Mitt Romney and Corporations...

The Republican candidates who are not Mitt Romney have decided to start complaining about Mitt's time while at the head of Bain Capital.  This is not only a mistake, it is sad.  For those who are on the extreme right, or the non-principled middle, who claim there is no difference between the two parties...this is only working towards proving that theory.

The worst of them all...my man Newt.

It either exposes their lack of knowledge of what Bain did, or their lack of faith in the intelligence of the electorate - thinking voters will buy into it.  How can they be the party of free enterprise while jumping on the 'corporate greed' bandwagon?

Most recently, they received the support from none other than Hollywood's Tim Robbins from the Film Actors Guild.  In this video he explains their theory...






I worked for Bain Capital...after it bought the company I worked for. The company, as it was, was for sale - and few could afford to buy it. Bain could afford it, and saw the opportunity to take the company public. Some people got rich. Some people were asked to leave, and went and got new jobs. Some people were begged to stay, but left anyway (wink wink). That is business. Bain only did what the owner of my company wanted to do. Romney and company had the know-how and the resources to do what few, if anybody else, could. Not all of Bain's work was so successful, but its pretty clear he took advantage of all America, and free enterprise, has to offer:

"Bain Capital succeeded far more often than it failed in these endeavors, averaging somewhere between 50 and 80 percent annual returns from 1984 to 1999."


If Newt, Perry or Santorum want to continue, they better turn in their Conservative Credentials before the next debate...

"They are all Corporationy" "And they make money" And all this time I thought us Middle Classers were supposed to be SPENDING money...hmmm. So Obama rally just wants us to give the GOVERNMENT money not the Corporations.

We need a professional bureaucrat to run the country, not a businessman. Bureaucrats have demonstrated their ability for all to see.

From Praguer Zeitung April 28, 2010:
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man as their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince..."

There is nothing better than a bureaucrat running this country. Look where it's gotten us so far. Let's give the left all the ammo they can use.
