when gore courted asian bhuddist donors in california,  he was scolded. but bush took money by anti-castro cubans in florida. exporting manufacturing jobs to mexico is okay, but not clerical jobs to china?
it seems very racist. but the US republican party is filled with racists.

if they export those same jobs to european [NATO] countries would they be better? if that isn't racist what is?  but then they say it's COMMUNIST  china... explain the prejudice against India /pakistan/ Bagladesh? none of which is communist.  so form of government isn't really the issue, but rather racism.

FWIW, it had little to do with money coming from Buddhist monks.  The monks were "middle men" in an illegal fundraising operation.  It would take awhile to explain, but, briefly, there is a limit to how much an individual or organization can donate to a presidential campaign in the U.S.  This organization went way, way over the limit.  The Democratic Party ignored the law and funneled this money into the presidential campaign anyway, and tried to say it went elsewhere.  

Both political parties probably do this sort of thing, but the Democrats happened to get caught.  

As for exporting jobs, the Republicans are all for it (and they are correct, according to most economists).  There might be politics involved in exporting a specific type of job, but that's the exception.
