Non-Manufacturer Farah Bashes Jobs Council For Not Lack of Manufacturing Experience
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Joseph Farah is simply deseperate to attack positively everything President Obama does.

Farah's March 2 WorldNetDaily column is devoted to attacking the members of Obama's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, smearing them as "a rogue's gallery of people woefully ill-equipped with experience in actually creating jobs the old-fashioned way -- by making stuff."

It gets more absurd as Farah details  the resume of every member of the council one by one, then huffs that they have no manufacturing experience. For instance:

Steve Case is the chairman of Revolution, a holding company that oversees multiple companies, which include Zipcar, LivingSocial and Everyday Health. He is also chairman of the Case Foundation, a private family foundation he established in 1997 with his wife, Jean. Case co-founded America Online in 1985. (Manufacturing experience: Zero.)

Apparently, creating a service that served as the training wheels for millions of Americans on the Internet -- and without whom many of them, it can be presumed, would not have gotten their first exposure to Farah's website -- counts for nothing.

Other non-manufacturers Farah attacks include the CEO of a major railroad, the CEO of Southwest Airlines, and the chief operating officer at Facebook. The CEO of Facebook, Farah grudgingly concedes, has "some" manufacturing experience.

Of course, by the same standard, Farah doesn't manufacture anything either -- which hardly gives him standing to criticize others for not pumping out widgets or whatever. And how many jobs has he created in the past couple years? None that he has seen fit to brag about that we can recall.
