Thanx QH!!

Mr. Hindery is a little bit behind the news. That dinner with the infotech CEOs was a month ago on Feb. 17th. I remember we had a thread about it & I posted that it seemed like Obama was the *only* non-white person at the meeting.....which frankly is pretty scary when you think that 25% of the US population is non-white.

Here's the 'mainstream media' take on the dinner.....mostly concentrating on the topic of Steve Jobs' health--
http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9210359/Jobs_Zuckerberg_get_prime_spots_at_Obama_dinner
It does have this little gem--
White House press secretary Jay Carney said after the dinner that Obama exchanged ideas with business leaders "so we can work as partners to promote growth and create good jobs in the United States." Carney also said Obama discussed research and development spending proposals with the CEOs.
I think 'spending proposals' is a code word for 'tax breaks.' The part about creating 'good jobs' in the US is kinda clever.....Carney doesn't say *how many* good jobs. It could be 2.

Lol check this out.....

Btw Hindery gives some good data on how few Americans the infotech companies actually hire.....but like one of the commenters points out he doesn't give any concrete suggestions for increasing manufacturing or anything else that would create jobs. Doesn't even mention the history of outsourcing (underway for the past 30 years) or the number of jobs sent overseas since 1989 (it's 13.3 million). It's mainly an anti-Obama piece.
