Math is awfully hard for liberals.

As Twitchy reported yesterday, Obama supporters are trying to coordinate a “Twitterbomb” of Sensata to force media outlets to cover the scandal that’s certain to bring down the Romney campaign once and for all. If we may set aside facts for a moment and behave like liberals, the narrative goes something like this: A U.S. company is moving to China, and big mean Mitt Romney could stop it with a single phone call if he didn’t love making money so much.

As we mentioned, though: math. Bill Clinton drove the crowd at the Democratic National Convention to ecstatic cheers by the mere mention of the word arithmetic, but we’re not sure that word means what liberals think it means.

Yes, Bain Capital owns a 51.8 percent share of stock in Sensata Technologies, a company that’s closing an Illinois plant and outsourcing production to China. Bain bought out Sensata for $3 billion — years after Romney left the company — and despite what you might have read scrawled on a cardboard sign at an Occupy protest, Mitt Romney is not Bain. He and his wife reportedly own, through a blind trust, $7.8 million worth of eight Bain funds, which combined have a controlling stake in Sensata. Bain’s controlling share, however, comprises $2.6 billion worth of Sensata’s stock. So no, Romney does not own 51 percent of Sensata — not by a long shot.

In liberal math, though, two plus two equals giraffe:

Oh, and BREAKING: Mitt Romney is the sole owner of Bain Capital.

Not only that, he’s apparently set to rake in a cool 51 percent profit from Sensata’s outsourcing.

We’re fairly certain that Twitter user wears Velcro sneakers because laces are hard.

So, just where did this idea that Romney himself holds the fate of Sensata in his hand originate? A Reuters story from July quotes a 33-year Sensata employee as saying, “If he wanted to, all he needs to do is call up the management of Bain Capital and say, ‘Look, don’t do this.'” He’d know, right?

Even David Firestone, writing in the New York Times, noted that having long since left Bain, Romney “had nothing to do with” the decision to close the plant, and that “obviously desperate” employees “are hoping that the campaign’s need to avoid bad publicity might help them.”

The Daily Kos, which is encouraging readers to promote “the Sensata situation that could potentially destroy Mitt Romney’s chances at the Presidency,” apparently took the same math course where $8 million divided by $2.6 billion equals Romney doesn’t care about the poor. “Having so much power within Bain and owning 51% of it’s [sic] shares, I’m sure Romney could pull some strings and make some calls and stop Sensata from being outsourced.” If math fails, pull strings.

Led by stalwart conservative fighters @SooperMexican and @RBpundit, Twitter users are setting the record straight.

Math is hard, but reading comprehension is an essential skill as well.
