Again, it is hard to believe how an ad could be created with so much in it that is the opposite of the truth and/or leaves out what is the actual truth!
A disgraceful action by a President, in my opinion.
President Obama's clean energy initiatives have helped create jobs for projects across America not overseas.
What about Mitt Romney? As a corporate CEO he shipped jobs overseas to places like Mexico, China. As Governor he outsourced state jobs to a call center in India. He's still pushing tax breaks for companies that shipped jobs overseas. It is just what you'd expect from a guy who had a Swiss bank account.
A fierce ad, the problem is that it is just not true..
WHAT WAS LEFT OUT AND/OR WAS DECEPTIVE
Amazingly, there was nothing of true substance at all. Ask yourself what that says about the accuser.
Said: "President Obama's clean energy initiatives have helped create jobs for projects across America."
Left out or spun:
His clean energy initiatives have been unproductive and have created a insignificant number of jobs. Amount of electricity from renewable resources is 4% (was 2%), which is trivial in proportion.
Solyndra went bankrupt - and stuck taxpayers with $500 million they'll have to pay - and a campaign bundler of Obama made money off of his investment. The government, contrary to law, gave up its first security position to the investors - so more money was lost - all of this after the CPA firm warned that cash would run out soon afterward. And a number of other companies that could not compete product cost wise with what is practical and workable went under or are in bankruptcy. .
Said: (at the end of the above sentence:
"...in the US and not overseas. What about Mitt Romney? As a corporate CEO he shipped jobs overseas to places like Mexico, China."
Left out or needing correction:
The Washington Post looked into this claim and found there were 3 instances of outsourcing due to Bain Capital's activitiy.
Two of them happened after Romney left the company in 1999: one of them was in 2001 and the other in 2003 - Romney had nothing to do with those.
The third one occurred on Romney's watch, but the company was going to go bankrupt and they moved to several different locations in the US and could not make a go of them in any of thembut to keep alive and to keep the company employing people in America, they had to outsource some of their raw material stuff to China to get the ingredients in cheaper and as a result ended up savng jobs in the US.
Said: "As Governor he outsourced state jobs to a call center in India."
Left out; Actual Those jobs were already outsourced when he came into office. He ended the outsourcing and at the end only 16 people were left in the call center in India
(Of course, the jobs came back, not to Massachusetts but to Utah where the taxes were lower, but they still came back to the United States.)
Said: "He's still pushing tax breaks for companies that shipped jobs overseas."
He actually wants companies overseas to bring their profits and their revenues back into the United States without facing additional taxation. He wants an amnesty to bring that money back to the United States That would involve a capital flow of a trillion dollars back into the United States, which would do an incredible amount to revivify our economy.
And obama calls it a tax break for companies that ship jobs overseas! Talk about deceptive twisting and, in effect, lying.
WHAT DOES THIS SAY ABOUT OBAMA?
What does this say about the level of trust you can place in Obama?
I am not sure how he could allow 3 dramatically twisted and deceptive ads in a row!???. (See Dishonest Ads.)
Minor, but obvious use of Alinsky's Rules For Radicals: "It is just what you'd expect from a guy who had a Swiss bank account." Left out: There is nothing illegal about that and there was no tax evasion at all, as verified by the US. The implication is that there is something evil about it, but there is nothing at all. This is an attempt to take advantage of the lack of knowledge and perspective about this of the American people.
