Singing " Made in the USA" wait? No? Never mind.
Mitt Romney has been trumpeting some pins he made for the Salt Lake Olympic games. He said they were made to bring Americans together. It was a patriotic message the only problem is.... they were made in China.
From the article
Complicating Romney?s patriotic message is the fact that the pins were made in China, according to a website run by the Utah state government?s culture department, as TPM?s Evan McMorris-Santoro pointed out on Twitter.
Outsourcing has been a latent issue in the campaign, and just yesterday the Obama campaign released an ad hitting Romney for ?shipp[ing] American jobs to places like Mexico and China? when he led Bain Capital. Indeed, Bain was outsourcing jobs even while Romney was governor. And his top economic adviser Greg Mankiw (who was recently promoted to chairman of Harvard?s economics department) said that ?offshoring? American jobs is a good thing.
