Obama’s ad turns again to a recent Washington Post report that several businesses backed by Romney’s former private equity firm moved American jobs to China and India to cut costs. In a parting shot, a narrator says Romney is “not the solution. He’s the problem.”

Lie, repeat, then Lie again.

This is the same Washington Post that had this to say about Obama's ad's.

The Obama campaign apparently loves to ding former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney with the charge of “outsourcing.” On several occasions, we have faulted the campaign for its claims, apparently to little avail.

The Pinocchio Test

The Obama campaign fails to make its case. On just about every level, this ad is misleading, unfair and untrue, from the use of “corporate raider” to its examples of alleged outsourcing. Simply repeating the same debunked claims won’t make them any more correct.

Obama's team twisted the fact that we are living in an open market society of modern global village. The real issue about China is the unfair trade practices that America and the rest of the world must deal with such an opportunistic exploitative dragon. Wonder, if Obama looks to borrow more cash from China to fund his forwarding deficit over the cliff? Team Obama uses big words without mentioning biggest deficit, big unemployment of 8+%, biggest food stamps, big taxation is on the way (penalty? IRS?), and big divider in chief. Four more years of same problems and getting worse? The world needs to spread fairness, accountability; for "spreading the wealth" is not the solution. Cheers.

Ha! One liar wagging his finger at the other liar while chanting "liar, liar, pants on fire". Enough with both of the bozos. NAFTA had more to do with the hollowing out of manufacturing than just Bain. But the biggest cause is the myriad regulations(decreed by non-elected agencies) and the tax codes that push companies either out of business or to friendlier pastures. Blame Big Government economic fascism.

China does not take seriously this kind of 'shows' by both Obama & part of the MUST DO in recent years before elections. The fact is the big three are enjoying substantial share of profit from global operations especially the fast growing Chinese market..

Both Ford & GM have growing number of new plants & market share in China. If things turn really sour, outputs from these plants will have no market elsewhere in Asia -- except a few models of European origin, the over-sized American styled cars donot fit into Asia's narrower roads & parking lots..not to mention the high gas consumption, weaker brand awareness of American brands like Buick, Chevolet & average image of quality.

The June jobs report released Friday found that the economy added only 80,000 jobs during the month and unemployment stayed at 8.2%

"The private sector is doing fine."
