JT: Bain never outsourced one job while he was at Bain. Not one!

Just because someone at Bain did, long after Romney had gone, doesn`t mean Romney had anything to do with it.

Bragging?
Sounded like he was simply reporting what he saw at a factory in China.

@andybme: [quote]Kinda confirms the fact that he did ship American jobs to China and even shopped for factories to buy to send them to.[/quote]How do you figure? The factory was in China to begin with. *IF* he ended up buying it, then the factory stayed in China. Jobs weren`t shipped anywhere as a result of his assumed purchase; they stayed put.

@VirtualParty: Do you understand was the word `slave` means and implies? By Romney`s statements, we find that these women are both given wages, and strongly desire their environments.

Next time you think about calling me out for something, just stop, think, and then don`t.

I`m not a Romney fan either, but he obviously wasn`t bragging about purchasing the factory. He was making a point of how good we have it in the west. It was actually a very poignant anecdote.

so basicly, saying it is worse in some countries equals saying it is good in america? wow.. i must be Very rich cause i saw a documentary about a family in africa that didnt have running water. i totaly understand now why the idea is to take away from the rich lower classes. not really sure why to give it to the richer upper classes though but that should probably be normal, i mean, i wasnt smart enough to see how incredibly rich americans are, even at the bottem.

Soooooo... Where does the bragging part come in? It seems to me like he was actually trying to point out how good we have it here.

I`m not a huge Romney fan, but I have to defend him here. I think some idiots are taking this the wrong way. If you are one of those idiots, then please do not vote, FOR ANY CANDIDATE.

"I do not believe that the capitalists and the landlords are all exploiters by an inherent necessity or that there is a basic or irreconcilable antagonism between their interests and those of the masses. All exploitation is based on co-operation, willing or forced, of the exploited. However much we may detest admitting it, the fact remains that there would be no exploitation if people refuse to obey the exploiter." - Gandhi

I believe this post should relieve Madest of any intellectual credence he might have had up to this point. His silence on this thread is testament to his blindness to the facts.

Next stop, Romney gives us the synopsis Of Schindler`s List and is accused of the holocaust.

No, by madest`s logic, witnessing a car accident is the same as causing the accident, pissing on the injured, and then setting the leaking gas tank on fire.

VirtualParty. Where does it say he -bought- the factory? He said that they went there to -buy- the factory, which, does not mean that they -bought- it.

Are people who wear blue ties so bitter that they come to conclusions when LITERALLY no proof to said conclusions are present?

Plus, as someone else said, would you rather these women not make any wages at all?

HumanAction were you even paying attention? He said they -bought- the factory, visa vie, they were slaves in part to him. Were we even watching the same video? Are people who wear red ties so blind that they must LITERALLY ignore proof when it`s being shoved in their faces?

This footage is neither here nor there. I`m not sure what the poster is trying to say with this. I`VE seen specials on chinese factories on discovery channel. Nothing much else seems to be said here (and I am ANTI Romney so i was LOOKING for it)

Hmmm... sounds like Romney abhors and is appalled by the conditions in the factory. What kind of moron would think that this was an admission of using slave labor?

Oh... nevermind.

Madest is being an idiot again, just ignore this.

All Romney was saying is that we have it better in America than in China, big freaking deal.

Hey Madest, are you going to return your iphone and Apple laptop now because they are made by the same Chinese women laborers?

So apparently, according to madest, witness the "mistreatment" of these women making a better life for themselves, is the same as contributing to the "mistreatment".

So, by madest`s logic, witnessing a car accident is the same as being in the accident...

So, Chinese women line up by the hundreds to be slaves?

Of course, all these women would be much better off if we closed that factory and put them all out on the streets to starve.

Tbh it isnt even an admission of partaking in it...merely witnessing a society of government more concerned with protecting the government than the people. That is what he saw, and fairly compared it (and realistically so) to American society. Truth is Americans are a bit spoiled....not trying to step on any toes but as far as canadian media implies it is completely taken for granted.

Not bragging.... Biased caption.

Oh... and being born here doesn`t mean America made you better. It means that without the boot of government on your neck and life, you made America better for us all.

Get it right..... for those of you that think government built it for us. We built it!

[quote]the bragging about using slave labor part is meant to signify that Mitt understood the conditions that these workers were living in...and used them anyway.

that is deplorable. you KNOW the workers you are using are being paid pennies a day, treated like cattle and given no hope for a better life and think, yep, I`ll use them.[/quote]

And now think about their conditions if no one went there and offered the labor.
That people go there and wait for hours in long lines just to get one of these "slave" jobs should tell you how much of an improvement it is over their current job.
Yes it looks like slave labor to us because we think 2 dollars (or whatever) per day is way too low but for them it`s many times more than what they get from pulling plows with bare hands.

Caption FAIL! Listen to the whole thing -- not even close to what the caption says. He was commenting on an existing Chinese factory that did NOT belong to Bain and how grateful people should be living in America where we do not have such situations.

Don`t just make crap up, madest

Madest: ONce again you are clueless. The message I got form this is Romney recognizes how lucky we are in the US compared to China.

Please go commit suicide. You will be doing the world a favor.

Slave labor? I think this needs a title change. Mr. Romney was not bragging about anything other than the US being a better place to live than China.
