    "President Obama has accused Mitt Romney of raking in profits from investing in companies that ship American jobs overseas, but according to his most recent financial disclosure, he and First Lady Michelle Obama have hundreds of thousands of dollars in a mutual fund that has large holdings in corporations that outsource jobs."

    Somebody got caught with their hand in the cookie jar.
  2. So investing in a mutual fund is comparable to running a company like Bain ? OK

    It is a question of capitalism vs collectivism.

    This is a very good issue for Romney if he frames it correctly.

    Are you a capitalist who lets his capital work in is most efficient manner when its your money?
    Or are you something else?

    Obama had plenty of options other than seeking the best return for his money. The are "socially conscious" options out there.

    Its seems Obama is a capitalist with his own money and a standard of living destroying socialist with our money and when it suits his campaign.
  4. No, but people do have a choice as to where their money goes.
