@Blackdemon- lame attempt to politicize job creation. Next thing you'll try to attributite this company's expansion to Romney somehow, like when he tried to take credit for saving the auto industry even tho he wrote an op-ed how they should be left to go bankrupt. Honestly, anyone who can't truly get what president Obama was trying to say about the role of government in the creation of our infrastructure and how it supports job creation and prosperity is just dim.
