The Washington Post gives the Obama people FOUR PINOCCHIOS for LYING...yes, not ME, but the Liberal Washington Post. When the Romney folks saw what Obama was doing, they tried to get the truth known. HERE is the article about that....read that carefully, you'll be amazed at what Obama tried to pull....until The Washington Post's OWN "Fact Checker" did their homework and came up with the truth.
Here's some of that.............
A better source for Romney’s behavior as an investor might be someone who actually worked on Wall Street, such as former Obama auto czar Steven Rattner. “Bain Capital is not now, nor has it ever been, some kind of Gordon Gekko-like, fire-breathing corporate raider that slashed and burned companies, immolating jobs wherever they appear in its path,” Rattner wrote in Politico this year. Yup, Steve Rattner, OBAMA's auto czar.
Regarding the outsourcing claims, we have frowned on these before. The Obama campaign rests its case on three examples of Bain-controlled companies sending jobs overseas. But only one of the examples — involving Holson Burns Group — took place when Romney was actively managing Bain Capital.
Regarding the other claims, concerning Canadian electronics maker SMTC Manufacturing and customer service firm Modus Media, the Obama campaign tries to take advantage of a gray area in which Romney had stepped down from Bain — to manage the Salt Lake City Olympics — but had not sold his shares in the firm. We had previously given the Obama campaign Three Pinocchios for such tactics.
The Modus Media case is also not an example of shipping jobs overseas. The company closed one plant in California and transferred the jobs to North Carolina, Washington and Utah. At the same time, it opened an unrelated plant in Mexico. The Obama campaign once trumpeted the fact that we had dinged a conservative Super PAC for making the same leap in logic.
You see, that Romney was a 'corporate raider' is false. So, Obama has an ad using the Washington Post as a source that Romney sent jobs overseas, but the Washington Post's own Fact Checker ends its exposure of the lie with:
