The Sun wakes up about Obama and jobs

Every election has its consequences. In the 2008 presidential election, the country got the Obamacare health plan that is still not supported by a clear majority of Americans. In the presidential election of 2012, with an unemployment rate at 7.9 percent, the country rejected a proven private job creator and re-elected President Obama, who never created a private job in his life. Now The Sun's opinion pages that were in virtual lock step supporting President Obama's reelection bid are all of a sudden having an epiphany, a revelation if you will, about the lack of jobs in our country for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) graduates ("Where are the jobs?" May 25).

And even more astonishing is the writer's questioning (albeit very gingerly) the Gang of Eight's immigration bill that is allowing more foreign STEM workers in the country even though Americans with STEM degrees cannot find work. Just maybe the pro amnesty media is beginning to listen to the Gang of Eight immigration bill opponents that have been shouting for months about focusing on Americans finding jobs before any consideration is given to foreign (illegal or legal) workers.
