Romney and a jerk of a Mayor in New Jersey, claim that Obama is ‘attacking free enterprise’.
No they are presenting Romney’s ‘job creator’ record.
Romney just can’t make up his mind on how many he created.
But that’s what happens when you lie. You can’t remember the truth.
Misinformation. Disinformation. Lies. Mitt Romney. 2012.
‘Mitt Romney, who has been silent up to this point on the Obama campaign’s extensive attacks on his private equity career, defended his experience in an interview with conservative blogger Ed Morissey’.
‘Here’s what he said’:
‘The most recent attacks are really off target and I think they know. They said, oh, gosh, Gov. Romney at Bain Capital closed down a steel factory. But the problem, of course, is that the steel factory closed down two years after I left Bain Capital. I was no longer there. So that’s hardly something that was done on my watch. And of course they don’t mention a couple of other things. One is that we were able to help create over 100,000 jobs’.

‘As recently as two weeks ago, Romney had a fairly specific number in mind when it came to the jobs created by his vulture-capitalist firm’.
“I’m very happy in my former life; we helped create over 100,000 new jobs.”
‘A few days ago, the total dropped’.
“People here in the state know that in the work that I had, we started a number of businesses, invested in many others, and that over all created tens of thousands jobs.”
‘This morning, the Romney campaign unveiled a new ad, which moved the goal post again. Greg Sargent picked up on the new message’:
‘The ad claims Romney only created “thousands of jobs,” which is the latest shift in his campaign’s claims’.
‘So, over the course of two weeks, Romney has gone from “over 100,000 jobs” to “tens of thousands” to “thousands.”

‘The number of jobs Romney presided over at Bain has varied widely according to his own estimates. When he ran against Ted Kennedy in 1994, Romney said he created 10,000 jobs while at Bain. During the 2012 presidential campaign, Romney’s campaign has claimed he created “over 100,000 new jobs,” “tens of thousands jobs” and “thousands of jobs” at Bain. It’s impossible to know if any of these figures are accurate—every time the Romney campaign is pressed on the details, the number of jobs he created at Bain seems to decrease’.
