So I guess it was relevant for the President to bring up Romney's involvement in Bain. And it was anyway, since Romney is claiming that this experience proves he's a job creator. And in fact, we now know that he was a job creator.
In India and China.
Mitt Romney’s financial company, Bain Capital, invested in a series of firms that specialized in relocating jobs done by American workers to new facilities in low-wage countries like China and India.
During the nearly 15 years that Romney was actively involved in running Bain, a private equity firm that he founded, it owned companies that were pioneers in the practice of shipping work from the United States to overseas call centers and factories making computer components, according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
