    How's THAT for creating jobs again Mittens?

    I wonder how much Romney makes while 13,000 hit unemployment lines?

    Ya Mittens is all about the jobs...

    Did you miss this bit of new Huggies?

    American Airlines Shows The Corruption Of Obama's GM Bailout - Forbes

    "The White House Auto Task Force and its Czar spared UAW the dismay and outrage of renegotiated union pay scales, revised work rules, and loss of defined-benefit pensions that American Airlines union members face. American’s anticipated fifteen percent job loss is about the same as GM’s, but without a dime of taxpayer money. Obama did not save GM jobs, he saved UAW pay scales and pensions. UAW members left their jobs with a $25,000 new car and $20,000 cash. (Chrysler employees left with much more). Laid-off American Airlines pilots, mechanics and flight attendants will likely leave with little or nothing."

    Sure no problemo... should have included it in the OP..

    Romney

    No ...he just gets income from his former firm. He doesn't have to lift a finger to profit from the misery of others any more.

    Back in the early seventies I had a foreign car repair shop at 83rd and Aurora.

    Now I am the "internet tough guy" at 125th and Aurora. At least I get paid for it..ask any local gang banger, pimp or drug dealer...

    Thanks, I'll review the link.

    So, when someone leaves a firm, they should give up any and all future compensation because that firm might do something you disagree with? Interesting concept.

    EDIT:

    clicked the link and this is the title of the piece (I noticed you avoided posting it in your link...)
    Romney’s Firm Instructs American Airlines to Sack 13,000 Workers

    It's not 'Romney's firm'. He used to work there, but not now. Calling it 'his firm' is simply a political attack.

    Do you know that the Airline Industry has never shown a profit?


    Never.
