    So, Obama isn't outsourcing jobs?

    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are

    No

    The US will manufacture all of the parts, put the parts in a big box, send the box to India where final assembly will occur, where the motorcycles will be sold in India not in the US, net gain to the US

    Did no one hear that Obama has always wanted to attended the Indian Festival of Light, and low and behold that is going on now.

    Well, I think you could legitimately say that the motorcycle assembly jobs is outsourcing. If they did not assemble them in India, they'd be assembled here in the US.

    In any case, NONE of this is a direct result of Obama's trip. The trip is simply being used to announce the deal. The trip, in and of itself, did not cause ANY of this to happen.
