Chutzpah in action

From The Gadflyer, it's amusing to note that as the RNC talks up Bush's economic plan, and how we're finally turning the corner towards real job growth, these same people are outsourcing their own flipping fundraising call centers!!!

While the Internet provides fertile ground for spoofs on Bush's job being outsourced to India, his task is certainly being made a lot easier by Indians. Until recently, HCL eServe, the business process outsourcing (BPO) arm of Shiv Nadar-promoted HCL Technologies, handled Bush's nationwide fundraising campaign over the telephone.

Combine that with the piece over at the Daily Kos showing how Bush's rhetoric at the Timkin Company is Canton, OH was more style than substance, as they've outsourced also, and closed the plant down, and Bush starts looking like a real Typhoid Mary in regards to job growth.
