Description

"The Obama campaign accuses Mitt Romney in new campaign ad of being a “pioneer in outsourcing,” repeating a charge that the Romney campaign has strenuously contested over the past week. The ad refers back to a June Washington Post story that showed Bain Capital invested in firms that created jobs overseas. The Romney campaign demanded a retraction of the story, to no avail, and more recently pointed to a FactCheck.org analysis questioning the “outsourcing” charge. The Obama campaign has dismissed the FactCheck.org assessment as inaccurate and penned a letter to the truth-squadding website disputing its conclusions. And its newest commercial re-ups the attack on Romney’s business record. “What a president believes matters,” the ad begins. “Mitt Romney’s companies were pioneers in outsourcing U.S. jobs to low-wage countries. He supports tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas.”
