    Now, in contrast, how many jobs has Barrack Obama ever saved or created before he decided to turn around America? It is very safe to say none.

    If you genuinely want to understand what is really happening in the world you should look for other sources other than nonsense like 'Think Progress' The name alone should make you suspicious.
    I'd have to agree with you Grant. Seems Calamity really needs to spit out his Kool Aid before it kills him, along with killing the country.

That's a good thing also because many of these countries need investment and wouldn't expect US wages. So Mitt Romney is creating international wealth, something we should all applaud.

    However he did create wealth in the United States also. Union-backed ad says Mitt Romney's investments created zero jobs | PolitiFact

    Whatever your political leanings might be, I doubt that anyone can ever make the claim that a neophyte like Barrack Obama ever created more jobs than a Mitt Romney.

    Do you think refusing to release something that people want (without any particular reason for wanting them) is an indication that the person refusing to release them is hiding something? Do you have that same opinion on Obama refusing to release his college records?
    College records are not something that are normally released in the course of running for President....nice try. Tax Records on the other hand are, without question, always produced. Romney was the first in a long long time that refused to release more than a couple of years. Completely different scenario.

    Romney didn't consider himself special and he was not his father and his circumstances were quite different from his father's and most other candidates. He respected the privacy of those named on his tax returns and did not want their names dragged through the mud just because of the association beween himself and them. Now if you don't understand that, I doubt anything I would say would convince you. Whether or not one considers it acceptable is of course a personal opinion.

    You should be asking yourself though how Harry Reid 'knew' Romney had paid no taxes for years--a bald faced lie as it turned out. Such information should have been completely private and something Reid would not have known unless Romney disclosed it. If he coerced or bribed or was just given the information by somebody in the IRS, THAT would be something the American people should be very concerned about.

    By outsourcing American jobs.....not exactly something that I think most Americans would believe is a good thing. Nice attempt at spin however.

    I would love to see Romney get the nod and lose again. I do not like him at all.

    No spin.
    Romney made a personal fortune running private equity and venture capital firm Bain Capital, and super PACs are spending millions to show investments that ended with lost jobs and Bain profits.

    That’s an incomplete snapshot of Bain’s portfolio — in fact, at least several of Bain's companies mushroomed, creating thousands of jobs.

    So that claim that Bain Capital and Romney created zero jobs is:


    Spinning it that he didn't create any jobs is dishonest spin. Some would call it a lie. It should be noted that it was a Union who produced the ad.

    What spin are you referring to? Those jobs he "outsourced" may not have been economically viable in the US but would might be in place like Guatemala or Honduras. These countries, and many others, would welcome such investments.

    Other jobs were created in America, many thousands of them, because it made sense to do so. Had you read the link you would have understood this, but it seems you prefer your beliefs over knowledge.

    Yeah, "killing the patient to save him." Isn't that a bit like what "W" did in Iraq?

    Conservatives and their broken compasses. I tell ya...
