Mitt's outsourcing problem

'You should see how little we pay the Chinese'
The Mitt-wit is in trouble on a number of fronts, from immigration to job creation.

As part of his myth as a "job creator," Mitt has been touting his time as the main man at Bain Capital.

Well, as is always the case with Republicans, facts get in the way.

The Washington Post, whose own polls skew toward Republicans, published a story June 22, with the headline: "Romney's Bain Capital invested in companies that moved jobs overseas."

The news isn't that startling.

Bain Capital came of age, in the '80s-'90s, when American companies saw the huge value in exploiting workers in a changing China. This now-hybrid communist/capitalist country, along with much of its citizenry, welcomed such exploitation.

As Chinese workers realize, though, that they can't afford to purchase the products they produce, they will become even more disenchanted with their lot in life. Unrest is likely to follow.

It's something that they'll have in common with American workers.

America was founded on slavery and, while slavery per se no longer exists, terrible exploitation of workers exists from China to India to Mexico.

The choice for American voters is this: Do you want a president, like the Mitt-wit, who knows how to make millions sending jobs overseas or do you want a president, like Barack Obama, trying to bring those jobs back home to America.

In other words, do you want to be unemployed and forced to buy your basic necessities at Walmart, which only sells goods made in China and other foreign countries, or do you want to have a job in America and be able to buy from any American store you choose?

I think the answer is obvious.

The Mitt-wit represents the 1 percent and wants to increase the American unemployment rate by outsourcing even more American jobs overseas.

President Obama represents the 99 percent and wants more Americans to have decent jobs here at home.

I'm backing Barack.
