In an Ohio GOP hotbed, Obama says Romney tax plan would create jobs overseas, not at home

Source: AP

CINCINNATI — President Barack Obama on Monday mocked Mitt Romney’s economic vision, saying the only jobs plan his Republican rival has would create plenty of work for people overseas.

Campaigning in battleground Ohio, Obama again tried to erode Romney’s credentials as a businessman equipped to fix the sluggish economy.

The president said Romney’s proposal to free companies from taxes on their foreign holdings would lead to job creation abroad, not at home. He cited a new tax analysis that concludes that such a tax policy could displace American workers.

“I want to give tax breaks to companies that are investing right here in Ohio, that are investing in Cincinnati,” Obama told a supportive crowd in the first official town hall event of his re-election campaign. “I want to give incentives to companies that are investing in you, the American people, to create American jobs making American goods ... That’s why I’m running for president of the United States”

1. It was a thing of beauty.


Obama's on a roll at these events - Romney's hiding at a fundraiser.

5. And that is why is infuriates me when I hear Democrats especially complain that Obama

isn't out there talking to the people; or, his message is off; or, he's not forceful enough.

I don't understand where these people have been. The president has been EVERYWHERE!

Just because you may not see it on the tee-vee doesn't mean that it didn't happen!!!!

7. The GOP can do a workaround

by repealing the minimum wage. The more people who earn less there are the more the economy will grow. 2+2=3.

9. It might help to not sign any more job-transferring "free-trade" agreements.

 

How's that repeal of NAFTA going?

11. The city of Cincinnati is not a GOP hotbed

The suburbs around Cincy are, but that is not where he was visiting.
