Manufacturing Jobs: 9 Months to Failure January 14, 2016

Posted by geoff in News.

Our president made a promise at the Democratic National Convention in 2012. Yes, he promised to create 1 million manufacturing jobs in 4 years. It was a big promise and an important promise, a promise which would have required an aggressive multi-faceted approach, rather than a few scattered job training programs.

And it was, almost needless to say, a promise that our president had no intention and no capability to keep. Here’s how he’s doing:


With 80% of his time gone, he’s made it 40% of the way to his goal. In nine months his time will be up and another big promise will be broken.

Lefty sites are all crowing the big wins of this Greatest President Evahhh!

In Connecticut you would not believe the stuff we’re hearing about how great everything is, and people are not leaving because of taxes, etc blah blah blahhh.

You’d think they would have a little less gall given that the deadline for success (“Recovery Summer” back in 2010) long since passed.

Dem politicians in this state ran a childish insulting game with GE, and now GE is leaving for Boston, of all places. Are CT pols smart enough to do a gut-check and look honestly at what went wrong?

Nope, they just continue to say and do stupid insulting things at GE’s retreating back. We don’t have reality-based adults at the helm. Just petty, mean little femmes. So sick of this crap.

“GE’s not going anywhere, they’re just bluffing! Ignore them.”

(GE announces that they are leaving)

“Those liars never had any intention of staying in CT, right from the get-go!”
