    :lmao: Someone get this to the Romney camp!

    " A new ad from President Obama’s re-election campaign calls Mitt Romney “Outsourcer-in-Chief,” accusing the former businessman and presumptive Republican presidential nominee of overseeing companies that shipped jobs to China and India while leading Bain Capital.

    But while Obama tries to hit Romney on this issue, records show that Obama’s campaign is using a travel booking company this year that have operations in India and China.:eusa_whistle:

    Federal Election Commission reports show that Obama for America made numerous payments to the corporate travel company Egencia as recently as May. They were made to Egencia’s Bellevue, Washington office.

    Egencia is a corporate travel division of the online travel company Expedia and, according to its website, has call center operations “around the world.”

    so, if Romney had anything even remotely to do with outsourcing, he should be shot at sunrise... but if 'the one' has anything even remotely to do with outsourcing, 'oh well' is the libtard reaction.

    fucking hypocrites.

    Lots of companies have operations in other countries. Are these business based soley in those nations or are they airlines and hospitality groups based here with offices abroad for ease of business?

    ETA - Expedia is an American company after all.

    Well, I am a lib and there is a huge difference between a company sending all customer service call floor jobs over seas when they are primarily dealing with problems that occur and originate in the US and having folks on the ground in a foreign country who know that the mubai hilton is under renovations so the mubai raddison would be a better and more secure locaton for a political visit.
