The Obama campaign blamed Governor Mitt Romney for the demise of GST Steel company in a video they released in May. The plant closed in 2001. Mitt left Bain in 1999.

For some reason the Obama camp forgot to mention this

Obama’s top bundler Jonathan Lavine was in charge of Bain during the GST layoffs.
Blaming Governor Romney for any issues surrounding the failure of GST is wrong and it is a blatant lie. Mitt Romney had been long gone when the company started to fail and subsequently closed it doors. When are the President and his campaign hacks going to get the story correct? When are they going to get back to their economy and its dreadful condition? Mr. President, you can run but you cannot hide.


It turns out that Jonathan Lavine, current Obama bundler, was actually in charge, at Bain, during that period, when the layoffs occurred. Oops, that isn’t right, is it? Yes, that story is the one that needs to be reported on. Sorry Mr. President, your lies are just getting to be more than many of us are able to handle.
And, Jonathan Lavine is not your average Obama Bain donor. Lavine is one of Barack Obama’s top bundlers.

ABC reported:
While Democrats assail presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital business practices, Republicans note that President Obama has not been bashful about accepting cash from Bain executives or other high-profile figures in the corporate buyout business…

…One of Obama’s top campaign financiers – Jonathan Lavine – is also managing director at Bain, bundling between $100,000 and $200,000 in contributions for the 2012 Obama Victory Fund, according to estimates released by the Obama campaign. The president has also relied on other leading figures in the private equity sector as hosts for high-dollar fundraisers and as members of his Jobs Council.

Thank you for posting! I tired to rep you, but have to spread more around first.

It sure is quiet on this thread, though, as the lefties do not like to be confronted with the truth. Can't wait to see how they attempt to spin this one.

This is not part of the narrative for the left which is why I continue to call them what they are, lying idiots.

Obama's pal Immelt at GE was appointed to be his Jobs Czar.

As hilarious as it seems, GE outsources more American jobs than probably any single US Corporation, pays ZERO taxes, and gives China our technology!

Over 50% of GE's workforce are NOT Americans and are NOT living in the USA.

So your point is, the Obama campaign knew about what took place because they knew people that were involved? How unfair of Obama!

I realize in the RWNJ world, when you get money from a political contributor, that contributor then owns you. That's not as true with the Dems or what remains of the Repubs.

If Bain's ousourcing is so bad, why were so many close Oblama affiliates involved with it?

WOW!!! I wasn't aware the Obama Kool Aid was THAT strong!!!

Ummmmmm....to put this on a 1st grader level:

Obama attacks Romney for GST STeel Layoffs.

Romney wasn't in charge of Bain Capital when GST Steel laid off workers.

The guy that WAd in charge of Bain Capital when GST STeel laid off workers is now Obama's Top Bundler.

Get it now?

The offshoring is something that several companies do to improve their bottom line. I think it is a short term high they get as it winds up hurting their own sales by reducing customer base. My opinion is, long term it would be better to accept slightly less profit, in exchange for a lasting market. But that is my opinion and obviously companies make their own decisions, good or bad. The point with Romney is that he is running away from the business decisions he made, instead of owning up to and defending them if he thinks they were the right thing to do. To me, that shows a real lack of character and certainly not one I would not want in the WH.
