Mitt Romney says he is an expert in "job creation" but has only created jobs in foreign countries?

Why isn't he more specific with his expertise? Mitt Romney has been known to buy up many manufacturing companies along with other partners, outsource all of the jobs, and then sell the company at a highly inflated due to the extremely low overhead costs by employing people willing to work for a few dollars a day. In fact, he has laid of more middle class Americans than he has hired after taking over a company, so mathematically he hasn't created a single job on American soil.

Is it any wonder why so many conservative engineers despise Mitt Romney?


How typical of Mitt Romney's brainless supporters. I'm not even a democrat, but your Mitt Romney is no different than Obama. Let's face the facts.

Update 2:

NCR Elite: American jobs belong to the American people. It is because of uneducated idiots like you that support such policies that allow corporate America to outsource middle class jobs why the middle class is disappearing. I never said business depends on feelings, but because of free-trade policies, the only major job creation that has happened are minimum wage jobs in the service industry, while manufacturing, engineering, and R&D jobs are being outsourced and middle class professionals are being forced into minimum wage jobs.

If you can't see the good in bringing back tariffs, then you truly are not a conservative, but a corporatist puppet.

    Are you talking about the jobs created by Staples in 20 countries around the world? Bc really, your rant makes no sense otherwise.

    Mitt makes tough decision in order to make and keep companies solvent. It's a harsh reality, but it's the way the world works. Sacrificing the few to save the many should be a concept liberals readily appreciate. That is what you're asking your current president to do, btw. Class warfare all around us, but I suppose that's okay bc those ppl are rich.

    That is false. An industrial bakery near my home was on the verge of bankruptcy when it was purchased by Bain Capital. Tough decisions were made, and new managers were brought in. Today the company is healthy, expanding, and has more jobs than before.

    One of the biggest hurdles they had was the real estate, which had been purchased in a highly questionable manner by the US Small Business Administration in a bidding war against Bain. The SBA then turned around and attempted to make a profit by selling it back to Bain, literally holding the company and its employees hostage in the interim.

    So how plenty have Obama's created? better than a million/2 of GE's workers are in foreign places international locations and Obama pronounced, "we've plenty to learn from GE." And government-owned GE has outsourced hundreds of hundreds extra.

    really? because I don't see facts I just see regurgitated verbal diarrhea from Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

    What are Obama's credentials on job creation?

    By the way, businesses aren't run on feelings. If that were the case everyone would win at casino games and they would shut down. Don't be stupid.

    No, sh!thead. Bain financed Staples, for example, which employs lots of people in the US. You are a moron. a typical Democrat.
