ACTUALLY......did you know that Mitt Romney spent 25 years in the real world economy? That's why he understands why jobs come and go. He invested in a lot of companies that specialized in sending jobs done by American workers to low-wage countries like China, India and Mexico. (That's the 'go' part.) He doesn't talk much about the jobs he's created here in America. Romney's outsourcing didn't just happen in the private sector. When he was Governor of Massachusetts, he actually outsourced state jobs to a call center in India. In the 15 years that he was running Bain, a private equity firm, they owned companies that shipped work from the U.S. to overseas call centers and factories making computer components according to the filings with the SEC. The question has come up is this Outsourcing or Offshoring? Not much difference, huh?
This my friends, is part of his economic philosophy. He has also recently said that if he were President he would stand up to China and demand a level playing field for our workers. He said he would direct the Department of Treasury to list China as a currency manipulator, and sanction China for unfair trade practices. Think so, can't wait to see that - well he has made friends there.
There is no doubt that Mitt Romney is hoping for a worse case scenario in the U.S. economy. The Congressional leadership is on Romney's same page. I believe it's not about Mitt Romney - it's about the fact that things will get bad enough that they can throw President Obama under the bus and get rid of him.
As if you didn't know - the GOP want's to get Obama out! They couldn't care less how, or who beats him. Mitt Romney is an etch-a-sketch man, a puppet for his campaign, has a very hard time telling the truth and is doing all he can to buy his way into the White House. He will do or say anything to become President of the U.S. What a sad day that would be. Who in the world convinced him he was presidential material???
I'll always be an American, say the pledge of allegiance and wave "old glory", but I have to find someplace to hide if Romney is elected. HELP!! Maybe he'll deport me back to Ireland.
