Romney: Overseas Job Creator

•••• Here is another gem from Vice President Joe Biden----

"You've got to give Mitt Romney credit," the vice president said. "He is a job creator--in Singapore, and China, India. He's been very good at creating jobs overseas."

Earlier this week, President Obama called Romney "an outsourcing pioneer," as noted in this report from NPR:

"Gov. Romney's commitment to outsourcing is not just part of his record, it's part of his overall economic vision that he and Republicans in Congress want to implement if they win this election," Obama said.

The Obama campaign has seized on reports that the private equity firm Romney once ran made investments in companies that were described as "pioneers" in outsourcing jobs to China and India....

While Romney got rich, Americans lost jobs when he was with Bain.  Would a  "President" Romney allow corporations to receive tax credits for jobs created overseas

***  I love the title of this video---"Mandel Lies and Insults NBC4 Columbus." 

Josh Mandel has been lying about  Sen. Sherrod Brown's voting record. Ohioans feel insulted by Mandel's lack of effort in his job as Ohio Treasurer and his arrogance.

Huffington Post:

...Mandel, a Tea Party favorite, is not the first Republican Senate hopeful to lash out at the press, or dodge questions about contentious competitor exchanges. In 2010, then-Senate candidate for Nevada Sharon Angle called a local reporter an "idiot" and another word that could not be repeated. In 2006, Tom Kean Jr., a Senate candidate for New Jersey, ran from a press contingent and into an elevator when questioned about statements made by his opponent. Angle and Kean both lost to Democrats Harry Reid and Bob Menendez respectively. 

Brown's campaign characterized Mandel's actions as "bizarre" and criticized him for the comment. 

"Josh Mandel's bizarre attack on a reporter whose only crime was questioning another Mandel lie shows he's clearly in denial about a string of damaging stories from skipping every Board of Deposit meeting his first year in office to hiring unqualified cronies at the taxpayers' expense to being shamed into returning 100k in questionable campaign contributions," Brown campaign spokeswoman Sadie Weiner said in a statement. "Mandel's refusal to admit he's lying in the face of irrefutable evidence to the contrary is a stunning example that he's just another politician who can't be trusted."

Mandel is telling the lies, yet he attacks the reporter???  


Why does Ohio throw out hundreds of thousands of provisional ballots???  The Courthouse News Service has information about a lawsuit against Ohio Secretary of State Jon Hust concerning the tossing out of the provisional ballots in recent elections.  You can read the article here.
