« New at CJR: The search for a post-decision narrative | Main | On the Media interview on Romney and Bain »

July 09, 2012


In addition to its dishonesty, the ad wrongly implies that a President will take the same actions as he did in private business. The demands of the two jobs are entirely different, so a President will perform different tasks.

Worrying that Romney's Bain background would lead him to outsource jobs as President is as silly as worrying (in 1976) that President Carter's background would lead him to devote his Presidency to growing peanuts.

Andrea Mitchell of MSNBC tried to defend the President's ad on Outsourcing, but John Sununu effectively showed why this issue may turn out to be a loser for Obama. You can watch the interview at http://weaselzippers.us/2012/07/10/must-watch-romney-surrogate-john-sununu-steamrolls-andrea-mitchell/
