Campaigns proclaim hats, buttons and signs made in America

Washington (CNN) – She's a "grand old flag" and that's exactly why the two men running for president want you to know that all of their official campaign paraphernalia was made in the good old USA.

Those "I bark for Barack" car magnets.

Made in the USA.

    What a fake!!! Harry Reid is just being dramatic for show. Give me a break, none of this has ever bothered Reid before or any Democrat, this is just to push one more time that Obama is anti-outsourcing so people will vote for Obama. If Obama were seriously against outsourcing jobs he would not, not, not accept money from anyone that works for any company, bank, designer that has been quilty of outsourcing. Harry Reid has never cared before, I wish he would be more sincere and stop this dramatics.

    I read that Ralph Lauren is a prominent donor to Obama and to the Democratic National Committee and Michelle Obama wore Ralph Lauren to a Farewell State Dinner with Queen Elizabeth in London and Ralph Lauren is guilty of outsourcing jobs. Is Harry Reid going to demand monies be returned to Ralph Lauren and is he going to get dramatic over Michelle's wearing of Ralph Lauren. No!!!! of course not because Harry Reid and Democrats are being fake, dramatic to win the votes of those upset over losing their jobs to outsourcing. Let's see Obama return every dollar to anyone guillty of outsourcing jobs and let's see Michelle stop wearing any clothing, jewelry, phone, etc... not made in the USA ( I believe that includes J.Crew).

    How fitting. The nation that essentially started and lead the industrial revolution has been reduced to proclaiming joyously that insipid political paraphernalia is boosting our manufacturing sector. What better symbology could one ask for in terms of illustrating just how damaged our political culture and systems are and how much damage they a re doing to our society, economy and governance? Kudos to everyone who helped make this happen. It is truly a golden age in 'Murka.

    Everything should be made in America... When I shop, I buy AMERICA. And you know what, all of the NO-NAME brands are made in America – which means, Big Corps are overseas!! The "No-Name" brands WORK!!!

    Buy America!!

    Who cares. The amount of jobs exported by the likes of Mitt, far exceeds the few jobs created for making campaign bottons and banners. Get it right, or don't print it.
