Here is an actual fundraising email (below) from the Romney campaign (to a CPA member) focusing on the China cheats narrative. A good sign.
Obama could easily have avoided this criticism. But he (and Geithner and Summers) screwed up by doing nothing.
Barack Obama promised he would take China “to the mat” over its unfair trade practices. But every time he’s had a chance to stop them from cheating, he’s refused.
His latest excuse? He doesn’t want to “embarrass” China.
As president, I will protect American workers — instead of China’s pride.
From day one, I will crack down on nations like China when they cheat. I will not allow any nation to consistently steal our intellectual property and manipulate their currency in a way that kills American jobs.
We cannot afford to waste any more time — let alone four more years — or lose any more jobs while twenty-three million Americans are struggling for work, and nearly one in six Americans is living in poverty.
This election is a choice between two very different visions for our nation’s future — and that choice was on full display during the first debate.
Barack Obama doesn’t have a record to run on or a plan for the future — nor does he have the will to stand up to cheaters like China.
Where he has failed to lead, I will act.
Allowing America to be treated like a doormat while we’ve lost over half a million manufacturing jobs — that’s embarrassing. We can’t allow that to continue.
Let’s get back to the business of protecting America’s best interests.
