Mitt will make foreign made profits tax free.
So, under Romney, build a plant here & get taxed or build a plant overseas & not get taxed. Yep, that will send more jobs overseas.
TODAY! After almost four years he does something today.

If others are for it, Romney is for it.

The entire Romney campaign.

China doesn't steal or technology, we give it to them.

If you sell your product into China, you basically give them your designs.

Want to build a factory, you basically have to partner with a Chinese company.

Where Barack Obama Won The Debate

Libya.

Barack Obama turned his administration's worst foreign policy disaster into a dramatic victory in Tuesday's debate when Mitt Romney sought to stretch the criticism of the Obama Administration's handling of the incident.

Romney's criticism of Obama's handling of the crisis met a stern lecture from Obama about politicizing the tragedy; and when Obama said he'd called the incident an act of terror from the start, Romney thought he saw an opening.

The Republican attacked Obama for, he said, calling the attack on Benghazi a terrorist attack until two weeks later, only to be interrupted — and corrected — brusquely moderator Candy Crowley, who noted that Obama had used the phrase "acts of terror" in the Rose Garden immediately after the attack.(Republicans later argued that he hadn't specifically applied the phrase to Libya; he was, however, in the Rose Garden to speak about Libya.)

The blunder — the one moment Tuesday when a candidate seemed genuinely rattled — may have been the product of, if anything, overpreparation.

For weeks, Romney aides have been talking about Libya as a growing issue that would undermine Obama’s lead with voters on foreign policy.

“I’m telling you,” a top Romney aide told BuzzFeed last week,“Obama can’t defend the cover-up.”

But it was Romney who couldn’t defend a patently false attack, and couldn’t navigate to safe ground.

Democrats were so confident in the performance that even before the debate was over they marched in their surrogates in dramatic fashion, answering questions while Romney and Obama answered their final questions.

"We saw a rattled mitt Romney tonight," gloated Obama press secretary Jen Psaki, who called his performance on Libya an "unmitigated disaster. "He doesn't have a bit of credibility on foreign policy issues."

Unmitigated disaster

Jobs are shipped to China because, unlike Americans, the Chinese have a far better work ethic. American workers are basically lazy, inefficient and overpaid. Have you seen a State Highway Department crew recently? That's why so many Americans are unemployed. Businesses these days are tired of paying exorbitant wages to deadwood.

What about the knockout punch from Obama over the Libyan Embassy attack. He saved that one, where he is actually on the record 24hrs later saying it WAS a Terrorist attack. Poor ole Mitt getting his facts from Fox news didn't know what to do, he thought his fox facts said Obama didn't admit to it. Well he was proved wrong again and just about everything else he said where he changed his mind 180deg depending on who gave him support. Like the NRA for example, another slam dunk for Obama. The China sydrome, another slam dunk for Obama, etc etc

No answer expected, just more bullmanure.
