Chicago ha escogido el lema 'Betting on America' ('Apostando por América') para la primera gira electoral del Presidente, que empieza hoy en Ohio y sigue mañana en Pennsylvania. First Read nos cuenta el por qué de ese lema:
*** What “Betting on America” means: The theme of this two-day bus tour touches on three subjects. First, it allows him to highlight the auto bailout in the Industrial Midwest (and on the heels of the big jump in sales). Second, it gives him the opportunity to highlight that Washington Post article (which the Romney camp disputes) noting that Romney’s Bain Capital invested in firms that outsourced work to China and India – a powerful charge in Ohio and Pennsylvania. And third, it’s a not-so-subtle inference to the fact that Romney doesn’t even keep much of his money in the United States. After all, this bus tour comes after Vanity Fair wrote about Romney’s complicated offshore accounts in Bermuda and the Cayman Islands, and after the AP focused on one of these Bermuda accounts.
