Here's one more, Mark:

"There are jobs Americans aren't doing. ... If you've got a chicken factory, a chicken-plucking factory, or whatever you call them, you know what I'm talking about." --George W. Bush. Tipp City, Ohio, April 19, 2007

Happy 5th of July.

Yeah, and of course his daddy was famous for saying he didn't care whether the jobs in America were making computer chips or making potato chips, just as long as there were jobs. Pretty good bet which one pays better, though.
