Pickup Patriots on Mitt Romney: He Sucked at Job Creation...anywhere but here!!!
Romney and Speaker O'Brien must operate with the same set of principles: Job creation anywhere BUT HERE. Romney as CEO of Bain advised corporate behemoths to expand - in India and China - while O'Brien created a company that outsourced legal jobs to India.
Not only did Romney pull an O'Brien when he was in the private sector - create jobs anywhere but here - but when he was in the Governor's office, job creation wasn't on his political radar.
The tagline for both pols could read:
“Job creation anywhere BUT HERE.”
According to Ron Paul's campaign in a message released after last night’s debate, Romney sucked at job creation while Governor of Massachusetts:
“From 2003 to 2007 while Romney was Governor, Massachusetts ranked 47th in the nation for jobs growth. Job growth was 0.9% (National average 5%) Market Watch
After Romney’s first year in office, Massachusetts ranked 50/50 Market Watch
Between 2002 and 2006, manufacturing payroll employment declined by over 14% (3rd worst in country) - national average was 7% Boston Globe
Average weekly wage of workers in Massachusetts increased by $1 between 2001 and 2006 (inflation adjusted) Reuters
Real output of goods and services grew just 9% (the rate for the US as a whole was 13%) Reuters
Yours in hauling out the political trash...
