A Great Suggestion On The Speech Mitt Romney Should Give About His Time At Bain Capital

Mark Twain famously said that a lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can get its boots on.  Apart from fallen’s man’s historically demonstrated preference for exchanging truth for lies and choosing to believe lies simply because the truth often necessitates personal responsibility, there’s a fundamental reason why it is true that lies race around while the truth struggles to speak.

Take the lies about Mitt Romney: “You’re a vampire!”

It took three words to say something that is blatantly false.  How many words is it going to take for Romney to prove he isn’t a vampire???

The Democrat Party is a group of people who have a terrible agenda and who understand the power of lies.  And the “genius” of the Obama campaign is the realization that Obama can throw so much dirt at his opponents that they must spend their entire campaigns trying to correct the lies his campaign threw at them while Obama depicts himself as “hope and change.”  Obama became an Illinois State Senator by using lawyers who exploited arcane rules to suppress the votes of his opponent; he became a US Senator by unsealing and publicizing the private divorce records of his Republican challenger.  He became the Democrat candidate for president in 2008 by “playing the race card” on Bill Clinton himself and by so demonizing Hillary Clinton that she said, “So shame on you, Barack Obama.”

And now we’ve got an Obama campaign that has tried to exploit the division created by gender, by race, by religion, by sexual orientation, by income, and frankly by whatever he could think of to cynically divide and capture so that he can tear America into pieces but end up with 50 percent plus 1 of those pieces.

The Obama Team has said that Mitt Romney is a dog torturer (in spite of the fact that Obama actually ATE a dog).  The Obama Team has said that Mitt Romney is an outsourcer (when Obama is the outsourcer in chief).  The Obama Team has literally stated as a fact that Mitt Romney is a felon and a tax dodger when there is absolutely zero evidence of that and in a frankly fascist and Orwellian manner stated that the burden of proof is on the person who is demonized to prove himself innocent.  The Obama Team has  called Mitt Romney a “vampire” for his leadership of Bain Capital when Bain  successfullygrew 8 out of 10 companies it touched, when none of the examples – such as the bankruptcy of GST Steel – even occurred during Romney’s tenure at Bain, and when even many top DEMOCRATS have said that Obama’s attack against Bain and private equity are flat-out wrong if not flat-out un-American.  The truth is that GST Steel was struggling mightily the day Bain acquired it, and if anything Bain kept a company going for years that would have otherwise went belly up.  The truth is that Mitt Romney had been out of Bain Capital for two full years before the eventual collapse of GST Steel.  The truth is that the man who actually was running Bain when GST went bankrupt was actually the man who is now Barack Obama’s top bundler.  But truth be damned: so the Obama Team said that Mitt Romney was essentially a murderer exploiting the death of a union thug who once worked at GST in spite of the fact that it is a wildly false and frankly evil lie.  The Obama Team says that Mitt Romney wants to reinstitute black slavery.

The secret to Barack Obama’s political success is that he is a man who has proven that he is willing to get so dirty and throw so much hate at his opponents that they can’t get their own message out.  And he knows that even if he’s running against Hillary Clinton, the mainstream media will help him; so what do you think that same media will do if he’s running against Republicans????

As hard as it is to do, as difficult as it is to correct the record of Obama’s ocean of lies and deceit, Mitt Romney has to do just that very thing.

This is a good place to start:

Deroy Murdock: Here’s the speech Romney should give about Bain

NEW YORK — Mitt Romney cannot run from his record at Bain Capital. So, he might as well give this speech. …

Ladies and Gentlemen:

You have heard plenty about my previous life as a rich businessman. Yes, I made some $250 million in free enterprise and am proud I did — just as Berry Gordy is proud that he produced millions at Motown and Steve Jobs was proud he yielded billions at Apple. Like these respected and wealthy entrepreneurs, I added value, delivered products and services that people wanted and created thousands of careers along the way.

At Bain Capital, my team and I took small and sometimes struggling companies, injected cash and — eight times out of 10 — made them blossom. Among our triumphs:

• Bain seeded Staples with $650,000. Its 1,500 stores now employ 88,000 people who generated $25 billion in revenues last year.

• Bain helped Sports Authority boom from 10 stores to almost 700 outlets and 15,000 employees.

• Brookstone reportedly was in “dire straits” before Bain’s 1991 investment. It then opened 104 new shops, hired 741 people, and tripled net sales from $95 million to $270 million by 1999.

Atop private money, we added our management expertise to help our portfolio companies refine, manufacture and sell their market offerings. When we succeeded, we enjoyed the fruits of our labors. When we failed, we internalized our losses.

Contrast our venture capitalism with President Barack Obama’s “venture socialism,” as Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., calls it. Obama has “invested” $34.7 billion in grants, loans and loan guarantees for “green” companies. The Energy Department boasts that this money has created 60,000 jobs. That equals $578,333 per position. This is nine times the private-sector cost.

Even worse, at least 10 of these companies took your tax dollars and then went broke. Beyond Solyndra and the $528 million it flushed down a solar toilet, consider these Obama-led bankruptcies:

• Raser Technologies got a $33 million stimulus grant. Its geothermal ambitions turned to steam, and it went bankrupt in April 2011.

• Ener1 received a $118.5 million government grant to make electric-car batteries. It lost power last Jan. 26.

• Aptera scored a $150 million federal loan to make three-wheeled electric cars. It drove into a ditch last Dec. 2.

Your taxes sponsored at least six similar Obama-backed bankruptcies.

Using my Bain skills, I hope to turn around another distressed enterprise: the American economy.

The growing and uplifting economy that most of us remember can rise again. The key is to starve and sedate the federal government that expanded for decades, became fat under President George W. Bush and then, under Obama, grew morbidly obese and openly hostile to job creators.

How, specifically, can we reverse this damage? For starters:

• An optional, 15 percent flat income tax would put today’s flaccid 1.5 percent growth on steroids. So would cutting America’s uncompetitive 35 percent corporate tax rate to 15 percent. Capping dividend and capital gains taxes at 15 percent also would electrify business investment and expansion.

• A moratorium on new regulations and a critical review of Dodd-Frank, Sarbanes-Oxley and other impenetrable laws would loosen and remove the red tape strangling American companies. Repealing and replacing Obamacare would be a powerful remedy.

• Freeze federal spending for one year, and then cut it 1 percent every year thereafter. Obama’s 49.7 percent increase in U.S. national debt (from $10.63 trillion at his inaugural to $15.91 trillion today) bought America nothing. Enough!

I have a secret weapon to make this plan succeed: the American people.

We can inspire the world again with our products, inventions and ideas. First, we must pry Uncle Sam’s unaffordable, dream-crushing boots from the necks of enterprising men and women. I have maximum confidence that when Washington once again is the home of our servants and not the mansion of our masters, this republic’s emancipated citizens will reconstitute the economy, the society and the nation that we love, remember and miss so much.

My dream president is what Ronald Reagan was: Reagan was a man who had had great person success in the private sector; who had actually led by governing a state; who was an older man with more life experience; and who was a man who had a conservative vision to return America to prosperity and strength and had a plan to carry that vision out.

While I have never been thrilled as a conservative about Mitt Romney – whose life has primarily been clearly that of a moderate – it is simply a fact that Mitt Romney easily qualifies for the first three of those four criteria.  Only a Romney presidency and history can judge whether he meets the fourth and most important criteria – but what is for certain is that Barack Obama has UTTERLY FAILED to return America to prosperity and strength throughout his entire presidency.

  1. Roy Perez Says:

    You sir are a modern day Judas for your countenance of a Romney presidency. That this U.S. Presidential candidate whose record fails to satisfy even your flawed “fourth and most important criteria” (the proper criteria for any leader in civil government are based on fidelity to the Word of God) merits consideration from you and your ilk of Christian conservatives conclusively demonstrates the salt has lost its saltiness:

    “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men” (Matthew 5:13).

    No surprise, given the fact that your “dream president” is none other than the only one in U.S. history to have committed an unbiblical divorce and one who campaigned for no-fault divorce as Governor of California. God’s judgment on our nation is a direct result of lukewarm Christians like you, not Barack Obama or the Democrat Party. The latter are merely manifestations of what God promised we would reap. Our nation certainly deserves it.

    “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” (Peter 4:17)

    Repent or perish!

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    Roy Perez,

    I sure hope you’ve never voted in your entire life and never plan to vote for as long as you live.

    Given YOUR criteria – of perfect faithfulness to the Word of God – we haven’t had ANY president ever so qualify. And if you voted for Obama, then you’re not just a “Judas,” but in fact a demon-possessed Judas who voted for a baby murdering homosexual-agenda-imposing godless Marxist.

    Let me tell you the moral difference between Roy Perez and myself. Roy Perez is the type who sits back and throws stones and everybody like a Pharisee; I’m the kind who tries to make the best decisions of the often poor choices that I have. Roy Perez is the type who says, “Thou shalt not lie.” And so when the Nazis come to his door and ask him if he knows where any Jews are hiding, he says, “Yes. There are some hiding right next door.” And he shuts the door with his “clean conscience” while the Nazis go to drag away those Jews to their deaths. I’m the kind who would look at those Nazis and lie up a storm. Because unlike Roy Perez I believe that there is a hierarchy to morality, and lying – while we should avoid it – is far better than telling the truth if the truth would result in innocent people being murdered.

    Roy Perez is the kind of guy who says that Mitt Romney isn’t “perfect,” and so sits back while the most evil president in history gets elected because Roy Perez wouldn’t get off his moral damn high horse and VOTE.

    There are many times when we have to choose between a bad candidate and a far worse candidate. And the right thing to do is to get out there and choose that bad candidate so that far greater evil will not prevail.

    The moral person makes the best moral choice available to him. In a fallen world, we often have to choose between a lesser evil in order to prevent a far greater evil from happening.

    So you go ahead and don’t ever vote for anything and don’t ever participate in a damn thing and just keep sitting back on that high horse of yours throwing stones at those of us who are trying to make the world as good a place as we possibly can given the choices and the candidates we have before us. You just go on being utterly worthless and feeling sanctimonious about it. I blame YOU for Obama and all the wickedness he has imposed because you thought you were too damn “righteous” and blameless to vote for the people who would have been far superior if you’d just pulled the damn log out of your own eye long enough to contemplate reality.

    Now get lost.
