Yesterday, Michelle mentioned the foreign investments of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, frequent critic of Mitt Romney’s “offshoring and outsourcing.”

The Obama administration’s stimulus also did a bit of outsourcing before producing ads accusing Romney of doing the same thing (at least Mitt used his own money).

Today brings us this about Nancy Pelosi:

According to Pelosi’s 2011 financial disclosure statement, the Democratic House Minority Leader received between $1 million and $5 million in partnership income from “Matthews International Capital Management LLC,” a group that emphasizes that it has a “A Singular Focus on Investing in Asia.” A quick trip to the company website reveals a featured post extolling the virtues of outsourcing.

“Designed in California, Made in Manila” sounds like an excellent title for a smear ad to be run the by the Barack Obama campaign. Instead, it appears to be Nancy Pelosi’s investment strategy.
