Republicans and Democrats railed Thursday about the U.S. Olympic Committee's decision to dress the U.S. team in Chinese manufactured berets, blazers and pants while the American textile industry struggles economically with many U.S. workers desperate for jobs.
Must be an election year if both Republicans and Democrats are outraged. Oh that is right it is an election year. Normally Republicans and Democrats LOVE that everything is made in China. In fact it is them that have allowed it to happen. Very surprising now they would be so upset.
I am so upset. I think the Olympic committee should be ashamed of themselves. I think they should be embarrassed. I think they should take all the uniforms, put them in a big pile and burn them and start all over again," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev HAHAHAHAHA Harry Reid…What a joker. Hey Harry China has been manipulating their currency for years…What have you done about it? What is that Harry? You say NOTHING has been done about it. Well isn’t that kinda hypocritical for you to be crying your crocodile tears when really these problems are your fault.
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters at her weekly news conference that she's proud of the nation's Olympic athletes, but "they should be wearing uniforms that are made in America." Hey Nancy…Have you been to the mall in the last 20 years. EVERYTHING is made in China and you are responsible. Where is the proper leadership????
House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said simply of the USOC, "You'd think they'd know better." You would think John Boehner would know better too. But he doesn’t.
"It is not just a label, it's an economic solution," said Rep. Steve Israel, D-N.Y. "Today there are 600,000 vacant manufacturing jobs in this country and the Olympic committee is outsourcing the manufacturing of uniforms to China? That is not just outrageous, it's just plain dumb. It is self-defeating." YEAH Fake outrage….There is nothing better. This is Oscar worthy stuff you are seeing right here. Tom Hanks couldn’t give a better performance.
