That is the issue. That is the story. The Republican candidate for President of the United States founded a company which is profiting by American jobs going to China, the day before the election. This company has new owners now, but its purpose is the same. It still performs the same function it did when Mitt Romney founded it.
What is that purpose?
Profit at the expense of all else.
The livelihood of the American worker most definetely included.
That is Mitt Romney, and his "professional legacy". It is by itself an utterly damning revelation for a candidate for President, or at least it damnwell should be. The question of how much Romney benefits personally from this transaction, if the answer is greater than $.01, which I'm quite certain it is, only makes the optics that much worse, and the whole debacle that much more juicy and eye-grabbing.
