Announces "Bold" New Job Plan for India:
A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS
Karl Rove has been using the word "bold" lately as spin to cover up the dreadful reality of most of Bush's proposals in recent weeks, including his deficit time bomb of an economic plan.
So it may be no surprise that Bush has launched, surreptitiously, a "bold" new jobs programs for telemarketers in India. Of course, this "bold" program means that these 75 jobs have been lost to American workers in need.
And what will this "band of young and enthusiastic [Indian] fundraisers " be doing for the Bush GOP Cartel? Why raising money for the Republican coffers, of course.
Okay, you think BuzzFlash is making this up. How could a man in a leadership position in the White House export 75 jobs that American workers might get paid for -- at a time of great economic need in the U.S. -- to India? Especially (Ah, the sweet cruel irony) when the project is to raise more cash for the Republicans. Uh, BuzzFlash can't mean that the Bush Cartel is engaging in rank "stab the American Worker in the back" hypocrisy, right!
Ah, but BuzzFlash wouldn't call the Republican Party the Grand Hypocrisy Party (GHP) all the time if it weren't worthy of the name, would BuzzFlash?
So here's the proof.
According to a January 31, 2003, article in a New Delhi business publication called the "Business Standard," the Bush Cartel has retained HCL eServe, the business process outsourcing arm of the India based HCL Technologies. "HCL eServe has put in place a team of 75 people to work on the project out of its call centres in Noida and Gurgaon"
Now, let's get to the bottom line, as George W. would want us too:
"These operators are required to call up people in the US seeking their support for President George W Bush and a donation for the Republican cause."
Ain't that Grand, as in the Grand Hypocrisy Party!
Working out of a software technology park in Noida, not far from New Delhi, these 75 telemarketers may be joined by additional workers if they raise lots of cash for the GHP (which means more jobs lost to Americans).
So the Bush Cartel is saving a few pennies by hiring a firm in India to use Indian telemarketers to raise money for Bush and the Grand Hypocrisy Party (GHP) to better enable Bush and the GHP to "inform" American workers about all that the Republicans and Bush are doing to increase jobs in America. Ain't that Grand!
Now if ever there were a prototype example of the Bush Cartel's Grand Hypocrisy Party at Work, this would be it.
Not that BuzzFlash in anyway begrudges residents of India from enjoying a growth in job opportunities, but it does seem a bit -- shall we say -- sly, cynical and disgusting for the Bush Cartel to be exporting jobs to raise money for the GHP.
But it's not the first telemarketing/fundraising betrayal of American workers by the GHP. According to the article in the "Business Standard" of India, "The Republican contract comes on the heels of a successful anti-abortion campaign run by HCL eServe for a US politician."
What will be the next Grand Hypocrisy Party contract for this firm in India? Maybe the Bush Cartel will give the telemarketing firm (at the expense of American workers) a contract to raise money for the widows and orphans fund that our nation's "first hugger" -- as the Dim Son likes to think of himself -- will surely be creating for relatives of our military personnel killed in the pending Iraq War.

On February 19, the UPI Capital Comment carried an RNC response to the article claiming that Republicans had hired 75 telemarketers in India to do telephone fundraising in the U.S. for the Republicans and Bush:
Just one important point to note in response to the RNC statement, neither the original Indian Business Standard article nor the BuzzFlash.com account of it ever mentioned the RNC. Read the RNC denial carefully. It doesn't rule out that a Republican consultant hired HCL, or that a separate Republican campaign fund (other than the RNC) retained them. The statement is also in the present tense. Might we ask if the RNC or any Republican fundraising committee in the United States has retained, now or in the past, HCL to fundraise using telemarketers in India? BuzzFlash would like to hear the answer to that question, not just from the RNC.
