Mitt Romney: "The President’s a nice guy, but he’s never had a job in the private sector."
It’s impossible to question Mr. Romney’s bonafides as a businessman, but we’re rather dubious of his claim President Obama has never held a private sectory job. For example, in 2001, the future president witnessed the 9/11 attacks from his offices at the Chicago law firm Miner, Barnhill and Galland. That sounds like a private sector job to us.
Yes, that job was in the private sector, and President Obama worked there for 12 years. In addition, at least three of the jobs he held as a young man were in the private sector: his first job after obtaining his bachelor's degree was at Business International Corporation and he held summer jobs at Sidney Austin, LLP and at Hopkins & Sutter.
So, I think we have to call this latest Romney claim
another lie inaccurate.
