Romney hasn't been at Bain for how long now?

Nothing to see here.

He is going to be tied to it because he used to run/work for Bain. Either way it sucks.

When was the last time Romney worked at Bain and are you ticked our/Obama's jobs czar's outsourcing to China?

Huffington Post: Obama Jobs Council Packed With Outsourcing Companies

There’s General Electric, whose CEO Jeffrey Immelt has served as chair of the advisory board since January 2011. Since Immelt took over GE in 2001, the company has lost 37,000 American jobs, and added 25,000 jobs overseas, according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Some of those U.S. job losses are inflated by the company’s sale of NBC to Comcast in 2009.

Chris Townsend, political director of the United Electrical Workers labor union that represents roughly 5,500 GE employees in the U.S., said the company has closed more than 30 U.S. plants since Obama took office. GE would not confirm the number.

Another company represented on the jobs board is Boeing, whose CEO, James McNerney, also chairs the President’s Export Council, the principal advisory committee on international trade. The aerospace giant has shed over 14,000 American jobs since 2008, according to a recent report by Public Campaign, a campaign reform advocacy group.

Since McNerney became CEO in 2005, he has done little to reverse the trend of outsourcing established more than a decade ago, according to Stan Sorscher, who worked as a physicist at Boeing from 1980 to 2000. Sorscher remains in regular contact with Boeing employees as a representative for the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace labor union.

Obama's Jobs Czar, Jeffery Immelt, as CEO of G.E. has sent more jobs overseas than any other CEO in the history of America.

This started happening when Romney left. Guess how much Bain executives have given to the Obama campaign and other Democratic candidates? In fact one of Obama’s top campaign financiers — Jonathan Lavine — is also managing director at Bain. So perhaps you need to change the title of this thread to 'Obama's Bain Capital closing Illinois Plant'.

Yep, Maobama is making it more profitable using regulations, taxes and breaucratic bs, to move a plant to the other side of the world and the libs blame Romney. Go figure.

Liberals are such fucking crybabies. Shut the fuck up already

When Obama loses he's going to start his own country, go worship him there
