Former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu schools Andrea Mitchell on Barack Obama’s outsourced stimulus jobs record
Barack Obama’s campaign has made an issue out of the fact that Bain outsourced some jobs to foreign countries and tried to pin the blame on Mitt Romney, but as it turns out this is a falsehood and the outsourced jobs in question did not occur while Mitt Romney was involved with Bain. This has not stopped the Obama campaign from repeating the lie (someone in Germany once said something about repeating a lie until it is the truth, but I digress) and that is fine because this now affords us the opportunity to look at Barack Obama’s stimulus record–turnabout is fair play.
Unfortunately for Barack Obama the outsourcing of jobs is something he is quite familiar with because it turns out that nearly $29 billion in stimulus money was outsourced to create jobs in foreign countries. The fact that taxpayer money was used to fund job creation in other countries is an ugly little fact the Obama regime would have preferred to keep secret but because Barack Obama tried to paint Mitt Romney with the outsourcing label it is now coming to light.
Former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu (not to be confused with his son who was and still should be my senator) appeared on Andrea Mitchell’s show to discuss the outsourcing issue and he quickly had her fumbling around trying to defend Barack Obama’s stimulus outsourcing while criticizing Mitt Romney’s non-outsourcing at the same time.
This is priceless:
