Romney was quite Impressed when he visited a Slave/Factory in China.

I believe he has the same Vision for the US.

A vote for Romney is a Vote for Worker Slavery.

So...basically the election comes down to a guy who will do whatever it takes to make a buck and a guy who will lie straight to the American people's faces as well as shift blame for a terrorist attack. A guy who stands by his moral beliefs or a guy who is ALREADY oppressing the American people. A guy who, yes I can admit it, doesn't seem to have a solid stance on anything or a guy who says he has a solid stance and plan, but we never see this plan in action. A guy who could possibly do something better or a guy who hasn't done a damn thing in the last four years.

And this is a stretch. It's been explained that Romney's involvement with Bain is extremely limited. Putting all the blame for what Bain is doing on Romney is like putting all the blame for what my dog does on Obama.


What a bucket of hogwash -

Romney was a senior partner at Bain, he helped develop the Chinese outsource model.

First of all, Romney no longer works for Bain.


No, he doesn't still 'work for Bain' - but Bain still works for Romney. His shares and retirement package (including dumping many Bain shares into his IRA) earns Romney millions of dollars a year from Bain Capital. The very business model adopted by Bain was pioneered by Romney - outsource and harvest.


Lol... I can tell whos been watching liberal news again! Romney didn't "pioneer" anything. It's just a word liberals use to make it sound like Romney was the first person in history to do so. I'm pretty sure companies were moving to other countries before Romney was a "racist fat cat bazillionaire".

Would you rather be a slave making peanuts or a leach living off the slaves?

So, we're blaming Romney for the actions of Bain, when he doesn't work there?
How does that work?

That's pretty flimsy reasoning.
Oppose Romney for a real reason, like socialized medicine, flip flopping, liberal legislation, elitism, etc.....you can make a case without resorting to grasping at straws

Fact of the matter is that Obama had his chance as president and failed immensely. If you want to vote back in the idiot, than that is your choice.

It’s time for Romney to have his chance. You can’t judge him as of yet because he has not had the chance to prove himself as president.

Now if Romney fails, we’ll see what other options come into play when the time comes.

You leftist people are going to have to face reality. Obama is going to lose. You do get that right…?

You can't?
Sorry dude, maybe you should not vote then if you are unable to judge a presidential candidate.

I wonder how many over there in the US are actually voting who are in fact completely unable to "judge"...a frightening thought, really.

Really? So the auto industry Obama keeps telling people he saved, moved to china and no one wants to talk about that? Spent billions in bail outs and now they dont make cars in the US, moved everything to china. How many jobs is that?

Guess it isnt news cause it doesnt fit your slanted manufactured reality.

Another company going to China...what policies has Obama put in place to prevent it?
Has he repealed NAFTA/CAFTA? That was the start all by Clinton and the Repubs are no better. I hoped Bush would limit trade with communist China when he was elected, but he was no better either.

Both parties sold us out so companies could have cheap labor. All the politicians promote are band aids to the problem they created. Repeal NAFTA/CAFTA to start.

Give me a break!

Sensata's principal executive offices are in the Netherlands.

Plus, 2/3 of Sensata's revenues come from outside the U.S.

If you want, blame Honeywell for selling the plant to Sensata in January 2011. Sensata informed all of it's employees that they were moving the plant's jobs to one of their other existing locations from the moment they took over. It looks like these employees have had almost two years to look for another job if they didn't like it.

You ask "what policies has Obama put in place to stop this" - let me remind you of these:

House Republicans Block "Bring Jobs Home Act"

The Bring Jobs Home Act blocked after Republican filibuster.

Yesterday a bill was blocked in Congress that would have ended the tax credit for outsourcing jobs (where companies are REWARDED for outsourcing jobs to China and Mexico) and instead would have given a 20% tax credit to companies for bringing jobs BACK to America.

July 16, 2012

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Sen. Jay Rockefeller is co-sponsoring a bill that would reverse tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas. The Bring Jobs Home Act would give companies a tax credit for bringing work back to the United States and end loopholes that give them breaks when they relocate workers to other countries, Rockefeller says.

"We now give tax incentives for people who move offshore. That's just about the dumbest thing I've ever heard."

Corporations that go overseas now receive a tax deduction for moving expenses, and they are also allowed to defer taxes on money made by their foreign operations. The Bring Jobs Home Act would change that to a 20 percent tax credit for the cost of bringing the work home.

Republicans in Congress have blocked the bill, calling it a tax increase. Rockefeller says the policy on breaks for companies that send jobs offshore shows a clear difference between the parties... (source)


 


Reality Check: Senate GOP kills veterans jobs bill

GOP blocks veterans jobs bill with budget vote

GOP Blocks Passage of Veterans Conservation Jobs Bill

 

Getting tough on China? Not from the Republicans:

Senate Republicans to Block Chinese Currency Bill

In an unexpected move, Senate Republicans will vote against a bill to crack down on China’s manipulation of its currency, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., indicated Wednesday.

"The China currency bill is highly unlikely to pass" in a cloture vote set for Thursday, McConnell said in an appearance on CNBC Wednesday night. Senate Republicans voted overwhelmingly to take up the bill in a 79-19 vote on Monday.

But now they are poised to block it. The about-face is in response to Majority Leader Harry Reid’s, D-Nev., decision Wednesday to deny amendments, GOP aides said.


 

Republicans block Obama move to curb outsourcing

In a setback to US President Barack Obama’s push to curb outsourcing of jobs to low-wage countries like India and China, Republican lawmakers have blocked a Bill in the Senate that sought to end tax breaks for companies shipping jobs overseas but cut taxes for those bringing the jobs back home.


 

Romney, Republicans Again Side With China Over US Companies

China and the US are in a fight to win a share of the millions of jobs and trillions of dollars that will come from the new alternative-energy industries that are gearing up to replace oil and coal. But Mitt Romney has told Republicans to remove an extension of wind-energy tax credits from an "extenders bill." This is about oil and coal company domination of our economy and the Republican Party -- even as it gives China an economic advantage over us. Romney also is not asking the House to vote on the bill that fights Chinese currency manipulation. What's going on?


 



 

From currency manipulation to unfair trade to outsourcing jobs (including high-tech) to China, Republicans have again and again sided WITH China against the American workers. Some of the excuses used by the GOP over why they blocked those acts/bills were becasue Dems (Reid) refused to allow amendments to be made to the act/bill. China is the ULTIMATE PROOF of the CON job the GOP (and some faux Dems) have been playing on Americans.

China is further ultimate proof of the Con Job that Republicans (Wall Street) have been running on US

sooo pretty much because the information is coming from the left it is null and void..


kinda like when detrimental information from the right comes out against a left candidate.

You idiots do not see that your bias to your party has allowed some pretty messed up people get into office simply because they were part of your gang.

idiots.

I do have a solution.
Unfortunately, because of the passage of certain bills, I am unable to offer that solution to you without being labeled something I'd rather not be labeled. Nuff said.


You are afraid of being labeled?






YES!

Let's look at some of things stated in your own links, shall we?


"(With) a need so great as unemployed veterans, this is not the time to draw a technical line on the budget," Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida (the bill's lead sponsor) said to the Associated Press.

The bill calls for a waiver from budget restrictions that were agreed to during last year's heated budget battle.

Rep. Tim Scott (R-SC) the bill has good intentions, but there is a caveat.

"It is not possible to enact when both houses are out of session until after the election, and we already have six veteran programs that have not been proven to work," said Scott. "The President and some Democrats think you can ignore a law just because it's an election year".

The about-face is in response to Majority Leader Harry Reid’s, D-Nev., decision Wednesday to deny amendments, GOP aides said.

Reid took that step to thwart a push by McConnell to highlight Democratic divisions by forcing a vote on a version of President Obama’s jobs plan that includes tax increases some Democrats oppose.

That is whereas during Reagan years and for many years after they got away with this Objective by playing the Con Job on on US that: "Government is the problem not the solution..." in recent years they have been running this same Con Job on US with the fear-mongering that we have "Too Much Debt & Deficits" and thus of course we need to cut Government spending as the solution to these Debt & Deficits, which again would yield the same objective, if you fall for this Con Job, as "Government is the problem not the solution..." of the Reagan era.


I'm not even going to cut and paste all of the additional information taken from your article that states that the reason China is doing so much better than the U.S. is because it's a socialist country and we should follow in their footsteps.

If our government hasn't proven by all of the infighting and lack of decision making that bigger government is the problem, I don't know what will.

The only reason China's government makes it looks like socialism works for them is by killing (literally) each other off in the process.

that's what I'm talking about, the Chinese goverment subsidizes everything there, and most of it's biggest industries are owned by the communist party. We have no chance of competing with them, even as they manipulate their currency and use a nearly slave-wage force.
we need policies to curb outsourcing, and so far from congress we have a republican-backed agenda to keep giving in more and more to China, and blocking any bill that seeks to curb outsourcing.

Romney is a corporate CEO who made his fortune in stripping companies and outsourcing jobs to China. He is the last person in America who would stand up to them. Even the Chinese communists said as much - China: Romney's rich because of us (from China's official news agency xinhuanet.com)

Ad about Romney and outsourcing.



but this is about a lot more than just outsourcing, it's about the policies that have led to the US losing it's industrial and technology base to China, and which party led us down that path, including the mindset of the CEOs and business world that pushed us along it.
