    Romney camp claims WashPo article is unfair because Obama campaign outsources jobs.

    To Nebraska.

    When did Nebraska secede? Did it have something to do with the break up of the Big Eight conference that I missed?

      History merely repeats itself; it doesn't cure its own ills. That is the burden of the present.

        It is quite possible to outsource to Nebraska. It is not possible to offshore to Nebraska.

        They claim that the Bain controlled companies merely outsourced, but did not offshore. The WashPo has at least half a dozen counter-examples.

          moving around within the U.S. and jobs moving outside the U.S.  I would not consider moving jobs from one state to another "outsourcing" as it is understood as an issue in this campaign.  One state loses, another state gains.  Not so hot for the losing state, but there are some inescapable realities we all have to live with.  But Romney trying to make this equivalent to what Bain did is not disingenuous, it is a premeditated, calculated lie.

          Because stupid people are so sure they're smart, they often act smart, and sometimes even smart people are too stupid to recognize that the stupid people acting smart really ARE stupid.
