And a nice to talk -- -- -- regret it.
Well I think the campaign is starting in an earnest other dueling ads out today and I wonder what you thought about the Obama campaign -- which -- zeroing in right in on governor Romney and -- when he is at Bain Capital and have -- GST steel -- Well it's certainly getting very nasty and I would say perhaps on both sides but in particular when they make an ad like that which is so unfair.
If they wanted to save companies whether it's -- somebody else in May in most cases they want to save companies and governor Romney did a fantastic job that they not only in terms of the jobs to produce but also in terms of creating and saving company she did a great job.
And it's very very unfair to pick a company and say oh gee let's stored at very unfair.
Let the innocent I'm curious about and your business guy is that there are two things one is is that.
-- GST apparently went -- but 2001 he left Bain Capital and 1999 but nonetheless.
You know some of the things at Bain Capital put in place -- I was there had an effect on -- doesn't want.
But I did a little research and I found out then 2001.
About seventeen Steele knows of wet under -- Bethlehem steel which is a second largest steel mill at the time.
Because there was dumping by foreign countries -- cheaper steel here in the United States and nobody wanted to -- domestic stay out.
Well -- does that make it unfair.
Well it certainly makes -- unfair but it -- you know it's almost like what else is no because if you look at what's going on with foreign countries and foreign companies right now.
How -- -- subsidized over our companies so it really is an unfair.
And frankly if you look at that they had I think that it was extremely into the -- and it's really -- topic of a lot of conversation right now.
It was a very very unfair edge but that was a time when -- was doing extremely.
Poorly because of the dumping I mean dumping all over the place.
And Steele was being -- many many steel companies at that time we're going out of business.
So a very significant omission they -- a -- to waive our -- campaign -- the second which I think there's no mission.
But listen to what -- -- sound bite from what Bob part of -- about 23 seconds out of the -- And tell me how poll you think this is politically.
In the five battleground states are gonna hear this part of this ad against Romney period.
I was devastated.
Makes me anger.
Those guys -- all rich they'll have more money than I'll ever spin yet they didn't have -- -- need to take care of the very people that made the money from home.
Playing capitol walked away with a lot of money that they made off of this plan we -- Mitt Romney is the job.
Destroy net and found in which there I think the term vampire was used -- how do you tell the American people who are suffering so incredibly.
-- when a company fails in another legitimate business reasons for failure in this case dumping of cheaper steel.
But nonetheless band -- -- successful very rich people and it doesn't look good to people who who don't have that kind of success of that kind of mind.
Well I agree with that it doesn't look good it's not -- it's really a misrepresentation.
But it doesn't look great if people don't know the situation.
I think a lot of people do know the situation and also in business jet hit that you have this is now in the end you have to have a lot more hits -- you have mrs.
But that was a case where Steele was doing terribly and -- I was I -- he had and I thought that it was you know very compelling from one standpoint and certainly from a class -- -- and that's what it's all about I mean let's take a couple of people that really did a good job.
And and honestly.
-- -- Who looked very sympathetic and certainly the gentleman and a couple of other people and he -- did look sympathetic.
But if they knew the facts I think they'd kill a lot differently.
-- tonight today President Obama is in New York at a private equity fund raiser yesterday commencement speech at -- out.
But one of the things that was said by one of his representatives is at that particular Romney ad was -- a slight on private equity but was to show.
Governor Romney's values.
And you -- take a stab on why that would show governor run his values.
Well I think no matter what you say he's right now -- a private equity fundraising you could give me every one of those private equity firms that I can make kids that are much better than that -- had.
And I can see I can show you things that -- done that wouldn't look so nice -- to people giving mr.
Obama or President Obama money.
So I just feel that it's you know you can always pick a person a couple of people or a company out of many.
He wasn't overly involved in that company was an historic.
There are a lot of things that were wrong with that -- a lot of things weren't there where that and I think what people see that.
The -- will not go down as being effective.
The governor -- campaign in response to President Obama put out an ad -- and which they were touting Steel Dynamics has been.
A raid success and saying essentially said in -- being hit -- messes.
But in the still dynamics add one thing that wasn't noted is the fact that Steel Dynamics got.
A number of tax breaks and a lot of government subsidies in the millions of dollars category citizen mission and the governor Romney -- is that fair.
Well I think that everybody in that case was trying to get the tax abatements and tax incentives because let's face it as you just said it ever been.
This deal was being dumped by other nations in particular certain of our favorite stations.
They would dumping steel on us like never before thought it was very very hard to -- so the government was trying to help out and sometimes that's not the worst thing in the world that it's.
That was omitted.
But big government was trying to help out in order to compete now try to play I would've done it a little bit differently I would come down on the nation is that we're doing the dumping.
And believe me they should still come down because it's still happening in this country.
-- both those ads fair both dirty is one dirty and once fair what's just dot.
Well I thought that the Obama ad was more unfair I think that.
They picked a very very small segment of something that took place with the company.
They pick somebody who was very sympathetic and they put a model I'm sure there are a lot of people -- would have said well it was really good thing and I moved on to another company and another job.
Or whatever they might have said but I thought that the Obama -- actually more unfair if you could use that chance.
Is did not adding I am looking at these ads and I as as.
Voter -- or whatever.
I would've liked to -- the information.
In the Obama ad against governor -- that number one governor Romney was out of -- two years before that happened he was up -- the Olympics.
That's have been accredited by the way Greta that some very big statement.
Just an I mean I think it's a reflection on the Canucks went ahead and so -- but how can I think that's what.
He's gotten from the company is not even there especially when the big act took place.
And he's not there and all of a sudden and not give them a lot of governor Romney I think it's very unfair.
We used to argument -- -- it Arianna you don't missions Ike battered are intended to one thing in that students seem to mislead whoever the fact finder is of the voter in this instance.
But the other is what was omitted from the -- was the -- -- a bit cheaper steel and the fact that seventeen other steel mills including Bethlehem steel went -- that year which shows the you know the the of the political pressure by have been terms of the trade between the nations.
That was putting economic pressure on his company's.
Well it's not the kind of thing that Obama would be saying but maybe you just don't do the -- you know what's that.
Egregious when you know what's that unfair.
Then maybe you just don't do -- yet you're not gonna save those two things because those two things destroyed -- But I think people are getting -- still it and I also think that's why each governor Romney is up in the polls -- if you look at the polls I've seen every poll seems to have him up.
And I think people are tired of it now they want jobs they want real thinking and they're not getting that from this administration.
Well the that's amended that we hear this jobs jobs jobs but -- not so sure that we're seeing jobs jobs jobs in this country and whether.
Well -- -- real numbers Greta because certainly you're not seeing real numbers everytime somebody gives up looking for a job they take him off the list so it looks like we're doing.
Obviously not very well but it looks like we're doing better than in fact would do it's the real number -- and I've heard numbers could be anywhere from ninety to 41%.
I heard 11% the other day.
But certainly it's not eight point 2% to.
To be fair and be credited to President Obama I'm curious I should -- should get governor Romney in his ad.
To be complete should he have included the fact that does that there were all these subsidies and tax breaks to the successful company that he is now putting and his -- to counteract.
The Obama -- I don't think so necessarily I think that's -- much lighter offense I don't think so I think that that is something that everybody has done and continues to do -- subsidies all over the place and disincentives -- all sorts of tax breaks if you wanna called import tax incentives depending on.
Where you're coming from now I don't think he had an obligation to do that because everybody was entitled to them if they could get -- Write -- back in the war on Twitter and you're going to have to share and -- and also what you're old nemesis so.
Rosie O'Donnell -- such.
What -- shares had some very unflattering and nasty things about governor Romney and I think it was inappropriate what you -- it frankly and you know I've watched her over the years I knew her a little bit and you know she.
Reminds me of -- would slightly more talent not much more talent but slightly more talent.
Let's just something wicked she says of Romney gets elected the -- on Twitter.
I don't know if I can breathe the same -- Jimenez right -- racist homophobic women in Haiti T baker masters.
To which you responded.
-- -- -- that says she's -- and that shares an average talent.
Who's out of touch with the reality but then you -- and a rosy and we resurrected Rosie into the fight back on our total loser should -- -- -- -- Well I -- entertainer -- as a loser but I you know I understand chair and chair is somewhat of a loser you -- luckily she's unhappy.
She's -- very miserable -- sound enhanced in computer enhanced music doesn't do what some -- believe me.
-- you get -- -- easily -- Twitter battles with these women is.
Know what it was general malware meant it's like yeah women I'd prefer not because -- signed a much tougher than men.
But actually I do want occasion get into battle -- which I also have my great -- so I mean I also greatly respect people.
It's fun to do this badly -- Ashton is -- -- like SF value on Twitter at says serve interesting to see you guys are hammering each other back and forth you would Sharon rose -- -- you're like you're going after each other pretty heavily.
Well I don't think they're giving me I don't know I haven't noticed that -- hitting it very hard I thought it was a very unfair shot at governor Romney and it did you go to about 12 to give it to put it down and I gave it to somebody to sit there but -- it's just not like a big deal it takes me.
You know sect considered to be.
More than seconds that wouldn't be doing it because I wouldn't waste my -- but people certainly seem to like get because my Twitter account has millions of people watching it.
It does have millions it's indeed dead does have -- -- thank you as always thank you very much --
