    I hope Romney uses this in an advertisement. :D This is just another one of those hypocritical situations the O's find themselves in.

    Michelle Obama praising a Bain company is gold. From the article:


    The Boston Globe recently reported that Bright Horizons was founded in a “Cambridge kitchen” and was financially backed by “Bain Capital, then led by Mitt Romney.”

    Bright Horizons, according to that article, is “a for-profit company whose innovations–establishing top-quality child care centers at big employers and treating employees far better than the industry norm — would earn them wide acclaim.”

    Bain Capital took over Bright Horizons in 2008, the paper reported. The company now operates 750 locations for 150,000 children.

    The CEO of Bright Horizons returned the favor to Michelle Obama in 2011. “It is an honor to stand with the first lady as advocates for children and their health now and in the future,” said Bright Horizons CEO David Lissy.

    And the two founders of Bright Horizons — Linda Mason and Roger Brown — also attended a 2011 Obama State Dinner.

    Just on Tuesday, Obama’s campaign held a conference call for reporters with former employees of Bain-owned companies to criticize the company.

    The Obama's also earn plenty of money investing in Bain companies. You would think their hypocrisy would shame them somewhat.

    Wow, I expected this to be before, but no, the dates don't lie... Her association with Bain was after she became proud of her Country.

    You bet they do.

    They are also quick to throw them under the bus when it suites.

    Exactly Vel- no shame,
    politics is kind of shameless but more so for one party kind of a double standard. We have no press this is corrupting morals in my opinion
