    1) Vinnie Vitalis hasn't had anything to do with Bain for at least a decade.

    2) The Weather Channel has sucked on toast since NBC took it over.

    3) We can only hope that TWC under Bain returns to reporting the weather, rather than running silly-assed programing about bush pilots, and brings back the weather hotties like Hillary Andrews, Nicole Mitchell and Alexandra Steele.

    They should just continue business as usual until everyone loses their job and then they can just get a government bailout to continue business as usual again. That's the Obama way.

    Blame Romney? Maybe the weather channel could save a buck by not sending their people around the Country to stand in the rain and tell us it's raining.

    We don't need no stinking Weather Channel. We've got AlGore.

    Hmmm so instead of an entire company going out of business, laying off EVERY worker, they downsize and restructure a bit and only lay off 7%.....hmmmmm 100% layoff or 7%? Which is better?

    This is a dumb argument you are making.

    He's a dumb person who isn't intellectual enough to see the forest through the trees.
