GOP Candidates on Manufacturing: Still Waiting to Hear
So far, 8 candidates have declared their candidacy for the Republican Presidential nomination. In speeches across the country, Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Mitt Romney, and Rick Santorum have declared their intention to run for the highest office in the land.
Polls clearly show that American want action on manufacturing jobs. So how many times did the word “manufacturing” show up in these speeches? 0. None. Not a single candidate mentioned the loss in manufacturing jobs or a plan to create more of those jobs here.
Of course, if the President keeps silent on the issue as well, will the American people get to hear any debate on the issue?
