Romney Didn't Create Jobs

I'm so tired of this "job creator" nonsense. Republicans used to call their constituents "wealth creators," which is more in line with the truth, but not politically savvy in this day. If companies didn't have to hire a single soul, they wouldn't. The purpose of a company is not to create jobs. It's to make a profit. Nothing nefarious there. That's just the way it is. The more people employed, the less profit. If a company can do more with fewer people (or with people paid on the cheap) and more technology, then that's the way they'll do it. That's what Mitt did. He grew companies through layoffs and sell offs. He's still getting rich from Bain. He refuses to tell us how rich because he won't ever disclose his tax returns. The country doesn't need a manager to create jobs. It needs a president to govern a country.
