama’s trip begins four days after U.S. voters in midterm elections turned control of the House of Representatives over to Republicans and narrowed the Democratic Party’s Senate majority. Obama described his party’s losses as a “shellacking.”

New Focus

The sluggish U.S. economy, a national jobless rate that has been at or above 9.5 percent for 14 consecutive months and a federal budget deficit forecast by the administration to hit $1.4 trillion this year were top issues in the campaign.

Obama’s previous overseas trips focused on his vision for U.S. relations with the world, said Heather Conley, director of Europe Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington.

“Post midterm election, it’s the balancing act of addressing the domestic urgency at home and jobs and being responsive to a very fast-paced international scene,” she said.

Obama said he wants to “show the connection between what we’re doing overseas and what happens here at home when it comes to job growth and economic growth.”

Commentary: You have got to be kidding. If you’ve been listening to the after election news. Obama’s current talking point is that the White House’s messages were not clear and the White House’s message needs to be communicated better so the American people can understand it. Note to Obama, American’s aren’t stupid. The message the White House communicated was perfectly clear and was rejected. It was rejected because it doesn’t make sense when one looks at reality. The same can be said about the White House’s message regarding the purpose of the President’s trip to India — the White House talking points makes no sense. Therefore, there is and must be another ulterior motive for the trip. Until the White House starts speaking in facts and reality, the White House should not feign surprise that American’s don’t buy the never never land stories.

Shout out to Glenn Beck.  You should really start looking at the White-House University partnerships.  Where Federal grants go to the Universities to fund more than 80% of research — you have Washington Politics now controlling the innovation and commercial markets.
