Vice President Joe Biden, who is gearing up to speak Wednesday evening at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., has accused President Barack Obama’s GOP challenger Mitt Romney of outsourcing American jobs during his time at the helm of Bain Capital during virtually every public appearance during the past month. But independent fact checkers have repeatedly debunked that claim.
Transcripts of public event where Biden has appeared since Aug. 13, other than fundraisers and unscheduled impromptu campaign stops, show that he consistently accused Romney during of being an outsourcer of American jobs.
In Durham, N.C. on Aug. 13, Biden said “Romney wants to slash investments in innovation and worker trainer” and “continue the policies that result in the outsourcing of American jobs he perfected at Bain Capital.”
