Conservative priorities vs. liberal priorities; a real world demonstration.
There have been two reactions to the US team’s Olympic opening ceremony uniforms, designed by Ralph Lauren. One is substantive and policy-based, with an eye to protecting the American worker. The other is stupid.
See if you can tell which is which.
Sen. Harry Reid is ripping that the U.S. Olympic team’s opening ceremony uniforms are made in China — so much so that he’d rather see American athletes show up for the London ceremonies in original Olympian nude than sport threads made by the United States’ biggest economic competitor.
“Put ‘em in a pile and burn ‘em,” Reid said of the uniforms, which an ABC report revealed Wednesday are designed by U.S. designer Ralph Lauren, but made in China. “If they have to wear nothing but a singlet that says ‘USA,’ that’s what they should do.”
There are too many Americans in the textile manufacturing industry suffering because of outsourcing to China, Reid explained, to allow for the Olympic team’s uniforms to be made anywhere but in the United States.
“I think the Olympic committee should be ashamed of themselves,” Reid said.
The morning troupe at Fox & Friends took a few moments out of reporting news stories on Wednesday to, strangely enough, mock the U.S. Olympic team.
Reacting to an opening ceremony uniform by U.S. fashion designer Ralph Lauren, co-host Steve Doocy asked why they’re wearing berets instead of baseball caps or cowboy hats.
“Or why not do something very American and go topless?” he added. “Why not snap-backs featuring an eagle feverishly devouring Jerry Lewis?”
“Is this the new American trend now?” co-host Gretchen Carlson asked. “And you have to pronounce [beret] that way, too — that’s the French way.”
“American uniforms should be made by American workers” or “It looks French and you have to pronounce words correctly” — which take is stupid?
