    I'm still waiting for the better version the Democrats will do in the fall, but this is pretty nasty.

    When Mitt Romney Came to Town

    I liked the scene where they describe how they destroyed KB Toys, and they have the kid watching a report it's closing down and he looks like he's going to cry.

    I'm guessing you're not a venture capitalist.

    Well, it would of failed either way as any business that would of want to bain were about ready to. Romney saved 78 percent of the businesses that came for help!

    That is a record that OBAMA NEVER HAD. Obama fucked up for 2 1/2 years with our economy and job market. Romney helped save many, many businesses. So what if a few don't make it. That is life.

    The left would destroy capitalism anyways. Newt Gingrich is finished, :mad:

    Nope, just a workin' Joe hoping the "brain trusts" don't fuck things up more than they already do.

    Well, unless you're working for the government, your employer most likely relied on venture capital/investment bankers to build the business. Very few entrepreneurs can launch businesses solely using their own cash. You can therefore thank a VC for making your workin' Joe job possible.

    They 'destroyed' a company that was failing. The company destroyed itself. They salvaged what they could - for a profit, which was more than the owners were able to do.

    Overly emotional bullshit does not equate to facts.

    Idiot.

    Joe, your so desperate to see Mitt go down (which I don't judge you for) that your letting that desperation cloud your view of what conservatives should stand for.

    Look into the records of Bain and see for yourself they were not only a net gain for most firms they delt with but there success rate far exceeded the success rate of new business start ups. The companies that Bain took over were going to collapse regardless without the risk of being taken over by Bain.

    A simple analogy would be a person/s that buys up old delapidated property and changes it then sells it. House flipping.

    Hate the man if you will but this venture is as American as it gets. Risk/reward

    Because a bad system gives them control, I should be grateful for the bad system.

    They only have control becuase the rest of us passively allowed them to buy our government and economy. They are parasites who've convinced us they are vital organs.

    I think you are mistaking "conservative" for "PlutoCrat". It's an easy mistake to make.

    This kind of thinking destroyed the middle class and is slowly destroying the country. I'm old enough to realize that things are not as good in this country as when I was growing up, and this Corporatism (not Capitalism) is really a large part of it.

    And yes, I work for a corporation and I'm part of the hypocrisy.
