    Obama is making a huge mistake going after Bain Capital. Venture Capitalists are one of the major drivers of job growth in this country and Obama is trying to do a Tea Party number on them.

    He knows this is utter hypocrisy on his part but he doesn't care. All this shows is he ether doesn't understand what they do, which makes him out to be a fool, or he could care less what his campaign is going to do to venture capitalism in the future.

    I think it will backfire on him big-time.

    Horseshit, most people know what operations like Bain did.

    Yes, there are some Venture Capital firms that do good things.

    Bain wasn't one of them.

    Bain Capital is Mitt Romney's Kryptonite.

    Obama has abandoned any hope of winning over reasonable people.

    Demagoguery which he hopes to use to inflame the base is all he has.

    Not really.

    Frankly, the one I see crapping his pants is Romney, because he doesn't have a better excuse for his actions than he did 18 years ago.

    The big problem Romney has is the same problem John Kerry did.

    John Kerry tried to paint himself as a guy who won some medals in Vietnam, so we could trust him on the War on Terror.

    Just ignore the fact that he spent years as a dirty hippy anti-war protestor or that he spent 20 years in the Senate undercutting the Pentagon at every oppurtunity. Nope. he's a War Hero. Look at his Purple Hearts.

    And then the Swift-Vets showed up and said, "Meh, not so much. We were seriously considering fragging him. And when he said the stuff about us he did after the war, we wished we had."


    Romney's got the same problem. He's the "Job Creator". Ignore the fact of the 1000 factories, shops and stores his company closed or the 10's of thousands of people he laid off. Ignore his one term in office where his job creation was the weakest in the nation. Nope, he's a job creator. Really.

    And then the GST and AmPad employees who lost their jobs thanks to Bain show up and say, "Nope, not so much. That guy really screwed us over to make a quick buck".

    Now, yeah, I guess you can make an "economic argument" that what Bain did was necessary.

    But that gets totally trumped by a 28 year steel worker who got screwed out of his pension and health care because Bain made a fast buck.

    It puts a human face on the question, and doesn't make Romney look very humane.

    This goes to the heart of what Obama is.

    Once it becomes known what they do Obama will look like a total fool.
