Have a heaping helping of irony: Shameless Mitt calls the President "Outsourcer in chief"

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — Mitt Romney brought his presidential campaign to the West Slope of Colorado Tuesday, looking to energize his base here in a heavily Republican part of the state and highlight the continuing struggle to bring back jobs in a region where unemployment is higher than other parts of the nation.

“When people in Washington say they’re lowering taxes, hold on to your wallet,” Romney said before an enthusiastic audience that formed a theater-in-the-round for the candidate inside the high school gym. “For job creators and small businesses, he announced a massive tax increase,” Romney said, drawing boos from the audience.

“This president has been outsourcing a good deal of American jobs himself by putting money into energy companies, solar and wind energy companies that end up making their products outside the United States,” he said. “If there is an outsourcer in chief, it’s the president of the United States, not the guy who’s running to replace him.”

Several times during the event, Romney praised former Democratic president Bill Clinton, who he noted called himself “a new Democrat.”
