    I knew it wouldn't take long for the MSM to dredge up every person who got fired by Bain..

    NBC Politics - As Romney's firm profited in SC, jobs disappeared

    This is why Romney would be poison as a candidate.... you can talk about Business smarts all day, but that's trumped by one worker standing in front of a shuttered plant.

    You mean just like the media digging up everything Newt has ever said about anything?

    I hate to break it to you, but a businessman will fire people. Most people understand that. What people don't understand is someone saying we should arrest judges who make decisions a candidate disagrees with, or women can't serve in the military because they get diseases in ditches, or people who smoke pot should be electrocuted, or the government should build giant mirrors in space to better illuminate the night highways, or we should hire 9 year-olds, and so on, and so on, and so on, and so ...

    You can tear down Newt all day, but people still won't love Romney.

    They'll just shift to someone else....

    Yes, a businessman will fire people. Everyone in the country has encountered an asshole like Romney once in their life who laid them off, usually as a result of their bad management.

    And Next November, everyone will be able to take it out on a guy just like him.

    By voting for Obama.

    But that would be good, how, exactly.

    Most people in the abstract, want government to get rid of waste and not spend as much.

    They don't want to see their neighbor who is a construction worker or a policeman or a postal carrier lose his job. That's probably what it is going to take, I think. But no one is going to take joy in it.

    And nominating a guy who laid people off and destroyed communities while doing this...

    Is not going to win any popularity contests with a populace already scared of losing their jobs, working twice as hard as they might have five years ago for less money.

    I'll take a chance with the hiring/firing guy more so than with the crazy guy.

    All the Obama campaign will have to do will be to play Newt saying things on a continuous 24/7 loop.

    "That's the guy you want with his finger on the button?"

    Yeah, right.

    He didn't just "fire" people..he fired everyone. Then offered the younger workers their jobs back with less wages and no benefits.

    That's pretty dramatic.

    Jimmy Carter tried that same shit with Ronald Reagan. And Reagan did even occassional say some goofy things.

    Didn't work then.

    I think you might get your way... Gingrich is declining... but Romney is still stuck under 25%...

    And if you can't get Repulicans excited about this guy, how are you going to get anyone else excited?

    Obama's folks... They are excited.
