President Romney Speaking in Michigan today.
Hi Michigan! I'm so glad to be here today, where there are lakes the right size and trees the right height.
Now, you know, this automobile plant is going to close today and we're shipping all your jobs to China.
Don't boo ... you voted!
Don't think of this occasion as a job gone overseas, think of it as a vibrant expression of a free market economy, where the best thing for industry is always the best thing, even if it's not the best for you today. But Americans don't look to today, we Americans look toward tomorrow. That is why we are who we are.
We are here to celebrate the freedom and economic opportunity that derives from our belief in a true American value: the value of investment and the return on that investment. If there were not investment, there would be not return on investment, and therefore no jobs ... jobs that you might hope for, someday.
I like you. The Job Creators like you. Your boss likes you, even if you are no longer employed.
But you have not lost a job, you have gained an opportunity to adapt yourself, to restructure your hopes for prosperity in light of the economic realities that challenge us to be better employees ... world class employees, like the Chinese.
This isn't about workers bargaining and feeling entitled ... this is about hard-working Americans. Proud, independent Americans, who see a challenge and set themselves to the task of carving out a niche for themselves on their own merit and not slaving under the yoke of some socialistic union.
We are free Americans, free to look for a job ... and accept that job it for what it is. Our realism, our dedication to hard work, whatever the rewards ... that is what makes us who we are.
We are in this together. Workers and job creators, all working to create the most efficient economy the world has ever known, right here in Michigan, here in the USA and all the untapped labor resources in countries all over the world.
We will never forget your contribution and, as always, we'll keep your resume on file.
