Mitt Romney Has Zero Percent of the Black Vote, Poll Says | NR
The latest NBC/Wall Street Journal says Romney is trailing Obama 94% to 0% with the African-American vote.View more from this network >>

People need to vote! Make Romneys' 0% into -20%. Romney is what is wrong with the American economy, he is the reason why our country is suffering.

He is a vulture capitalist who took Americans who were on their jobs for 20-25 yrs and put them on the unemployment line while he hired citizens of India and China to fill these American jobs.

Romney is the anti American job candidate, FACT!!!!! Stand up and vote against Romney in order to keep him out of the presidency. He resembles everything bad that American corporations stand for.

Romney is the reason why our country is suffering??? Quick, vote him out of the elected office he holds.

Wait a minute, Obama has been President for the last four years. What role and responsibility does he play in any of this mess?

Mitt Romney: What I Learned at Bain Capital

The back-to-school season is here, and as parents take their children to shop for school supplies, I suspect that many of them will be visiting a Staples store. I'm very familiar with those stores because Staples is one of many businesses we helped create and expand at Bain Capital, a firm that my colleagues and I built. The firm succeeded by growing and fixing companies.

The lessons I learned over my 15 years at Bain Capital were valuable in helping me turn around the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. They also helped me as governor of Massachusetts to turn a budget deficit into a surplus and reduce our unemployment rate to 4.7%. The lessons from that time would help me as president to fix our economy, create jobs and get things done in Washington.

A broad message emerges from my Bain Capital days: A good idea is not enough for a business to succeed. It requires a talented team, a good business plan and capital to execute it. That was true of companies we helped start, like Staples and the Bright Horizons child-care provider, and several of the struggling companies we helped turn around, like the Brookstone retailer and the contact-lens maker Wesley Jessen.

My presidency would make it easier for entrepreneurs and small businesses to get the investment dollars they need to grow, by reducing and simplifying taxes; replacing Obamacare with real health-care reform that contains costs and improves care; and by stemming the flood of new regulations that are tying small businesses in knots.

My business experience confirmed my belief in empowering people. For example, at Bain Capital we bought Accuride, a company that made truck rims and wheels, because we saw untapped potential there. We instituted performance bonuses for the management team, which had a dramatic impact. The managers made the plants more productive, and the company started growing, adding 300 jobs while Bain was involved. My faith in people, not government, is at the foundation of my plan to strengthen America's middle class.

I also saw firsthand through these investments how energy costs impact the ability of a business to grow. Today, energy costs are weighing on job creators across America because President Obama has limited energy exploration and restricted development in ways that sap economic performance, curtail growth, and kill jobs. I will take a sensible approach to tapping our energy resources, which will both create jobs and make energy more affordable for every sector of our economy.

In the 1990s, when the "old-technology" steel industry in the U.S. was failing, Bain Capital helped build a new steel company, Steel Dynamics, which has grown into one of the largest steel producers in America today, holding its own against Chinese producers. The key to its success? State-of-the-art new technology.

Here are two lessons from the Steel Dynamics story: First, innovation is essential to the competitiveness of U.S. manufacturing. We are the most innovative, entrepreneurial nation in the world. To maintain that lead, we must give people the skills to succeed. My plan for a stronger middle class includes policies to give every family access to great schools and quality teachers, to improve access to higher education, and to attract and retain the best talent from around the world.

The second lesson is that we must have a level playing field in international trade. As president, I will challenge unfair trade practices that are harming American workers.

Running a business also brings lessons in tackling challenges. I was on the board of a medical diagnostic-laboratory company, Damon, when a competitor announced that it had settled with the government over a charge of fraudulent Medicare billing. I and fellow Damon outside board members joined together and immediately hired an independent law firm to examine Damon's own practices.

The investigation revealed a need to make some changes, which we did. The company, along with several other clinical-laboratory companies, ended up being fined for billing practices. And a Damon manager who was responsible for the fraud went to jail. The experience taught me that when you see a problem, run toward it or it will only get worse.

That will be my approach to our federal budget problem. I am committed to capping federal spending below 20% of GDP and reducing nondefense discretionary spending by 5%. This will surely result in much wailing and gnashing of teeth in Washington. But a failure of leadership has created our debt crisis, and ducking responsibility will only cripple the economy and smother opportunity for our children and grandchildren.

I'm not sure Bain Capital could have grown or turned around some of the companies we invested in had we faced today's anti-business environment. Andy Puzder, the chief executive of CKE Restaurants Inc., which employs about 21,000 people at Carl's Jr. and Hardee's restaurants, has said that the "current unfriendly economic environment perhaps best explains why American companies are sitting on over $2 trillion which they could invest."

President Obama has piled on excessive regulations, proposed massive tax increases, added more than $5 trillion in federal debt, and failed to address the coming fiscal cliff—all of which is miring our nation in sluggish growth and high unemployment.

I know what it takes to turn around difficult situations. And I will put that experience to work, to get our economy back on track, create jobs, strengthen the middle class and lay the groundwork for America's increased competitiveness in the world.

Mr. Romney is the Republican Party candidate for president.

What has become a fact and scary is the fact that you do vote and the majority of citizens don't bother to vote.

Let me begin slowly for you. Romney incorporated "outsourcing" of American jobs to China and India!

Do you even understand that outsourcing is a disaster for America? First America is the number one consumer in the world. Now if you outsource 40% of all American jobs to India and China then you reduce the American consumer market by that same 40%.

This means that 40% of Americans no longer go Christams shopping. There homes get forclosed on and this same 40% come off the tax roles.

It began with companies such as NIKE then to Gillettes and the list continues on. Insurance companies, all customer service phone banks are outsourced. These American corporations were in record profit margins when they decided to move all jobs to China and India.

Our country has been forced to borrow Billions from the Chinese in order to stimulate the economy. At the same time American oil companies squeezed the rest of Americas disposable incomes. Harveys and the like continued to run increase after increase4 on materials.

The United States of America was always run on the service industry. Citizens employed in this industry would in turn spend all their money back into the economy. This spending has stopped as illegal immigrants and work visa employees flooded our respective fields.

Romney was solely responsible for the destruction of entire families!!!! As parents of two - three kids received pink slips by the hundred after giving over 20 dedicated years to their respective companies.All this in the midst of record profits concerning their businesses. Bain Capital run by and created by Romney made decisions for these companies as they gave them direction to fire their entire American workforce and to rehire in India and China!

An economy doesn't work when you drain the entire system of its income. This has created the greed and need for the almighty dividend. it is now economically correct for a teacher to invest all their money into companies run in China and India. So in essence they are teaching and educating students into failure! There are no jobs waiting for these students as they are all in china or India. The other jobs are filled with employees of companies that moved to China.

In essence Bain Capital completely drained and destroyed the American consumer by putting them on the unemployment line!

To add insult to injury Romney wants to now take those unemployment benefits away from the very employees that he fired in order to hire in India and China. He also wants to take away their health care and food stamps!

So Romney took their jobs away; in turn these Americans lost their homes, couldn't afford to raise their kids any longer due to their job being moved out of the country. Now Romney wants their health care and food!

So, you call this free enterprise?? I call it smashing of the American family for profit! Filthy profit. I wouldn't trust a mormon if this is what they are all about!

As a woman, Romney would have to personally ok your entrance into his heaven! Nice, huh? If Romney said no, then a female cannot enter the kingdom of God.

Bain capital was a "PIONEER" concerning the outsourcing of American jobs! These VULTURES totally destroyed American families for profit!

Bain Capital has lead every other American corporation when it comes to shipping long held American jobs oversees!

Stamos what you write is FALSE! Why don't you investigate the insurance companies that have outsourced all their jobs oversees? Customer service jobs, tech jobs, management jobs, marketing jobs, advertising jobs, attorneys, teachers and the list goes onward.

Companies such as Staples have been able to survive due SOLELY to all the stimulus packgs that Obama and Bush put into motion in order to save the American economy from a complete and abrupt HALT!

Research both Bush documentaries where he states that the ENTIRE AMERICAN ECONOMY was extremely close to a COMPLETE STOPPAGE! Obama has only been able to add sauve to these economic wounds that the Bush tax cuts and war spending did to our economy. The Republicans have at the same time OBSTRUCTED EVERY PRO_AMERICAN JOBS BILL that the Dems have brought forward!

Yes, teachers, firefighters and police jobs have been saved through these grants/stimulus funds that OBAMA has made available.

Slow down cowboy we get it. Because you refuse to get a job and work for a living companies had to outsource to a country where people are willing to do the job. When I read you and Gomez are working in a sneaker factory I'll buy into your bullshit. But we both know that won't be happening in the near future.

You complain about people who work for a living but they are the ones who make it possible for you to get your welfare checks. Show a little respect.

Lynch, even FactCheck.com which is being funded by Annenberg who once employed this community agitator spread the welfare Oblame-O and his domestic terrorist Bill Ayers friend, has exposed all the lies you've swallowed. I realize their not the most credible source but every now an again they do get it right.
FactCheck to Obama Camp: Your Complaint is All Wet;

Obama’s ‘Outsource’ Overreach

The president's campaign fails to back up its claims that Romney 'shipped jobs' overseas;
http://factcheck.org/2012/06/obamas-outsource...

And perhaps you should point out that both Chrysler and General Motors, both bailed out by Oblame-O with 80 Billion taxpayer dollars, actively outsource to Mexico and China. Most of GM's growth and success since that bail-out has been in China. Oblame-O "saved" GM not so Americans can have the jobs here, but so they can be moved to China through outsourcing. China has imposed tariffs on GM cars, reportedly 25% on Cadillac's, which in turn has compelled GM to move production AND TECHNOLOGY to CHINA... How do all those union jobs look now? THOSE jobs moved to China.

General Motors is becoming China Motors


So now who is it that has been "OUTSOURCING" American jobs all while using 80 Billion taxpayer dollars to do so? That would be the spread this welfare POTUS. FACT

And when Oblame-O the community agitator shut down oil drilling in the Gulf, He commandeered taxpayer billions to Petrobas, a Soros invested Oil Company run by the Brazilian government.

I wouldn’t call this Outsourcing. I’d call it Outright-Piracy.
