    Well, some would say so....

    I live in the Kansas City area and this steel mill had always been a mess.

    Bain bought it and it went under. 750 jobs lost.

    And Obama is pointing the finger at Romney.

    The problem: Romney left Bain two years before the steel mill went under.

    Here is an article that might help shed some light on the subject....

    FAIL: Obama Ad Attacks Romney for Bain Bought Company That Laid People Off

    But there is another major problem with linking the end of GST to Mitt Romney's work with Bain. Romney wasn't with Bain when GST went down. Romney had left Bain Capital in 1999, two years before GST's 2001 collapse.

    But there was at least one guy linked to today's political landscape that was still at Bain when GST went down the tubes. Obama donor and a Bain managing director Jonathan Levine was working at Bain when GST went belly up.

    So, the only person that worked for Bain when GST died was an Obama bundler that raised over $100,000 for Obama.

    Curiously enough, that fact wasn't in the Obama ad video, either.

    Then there's this. Even former Obama economic adviser Steve Rattner thinks the ad is "unfair."

    *****************************

    And when you see what they have to say about Union mandated overtime....it'll make you laugh. We hear the same thing happen all the time at the car plants in Claycomo County. The average worker makes 80 to 100 K per year doing a lot of B.S. jobs to get a certain amount of overtime because of the unions.

    But, lets stay with the fact that Obama runs this ad and somehow thinks they can pin it on Romney.

    Let's see Franco pull his head out of his ass and say something on this one....

    Dupe.

    Well, that is about the extent of his vocab.

    Very interesting period in America's Steel manufacturing history. So what's the point, does the big O feel we should have bailed them out like his union boys or let them fold because they were not competitive in the world market? Perhaps the democratic controlled congress should have put tariffs in place to create an equal playing field, but dam, they through them under the bus along with Bethlehem and rest of the industry? What was the result? the industry modernized, invested in manufacturing technology and became competitive without the government holding their collective hand. In short a Weak and pathetic ad at best with lots of holes to exploit. So whats the point, class warfare.

    Facts have no bearing on what this man says and will say in the upcoming months. The whole theme he's going with is that Romney is one of the wealthy evil people who treats people like unimportant peons. Class warfare is a keystone of his campaign and his agenda.

    Romney gets blamed for 750 but Obama is blameless for the net 1M jobs lost.

    It's an election, and you are calling out a lie in a campaign ad? Where have you been? This shit goes on every election from both sides. Remember Bush vs. Kerry? Can you even come close to counting all the lies that took place in ads for and against both candidates? I'm sure you will now tell me that Romney's people would never lie in an ad about Obama, right?

    It's the "They all do it" defense! You can justify anything Obama does with "They all do it"!

    In fact the ad is a lie. Because that's what leftsts do.
    Romney won't need to lie in any ad because the truth is scary enough.

    The only thing not logical about the situation is that Romney didnt lose the 750 jobs and he's still on the hook for em.
    Obama on the other hand....

    And add the numbers into the equation 750-compared to a million?

    The ides that Obama can run using the "Jobs" platform is ridicules.:cuckoo:

    You're right Obama can't run on his "jobs platform", or his awesome budget, or his ability to unite Americans, he definitely can't run on his record........so what to do?? Oh yea, just try to destroy the other side with lies, he and Axelrod are good at that. :)

    A couple of things....

    Most importantly, Romney is not running on his record as govenor of Mass. He is running on his business credentials. So this hits at the heart of that tact. And while, it has not been shown how he was connected (after all, does he need to have been there....he could have done the damage earlier), it does seem rather silly on Obama's part not to make that connection because it does come across as a lie.

    Secondly, it is interesting that you admit both sides do it. Our resident jackass, Franco seems bent on sainting Obama and his campaign. His posts are a complete projection of his own unwillingness to even consider that Obama might not be the man he'd hoped he would be.
