    I guess I haven't been clear enough that I'm not saying this is a major deal, per se, but that it's a major deal in terms of optics, as it relates to Romney's base.  This should be tossed in their faces not only because it violates US Flag Code, but also because it highlights the outsourcing dynamic that has been the underpinning of much of Romney's fortune and his business strategy.

    It's a very damaging visual that describes the relationship between US workers and their stateless corporate masters.  It's a highly charged image that would put Romney on the ropes with his own constituency, imo.

      the right wing comments all zero in on the fact that the plant is in China.  

      That way they don't have to mention the jobs part.  It becomes a discussion about a country's right to be proud of it's own flag.
