During the last few days, the re-elect Obama campaign has been less than honest regarding Mitt Romney and the outsourcing of jobs to the point that several liberal pundits have even called them on it. Despite the fact that Glen Kessler of The Washington Post's "The Fact Checker" gave the ad a 'Four Pinocchio' rating, the Obama campaign has continued to aggressively play it in the media.
The evidence is clear that the Obama campaign has been less than honest about Mitt Romney's outsourcing of job as related to Bain Capital. Andrea Mitchell at the Obama spin machine known as MSNBC still got caught doing her most pathetic imitation of Democratic political hack Debbie Wasserman-Shultz spewing the Democratic party propaganda , when New Hampshire Governor John Sununu wiped up the floor with her.
Former White House spokesman Robert Gibbs tried to keep the left wing spin machine rolling on the subject with CNN's Candy Crowley.
Not only was the Obama campaign dishonest about the outsourcing of jobs by Mitt Romney, but they have now opened themselves up to much more scrutiny and questions regarding the FEDERAL outsourcing of jobs.
According to the Washington Times, in August of 2009 more than $105,000,000 went to GM to produce high volume battery packs for the Chevy Volt. Those cell packs were to be produced in South Korea and "by other providers to be named later". In the same article Jerry Seper reported that a larger grant for more than $299,000,000 went to Johnson Controls Inc. for the production of nickel-cobalt-metal battery cells and packs at plants it planned to build in Holland, Mich., and Lebanon, Ore. Johnson had partnered with Saft Advanced Power Solutions LLC, a French company, to develop the batteries. Saft, which makes its batteries in France, also won a separate $95.5 million grant. A123 Systems Inc., which received $249.1 million, produces its batteries in China.
Kathryn Lynch-Morin at mlive.com reported on December 13, 2011 that more than 180 Korean nationals were in Midland, Michigan helping to set up and test equipment at the Dow Kokam battery plant. Area union officials say the work could be done by local trades men and women. "To blatantly say these are high tech installation jobs, and cannot be performed by Michigan Tradesmen is a bending of the truth," said William Borch, upstate business agent for Ironworkers Local 25. "The rate of unemployment for Michigan construction workers is near 29 percent and Midland's neighboring Isabella County has the highest unemployment rate in the state. It is hard to believe that we allow this travesty."

In addition, according to
Obama's stimulus included over $8.5 billion in grants for wind farms that flowed overseas, despite Congressional criticism from both sides of the aisle. In total, over half of the money went to either foreign developers or foreign wind turbine manufacturers, creating thousands of jobs overseas with money that was supposed to create jobs within the United States. Even worse, hundreds of millions of dollars went to wind farms that began construction before the stimulus was passed. The end result of all this spending: the wind energy industry lost 10,000 jobs last year. Obamanomics Outsourced also adds, "General Electric Cancelled An Order From Wind Turbine Manufacturer ATI Casting In Order To Get The Parts Cheaper From China. After ATI Offered To Match The Price, GE Still Refused The Order. ATI Was Forced To Layoff 302 Workers Due To The Move. General Electric Has Also Been Criticized For Using Chinese Made Wind Towers Over American Towers At The Stimulus Funded Shepherds Flat Wind Farm In Oregon."
Although Obamanomics Outsourced is an online information publication sponsored by the Republican Party, the fact that General Electric Chief Executive Officer Jeffery Immelt currently holds a position in the Obama Administration as America's "Job's Czar" should raise an eyebrow or two, as pointed out by CNN's Wolf Blitzer and Jack Cafferty.
It is apparent that David Axelrod and the Obama minions were less than brilliant in attacking Mitt Romney on this issue. The mass exportation of jobs by General Electric and its contractors with "Jobs Czar" and GE CEO Jeffery Immelt was an issue that was ripe for exploitation, and the Obama Campaign opened the door for this obvious conflict of interest to receive more exposure. Jobs and the economy are the pressing issues in most households across America. The people who live in the glass house just threw a rock. That is a move that would NOT be considered wise by most reflective thinkers.
