While President Barack Obama has repeatedly questioned the value of his opponent's experience in the private sector, a new report suggests that his campaign understands the value perfectly well. How else to explain why the Obama campaign continues to, excuse the word, "patronize" stores like Staples that owe their existence to Mitt Romney's work at Bain Capital.
Earlier today, The Examiner published an article with this lovely irony:
Team Obama turns out to be a big fan, spending $17,963.04 at Staples this year alone, according to Federal Election Commission reports. The Obama campaign just doesn't walk into stores to shop, it also participates in the Staples Advantage business-to-business market where a majority of the spending went.
If only Obama's advisers could learn the economic lessons of their own campaign.
