Obama for America Releases New Television Advertisement: “Since When”
CHICAGO—Today Obama for America released a new television advertisement titled “Since When” to highlight Mitt Romney’s long-standing commitment to outsourcing. When Romney led Bain Capital, they invested in a Chinese company called Global Tech, which relied on American outsourcing for its success. Even though Global Tech promoted its practices of exploiting low-wage labor, Romney and Bain saw Global Tech as a good investment. So now, when Mitt Romney tries to talk tough on China, it’s just embarrassing. The American people know that trusting Romney to hold China accountable is like asking a fox to guard the henhouse.
“Since When” will air in New Hampshire, Virginia, Florida, Ohio, Iowa, Colorado, Nevada.
Barack Obama:"I'm Barack Obama and I approve this message."
"These appliances could have been made here in America. But a company called Global Tech maximized profits by paying its workers next to nothing...under sweatshop conditions...in China. When Mitt Romney led Bain, they saw Global Tech...as a good investment....even knowing that the firm promoted its practice of exploiting low-wage labor to its investors. Mitt Romney, tough on China? Since when?"
