    "The President found the question "interesting" because "industry tells me that they don't have enough highly skilled engineers."

    The White House sent out spokespersons to defend the President by talking about how not enough Americans are getting engineering degrees.

    My immediate question was: How many Americans with engineering degrees don't have an engineering job?

    Amazingly just this afternoon, Dr. Steve Camarota of the Center for Immigration Studies has published a report that answers the question.

    We will talk more about the meaning of these stats in our weekly webcast at 3:30 p.m. (Eastern) Thursday.. But chew on the numbers.

    U.S.-BORN INDIVIDUALS WITH ENGINEERING DEGREES (under age 66) (based on most recent American Community Survey by the Obama Administration itself)

    101,000 -- U.S. engineers looking for a job who can't find any work at all

    244,000 -- U.S. engineers who have dropped completely out of the labor market
    1,470,000 -- U.S. engineers who are working but no longer as engineers

    it is one of Obama's objectives to make sure the White Man can't find jobs. Right? if too many white guys find work, then they will vote for Romney to insure they wont get fired !

    Many tens of thousands of engineering jobs out there for qualified people.

    thats how liberals want it,,,,high unemployment, blame the republicans,,,etc, etc. If employment goes back to around 6%, Obama is done! why? cause working people are in fear of a far left Democrat who would eventually increase their taxes that will wind up in the Dem's pockets so they can buy cars,boats, throw expensive parties, Hawaiian Vacations, bribe cronies,,etc,,etc.
