Bush continues to harbour Microsoft, just as he always have.
"Mr. Bush, reiterating a theme of his trip, strongly defended the outsourcing
of American jobs to India as the reality of a global economy, and said that
the United States should instead focus on India as a vital new market for
American goods ... 'The classic opportunity for our American farmers and
entrepreneurs and small businesses to understand is there is a 300

can make a product they want, that it becomes viable,'"
