Obama = FDR = War With N. Korea?
Let's see, Obama is compared to FDR all the time. We're in a financial mess. Bailouts didn't work for FDR, but war did.
You see, there are lots of jobs being done in China that could be done here, though at a higher cost. War with N. Korea would make China choose a side, and they'd probably choose to side with N. Korea, which may cause us to impose trade sanctions against China. This could lead to more jobs stateside since we could not get our goods from China.
Protectionist policies are a staple of the Dems, and what better reason to put them in place?
I work for a company that offshores a lot of stateside work to China. The recent saber rattling with N. Korea has some of us wondering if this is still prudent. I don't think it was ever prudent in the first place, but I digress. Maybe its time to hedge our bets stateside.
Hmmm... End of the recession using war just like FDR did?
