Did you read any post after that? I guess not.

Unless your day job is guessing, I suggest you do not quit it.

But Romney was talking out his ass when he said it.

You can't prove that. Well, you haven't proven that. Not with the video you posted.

Do you think a person like Romney really walks through a place like he described?

If he is investing a lot of money that he is responsible for... absolutely. The big wigs always take the cool trips overseas when acquiring companies. And, yes, they tour the factories.

I doubt it.

He might

I don't know

That about sums it up.

Romney is a lying sack of ****.

The ONLY reason a corporation does business in China is because they know they can get away with working people to death, for next to nothing, making products idiots in the west will buy for a hell of a lot more.

Corporations are designed to make as much money as possible, they charge as much as possible, and spend as little as possible. The idea that there would be any iota of morality or Humanity in a corporate decision goes against the very fundamental ideal of the corporate mentality.

People like Romney get rich from exploiting others. There's no wimping out of that fact or trying to disguise it as "just doing business". Millions of people do business every day without losing their morality. The only difference is that none of them become billionaires. And they're much better for it too

O.K. So you are saying that when Romney claimed that he had no influence over Bain ( he only was the by far the major stock holder) he was lying!

"Our managers communicated to our workforce that the attendance at the Romney event was mandatory, but no one was forced to attend,"
Talk about double-talk! No wonder he is a close friend of Romney!!
Yeah a true Mormon! What a hypocrite!

Seems Jon Huntsman is a missing piece in this story. Jon Huntsman Romney's cousin yes they both are related to the Mormon leader Parley Parker Pratt, Sr. Jon Huntsman has lived in China several times. Speaks at least two of there dialects, Jon Huntsman Sr started a business with Robert C. Gay from Bain Capital. Huntsman Gay Global Capital. Gay worked for Bain for 16 years before joining Romney's cousin Huntsman. So Gay worked with Romney while he was at Bain. Seems some of the attacks and even leaks about Bain are coming from Gay and Huntsman. So what does Romney do? Bain Capital is buying Huntsman Corp. They already bought into Huntsman Corp in 2001 for 600 million. link how many times will Bain Capital buy into this corporation? Or is it big time payoffs? I think Jon Huntsman Jr is the key to Romney and Bain in China and he knows some dirty little secrets.

The plan I am advocating? Are you kidding? I never said that. But it was Clinton who forced banks to make bad loans that were never repaid and were defaulted on, and Barney Frank said all was fine while he was presiding as overseer of Fannie/Freddie. It never ceases to amaze me how people turn this stuff all around to implicate the free market economy and capitalism. But then that is what socialists and communists do(and people who don't understand these systems).
Do you really believe that the regulations this admin has instituted are going to help you? Tell you what, if Obama has another term let's revisit this again and see what you say.
Just because I advocate free enterprise does not mean I advocate Big Business or Big Pharma and I definitely don't advocate Big Govt. I believe in moderation in all things. It is sickening to see people bash business, while banging away on their computers which some corporation made.
As I have said to other people, the alternative is the collectivist farms like Russia had under Stalin. Good luck with that if that's what you want.
Just how do you think the socialists are going to get their money to fund big govt if they are not seizing money from the corporations? How could they even do that if corporations didn't exist? If we went back to the 1700's, we would find that the little people would be taxed after they milked their cows for the day. Have fun with that. And take some classes in economics. But even that won't help you if you can't think your way through it with some common sense.
The whole Occupy thing is outrageous because these people were using their corporate made iphones and computers to whine and complain about corporations.
wanna go back to the agrarian way of life? The pioneers worked themselves to the bone and they even had guns in case the wolves came out of the woods to eat their livestock. Oh wait, you don't want guns either right? What are you going to do ? How are you going to live? Are you going to go pick berries out of the woods?

And its real bad when the military keeps getting trojan chips because they have no one at home who can make it because people like Romney sent it all over seas for a buck.

Liberals and leftists have to decide whether or not they actually want corporations in the US or not, or whether they want to regulate business so much they keep going elsewhere. They have to decide if they want companies to work for or if they want collectivist farms like they had in Russia before Russia's economy went belly up.
Pick a position. Corporations in the US or collectivist farms. Or picking berries in the woods.

Seems you want your cake and eat it too though. You want to tax and tax and tax the corporations so that people can suck off that. You want fewer hours and bigger pay. Yes it's true, that is the pitch that socialists make. And you want someone else to pay for stuff. You know it and I know it.

There's that old right-wing lie again, all "liberals and leftists" are against corporations. How about they're against the destructive corrupting influences certain corporations have over government. 95% of companies out there abide by the law, pay their share, and only seek to make a legitimate profit for themselves and pay their employees livable salaries. But then there are the real shady corrupt corporations that flaunt the law or break it, bribe governments, use their money to buy influence, and undermine the American system and values. Hello, WorldCom? Enron? Goldman Sachs? JP Morgan? Mobil/Exxon? You get the picture?

As it is, American workers have been dumbed down and devalued, we now have European companies flocking to the USA for cheap labor and less regulations. The way we're going, we'll be on par with China pretty soon - Extreme wealth among the party elites, extreme poverty among the worker drones, and an environment straight out of Dante's worst nightmare. Take the Airbus - the pride of the European airline industry - being made in the USA. Take Hyundai and Toyota, building their cars here in the USA but found American workers so illiterate they had to use picture books to instruct them on how to do their jobs. Even IKEA is now operating a manufacturing plant in Virginia, where it's employees earn half of their overseas counterparts in Sweden ($19 versus $8).

Americans have given into every demand from the corporate elite seeking to control the TPM and the Republican message, which is "give us more, and keep giving until there is nothing left".

“The plan I am advocating? Are you kidding? I never said that. But it was Clinton who forced banks to make bad loans that were never repaid and were defaulted on,..”
The banks wanted to make bad loans. Why? Because under deregulation they were allowed to sell mortgages to investors. Because of lax regulation those mortgages were rated AAA. Once sold the banks did not care if those mortgages were paid or not. Therefore, the banks wanted to create as many mortgages as possible.
And you want to deregulate the banks and Wall Street even more!!!

We're able to backtrack all the way to the Federal Reserve Board - low income housing rules. Again, the crisis is a giant central bank scam.

Have at:

Based on a similar assessment... These are used to keep people from catapulting into someone else's job:
