    Allow me to present the "conservative" rebuttal...

    This is clearly the union's fault.

    Yes, that would have been nice. They would have gotten another - what? Six-eight years of employment, and probably some R&D work around time?

    Why isn't Office Depot dead?

    your own source says they might have lost their jobs anyway... so... your point is that Romney and Bain Capital were involved in something that might have happened anyway...wow.. I'll alert the media.

    Economy of scale. See any mom and pop stationary stores around any more like they had everywhere when I was a kid?

    And by the way, Ampad is still around, too.

    The Left is running on the idea that Bain bought healthy companies, looted them, and then sold or bankrupted them.
    This is unbelievable. The left thinks that banks and other lenders are rubes waiting to be shorn and they never caught on to Bain's scheme in the 23+ years they were in business. If Bain were really doing that who would invest with them? Who would lend them money?
