- FactCheck.org: “The Post Story Did Not Reveal, To Use The Obama Campaign’s Term, That Romney Relocated U.S. Jobs To Foreign Countries.” (Robert Farley and Eugene Kiely, “Obama’s ‘Outsourcer’ Overreach,” FactCheck.org, 6/29/12)
The Washington Post , On Obama Claims That Governor Romney Shipped Jobs Overseas: “On Just About Every Level, This Ad Is Misleading, Unfair And Untrue…” “The Obama campaign fails to make its case.
