Skip to comments.Obama defiantly attacks Romney on ‘outsourcing'[Lies may be working"]
Posted on 07/03/2012 8:31:32 AM PDT by daivid
President Barack Obama's reelection campaign on Tuesday redoubled its attack on Mitt Romney as someone who shipped jobs overseas, defying findings from independentfact-checking outlets that have branded the accusation largely baseless.
But recent polls in pivotal battleground states have found that the incumbent's approach may be working. And it's unclear whether the average voter will distinguish between Bain Capital under Romney's management and what happened after he left the company in 1999 to run the Salt Lake City Olympic Games

It's all they've got and maybe all they need. The media and Hollywood will be pushing the story 24/7. Two weeks ago Obama said the economy was doing well and instead of laughing in his face the talking heads parroted his comments for three days running.
Obama has this type of ad all over youtube. I’ve seen nothing from Romney. Looks like Romney is taking campaign advice from Dole and McCain.
Or maybe Romney is laying low and is plotting stragery.
Where liberals and the media are concerned, it's not the nature of the evidence that matters in cases like this. It is the seriousness of the charge
It is working so well that Rasmussen has Romney up another point today...
Of course lies work. Mitt used them to great effect against Newt!
That’s it. Keep trashing Romney. You know where that’s going to get us.
You know he is. Romney is nothing if well organized and strategic. I never cared for Romney at all...but he must rout Obama (and he will, I believe, play hardball).
I think Roney needs to hit back hard with ads that show obvious Obama lies:
Middle class taxes will not increase...
Stimulus will keep unemployment below 8%...
Lots of “green jobs” will be created...
I’d also like to see ads with side-by-side images:
Left side: videos of Americans talking about their economic problems
Right side: videos of Obama playing golf
My point is Romney is not above fighting fire with fire.
I’m with you! There are soooo many things they can say, in so many ways’nicely’, if they must.
Send money and they can do these.
Whatever you may think a strategy may be, but if his statement that Obamacare is a penalty and not a tax just made me want to spit nails.
What a shock.
The President’s legitimate abysmal jobs record should be ignored. Romney’s imaginary outsourcing is the true key issue in this election.
WHY JOHNNY IS UNEMPLOYED John Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN ) for 6am. While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA ) Was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG ..) He put on a dress shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA ), designer jeans (MADE IN SINGAPORE ) and tennis shoes (MADE IN KOREA ) After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN INDIA ) Then sat down with his calculator (MADE IN MEXICO ) to see how much he could spend today. After setting his watch (MADE IN TAIWAN ) to the radio (MADE IN INDIA ) he got in his car (MADE IN GERMANY ) filled it with GAS (from Saudi Arabia ) At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day searched his Computer (Made In Malaysia ), John decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL ) Sat on his couch, (MADE IN CHINA) poured himself a glass of wine (MADE IN FRANCE ) and turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA ) and then wondered whose thinking needs to be adjusted as to why he cant find a job.
Ladyjane, stop slobbering over Romney. He does not deserve it at all.
Obama must be seeing some really rotten poll numbers. Here in Ma. he has been flooding the airwaves with ads. Of all the states he should have in his back pocket and he is spending big $.
The lies are only working with those who are already in the Obama bag.
Well Romney did nothing but saturate the TV ,Newspapers and Phones with distortions against NEWT
Now he is on the receiving end from Obama ,
If this election wasn’t so serious it would be laughable
The problem is that, the only way to counter Obama attacks on Romney on this issue...is to point out that Obama keeps approving Free Trade deals that ship jobs out of the country.
But, you will have all the GOP Free Traders whining over this fact being used. Free Trade is more important than beating Obama, which is the mindset of liberal Free Trade supporters of both parties
Fact is, Romney’s best counter is an issue supported by Obama ( and Al Gore, George Soros, The Clintons) and the Free Trade supporters in the GOP
I think we are both on the same wavelength here. Unfortunately both parties have shipped jobs out of the country...although with Romney....Bain Capital did a lot of downsizing (not offshoring)
But, the GOP with its liberal Free Trade platform absolutely kills any counter to Obama.
Actually, ‘outsourcing’ began with NAFTA quite a few years ago. Ship all your training, expertise, innovation, investment, and jobs overseas, and then you can let your ex-work force live off food stamps and become slaves just like we have now. It’s OK, as long as corporate America can pay big bonuses and sponsor Limbaugh. Bye-bye, Snapple.
Slobbering over Romney?
You have a vivid imagination.
Why would you want Obama for a second term?
I don’t want Romney but to be a cheerleader for idiot Romney will not happen from me. It is going to take all of my power to go to the voting booth and vote for liberal Romney. Oh I will do it but it won’t be as easy as voting for McCain that is for sure. I find both Obama and Romney pretty much the same. I don’t think things will change for the country no matter who wins.
