Obama: Going online costs jobs

In the 2 1/2 years President Barack Obama (D) has been in office unemployment has risen to 9.2 %.  And Obama knows why.   

In addition to President George W. Bush, bad luck, the Japanese tsunami, the president of the United States once again  targets automation. 


OBAMA: One of the challenges in terms of rebuilding our economy is - businesses have gotten so efficient, that, uh, when was the last time somebody went to a bank teller? Instead of using an ATM. Or, used a travel agent instead of going online. A lot of jobs out that that used to require people now have become automated.

So why is the president out there campaigning in  a 40 multi million tax $$$ Canadian built bus entourage outfitted with the most up to date technology instead of a horse and buggy which would provide more jobs?  The latter would also leave less of a carbon footprint--or as Rush Limbaugh describes it 


"That's just not a carbon footprint, that's a carbon boot print from our first green president. This is the kind of hypocrisy that makes Al Gore blush."

But speaking of automation and the president you can read all about Obama's Economic Bus Tour (sic!) online at the president' website. How many jobs have people lost because of it?
