..........No troops visit…“Romney will not stop at either of America’s war zones, Iraq or Afghanistan, a decision the campaign says was made in part because of time constraints.”
But fundraiser with Barclays bankers? Sure.“Romney will also attend two fundraisers while in London with U.S. citizens who live abroad. According to The Washington Post, the hosts of the fundraisers are largely lobbyists and executives from financial institutions, some of which are tied to the Libor rate-fixing scandal. The New York Times reported that 11 members of Parliament, upset that some Barclay’s bank executives were fundraising for Romney amid the scandal that has rocked their bank........
The Obama campaign has been blaming Mitt Romney for the failure of the GST Steel Company in 2001, conveniently ignoring the fact that Mitt Romney left Bain Capital, which had taken over GST, in 1999.
This in itself is a dishonest attack, which will surprise no one, but it gets even more egregious when coupled with this salient fact:
one of Barack Obama’s top bundlers, Jonathan Lavine, managing director at Bain, who has bundled between $100,000 and $200,000 in contributions for the 2012 Obama Victory Fund, was one of the guys running Bain when GST went belly-up.
It will be hard for Obama to knock Romney on steel; when Romney was at Bain in 1994, he helped launch Steel Dynamics, which currently employs over 6,000 people.
When it comes to investment choice and American job creation, Obama is simply no match for Romney.
