Oops!… Obama Blames Romney For GST Plant Closing in 2001 in New Ad – But Mitt Left Bain in 1999

Barack Obama, the worst jobs president since the Great Depression, released a new ad today attacking Governor Mitt Romney on jobs.

Obama plays the ‘War on the Rich’ card in this new ad.
USA Today reported:

President Obama’s campaign is out with a two-minute TV ad and a six-minute web video blasting Mitt Romney’s career at Bain Capital.

The broadside will air in five key swing states: Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Iowa and Colorado.

The ad tells the Obama campaign’s version of events at GST Steel, a shuttered Kansas City plant that Bain Capital took over before it went into bankruptcy. The closing cost hundreds their jobs and jeopardized their pensions, according to Obama for America.

The story, Obama’s campaign says, exemplifies Romney’s business philosophy “and what it would mean for the American economy.” Viewers who want to know more can go to RomneyEconomics.com, a new Obama campaign web site that examines other Bain case studies…

…”In Romney’s economic philosophy, CEOs and wealthy investors prosper by any means necessary, even when it meant companies failed and workers were left behind. Romney believes in two sets of rules — one for people like him, another for everyone else.”

In the real world…
The people in the labor force is at its lowest level since 1981 under Barack Obama.

And… The Labor Force Participation Rate Lowest Since 1981.
That’s what real failure looks like.

UPDATE: Pleasance added this in the comments:

Romney left Bain 1999, GST Steel went belly up in 2001 – so how is that Romney’s fault? Or is it a case of once more facts don’t matter to dems.

Of course, the liberal media will completely ignore this fact.
It doesn’t matter. It’s Bush’s Mitt’s fault.
