Romney hits back at Obama lies

Invoking Hillary Clinton from her ill-fated 2008 Democratic presidential primary against Barack Obama, the Romney for President campaign is releasing a television ad today that pushes back on Obama’s claims that Romney outsourced jobs while managing Bain Capital.

    If the ad is not true, it should be stopped immediately (same goes for all campaign ads that are not true.) Note that there is conflicting information between when Romney said he left Bain (1999) and when SEC reports (which suposed to be truthful) said he left Bain (2002). From the Washington Post:

    In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission in February 2001, Bain Capital listed Romney as the company’s “sole shareholder, sole director, chief executive officer and president.” It said Romney’s “principal occupation” was as Bain’s managing director.

    Questions about Romney’s control at Bain from 1999 to 2001 are important in his bid to oust President Barack Obama this fall. That’s when the company oversaw investments that either sent jobs abroad or filed for bankruptcy. It’s also a time during which Romney stated in federal disclosure forms that he was not active in Bain Capital.

    For example, in late 1999, Bain-controlled Steam International set up overseas call centers, and a subsidiary moved jobs from California to Mexico. In 2000, the Ampad company declared bankruptcy. The following year, so did steel-maker GS Industries — just as Bain made $58.4 million from its investment.

    Well that settles it—Flopsy says so–despite the WaPo, SEC, Boston Globe’s own book, Bain’s official releases–aren’t enough for Flopsy—-spoken like a true Milhousbot.
    Only pinheaded leftists aren’t satisfied with actual facts and logic.
    Flopsy—who paid for Milhous’s college????

    Unwinding a large, complex corporation is a lengthy process–with breathless anticipation l await Flopsy’s detailed analysis on this and why Romney is guilty despite the facts—since Flopsy knows all.

    Who cares if Romney did those things. Bain Capital’s job was to make money. If moving jobs overseas made money then Bain Capital did its job well.

    I want a president who will do his job well no matter what the job.

    Would this be the same “Brian” that when asked to back up his comment that I was flip-flopping after I posted a statistic that is readily available to the public….than responded with an incoherent rant that had nothing to do with repudiating (or as Palin would say “refudiating”) what I posted.

    I will try to simplify my above post to you this time or you can have someone read you the story which is in most newspapers today.

    Fact 1: Romney has said for years that his time at Bain ended in 1999 when he retired from the company. At least one other time he referred to it as a leave.

    Fact 2: There are several SEC filings (and other reports) that seem to contradict what Romney has been saying for all of these years regarding involvement with Bain in 200o, 2001 and 2002.

    In typical Brian fashion, you take Fact 1 and Fact 2 and attack me. You need to ask Mr. Romney for a detailed analysis that you seek since I dont have an explanation why Bain’s SEC filings are different from what Romney has been saying.

    By the way, I am not saying that Romney is guilty of anything (even though intentionally false SEC filings are a felony.) He does however owe voters an explanation.
