    "In engineering, there is a term for this: GIGO, Garbage In/Garbage Out. Clearly, the president is getting the word from the wrong kind of people – industry leaders in search of cheap foreign labor, armed with large campaign contributions."

    Why Obama Doesn't Have a Clue?

    Look who he has been surrounded by his entire life (at least the parts we know of).

    Guess the GI/GO theory nails it.

    First, supposing that we accept that Obama's statement was clueless, this would be a result, not a cause, of his own cluelessness. This is certainly not an argument why Obama is clueless.

    Secondly, Obama said that the demand for engineers was "huge". the CIS disputes this on the grounds that the the unemployment rate among engineers isn't as far below the overall unemployment rate as are other categories. The statistic CIS proposes is a horrible measure of demand. Ask yourself, is there more demand for telemarketers or locomotive engineers in the US? Most of us would say the former, since there are several telemarketers for every locomotive engineer. However, last year the unemployment rate was about 10,000% higher among telemarketers (What’s the Unemployment Rate for Your Profession? - Real Time Economics - WSJ).

    Unemployment is not a good measure of demand. It's caused more by inefficiencies in the market, such as a recent change in demand, than in demand in the absolute sense.

    HE is the most clueless president ever. From redesigning the presidential seal during his campaign, to his "guns and religion" quip, to just about any pronouncement he's made he shows he is totally out of touch with how most Americans think.
    Obama didnt grow up in AMerica and was surrounded by Leftists who proclaimed America was the source of all problems. He just doesn't get it.

    Gallup Finds Unemployment Climbing to Nine Percent in February
    February 20, 2012 – Unemployment in the U.S. rose to nine percent in mid-February, up from 8.3 percent a month earlier, according to a new Gallup survey. The polling company said this suggests that it is “premature” to assume the economy will not feature prominently in the 2012 election season.
