PATASKALA, OHIO — Mitt Romney donned safety glasses and toured a rock-crushing-equipment factory, Screen Machine Industries, here on Wednesday, saying President Obama’s economic policies have choked the manufacturer and thousands of other businesses across America.
Yet it’s been the government — and Obama’s policies in particular — that has helped propel Screen Machine’s growth at its sprawling new headquarters here, even during the recession. The company, which builds heavy-duty crushing and screening machines used in construction, mining and recycling, received four stimulus awards totaling $218,607. It is also benefiting from a 10-year deal with local and state governments to not pay taxes on its property, equipment or inventory, according to public records. And Screen Machine, which is expanding its global sales, recently won a federal contract to deliver its machines to Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan. That base doubled in size to accommodate Obama’s troop surge.
Further down, the article quoted Bill Burton of the pro-Obama Priorities USA PAC calling Romney a "compulsive flip-flopper." How could those workers stand Romney standing on a podium and lying to them? It's an insult.
Facts just get in the way of a good lie... and it really says a lot of Romney`s staff that would send him to a business that is picking up business do to the stimulus.
Ohio: Obama 45%, Romney 41%
