Mitt Romney spent yesterday in Colorado: raising cash in Aspen, visiting the fire zone in Colorado Springs and speaking in Grand Junction, where he attempted to flip the script on some of the many Barack Obama campaign commercials currently running in the state by labeling the President the "outsourcer in chief." See two clips from the GJ stop, complete with transcripts courtesy of, as well as photos from these parts courtesy of Romney's Flickr account.

President Obama Is The "Outsourcer-In-Chief"
"By the way, he likes to talk about outsourcing. He's run some interesting attack ads on me on that topic. You may have seen that and interestingly, an independent, unbiased fact-checking organization looked at his ads and looked at that attack and said it's false and misleading.

"But it is interesting that when it comes to outsourcing, that 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.

"If there is an outsourcer-in-chief, it's the President of the United States, not the guy who's running to replace him."

President Obama's Tax-Hike Plan Will Make It Harder To Create Jobs
"I'm here to talk to you about the course for the country and what lies ahead for America. I know that last week the middle class of America got a kick in the gut when the jobs numbers came out.

"We found out we'd created only 80,000 jobs. Our nation needs to create about double that if we're going to keep up with the population growth of our nation and so we're falling further behind under this presidency and that's one reason why we're going to change him and get someone in there who'll get this economy going.

"But, this week, the President added insult to injury with another kick in the gut by announcing that he has a plan, he said, to lower taxes. Now we were all excited when we heard that. But you got to be careful: when people in Washington say they're lowering taxes, hold on to your wallet, because, in fact, he didn't lower taxes for anybody.

"For some people, he announced, your taxes are going to stay the same. In Washington, that means you lowered taxes. So, your taxes are going to be the same. And then for others--for job creators and small businesses--he announced a massive tax increase. So, at the very time the American people are seeing fewer jobs created than we need, the President announces he's going to make it harder for jobs to be created.

"I just don't think this President understands how our economy works."

Funny post, Guest. We're going to make it an upcoming Comment of the Day. Congrats.


Typical republican tactic -- take your own biggest sin and tag your opponent with it. That's how draft-dodger George Bush swiftboated war hero John Kerry. Now Romney puts his own faults on Obama and takes credit for Obama's successes. Before long Mitt will be claiming that HE will be the first black president.

you have no clue what your talking about, 5 of the tax payer backed companies obama supported...out of 7....outsource. get your facts straight


What has Obama outsourced? The GOP are the outsourcers...... That's how Romney/BAIN made its profits. Outsource, then file for bankruptcy....  really patriotic isn't it?

Romney is a Fracker;  He appeared with Republican Senator Steve King demanding an end to all Federal Fracking Oversight.  Scary.
