FTA: The Republican National Committee (RNC) used a call center based in the Philippines to hold a media conference attacking President Obama's economic record, the Chicago Sun-Times reported today.

Well, at least the Democrats have real Americans calling me for donations. Unless Indians can speak with a elderly New England accent asking for $750 off the top.

/No, my pockets aren't that deep.
//Also I don't respond to people calling me first, asking for credit card numbers to "donate" with.

I don't know how the Democrats got my number, but it pissed me off, as I'm registered as an Independent in Arizona. They were calling me every day in 2008 on my cell phone. They never asked for $750, though. Maybe they have our credit scores next to our phone numbers.

"It's hard to imagine anything more hypocritical than the RNC making calls about U.S. unemployment from a Verizon foreign call center."



hmm.

*flips through RNC playbook*

ah, here it is! page 321. it says that i'm to 'blame the liberal media' and then mention something about taxes driving jobs overseas. there's a note here in the margins...something about 'mention socialisms'.

well that doesn't help very much at all.

Yes. Along with Indonesia, Kenya, Iran, North Korea, China and Saudi Arabia.

Its sad that after 4 years of using that joke, they still haven't figured out Obama said there were 60 states, not 57. He said he'd been to 57 with 3 left.

I thought that was on page 1. And 2. And 4. And 8.

Um, the lead GOP candidate made all the money that he didn't inherit buying US companies, destroying them, firing everyone and sending their jobs to China and India.

Bush gave tax tax breaks to companies that outsourced jobs and gave tax shelters to companies that did business overseas.

farking over the American worker is what the GOP does. That's all they do! They can't be bargained with. They can't be reasoned with. They don't fell pity or fear or remorse. And they absolutely will not stop EVER! Until every American job is gone and they they blame Obama for it!

there's a helpful chart in appendex 3 that shows how everything everywhere is Obama's fault.

Did you perhaps piss somebody just before then? Giving out a person's cell number to telemarketers and politicians is a petty, childish, and very passive-aggressive method of revenge but damn if it isn't effective.

I completely concur with that statement. Too bad we don't have more companies who try to balance keeping workers on the payroll, even when times are bad. Seen varioius examples of such cool companies.

Which is horseshiat, there are thousands of Americans who would love to work at call centers and the fact that call center workers can't speak English is an enormous problem.
 
2012-05-06 07:09:45 PM
Well duh. If they were going to hire American call centers, that would help the economy, and that would get Obama re-elected! Totally counterproductive.

CSB

Tried to order Hustler from my cable company last month. For some strange reason, my internet order wasnt going through, so I had to manually call them (I also wanted to add HBO and Showtime). I call them, get some call center in India who I am having a problem understanding. It was a female, and that made me a bit uncomfortable asking a female to add an adult channel. Anyways, she kept on saying "Howard? Howard?". She didn't know what Hustler was. I had to spell the name out over the phone for her to add it.

/CSB over

2012-05-06 07:13:57 PM
This is really, really funny, in a sad sort of way.

I want to get a call from someone that speaks English 'off' while clearly reading from a script in a passionless voice. At least robotcalls are expected and can be hung up on without a second thought..

Is the problem that Democrats still have a conscience? I know that Republican play to win, but they seem to be walking over all kinds of lines.

I want to blame the tea party, but they are patsys there has to be more to it. They are just believers who did not know when to stop drinking the flavor-aid.

When did people like the Koch brothers purchase the Republican party in an attempted return to feutalism?

which, honestly, is probably your best bet at this point. you really can't defend the GOP anymore. their actions are reprehensible and the hypocrisy too large to ignore.

You guys missed the underlying point of the article and why Verizon was mentioned so much.

Verizon Wireless isn't a union shop while AT&T Mobility is. The CWA is the union that represents labor at AT&T, so the CWA making digs at Verizon is all about attacking a company that has avoided unionization.

Oh, and the wireless division of Verizon uses almost all US call centers, unlike AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. Customers hate talking to non-English speakers - why do you think Verizon adds hundreds of thousands of new customers each quarter? You don't piss them off by cutting corners. I would note that Verizon's call centers tend to be in lower cost parts of the country (Nebraska, Tennessee).

Um no. The point of the article had nothing to do with the specific carrier. It was that the GOP outsourced jobs to promote itself while attacking non-GOPers for not creating domestic jobs fast enough. That's either hypocritical or ironic or both.
