On January 30, President Obama showed a lot of guts and took unscripted live questions from Americans. A Ms. Jennifer Weddel asked the president why so many companies hired and brought in foreign workers under the H-1B visa program to take American jobs, when there were so many Americans like her husband out of work.
Ms Weddel's husband is a system engineer and has been out of work for 3 years. Few Americans are told by the media that over 1.8 million Americans with engineering degrees can not find work. President Obama clearly seemed surprised to hear about her husband being out of work after he touted the need for companies to bring in more engineers via the H1b visa program.
Obama asked Ms Weddel to send him her husbands resume. I thought it was good for Obama to do and was happy to hear him taking live questions from real Americans.
When I watched Jon Stewart's show the next day he ridiculed Ms Weddel in a most unfair way and almost made her seem racist for asking Obama to fetch and carry her a job for her husband, and most importantly, never made the SLIGHTEST mention of her main question, which is why so many companies are hiring foreign H1B visa workers that then take the place of American workers.
Stewart likes to come across as hip and cool and is always sticking it to the "man".
When it comes to lying to America about immigration, and doing the propoganda work of large companies that continue to hire cheaper and younger foreign workers that never want the truth told on immigration, then clearly, Jon Stewart, IS THE MAN!
here is stewarts clip, , notice how they cut her off and left out her main question of whu companies were not hiring unemployed Americans
