    I think Romney is a fool to have believed the Chinese government when it said the guard towers and barbed wire were to keep job hunters out.

    They were obviously to keep these poor women locked in.

    Which is why it is not surprising that so many of the women, whom he said made a "pittance" working in terrible conditions, never returned when they were finally let out to visit their families for the New Year.  Instead, Romney surmises that they must have saved so much money (from their pittance) that they didn't have to work any more; they were able to retire at 23.

    This is so clownishly stupid that I'm surprised the room didn't erupt in laughter when he said it.
