    Apple is one of the companies that puts the nets up around it's factories and dorms, to keep the people who are working 36 hour shifts from jumping to their deaths.

    Annnnd you'd be wrong. The company that runs that plant is Foxconn...Apple simple uses them as a supplier. Foxconn also in these same plants makes computer parts for HP, Packard Bel,l Sony, Dell, Nokia and others.

    The nets weren't Apple's idea. It was government shrinks.

    I guess the factory he visited didn't have the safety nets around the windows to prevent worker suicides. There's a reason why things from China are so cheap. They treat their workers like crap.
    I have read 3 books about China in the past year and there is nothing incorrect about Romney's statement, the people do wait in line for factory jobs and not many of them get to make the money a factory pays.
    As for the suicide nets, suicide is way to common throughout Communist China and is the price you pay when you install leftist communist governments and take away every bit of hope for a decent life that people have. How is Obama working out for you?

And why wasn't this explained before they released the recording? Obviously, they assumed no one would notice.

    All good questions. ANd nothing but crickets from teh left.

    The only attempt at a defense was from David Corn...and his insistence that the whole tape was played got quickly shot down.

    Not entirely.

    There's actually a claim by some on the Left that because this has also been added to the Moonbat Jones article:

    Update: Due to a production error, a section of part one of the full Romney "47 percent" video was not initially uploaded properly and an intial section was omitted. This has now been remedied.
    that somehow means that the two minutes that didn't get recorded, somehow got recorded, and they have been edited back in!

    I'm serious! Someone is actually arguing that on the Left.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    They have no shame. They're nothing but a bunch of lying liars. It's like nothing I've ever seen before.

    OT: Where has DWS been? She was good for about a lie a day there for a while. I think they got a muzzle on her.
    Be Not Afraid.

    I think that they must have shackled her to a basement wall at her summer home in New Hampshire after the abject embarrassment she caused at the DNC. NOBODY could overlook that whopper, and I'm guessing that there's more than one red face about her over at team Obama.

    The Left and their pals in the media will go to any lengths to get oBAMA elected again.

    This is the worst I've ever seen things.
    May the FORCE be with you!
