Bush had iraq as an excuse and obama is now latching on to b\'lore as an excuse to consolidate his position as president. the finance of the world is in shambles and it is not going to improve for another 2 or 3 yrs. obama is not a magician to set things right. the financial mess is going to take time to clear up but till then he has to do something to show his country that all the tough talking he did regarding outsourcing and giving more jobs to the locals than to outsiders like indians was not hogwash but that he really meant it. right now this is the safest thing he can do.

There is no question of fair or unfair on obama.Obama may not have magic wand to mend the ills of his Country in short span of time.But he shoul have sound economic policy to revive and create employment by finding out the loope holes. without harming the present structure &policies.Let America competite with India. Let America have good check &balance on its corporate giants and financial institution.Instead,the present action will have adverse effect on its economy.

YES, BY WITHDRAWING TAX SOPS TO OUTSOURCING FIRMS he only resorted to a very backward move to weaken the corporate profitability of the American corporates and make them inviable and at the same time to excess spend in their own country, by attracting talents from INDIA instead of outsourcing directly from INDIAN companies ,mostly located in Bangalore,in a cost effective way . This policy of OBAMA is like building strength in one hand and losing the strength in the other hand.. I hope the U s corporates bring him to senses soon having already realized teir advantages from outsourcing from India ,which is 10 times cheaper for them for viable operations.

No, As thePresident of USA he has the right to look after the interests of his country , and it is true that Bangalore has been drawing a lot of money from USA, which would have remained there had the Americans got the job, or if they were able to handle the job withot depending on Indians./
