There is no difference in who is to blame, whether it is the present or previous WH or it is the CEO's. They are all in the wealthy category, for whom these concerns never really touch their daily lives, hence they make these decisions without concern for those whom are displaced and really hurt by it. Blame the Bush's and the present WH. The previous WH is long gone! The TV stations across America have banned reporting on the growing displaced white families all throughout the country, and especially in the Midwest. Where is their fault, and all these alternative jobs? I'm sure they have been beaten down enough to take a street sweeper's job, yet even those aren't availalbe. The policies and the consciences of these wealthy, who invariably support Republican tickets really care nothing and justify their offshoring and no concern for their fellow citizens by simply avoiding responsibility for their actions: 1) Jobless recovery - that's the answer 2) just wait, don'y worry there are no benefits of any kind, just wait, we'll have thousands of jobs coming soon -- and its 3 years later 3) off shoring will increase profits and reduce expenses -- go buy our new product series Get a grip and look at things for what they are. The 1929 Depression wasn't nearly as bad and detremental as what we've been through in the last 3 years under this administration.
