    So what if Romney/Bain did create 90,000 jobs at Staples?

    Does that mean an additional 90,000 jobs were created at OfficeMax???

    Of course not!

    A business executive usually wants to have a lot of jobs created at his own company but not so much across his entire industry. A president should want to create as many jobs across all businesses and industries as possible. There's no evidence that Romney can or wants to do that while there is ample evidence on both for Obama.

    •  How many of the jobs created at Staples, (0+ / 0-)

      no matter who "created" them were offset by jobs lost as small office supply businesses closed all aver the country?  Isn't it likely that there are now fewer jobs in the office supply industry than their were before the advent of Staples and its competitors?
