Mitt Romney- The Wrong Man For Our Time

Conservatives love to equate "freedom" with the freedom to accrue as much wealth as humanly possible....but .there are other values.  There are greater values.  Bain Capital wrung the wealth out of whatever they touched, and if that pressure killed what they touched....that destruction was never considered a negative factor in their business model.... in fact, it was a plus.   Bankruptcy excused them from liabilities.....Really, think about the vacuous morality needed for these masters of the universe to be able to sleep at night....I'll take a community organizer over a successful vulture capitalist like Mitt Romney any and every darn day of the week and for the next four years!.  Vote Obama.

Romney invested in failing companies, and yes some of them went bankrupt but without Bain Capital they all would have failed. Those companies were in deep trouble long before Bain Capital came along.

I don't know the specifics of any of these companies finances and neither do you....but his business made it a practice to load these companies up with debt and extract huge fees, no matter the eventual outcome....he's slimy. He should release his tax returns for the last ten years....Obama has most of his wealth in treasury bonds, an extremely patriotic thing to do. I'll bet you dollars for doughnuts that Romney's wealth is either in off shore accounts or special interest deferred accounts in his kids names, the young lords of the manor born.

OK, I know your mind is made up , you don't want to be confused by the facts, Everything dies in time , it's true of businesses as well as people. I personally am glad there were some rich people around to hire me and sign my paycheck, the fact is that my retirement checks come from the Koch brothers. Bet you hate them too.

And my mind is decidely not conservative so yeah....this exchange is futile....You and Twyla go in good health and may the best man win.

" people around to sign my paycheck" oh, you mean the job creators. Maple, the "rich" and when I say "rich" I mean the people who control the vast majority of the wealth in America, have figured out that they don't need labor in order to amass more and greater wealth. Hold onto that job of yours with both fists. Because if they offer you less money with the next contract, or no benefits, oh well, they have you over a barrell, better accept it. There are fifty twenty somethings drooling to take your position And I don't hate anybody. I live near Wall St and have people in my life I love very much who have played in that playground for many years to their advantage. Its just that the game is rigged and society at large needs to reign in the "masters" the one percent, with more strident financial oversight in order to balance the scale of power and influence and reorder our priorities. Maple, I am not the sort of person who needs to hate somebody in order to be motivated to care about political issues

LOL hold onto my job! I retired 11 years ago. good luck to you and just want to remind you that the rich people that controlled and administered my private retirement fund kept their word and the money has been there just like they promised unlike the democrat controlled government that spent every cent of SS tax they collected as soon as they got their greedy hands on it and now art trying to get out of honoring their comment to millions of people who paid into the system , ya good luck collecting that retirement check.

Even without the commentary, the landscape of this video is so very sad. This is becoming the picture of many YourTown, USA.<br />

Obama may not have all the answers. But I know he's not the problem.

Thanks for posting this, Annie. I hope this video goes "viral."

I first saw it yesterday and there are less than 900 views on youtube....this needs to be widespread... I have to admit, the Tea Party spread their message much better than we do

Just shared it on Facebook.

Good idea. : )

Woo Hoo! : ) Watch out for blowback. We don't want to claim to be anti capitialism....but to be pro an economically healthy America
