Not much to say about this. It pretty much says it all.

    That’s perfect. Bush?s jobs record is dismal. Manufacturing has lost 2.8 million jobs since July 2000. Most of those are in telecom, semiconductor and aerospace and have probably gone “offshore.” A report by Criterion Economics by the NMRC (http://www.newmillenniumresearch.org/archives) said 1.2 million jobs would be created in the next 20 years if the Bush administration made broadband a national priority. His FCC hasn?t done a thing. It has a bunch of rulemakings pending on what broadband is and how it should be treated. Bush needs to crack the whip and make the FCC do something.

    Maybe the reason he hasn’t cracked the whip on this issue is that he and his cronies haven’t figured out yet how to “offshore” jobs like these — that is, jobs which have to actually be done on or in U.S. soil.
