Romney Campaign Claims He Created about 23 Jobs

In its effort to sell Mitt Romney as someone who understands the economy and knows how to create jobs, one of his campaign’s early talking points was that he helped create 100,000 jobs during his tenure at Bain Capital. The campaign repeated the claim throughout the primary, despite a glaring lack of evidence to support the claims. The campaign now admits the real number of jobs created is more like 23 maybe 26 in total.

This is nothing less than an admission from the Romney campaign that their 100,000 jobs claim was entirely bogus, and acceptance that Romney created vastly fewer jobs than he claimed he had just a few months ago. It’s a welcome return to reality, but calls into question any piece of evidence the campaign puts forward.

Here is the List of the jobs Mitt Romney has “created”.

Wolfeboro, NH Compound
In 1997, the Romneys plunked down $3 million for a summer home situated on 11 acres of lakefront in New Hampshire. The 3-story, 6-bedroom contemporary sits along Lake Winnipesaukee in Wolfeboro, “the oldest summer resort in America.” With a 5,400-square-foot main house and additional guest house, the estate is worth an estimated $10 million.
This home requires.

3 Part time security guards
1 Full time maid
1 Part time cook

Park City, UT Ski Home
In 1999, the Romneys picked up another vacation home. This time, the family decided on a mountain ski home in Park City, Utah. More chalet than cabin, Romney’s 7-bedroom, 9.5-bath home sits at the end of a cul-de-sac on nearly 11 acres. A premier destination for snow sport enthusiasts, Park City real estate doesn’t come cheap.

La Jolla, CA Beachfront Property
When Romney purchased his $12 million La Jolla home in 2008, he told the media that he wanted to be somewhere where he could “hear the waves.” Apparently a home on the high-priced California coast, (median La Jolla home values hit $1,067,600), was the right location.
It may be the ideal location, but it isn’t quite the ideal home, at least not yet. In August 2011, Romney filed an application with the city to bulldoze the single-story beachfront home and replace it with a larger, two-story home.
