Romney’s true record on job creation

Today elitist Rockefeller Republican Mitt Romney announced he will run for President. In his ad, he talked about creating good jobs and the usual GOP talking points of the last 21 years.


Mitt Romney bragging about creating jobs in the Private sector and his time with Bain Capital. Well the truth is Mitt Romney didn’t create jobs. Bain capital took over companies, sent the jobs overseas and then sold those companies. He was a net destroyer of decent paying American jobs.

Likely Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has been out on the pre-campaign trail this month saying he is the man to get Americans back to work, despite a spotty jobs record while on Wall Street.

However, the former private equity firm chief’s fortune — which has funded his political ambitions from the Massachusetts statehouse to his unsuccessful run for the White House in 2008 — was made on the backs of companies that ultimately collapsed, putting thousands of ordinary Americans out on the street. That truth if it becomes widely known could become costly to Romney, who, while making the media rounds recently, told CNN’s Piers Morgan that “People in America want to know who can get 15 million people back to work,” implying he was that person.


Yet Geoffrey Rehnert, who helped start Bain Capital and is now co-CEO of the private equity firm The Audax Group, told me for my Penguin book, “The Buyout of America: How Private Equity Is Destroying Jobs and Killing the American Economy,” that Romney owned a controlling stake in Bain Capital between approximately 1992 and 2001. The firm under his watch took such risks, time and time again.

Mitt Romney is a Transnationalist Republican, who could care less about this country. He is a believe in the International Community and will continue the policy of making America the world’s sucker. Romney will do nothing to create jobs. He will continue to encourage outsourcing and the creation of low paying jobs in America. He is an open borders type and will do nothing to secure our borders or address the issue of illegal workers in America.

Mitt Romney is also a fan of Islam. He has called it an honorable religion and said Jihad is not part of Islam. Clearly he doesn’t grasp the nature of the enemy America faces. This is a problem that 2 out of our 3 last  Presidents didn’t grasp. In Obama’s case, he outright supports Islamic Imperialism.

Romneycare was the blueprint for Obamcare and Obama even praised it. Romney is Progressive Rockefeller Republicans. He’s not the answer, he’s part of the problem.

    steeeeerike threeee!!!!

    yer outta here!

    his company bought a profitable company near here that made high quality construction equipment that was used all over the world…they boxed up the joint, sold it and the factory was literally shipped overseas. this cost a relative of mine and about 50 workers their middle class manufacturing jobs. again, the company was making a good profit every year and had orders into 3 quarters forward.

    so when the liar romney talks about job creation, you all will excuse me when i say that he should blow it out his lying ass.

    Hooray for Gov’nor Romney
    Presidential explorer!
    Could anyone be bore-er?
    Hooray, hooray, hooray!

    His Massachusetts healthcare
    Was copied by Obama
    Vote for him? We don’t wanna
    Hooray, hooray, hooray!

    He hopes that his ambition
    And his gleaming dentition
    Will gain him the position
    Say “Nay!”

    Hooray for Gov’nor Romney
    Presidential explorer
    If he gets beat in early heats maybe he’ll go away

    It is could not care less; not could care less.

    But yes I agree. Romney is a joke of a candidate. He will never win the nomination.

    People assumed I was a Romney supporter in 2008 since I am a Mormon.

    They were surprised to find out he was not on the top of my list. Of course this is the same American population that calls me racist for not supporting Obama’s campaign.

    Are we past the point where we pick candidates because they are good leaders and have a sound political plan for the US?
