been done, and is this an opportunity for us to to engage china? >> well, it's a tough opportunity. north korea i think we have to keep a couple of things in mind. we obviously need to respond in some way. they can't be allowed to get away with this. they didn't kill anybody but nuclear tests are not acceptable in the modern world. the idea that i'm trying to think there is whether any additional sanctions that we try to impose on them should be temporary on the condition that they not test again. the idea being that you would like kim jung-un this new 30-year-old leader to get a chance to establish himself. maybe he needed to allow the nuclear test to please the hard linessers. maybe he felt inexperienced to quickly take on the hard liners. i'm not necessarily saying that he's a reformer but we want to allow that possibility down the road. a punishment that is firm but temporary may be the way to break out of this logjam, and china may go along with that more readily than slapping on sanctions in duration. but anything is going to be a long shot with north korea at this point. >>

you that our uniforms for our u.s. olympics team were made in china? >> i think i really responded to that already. i don't have any further comment. >> jennifer: no comment. that's mitt romney refusing to weigh in on the controversy surrounding this year's u.s. olympic uniforms being made in china. at the time i gave mitt the benefit of the doubt sort of thinking he wanted to keep the focus of the interview solely on dashing president obama but it turns out that mitt actually did have something to hide. mitt keeping secrets, i'm shocked. what mitt doesn't want us to know is when he was in charge of the 2002 salt lake city olympics, the uniforms were also outsourced. not to china but to myanmar. you know the southeast asian country with an atrocious human rights record that until two years ago was led by a repressive huntu? when the u.s. loanchs outsources its uniforms, you know we've hit the wall. too much outsourcing. can it be stopped in that's the question. we thought we would turn to someone with a solution, a senator who's made it her mission to stop the outsourcing of u.s. jobs

made at wart, that's only made in china, then you lose the extra benefit in the economy, do you not? so this whole issue of a huge trade deficit and not having manufacturing policies that incense the production of goods here where you can have the benefit in this economy seems to me where we need to go. >> i certainly agree that actually, if you give a consumer of the united states a dollar to spend and they spent 30% of it on products made abroad, then that is going to be 30% of that dollar not spent on production and jobs in the united states. and you are absolutely right about that. the president did emphasize very much in his speech the importance of manufacturing in the united states and actually, good news, part of this report is that manufacturing has been an important source of job create in the last several months. >> right. >> the last several months last three months, employment generation has really picked up. there is -- there are some promising signs of insourcing or resourcing. american companies looking at the rise in costs of doing business abroad, the supply chain unce

(vo) the only network with real-time reaction straight from the campaigns and from viewers like you. >>now that's politically direct. (vo) brought to you by communications workers of america. bring jobs home now. >> jennifer: as we mentioned earlier, the president has a big lead among women in ohio. a full 25--point advantage but he now also leads among female voters nationwide by 18 points. that 18-point lead is unprecedented. >> no candidate has ever won either gender by such a large margin. at least in the 90 years since women got the right to vote. the margin among men which exists is 10 points. 10-point lead for romney. so why are women so decisively in the democrat's camp? well, it might surprise of some you but it's not just about reproductive rights. in fact, pew research finds the number one issue for women is -- you ready? the role of government. 4

he's bringing in foreign money after bringing in billions of money from macaw in china. >> speaking of mr. adelson i want to play a clip from newt gringrich in iowa which seems many years ago talking about governor romney and super pacs. take a listen. >> this is a man who's staff created the pac. his millionaire friends fund the pac. he pretends he has nothing to do with the pac. he's baloney. he's not telling the american people the truth. >> why aren't republicans talking about this any more? >> because they don't want to have him benefiting. you have newt gringrich who is in this weird netherworld where he has nothing to do but to go on msnbc. you have him railing against super pacs, saying that the wealthy are taking over our elections. but if you look at the super pac sort of the money comparison there, mitt romney's super pac restore our future staffed by former campaign members of his from '08 is dominateing compared to the pro obama super pac. this is karl rove cross rotes super pac raising more money than anyone on the democratic side. the republicans have the leg up. supe

china. according to this post, the company, which by the way encourages telecommuting for his employees saw these log-ins from china on their server was a breach of security. in their research they found that the guy involved in the investigation right now as "bob" way paying a chinese developer one-fifth of his six-digit salary to do his job. and they used the remote log-in to do bob's work while he was sitting in front of the computer. this is what bob did. he went on reddit. he watched videos and he went on facebook. we don't have to warn you don't try this at home. even though his company's performance review noteed bob quote, as the best developer in the company" thanks to the guy in china bob no longer workers works there. and at a time we want to celebrate the inauguration, we're going to celebrate a birthday. first lady michelle obama celebrated her birthday with a new haircut and new twitter account, it gains 40,000 new followers, probably even more even as i speak. and she shares per doctored can edither birthday withbetty white. >> dear betty i can't believe you're

different. will he bring jobs back to the country that have been lost by china trade deals and other trade deals. would he strengthen american manufacturing, stop the outsourcing? he needs to be very specific if he has any chance and right now it looks like president obama because of his support for the auto industry, the steel industry has done well, because of that, it's going to be very difficult for romney to make up that ground. >> jennifer: ohio's unemployment rate, as we all know is about a point below the national average. do you think that ohioans are feeling that giving the president some credit for that? >> i tell you, there are some marginal gains that he has because of that. but you know, just -- a word of caution and i think you've had that before you began speaking with me. these elections can change. i think that turnout is going to be a tremendous factor. president obama has an advantage. but his vote has to come out. i remember in the kerry campaign 2004, we had this enormous rally, all of this momentum. it looked like ohio was going to change the outcome of the election.

-- >> so many of the solar panels end up getting made in china. how do you bring it back here? >> we're doing the best we can, because of the dollar and the rising cost of the china, these are equalizing. if you have to compete with somebody who makes $0.50 an hour or less, that's formidable. so you want to invest in those things that will stay here. and there are things that very quick in time you want to be able to supply quick changes and that means local manufacturing. we also have efficiency, the way we design our buildings. california saved $50 billion over the last 35 years because of efficiency standards. i want to keep that up. >> and that of course creates a lot of jobs. part of the challenge of the reputation for california are the manufacturers. i would try to get people in silicon valley to take their technology to michigan. obviously part of the strategy is to change the reputation for manufacturing of california, and how can you do that? >> california, the real estate is expensive that's true. but this is a place where facebook started hewlett-packard started. s

comes up under, but, yes, i think it has a lot of possible. romney has been talking about china on the stump, and i think that opening up the option for obama to talk about china. and then there is this 47%-er question. i do not believe that romney buried that question and put it behind him with this apology to sean hannity. i have never heard mitt romney sound more sincere in saying anything in his life than how he sounded when he said that. i think obama really needs to press that. >> jennifer: i think that whole notion of what he says behind closes doors and then what he says to you, that disconnect has got to be brought forward. romney is like a trojan horse and he is bringing in these warriors who will be implementing that bush agenda. one of the things that you said in your column that i loved is that he has to remember who he is fighting for. so many times when people debate they often think it is about them, and when you recognize that you are there on behalf of the people or the cause you are fighting for, it becomes more personal. the 47%, the people who are hurting, and

jobs going to china. so it's a very very different context. the second debate will be expanded in the battleground states because it is being reinforced with advertising. the second debate got democrats back in the game. we were so demoralized and panicked, and it got back democrats very enthusiastic. and that was very very important for turnout. >> jennifer: absolutely. and we now actually have a new line from his running mate paul ryan. he told a crowd of donors yesterday, this is the quote . . . and today romney's political director was asked whether equal pay for women and contraception are pocketbook issues and rich beeson said this. >> they don't have an issue to run on, they don't have anterm so they want to talk about the small things and try to distract the american people. >> jennifer: are these small things for the voters that the republicans are trying to voo. >> it's mind boggling. it's like when todd akin tried to redefine rain if you said equal pay would be a small issue, i would say that would be nice, but we will never be given that gift. 77% on the dollar for your fa
