    Yeah, that works...if you're living on the plains and watering holes of Africa. Something tells me we need to be better.

    Does that make me a puzzie?:confused:

    It's not just academics:

    Who knew that "running a business into the ground" was profitable? Is there a way to short a private company of which I am not aware? And investors are not interested in long-term growth?

    Meanwhile (from the same article):

    I guess this was just a case of "robbing the poor" to give to their betters in government, then...

    I don't agree......I look at Bain as an entity that does "corporate recycling"......most often, if it is not for companies like Bain, many of the companies they 'retool' would cease to exist altogether.

    just because they don't make stupid decisions like investing in curt shilling, does not make them a bunch of greedy slobs.

    I'm still trying to find any specific instance where Bain did something that was bad for the US

    What is that you don't agree with above? The quote from an official in the Obama administration? That was my point.

    but what is obama's point other than to baselessly bash his opponent? it only means something with a specific example......otherwise, there is no poi nt in the first place to disagree with

    What they "do" is bad for the employee of the company they "do" it to.

    what the Mafia does to troubled buisness isn't bad for the US as a whole, its bad for the people who partner with the Mafia.

    MItts gunna get squashed

    Listening to Willard talk about education yesterday, and his views on student loans tells me all I need to know about how far from Bain this man has come, and its like zero steps.

    You can't feel very confident in this man as a candidate. I have yet to talk to a conservative (aside from those I know who are working on his campaign) who are fired up about Romney. However, If we wanted to elect someone who could gut and bankrupt the nation for personal gain...I'd see Mitt as the ideal guy, but we already had George Bush, and that turned out to be a really $#!tty way to govern.

    Those "On the fence" voters arent going to rush to the polls with excitement for Romney.

    nobody is excited about him, are you?

    I don't ever remember ever being excited about any presidential candidate.......obama does just as little to nothing as any other.

    as far as I am concerned, just like 4 years ago, I have no problem with change for the sake of change.

    obama has never shown he is capable of anything more than romney even though he has had 3.5 years to prove that he is

    you're a political homer......that is the only certain thing proven in this thread

    Romney is generating the same kind of fever:

    That bastion of conservatism the Washington Post had an interesting opinion piece today on President Obama's public equity record....Solyndra etc....pretty shabby. Comparing himself to Bain, that is one Pandora's box he (Obama) may not want to open.

    Forget Bain — Obama’s public-equity record is the real scandal - The Washington Post

    Solandra?


    http://grist.org/solar-power/2011-09-13-bush-admin-pushed-solyndra-loan-guarantee-for-two-years/

    if you only listen to FOX, you only get half the truth and all of the spin.


    "What critics fail to mention is that the Solyndra deal is more than three years old, and started under the Bush administration, which tried to conditionally approve the loan right before Obama took office. Rather than “pushing funds out the door too quickly,” the Obama administration restructured the original loan when it came into office to further protect the taxpayers’ investment."
