    Stand Down- Bains Good Now:

    Papa Obama is keeping the cash he got from Bains Capital


    Though the Obama campaign has repeatedly attacked Mitt Romney for his career at Bain Capital, President Obama still accepted $7,500 in campaign contributions from three Bain executives. His campaign press secretary, Ben LaBolt told The Politicker the president has no intention of giving the money back.

    Of course he is. Obama is a corporatist too.

    From the article:

    President Obama still accepted $7,500 in campaign contributions from three Bain executives.

    I missed the part where Obama received money from Bain. I saw the part where he received a measly 75 hundred from three people who worked there. How much did he get from the company?

    The title of the thread is: Stand Down- Bains Good Now: Papa Obama is keeping the cash he got from Bains Capital

    So how much did he get from Bain itself?

    Why Hypocrite?

    He's been very consistent.

    There's no law against the type of business Bain engages in. And for people that are investing in their activity..it's pretty profitable. However, the sort of skills gleaned by what Romney did there..makes him no "job creator". In fact, quite the opposite.

    And that's what the focus is..that Romney job at Bain was to create profits..not Jobs.

    Even the leader of the conservative movement, Rush Limbaugh, has said that.

    Probably a lot less than what they cost the country.

    If I did a search on what Bain cost US taxpayers, what would pop up?
