Obama To Campaign At Plant That Outsources

From a bemused Politico:

Obama will visit company with Costa Rica plant

Ben Smith

President Obama will travel to North Carolina tomorrow to stump for the American Jobs Act and to make the case for his agenda in a key swing state. He’s visiting WestStar Precision, a very small company — it reportedly has 25 employees — that makes components for big aerospace companies.

Local Republicans, though, have noticed that the company may not exactly be a poster child for "Made in America."

Its site boasts:

Our new office and manufacturing facility in San Jose, Costa Rica, also has approximately 10,000 sq. ft. with similar equipment as the main office. This facility is designed for high volume production to support our international and domestic clients…

Note that this detail was not uncovered by the news media. If Mr. Obama were a Republican, such things would be checked out by the press as a matter of routine.

UPDATE: The company began hiring in Costa Rica, the News & Observer reported in 2004, to "take advantage of low labor costs.”

Well, okay then. As long as they have a good excuse. Hopefully, they are unionized down there. Or there will be hell to pay.

Even so, you really have to wonder who is in charge of picking Obama’s campaign stops? Though, to be fair, it is probably next to impossible to find a company in the US that doesn’t ‘outsource’ these days.

Thanks at least in part to unions and Democrat policies in general.

    He has run out of cronies who don’t outsource, so he made an easy decision. Scrath the back of another money-man.

    Bonus: stick his thumb in the eye of America.

    I’ve read that the top executive of this WestStar is a nerobama campaign donor and has given a couple thousand to the manchild candidate’s campaign coffers. So it seems like this is the scenario:

    nerobama is travelling to a plant, owned by a campaign donor, which has outsourced jobs to a foreign country, in order to advocate the inclusion of new taxes in a bill that hasn’t been written but must be passed by Congress immediately, while charging this trip to the taxpayers as part of his “Jobs Bill” campaign. What kind of dope are these people smoking? How in God’s green earth can anybody report this “news story” seriously, its ludicrous!

    Maybe we could force Obummer to campaign for the Chinese and other competitors of America. They’d go bankrupt in six months. Everything he touches goes goes to hell.

    A President that may or may not be a U.S. citizen, travels in a bus made in Canada, to an American company that that outsources jobs to Costa Rica. ~Yep, that seems about right these days….

    Let us not forget that Jeffery Immelt is his Jobs Czar and has moved some
    G E plants to China. Next we will see the prez jet to China to check on the
    progress made in the switch.
