Obama touts his record on China

Cincinnati, OH (CNN) - The presidential campaign took on an international tone on Monday with both sides criticizing the other’s record on trade relations with China.

Just hours after the Romney campaign released a new ad promising to “crack down on cheaters like China,” President Obama announced at an outdoor rally here that his administration is launching a new enforcement action against China with the World Trade Organization (WTO) for providing illegal subsidies on automotive exports.

    I can only assume that truth and myview missed the part where Obama says (and it is true) that this was been an ongoing thing.
    ---------------------------

    Per article: "President Obama announced at an outdoor rally here that his administration is launching" IS LAUNCHING, I guess we can conclude that you did not read IS LAUNCHING

    Romney, the man who released a politically charged statement during the development of a national security crisis, is a leader. Man you Republicans have really lost it...

    Every time a buzz word like China enters the conversation, Mitt has to defend Bain & Outsourcing. The groundwork was laid by Team Obama months ago. Mittens can't shake the image now. Karl Rove 101- Define your opponent's weakness early in the game.

    So what's Obama's solution? Raise taxes on the "rich"?? Yeah, OK... that MIGHT increase revenue by $40 billion a year against a budget deficit of $1.4 Trillion.

    Yeah, we most definitely have a spending problem.
    ------------------
    You are not listening to me. Bush was the first to not RAISE taxes to pay for the war. Bush should have increased them across the board, instead of cutting them. BTW, that $40 billion adds up to $400B over a decade, which is how we are measuring these things.

    According to FactCheck they could not find evidence that Romney while running Bain Capital shipped American jobs overseas. Typical Obama, always putting a spin on things, always tricky. The guy fears he can't win on his own job performance.

    Mittens out sourced jobs to China, and his Chinese name is "Who Flung Poo.'

    So Obama is taking action after Romney has already taken action "Just hours after the Romney campaign released a new ad promising to “crack down on cheaters like China."◄

    The word TOUT means President Obama will BRAG about what he has done with China so far.

    ►“We have brought more trade cases against Chinas in one term than the previous administration did in two,” the president told a crowd of more than 4,000. “And every case we have brought that has been decided we have won.”◄

    Maybe it is Romney trying to tag along with President Obama????? The advantage President Obama has is that he is the president and he can do what RobMe is TRYING to promise by DAY 1 – NOW!!!

    If Mitt Romney's record at Bain was so great, why doesn't he like talk about any details?
    If MItt Romney's record as Governer was so great, why doesn't he ever mention it?
    If Mitt Romney's record as the Olympics was so great, why does he always say, "I was great." and move on?

    BTW, the reason why FactCheck cannot find any records is because the Romney crowd like to erase things. The people who worked at the companies tell a very different story.

    I LOVE THE WAY RAWMONEY IS FUNCTIONING. IT WILL MAKE ABSOLUTELY SURE HE IS REJECTED ON YOUR VOTING DAY. BUT, EVEN AT HIS BEST, HE REALLY SHOULD BE. CHECK THE FACTS.

    Now you're accusing FactCheck of erasing information????? Sweetie, you have got to stop spinning and twisting in your goal to clean up after the Obama campaign throws stuff out there that just isn't true or is misleading.

    Excellent point!!!!! Obama waited until NOW to do what he should have been doing from day 1 only because Romney said he would do it.
