John Sigler’s email continues to make a fool of him — this time the email (which I haven’t seen) criticizes the Governor for his overseas trips. Really? Sigler clearly missed the fact that one of the real growth areas in American jobs is importing them from overseas. Still, it is a good bet that Sigler’s email provides no clues as to the places in Delaware where the Governor should be visiting to help bring in new jobs. The man is clearly not supposed to be making sense — just fine-tuning his manufactured outrage. The Governor provided a choice response though:
“The Governor’s trips to Korea and India are about jobs in Delaware for Delawareans. Mr. Sigler should explain to the hundreds of employees of Harim in Sussex County – workers who almost lost their jobs — why he thinks the Governor should not have gone to Korea to show Harim’s leaders what a great workforce and poultry industry we have in Delaware. Or Mr. Sigler can explain to 100 employees of Bilcare in Delaware City why the Governor shouldn’t meet in India with the leaders of that innovative pharmaceutical packaging and materials company. Or Mr. Sigler should explain to Delaware’s current and future technology workers why the Governor should not pitch Delaware to 1500 representatives of the Indian IT industry, which has a growing number of employees in the U.S. Economic development in the modern world doesn’t occur sitting at a desk. You have to work for it and that’s what the Governor is doing.”
I’d bet that the Governor wanted to add to this: “If Delaware Liberal isn’t having any of your shenanigans, don’t come shopping that shit at my door. Good DAY, sir!”
Sheesh. I bet Sigler is paid a pretty penny for this idiocy.
