The man can't even tie his shoe straight. How many ideas is Obama going to steal from Romney? Romney criticizes Obama's handling on China trade and presto new trade suit and then he has the nerve to launch a personal attack to cover up his shortcomings. Obama is a failed president.


Filing Trade Suit, Obama Raps Romney on China - NYTimes.com

Quote:
President Obama, under renewed fire from Mitt Romney for not standing up to China on behalf of American workers, used a rally in this battleground state on Monday to announce a new trade case against Beijing. He said it was Mr. Romney who had sent jobs to China through his zealous practice of outsourcing at Bain Capital.
After
a week of anti-American violence in the Middle East threw Mr. Romney off stride and left Mr. Obama potentially vulnerable, the shift to China put the presidential campaign and both candidates back on familiar ground, allowing each to try out new lines to showcase their toughness and caricature the fecklessness of their opponent.
“My opponent has been running around Ohio claiming he’s going to roll up his sleeves and he’s going take the fight to China,” the president said to a crowd of 4,500 at a hillside park here. “Here’s the thing: his experience has been owning companies that were called pioneers in the business of outsourcing jobs to countries like China.”
“Ohio,” the president declared, “you can’t stand up to China when all you’ve done is send them our jobs.”
Mr. Obama, deploying the full powers of incumbency, announced that the United States would file a broad lawsuit against China at the
World Trade Organization, charging that it subsidizes its auto and auto parts industries to the detriment of American manufacturers.

I wasn't surprised. . . .the ad campaign here in Colorado is very much about how Bain pioneered outsourcing to China. Seems a nice link to follow it up with political action.

What do you think the verdict will be ? the WTO should tell him " well you bailed out the auto industry is that not a subsidy? what is your complaint? Notice, the debate was about currency manipulation and changed to subsidies. Maybe Obama knew the U S would look like hypocrites since we are printing money constantly and devaluing USD. I mean how can the U S with a straight face call anyone a currency manipulater. Instead of the shiinning city on the hill we have become a bunch of hypocrites.

Obama knows Romney is the best candidate, after all imitation is the greatest form of flattery.

President Obama told a September 26 rally at Kent State University in Ohio, "I want to see us export more jobs." Then he caught himself and continued, "Export more products -- excuse me. In fact, impartial observers are concluding that Romney, not Obama, will bring back exported American jobs.

So why is the Obama campaign making a mountain out of this molehill? Perhaps they are doing so in order to hide the real mountain. President Obama has been outsourcing American jobs on a grand scale. Take his lack of response to Chinese trade manipulations.

Obama has already exported about 415,000 jobs to China
Since President Obama took office, the U.S. has lost 582,000 manufacturing jobs (from 12,552,000 manufacturing workers in Jan. 2009 to 11,970,000 in Aug. 2012). Most of these jobs were exported to China. Obama has imposed a few anti-dumping tariffs and has filed a few WTO complaints against China, but none of his actions has had any noticeable effect upon the trade balance, which, as shown in the graph above, has been worsening for 23 straight months. If Obama is re-elected, the bleeding of jobs to China will likely continue.

From the OP's link:

Quote:
“We’ve brought more trade cases against China in one term than the previous administration did in two – and every case we’ve brought that’s been decided, we won,” Mr. Obama said.
So not actually following Romney at all. In fact, it sounds more like Romney is just saying whatever he wants, and often ignoring reality. Which is hardly a surprise, I'll grant.
