Obama for America launching a new attack on Mitt Romney's jobs record.
And his time at Bain Capital.
Those guys -- all rich.
They'll have more money than I'll ever -- yet they didn't have them I 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 be Mitt Romney is -- job destroyer.
Neither -- national TV and -- making jobs.
When he has to assure you thousands of people's careers slap.
-- Well Mitt Romney as you would expect fighting back releasing this sad.
Just incredible from when I started we had close to 14100 employees now -- over 6000.
There's a lot of Friday in what we filled out here.
But ST I almost never got started when others shied away Mitt Romney's private sector leadership team stepped.
Building a dream -- over 6000 employees today.
And joining us now -- their reactions from the daily caller Michelle fields and democratic strategist China -- -- thank you so much for joining us this morning.
So Michelle I'm going to start with you and in reference to the a bomb that add the company day he's reference saying.
With Romney there -- GST.
-- And Romney in fact had left the day to day management of the day day to day operations back in 1999.
When he took over the head of the Olympic Games in Salt Lake City -- is that -- really.
Fair out out it's completely dishonest Romney have -- and this this business years prior to all of these layoffs on the other hand.
Obama has been an -- says when it's 43 million Americans have lost their job and become unemployed it's ridiculous that Obama is trying to call out Romney.
For putting supposedly putting a business and that when Obama has added over five trillion dollars to this nation's.
Debt in less than four years.
Yeah let's take a look at does numbers China as I -- -- ever TU.
Ten point six trillion when he took over office now it's fifteen point six trillion.
So this President Obama really have an argument here is this a fight that he should.
A cause he has an argument -- you fault didn't.
Millions of jobs -- lost before he took office -- how is.
It fair to say that while -- -- Romney wasn't -- Obama wasn't.
Bail out when we lost millions of jobs and went into recession and -- -- any of his policies.
You know went into action a four million more jobs got lost I'll tell you we really need to look at the intention behind.
What happens in in this job creation argument what is always president Obama's intention right.
It's we are going to find these projects on the condition that jobs are created please name one.
Project that Romney has ever what time in which he said you know what before we what comments the condition is that job -- -- know -- can name and I.
Well we -- name some jobs that governor Romney has created though in four years governor Romney traded 31000.
Jobs that was in 48 months in Massachusetts compared that to President Obama.
We have 572000.
Jobs lost in 39 months for the country Michelle.
Let -- was dealing with private equity you're taking the you're taking over these distressed businesses there obviously going to be successes and failures.
And you can look to a number six passes you can see staples that he has added tons of jobs I just think that Romney has never had any job.
-- comparing jobs lost two jobs created that's not an even measuring stick.
And also it's not an even measuring stick to take a government.
That was governor at a time when we weren't in a recession and compare him to a president who inherited.
-- match -- -- not -- I am I and that a lot is that he's had three year is.
He needs to get its act together -- his disastrous economic policies that are putting us further further into debt.
And -- it's easier said than done I think at that he's done the best all right well thank you guys so much for joining us we appreciate it here's what we do know that ads will continue.
As we oppression amber thank you that's so much.
