President Romney will Harvest YOU
As if we needed yet another self-incriminating video from Mitt Romney. This one is from 1985, when he was explaining the M.O. of Bain Capital to a group of employees:
“Bain Capital is an investment partnership which was formed to invest in startup companies and ongoing companies, then to take an active hand in managing them and hopefully, five to eight years later, to harvest them at a significant profit.”
There you have it, straight from the horse’s ass’s mouth.
That candid speech to his employees sounds a lot more genuine than his phony blubberings about “I promise to help you and your family” and “my heart aches for struggling Americans.”
Give it a rest, Asshole. Nobody believes that bullshit.
Last July, President Obama gave a similar description of Bain-style economics:
“If you're head of a large equity firm or hedge fund, your job is to make money. It's not to create jobs. It's not even to create successful businesses. It's to make sure you're maximizing returns for your investor.”
That pretty well sums it up. Do we want Gordon Gekko in the White House?
