Lament The Work Of Simple Minds

I've been involved with training programs for many years.  And even I don't know what this means:

"In an apparent attempt to pin blame anywhere but on the Obama administration for the rising unemployment rate, a USA Today item currently carried at Newsmax's MoneyNews.com web site opens by claiming that 'Companies across the country are cutting training programs for new employees, broadening the divide between workers with skills needed to compete in today's economy and those left out, pushing up unemployment rates in the process.'"

Cutting training programs is causing unemployment to worsen?  Is he nuts?  That's the silliest thing I've ever read.

Earth to Forrest Jones: Could it be that America's corporations find there to be less need to train new hires because there is a wealth of talented and fully trained people - by the millions - currently standing idle in those unemployment lines that Barack Obama has created?
