Obamunism! Americans Flee to Canada for Jobs

Just how is that hopey-changey thing working out for ya?  From the Tucson Sentinel:

Usually, you hear stories of people fleeing to America, not the other way around.

But the jittery state of the U.S. economy is driving an increasing number of its citizens to seek better prospects north of the border.

Americans are the latest economic refugees, and they’re heading to Canada…

…Americans make up the second-largest group of temporary workers in Canada, only behind Filipinos, most of whom work as nannies…

It is only a small number of Americans, so far…but, my goodness, what a reversal of fortune?  Land of the Free, Home of the Brave…and off to Canada you go because you can’t get a decent job in the United States.  Not exactly carrying our national goal of allowing people to pursue happiness, now are we?

2012 can’t get here fast enough…

    You’re interpreting this wrong, those stats actually show the exodus of liberals who promised they would move to Canada if George Bush was re-elected….now they finally realize they have to actually work in Canada, it wasn’t as socialist as they had hoped.

    It still amazes me that anyone thinks bams is concerned that any of us have a job. He has done nothing other than destroy jobs with regulations since he has been in office. High unemployment is just a part of the plan.

      They can have 30 MILLION ILLEGAL mexicans, then there would be jobs for everybody here.

    What makes you think that the election of 2012 will make enough significant changes to really make a difference in the unemployment problem and economic crisis in our country? I know an unemployed carpenter who has worked in Canada, but he can’t go back there for another job. The Canadian carpenters are finally willing to go to work for their Canadian contractors. I also know an unemployed painter and a printer. Nothing that any of the politicians are proposing would help any of these men to get a job.

      It’s only when the politicians stop making proposals and promises, and roll back their previous proposals, that these men will start to find work

        cluster, like what proposals and promises? Provide specifics – of proposals and promises and who made them?
