Mitt's splitting hairs.

Mitt does know that when most people talk about outsourcing, they're talking about offshore outsourcing, right?

You know, what happens when you fire someone and then replace them with someone in another country.

A that pays less, has worse working conditions, fewer child labor laws, no workers' comp, and no employment benefits. Pretty much all the things that Republicans want for US workers.

tony41454: DEM CHAIR WASSERMAN SCHULTZ OUTSOURCED MONEY TO SWISS BANKS, INDIA

by JOHN NOLTE 10 Jul 2012, 11:00 AM PDT 135 POST A COMMENT

Please excuse the loose use of the term "outsource" in my headline. But now that the Washington Post, BuzzFeed Politics, and Barack Obama have defined outsourcing as "Something Romney never did but is guilty of anyway," I wanted to get in the spirit of things.

Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been running around for a few days now sliming up the airwaves with smears and innuendo that started with this article written by Vanity Fair's Nicholas Shaxson, a bigtime leftist and Occupy supporter. Essentially, the Wasserman Schultz talking point has been: "We don't know what Romney's hiding in his shady finances so we need to find out."

Really, Debbie? Well, we don't know if you tortured small animals on-camera, and until you release all of your home movies we won't know.

Obviously, in her desire to help our frantic and increasingly erratic President save his sorry self, Wasserman Schultz forgot her own record when it comes to offshoring money with the Swiss:

[D]isclosure forms reveal that in 2010, Wasserman Schultz invested between $1,001-$15,000 in a 401k retirement fund run by Davis Financial Fund. As the fund discloses, it is invested in the Julius Baer Group Ltd. and the State Bank of India GDR Ltd., as well as other financial, insurance, bank institutions.

"The Julius Baer Group is the leading Swiss private banking group, focusing exclusively on the demands of sophisticated private clients, family offices and external asset managers from around the world," its website explains. "Bank Julius Baer is the principal operating company of the Julius Baer Group, with origins dating back to 1890. The rich Swiss heritage becomes manifest in the values for which the Bank stands, e.g. trustworthiness, accountability, discretion and expertise. However, at the same time Julius Baer is a modern, forward-looking compa ...

Mrtraveler01: ELAINE: What about ponies? What kind of abnormal animal is that? And those kids who had their own ponies..

JERRY: I know, I hated those kids. In fact, I hate anyone that ever had a pony when they were growing up.

MANYA: ..I had a pony.

(The room is dead quiet)

JERRY: ..Well, I didn't really mean a pony, per se.

MANYA: (Angry) When I was a little girl in Poland, we all had ponies. My sister had pony, my cousin had pony, ..So, what's wrong with that?

JERRY: Nothing. Nothing at all. I was just merely expressting..

HELEN: Should we have coffee? Who's having coffee?

MANYA: He was a beautiful pony! And I loved him.

JERRY: Well, I'm sure you did. Who wouldn't love a pony? Who wouldn't love a person that had a pony?

MANYA: You! You said so!

JERRY: No, see, we didn't have ponies. I'm sure at the time in Poland, they were very common. They were probably like compact cars..

MANYA: That's it! I've had enough! (She leaves the room)

ISAAC: Have your coffee, everyone. She's a little upset. It's been an emotional day.

(Isaac leaves, everyone looks at Jerry)

JERRY: I didn't know she had a pony. How was I to know she had a pony? Who figures an immigrant's going to have a pony? Do you know what the odds are on

that? I mean, in all the pictures I saw of immigrants on boats coming into New York harbor, I never saw one of them sitting on a pony. Why would anybody come

hre if they had a pony? Who leaves a country packed with ponies to come to a non-pony country? It doesn't make sense.. am I wrong?

Obama: Romney shipped jobs overseas using private investment capital that was part of a mutually agreed upon transaction. I feel that he should do things my way, which is to send money and jobs overseas using money you must under penalty of law provide to me.


Aside from missing every other point in the thread, were the workers whose jobs Romney outsourced mutually agreeable?

How can Mitt Romney at some point not have a meltdown during this campaign? I predict Obama owns him in the debates. Any direct question to Romney or his staff is answered with pablum, nonsense or dribble.

Hi whole 'message' breaks down with a few probing questions. His reason for running is flimsy and no one likes him.
 
2012-07-10 08:50:35 PM
Mitt Romney accused President Obama of encouraging outsourcing by applying stimulus money to foreign-owned companies, rebutting reports that Bain Capital invested in companies that were early adopters of outsourcing and offshoring.

So according to Romney, a company is only American if it's owners are American. Never mind the fact that the foreign-owned companies might be employing American workers. Yes, it's the owners that matter, not the workers.

The Obama campaign needs to hang him on this.

OBAMA'S OUTSOURCING FAR WORSE THAN ROMNEY'S

by WILLIAM BIGELOW
Who's the worst outsourcer in today's presidential race? It isn't Mitt Romney - it's Barack Obama.

Obama's second largest fundraiser is John Rogers, the CEO of investment giant Ariel Capital Management. He has raised more than $1.5 million for Obama's reelection campaign. Bully for him, except for one thing: Ariel Capital Management owns a $48.6 million stake in Accenture, which just happens to be, according to the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals, the nation's "best" outsourcer.

And that's not all for Rogers; he stated that he wants to intensify the trend that started with moving call centers and factories overseas to outsourcing "day-to-day activities" including pest control, landscaping, and secretarial functions. And Rogers isn't ashamed one bit:
"We're making a very big bet right now on outsourcing. People have generally soured on the idea, and many companies are trading at discounts to their private-market values. But we don't think that view accurately reflects the powerful secular growth we're going to see as companies and individuals outsource more of their day-to-day activities."
Of course, Rogers isn't just anyone; he and Obama were buddies in Chicago, and Rogers' ex-wife Desiree left a $350,000 per year job at Allstate Insurance Company to serve as White House party planner.
If Obama's second largest fundraiser is outsourcing jobs by the bushel, you just know his biggest fundraiser has got to be cravenly doing the same thing, right?
Right. Obama's largest fundraiser, DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, who raised $2 million for the campaign and co-hosted a $10 million Hollywood fundraiser in May, has been trying to outsource jobs to China by expanding his company's work there. Why, Jeffrey has even been investigated by the SEC for doing it.
GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt was appointed by his good friend Barack to lead the White House Jobs Council. During Immelt's reign at GE, GE rid itself of more than 34,000 American workers, while adding 25,000 foreign workers to its payroll. Additionally, in July 2011, GE fired 150 workers at its X-ray division in Wisconsin and moved the operation to China, hiring 65 new workers there.
While Obama's campaign released an ad boasting of green jobs it has created through energy loans it has given, they failed to mention a salient point: among the loans were three taxpayer-guaranteed loans to Spanish clean energy conglomerate Abengoa worth $2.78 billion to create 195 permanent jobs-more than $14 million per job-as well as a $529 million loan guarantee to Fisker Automotive, which manufactures $100,000 electric cars in Finland and is now virtually bankrupt.
Now let's talk auto industry. Obama's Department of Energy gave nearly $6 billion in taxpayer-guaranteed loans to the Ford Motor Company, which is expanding its business outside the U.S. Obama gave General Motors $50 billion and GM started building cars in China and Mexico to save on labor; later, Obama gave GM $45 billion in tax breaks so GM did not have to pay a dime in income taxes after making a $7.6 billion profit.
Now we get the picture. Obama criticizes Romney for outsourcing while being the king of outsourcers himself.

The thing about Mitt for the Obama campaign is that they're walking through a forest with a baseball bat and there's a piñata hanging from every tree. And they give one a tap, another a few strikes, them they get distracted by another which they tap for a bit then move on to the next one as it looks really tempting.

They need to quit that, pick a piñata and hammer the fark out of it. The average American can barely focus on one thing at a time, expecting them to keep track of the myriad flaws of Romney or the GOP requires a level of optimism that leads people to pan for gold in their bathtub.
