HOW can Obama attack Romney with a straight face knowing the history about his own donors?
Is Obama lying or spinning and distorting the truth to fit the his agenda?
OBAMA’S ‘RUTHLESS’ OUTSOURCER-SUPPORTER
July 19, 2012
President Barack Obama attended a $25,000-a-couple fundraiser in Austin on Tuesday, hosted by an executive who once boasted of his “ruthless” outsourcing tactics, according to Buzzfeed.
Obama attended a fundraiser hosted by Tom Meredith, a former Dell executive who once oversaw outsourcing at his own company — and said he would be “ruthless” about cutting costs.
In 2001, while serving as senior vice president of Dell Computer Corp, Meredith defended plans to lay off between 3,000 and 4,000 employees — largely in Texas — while sparing about 4,000 jobs in Asia Pacific. When that strategy was reported by the tech press at the time Meredith defended the move.
“We will be ruthless in how we address our cost structure,” Meredith said, a comment that drew wide attention at the time.
Obama has harshly criticized Romney for investing in companies that shipped jobs overseas, and said just Wednesday that he wants “to be a pioneer in in-sourcing.”
Those “ruthless” cuts did not curb Meredith’s lavish lifestyle. The fundraiser took place at his 12,100-square-foot penthouse apartment in the Four Seasons Hotel, according to the Boston Herald.
For some reason the Obama camp forgot to mention this…
Obama’s top bundler Jonathan Lavine was in charge of Bain during the GST layoffs.
And, Jonathan Lavine is not your average Obama Bain donor. Lavine is one of Barack Obama’s top bundlers.
While Democrats assail presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital business practices, Republicans note that President Obama has not been bashful about accepting cash from Bain executives or other high-profile figures in the corporate buyout business…
…One of Obama’s top campaign financiers – Jonathan Lavine – is also managing director at Bain, bundling between $100,000 and $200,000 in contributions for the 2012 Obama Victory Fund, according to estimates released by the Obama campaign. The president has also relied on other leading figures in the private equity sector as hosts for high-dollar fundraisers and as members of his Jobs Council.
Maybe someday the liberal media will report on this.

President Obama’s jobs panel missing in action
By JOSH GERSTEIN | 7/18/12
At this point, the hiatus — which reached the half-year mark Tuesday — might be less awkward than an official meeting, given the hornet’s nest of issues that could sting Obama and the council members if the private-sector panel gets together.
Then, there’s the fact that some members of the commission have conspicuously declined to endorse him. And that Obama has conspicuously declined to endorse some of their recommendations. And that some of what Obama won’t endorse has been warmly embraced by Republicans, including likely GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
To cap it all off, several of the companies whose CEOs serve on the panel are involved to some extent in outsourcing — a fact that could undercut the ferocious attack Obama and his campaign are mounting on Romney over his alleged ties to the practice.
One former administration official said the current political atmosphere could be prompting the CEOs and other business leaders to lie low.
“The thing is supposed to be bipartisan, so a lot of times they don’t want to get into things that could be used by either side in the election,” said the former aide, who asked not to be named. “The businesspeople, for the most part, don’t want to get into the middle of political fighting.”
