    It’s been a banner week for Apple. With Apple’s announcement of Q1 2012 results, the company is now apparently worth more than Greece.

    In the same week, the President of the United States invoked the late Steve Jobs and Apple in his Congressionally-mandated State of the Union address.

    Just a few hours later, in the GOP response to the President’s speech, Governor Mitch Daniels also played the Steve Jobs card, saying “The late Steve Jobs — what a fitting name he had — created more of them than all those stimulus dollars the President borrowed and blew.”

    Partisanship aside, certainly Apple has created a lot of jobs over the years. But today, most of the jobs created by Apple are not American jobs, they’re sweatshop-style jobs for miserable, overworked workers in China.

    Is this Change you can believe in? I believe its all ********* Voters bough nothing but ********* on Obamas campaign promises. He did promise to create jobs and keep Jobs in America. G.E Went to China and now Apple went to China. The question the Republicans should ask the Voters? ARE YOU WORSE OFF NOW, THEN YOU WERE 4 YEARS AGO? When Bush left office unemployment was at 7.3 now its over 9. Gas was under $2 a gallon its now over $3 a gallon. Food Prices have soared under Obamas watch. Clothing is more expensive then Bush was President. More people lost their homes under Obamas watch. Hes not making things better hes making things worse!
