Any problem with it would be because he is showing apparent favoritism towards Apple. Why step in to defend Apple when he wouldn't do the same for any of the phone Apple got banned?

So what? Obama has never been on ;buy American' bandwagon....and Motorola is n American company as well....and they actually do manufacture their products in the US....many of them anyway....

Of course the whole 'buy American', economic nationalism thing is harmful and misguided, and the idea that 'countries compete with each other' is complete nonsense, but that's a discussion for another day....

It is extremely difficult to debate a fool. The only way one can win such a debate is by proving to be a bigger fool. In the end we are diminished by having read this thread.

The only real way to win is to refuse to play. It was true for Matthew Broderick, it's true for us.

Fixed it for ya Very Happy "i'll also explain:

See, we are (Americans that is) lazy and inflexible SOB's. When it comes to tapping a willing labor pool to put a product like an iPhone together, it doesn't exist here.
China adapts quickly to meet demand or lack thereof. They have a vast workforce to pull from. We whine and complain about perceived deplorable working conditions overseas and if we attempted to build an iPhone here you would never buy it anyway. "Made in America" in this case may mean a 5k phone that trickles off the assembly line to masses of angry people that need their newest phone NOW!!!

Wait... were you actually just justifying big corporate greed that leeches off of slave labor overseas and undervalues American labor because Americans are lazy, whiny, and deserve to be screwed?

Me? Naw Laughing
Was my Steve Jobs impersonation convincing enough? Laughing

Seriously, those jobs aren't coming back. We don't want them unless we get paid $70 an hour, massive healthcare benefits and a fat pension after 20 years. Some call it greed, others call it survival I guess because your competitor is doing the same thing. Nice guys go out of business...he he he!!! Paranoid

going to get hated for this post...lol!
