Now who can argue with this???

Those decisions were made by folks that were running the company differently. So I don't have the details of what decision-making went into it. Oftentimes what happens with those type of decisions is that you have software companies, you have different types of companies that have to go out and have manufacturing needs, and when they go to look for companies that have manufacturing needs that they don't have, oftentimes those are manufacturing outposts around the globe. But the most important thing that we can answer is what we're going to do to create more jobs here in the country, and that's where Governor Romney has a much superior plan than President Obama.
Perhaps dissection will clarify things.  To the sentence-diagram-o-matic!

Those decisions were made by folks that were running the company differently. So I don't have the details of what decision-making went into it.

[what happens]  -- Subject (fittingly, itself a prepositional phrase!)
     *[Oftentimes] --  Adverb, modifying "Happens"
     *[with those type] -- Prepositional phrase modifiying the subject
     *[of decisions] -- Prepositional phrase modifing "those type"
[is] -- Verb, controlling the fate of the vast direct object to follow:
     *[that] -- A mighty preposition, holding the full weight of all clauses to follow.

---------------
-------------     1st Clause:
--------------

[you] -- Second person, assumed wealthy:  subject of first clause of the mighty prepositional phrase.
[have] -- verb
[companies] -- Direct object: (what do you have?  You have Companies.)
     *[software] -- Adjective modifying "companies"  (which kind of companies do you have?)


---------------
-------------     2nd Clause:
--------------
 
       

[you] -- Second person, assumed wealthy:  subject of the second clause mighty prepositional phrase.
[have] -- verb
[companies] --   Direct object: (what do you have?  You have Companies.)
     *[types] -- Noun used as adjective to modify "companies"
     *[different]  -- Adjective modifying "types" (what other companies do you have?  You have different types!)
     *[of companies] -- Redundant prepositional phrase, also modifying "types".
     *[that] -- Preposition modifying "companies"

[have to] --  Imperative  form, acting as an adverb modifiying the mandatory action verbs below.
[go out] -- mandatory action
[and] -- conjunction joining verbs
[have] -- Second mandatory action.
[manufacturing needs] -- direct object:  (What MUST "your companies" "go out and have?  Why,  "manufacturing needs"!)


---------------

-------------     3rd Clause:

--------------

[and]           --  Conjunction, lashing the lot together:

{

    {

[when] -- Preposition, introducing a phrase which will modify the 3rd section of the main, mighty prepositional phrase.
[they] -- Third person plural, subject of this prepositional phrase.   “They” here refers to the companies which “you have”.
[go to look] -- Verb:  what your companies are doing.
[for]  -- Preposition, setting up a sub-prepositial phrase as the direct object of the preceding phrase.
     *[companies] -- Direct object:   what the companies that “you have” are looking for.
     *[that] -- Another preposition, launching a fresh sub-clause.
[have] -- Verb
[manufacturing needs] -- Sub-clause direct object
     *[that] -- Dear God it’s another prepositional phrase, this one modifying the direct object of the preceeding sub-clause
[they] -- Subject for a sub-sub-clause. “They” are still “companies” that “you have”.
[don't have]  -- Verb for the sub-sub-clause.

            }

Begin main section of the 3rd part of the mighty prepositional phrase, which is merely modified by the prepositional phrase above:

[those] --  Subject.   “Those” looks mysterious, but it’s clearly  defined in preceeding prepositional phrase.  “Those” here refers to the companies which “are being looked for” by the companies which “you have”.   Clear?

[are] -- Verb.
     *[oftentimes] -- Adverb
[ manufacturing outposts] -- Direct object of the 3rd part of the mighty prepositional phrase.  (What are those companies which “your companies” are “looking for”?  They are “manufacturing outposts”).
     *[around] -- preposition modifying “outposts”
[the globe] -- Object of the preposition.    

           }

 But the most important thing that we can answer is what we're going to do to create more jobs here in the country, and that's where Governor Romney has a much superior plan than President Obama.

=================
=
================

Or, to say it another way:  The globe is that body which those companies which have manufacturing needs which companies that you have do not do not have  are found upon.

And I feel that in truth, no one can argue otherwise.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
