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.

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.
