New Obama Ad Demonizes Romney For Jobs Destroyed During Romney’s Bain Capital Days: BUT CONSIDER WHAT OBAMA DID TO 20,000 DELPHI WORKERS

Obama, thy title is “Hypocrite-in-Chief.”

Bain under Mitt Romney invested in Staples, which had 89,000 employees as of Dec. 31, 2010.  Bain under Romney invested in Sports Authority, which had 15,000 employees as of July 2011.  Bain under Romney invested in Domino’s Pizza, which has added 7,900 jobs since 1999.  And those are just three of the many, MANY companies that Bain Capital turned around or created with its investment.

Some of the jobs that Romney has claimed credit for were created several years after he left the company. But there is no question that had he not been involved when he made the investment decisions he made, those jobs never would have existed at all.

Every single one of those well-over hundred thousand jobs that Romney created ought to be counted from the very premise of the current Obama ad: because the steel company (GST Steel) that is featured in the ad lost the jobs well AFTER Romney left Bain.  To go with the fact that it’s a laugh to blame Bain for those jobs at ALL.  Mitt Romney was in fact turning around the Olympics by the time those GST Steel jobs were lost.

So now the same people who are saying Mitt Romney shouldn’t get credit for the jobs created after he left Bain are demanding that Romney be blamed for jobs that were lost AFTER he left Bain.  Because the quintessential defining essence of a Democrat is abject personal hypocrisy and abject personal dishonesty.

Interestingly, the key decision-maker at Bain Capital during those two years after Romney left and when GST Steel was closed was none other than Jonathan Lavine. Who was Jonathan Lavine?  Lavine just happens to be a major Obama supporter and bundler who raised more than $100,000 for the Obama’s reelection campaign.  But please forget that, as it is just a fact and interferes with Obama’s demagoguery.

At Steel Dynamics Romney created 6,000 jobs. Why doesn’t that matter?  Same reason it doesn’t matter that Obama’s money bundler was actually the guy who ran Bain’s dismantling of any job losses at GST Steel.  So let’s forget Steel Dynamics and focus exclusively on Obama’s bogus attack campaign.

Meanwhile Barack Obama boasts of having created millions of jobs even as in actual fact the actual number of jobs has nosedived since his presidency as accurately measured by the labor participation rate. The numbers do not lie: you can see the participation rate nosediving year by year by year under Obama. And it’s now basically the lowest ever measured.

If the same labor participation rate that Bush left office with were applied to Obama’s economy, the unemployment rate would be 11.4%.

Since those who give up looking are not included in the official labor statistics, the more workers Obama crushes into total despair, the better for his unemployment numbers.

Under Obama, 88 million working-age Americans have simply dropped out of the damn labor force altogether. It is sickening to hear Obama boast of creating jobs when he’s annihilated MILLIONS of jobs that have now simply ceased to exist.

We can rightly demand, “Where are the jobs, Obama, you liar???”

Anyway, Obama just put out a new ad attacking Mitt Romney. You need to ignore the well-over 100,000 jobs that Romney created and focus on the people who lost their jobs as a result of Romney’s work buying bankrupt and dying companies and rebuilding them.

But Obama demonizes himself by his own demonization. Consider what Obama did – you know, the guy who credits himself with saving GM – to Delphi:

The Delphi Disaster: An Economic Horror Story Obama Won’t Tell
Posted By Michelle Malkin On September 22, 2010 @ 12:21 am In FrontPage

The White House believes it can win back depressed and economically stressed voters by turning President Obama into the storyteller-in-chief again. But victims of Obama’s Chicago politics don’t want to hear any more of his own well-worn tales of struggle and sacrifice. They’ve got their own tragedies to tell — heart-wrenching dramas of personal and financial suffering at the very hands of Obama.

Consider the real-life horror story of 20,000 white-collar workers at Delphi, a leading auto parts company spun off from GM a decade ago. As Washington rushed to nationalize the U.S. auto industry with $80 billion in taxpayer “rescue” funds and avoid contested court termination proceedings, the White House auto team schemed with Big Labor bosses to preserve UAW members’ costly pension funds by shafting their nonunion counterparts. In addition, the nonunion pensioners lost all of their health and life insurance benefits.

The abused workers — most from hard-hit northeast Ohio, Michigan and neighboring states — had devoted decades of their lives as secretaries, technicians, engineers and sales employees at Delphi/GM. Some workers have watched up to 70 percent of their pensions vanish.

John Berent of Marblehead, Ohio, lost one-third of his pension: “I worked as a salaried employee for GM (30 years) and Delphi (10 years). After 40 years of dedicated service, I was forced to retire. Then Delphi terminated my health care, life insurance, vision, dental, then terminated the pension plan. Everything I worked 40 years for was wiped out.”

Kelly Fabrizio of Franksville, Wis., saw her pension reduced by 55 percent after working 30 years at Delphi/GM: “I am truly scared for my future. Every day I wake up, shake my head and say out loud — This Is Not How It Was Supposed To Be.”

Roger Hoke of Columbus, Mich., and his wife were both longtime Delphi workers. His pension shrunk by more than 40 percent: “After 33 years with GM and another 10 with Delphi, what did I do wrong to deserve such a fate?”

Paul Dobosz of the Delphi Salaried Retiree Association recounts how they got screwed: “The Auto Task Force knew that the only thing standing in the way of GM getting what they wanted out of Delphi was the already frozen pension obligations.” They hatched a plan to dump those pensions on the federally run Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, while at the same time “devising a clever way to make the UAW pensions whole using GM and TARP money to accomplish it.

The scheme was documented in sworn depositions (that) revealed … that some groups of workers were more ‘politically sensitive’ and would be afforded special treatment (i.e. subsidy using TARP money) while others less politically worthy would be left out.”

In other words: Obama’s team of auto-crats — stocked with Big Labor-friendly appointees and self-admitted know-nothings about the car industry — decided to “cherry pick” (one Obama official’s own words) which obligations the new Government Motors company would assume and which they would abandon based on their own political whims and fealty. Due process and equal treatment of union and nonunion workers be damned. Administration officials assert that the Delphi workers’ pension fund was underfunded, but two separate actuarial analyses undercut the claim.

The Delphi workers sued the feds and will have a day in court on Sept. 24. They are not asking for a bailout. They are simply asking for fair treatment under the rule of law. Delphi supporters also point out that the very scheme used to “top up” the union workers’ pensions with taxpayer subsidies was challenged by the federal government and ruled illegal by the Supreme Court in the 1990s.

A separate investigation by TARP inspector general Neil Barofsky, announced last week, will also probe “whether political considerations played a role in favoring hourly over salaried retirees.” It shouldn’t take long to unearth the facts. Obama’s own former auto czar Steve Rattner admitted in his new memoir that “attacking the union’s sacred cow” could “jeopardize” the auto bailout deal.

While Obama conducts his worker empathy tour at staged town halls and rallies across the country, his Treasury Department continues to stonewall and refuses to answer questions about the Delphi disaster. But many workers left out in the cold know the truth: Lip-biting, yarn-spinning Obama doesn’t feel their pain. He caused it.

Twenty thousand Delphi workers lost their jobs, their pensions and their lives. And Barack Obama did it to them:

The unprecedented intrusion of the executive branch of the US government into the American auto industry when the Obama Administration orchestrated the General Motors and Chrysler bankruptcy processes is now leading to unprecedented responses. Groups that were clearly discriminated against and had their rights subordinated to politically powerful unions may actually have a winnable case against our own government as lawsuits are being brought against the US Treasury Dept. and others.

The Delphi salaried retirees who saw their pension benefits disintegrate after the GM bankruptcy are now suing the US Treasury, the Auto Task Force, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, and ex-Auto Task Force heads, Steve Rattner and Ron Bloom. The first hearing against the Treasury Dept. and others will occur on August 17th. The basis of the suit is that the Obama Administration wrongfully used taxpayer dollars to pick winners and losers in the GM bankruptcy. I had a conversation with one of the lead plaintiffs, Chuck Cunningham, who explained how there was blatant favoritism and discrimination in regards to pension benefits for groups that should have had equal standing.

Mr. Cunningham, who is a retired senior executive of Delphi, informed me that the Delphi salaried workers’ benefit fund was one of the highest funded plans that were taken over by the Pension Benefits Guarantee Company (an independent agency of the US government administered by Presidential cabinet members) during bankruptcy processes. Other Delphi groups whose pensions were taken over included the UAW, International Union of Electrical Workers and the United Steelworkers Union. Can you take a guess at which groups fared the best?

While the pension funds involved should have been treated equally, politically powerful cronies of the Obama Administration were favored through a process called “topping up.” Treasury instructed GM to use taxpayer money to top up pension payments for the UAW, GM salaried workers, the IUE and the steelworkers’ union while Delphi salaried workers lost the majority of their benefits. The favored groups lost none of their pension payments, courtesy of the US taxpayers, and retained health care benefits. The non-politically connected Delphi workers lost 70% of their pensions and all of their health care benefits.

A congressional committee has been investigating the unfair treatment that Delphi retirees received compared to other groups. According to Mr. Cunningham, while he was not at liberty to discuss congressional actions, the investigations will continue. Thus far, much evidence from closed-door meetings between Treasury and the PBGC has been withheld from Delphi plaintiffs. The plaintiffs also will be releasing a four page document described as a “timeline of deception.”

The American people should pay close attention to the Delphi case. The auto bailouts are an ugly chapter in American history and should be viewed as such. Actions taken by the Obama Administration were manipulative and displayed a clear plan to redistribute wealth from taxpayers and less favored groups, like GM bondholders and Delphi retirees, to politically powerful friends of Obama. The claim that these actions were taken with the sole intention of saving jobs is false as evidenced by the Auto Tasks Force’s demands to close thousands of dealerships during the process. The intentions were to save UAW jobs and reward the groups with the most political clout. In the words of former head of the Auto Task Force, Ron Bloom, they “did it all for the unions.”

When the Obama Administration presents its case that the auto bailouts were a huge success, they are relying on an arrogant assumption that the majority of voters will not be paying close enough attention to the discrimination and unethical conduct that transpired. I don’t expect that most Americans will be too concerned with the losses incurred by Delphi retirees or GM bondholders, but there is a much more important reason to be concerned. If the executive branch of our government can seize assets from any one group of individuals and redistribute the wealth as they deem fit, all Americans are at risk. Congress should be unrelenting in its investigations and America should pay attention. Most of all, the unprecedented actions that took place should never have a chance of being repeated.

Saving a sick company is like saving a cancer patient: you very often have to remove a lot of stuff in order to save the patient’s life. Just like with healthy cells infected with cancer cells, with sick companies, there are invariably more jobs than there is profitability – and you have to go in and cut out those jobs in order to bring the company back into balance so it can survive – so the company can survive and continue to employ the workers who can best support the company’s operations and bottom line.

It’s often labelled “creative destruction.”  It is simply a fact of reality.  The doctor removes part of the patient’s liver; but thank God because the entire patient would have died a lingering death if the doctor hadn’t taken out that part of the patient’s liver.

The essence of free markets is that some businesses succeed and others fail. Some jobs in failing businesses need to be preserved and others need to be cut. And the only people who abjectly refuse to understand this simple fact are communists.

If Obama’s ad against Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital has any validity whatsoever, Barack Obama himself is unfit for president by his own rhetoric and ought to resign in disgrace for what he did to Delphi workers.

Then there’s the whole issue of Bain Capital versus Obama Capital. That comparison doesn’t make Obama look good AT ALL.

On top of that you’ve got the further hypocrisy in the fact that top Obama officials worked for Bain Capital (OMB Director Jeffrey Zients).  One of Obama’s top bundlers worked for Bain Capital (former Bain managing director Jonathan Lavine).

Obama is a hypocrite, pure and simple. He is a pathologically dishonest man. This is no different from the Obama who demonized George Bush over Gitmo – only to keep Gitmo open throughout his own presidency and making himself a documented liar. This is no different from the Obama who demonized George Bush over the debt ceiling – only to not only increase the debt ceiling himself, but in fact to ram through the three highest increases in the entire history of the human race.

This is an abject liar who documents again and again that he is unfit to be president measured by his own lying rhetoric.

Barack Obama’s lies and hypocrisy are shameful and sickening. And if you support Obama, it is because you yourself are a dishonest person whose shriveled soul swims in a great ocean of hypocrisy.

  1. joseph harrington Says:

    You clearly don’t know anything about either business or how to research. A few minutes with Google shows that Bain put in 8 milion, issued 250k in bonds, paid itself a 36 million dividend, took out another million per year in “fees,” and left the company with 360 million in debt to be maintained with 36 million annual income. Just because Romney supposedly “left” bain, in 1999, doesn’t mean his management decisions aren’t responsible for the 2001 bankruptcy. Your conclusion shows a clear lack of ability to reason and question. A little more googling will also disclose that romney remained a general partner in Bain until he stated running for governor. I’m a libertarian, but i also oppose moronic and false reporting.

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    joseph harrington,

    Well, let’s see. You entirely refuse to consider the FACT that Mitt Romney was not only out of Bain Capital but was in FACT working full-time to make the Olympics profitable for the city hosting it basically for the VERY FIRST TIME. The business model he came up with WHEN HE WAS NOT AT BAIN continues to be followed to this day.

    Your “research” further failed to tip you off to the fact that the key decision-maker at Bain Capital during those two years after Romney left and when GST Steel was closed was none other than Jonathan Lavine. Lavine is the major Obama supporter and bundler who raised more than $100,000 for the president’s reelection campaign. So in your exquisite “research” you blame the guy who was long gone and absolve completely the guy who is one of the biggest Obama fundraisers. Which reminds me of the “blame Bush” mindset going on four years after Bush is out of office while giving no responsibility whatsoever to the fool who has been in charge for the last four years.

    Just four of Romney’s starups, such as Staples and Domino’s Pizza, easily add up to more than 120,000 jobs. And how many jobs are you attacking him for at GST Steel???

    Your “research” also somehow skips over the fact that if you are going to blame Romney for Bain, then you are a pathologically dishonest turd for refusing to give Romney credit for the hundreds of thousands of jobs that were created by the investments of Bain Capital while Romney was there. Your “research” somehow allows you to have it both ways: to give Romney ZERO credit for the hundreds of thousands of jobs he created while assigning him total blame for the very few thousand jobs that were destroyed.

    The complete truth of the matter is that private-equity firms aren’t intended to create jobs; their goal is to make money for investors. And Romney was very good at doing that very important task in the free market economic system that you despise (i.e., “libertarian” my ass!).

    You have a “research methodology” that somehow matches EXACTLY the Obama agenda and somehow selectively blames Romney for job losses while ideologically refusing to give Romney credit for huge job creation by the very same criteria you cite to blame him for his job losses. Pardon me for my naked contempt of your “analysis.”

    If in FACT you were a libertarian rather than a lying liberal who has never been honest once in his life, you would be FAR more supportive of Mitt Romney than you are of Barack Obama. Ron Paul is an example of a libertarian who clearly understands that political conservatism has FAR, FAR more in common with libertarianism than socialism EVER will.

    But let me conclude with this: I say it over and over again that the quintessential defining essence of a liberal is personal, abject hypocrisy. And the reason I say it is because people like you keep proving it to be a FACT. You come to my blog and attack me as “biased Well, for one thing I state unequivocally all over the place that I am a conservative who is writing from a conservative perspective. No matter: you attack me as “biased” – AND THEN I READ WHAT YOU WRITE AND ALL I SEE IS 100% BIAS TOWARD THE LEFT. Which is to say that the very guy who attacks me as bias has an argument that comes down to, “You’re not an ideological liberal and so therefore you are clearly biased.” You asinine HYPOCRITE!

    So go google your nutjob google-eyes somewhere else.

    “Given the precedent set by past seven Presidents and Presidential candidates of releasing multi-year tax returns why is Romney making an exception?” Because he has a lot to hide, apparently.

    He’s the only one that knows what’s in there, and apparently he’s made the judgement that he’s better off having us suspect the worst, rather than us knowing whats in there, which apparently in his mind is worse than anything we’re likely to imagine.

    Possibilities include:

    (1) He ended up with 120 million in his 401K by the trick of agreeing with Bain to grossly undervalue the market value of his stock, then a few years later have the stock get unvalued to the stratosphere.

    (2) He participated in the tax avoidance amnesty program of a few years back, avoiding major tax penalties or prosecution.

    (3) Any one or more of the other borderline legal but very bad smelling tax dodges– “in-kind” trades, “no-risk” trades, no-risk write-offs, the list is almost endless.

    And BTW he HASNT even released all of his 2010 return, he very conveniently left off the foreign investments and deposits form. Very convenient.

    And his argument that it would be “bothersome” to collect the tax data is a crock too– he supposedly collected 23 years of the stuff to show to McCain in 2008.
    Ajay Jain===================================================================================

    Republicans betrayed their own conscience when they went against established Republican principles like the MANDATE over healthcare which was a Heritage foundation issue popularized by Gingrich.

    Obama did more than his share to UNITE but the Republicans were out to oppose for opposing sake and not following any policy or principles. In the famous words of Minority Senate Leader Mitch McConnell the Republicans were out to defeat the Obama agenda even if it went against established Republican policies set by past precedent.

    Mitch McConnell was out to make sure that President Obama remains a one term President and see where it has brought the Congress and its public esteem.

    Gingrich out of his own admission was out to defeat Obama from the day he was sworn in as President.

    You can not justify the Republicans as the “loyal” opposition as is the case in most mature democracies. They have been out to get President Obama by hook or by crook. A leader can meet the opposition half way but can not fold completely to their whims and fantasies like that of the current Tea Party affiliates.

    Republicans will loose in 2012 just like they did in 2008 but with a smaller margin because of the dark money of Billionaires due to Citizens United verdict of the right wing Supreme Court.

    ======================================================================================

    ” … Mitt Romney senior adviser Ed Gillespie said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” the GOP candidate “retroactively” retired from Bain Capital after the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics began. … ”

    No body who has been drawing at LEAST $100,000.00 per year from 1999 to 2002 from Bain Capital “retroactively” retires from Bain Capital AFTER the 2002!!! Then why draw the salary of at LEAST $100,000.00 per year from 1999 to 2002 from Bain Capital if Romney retired from Bain “retroactively” !!!

    ” … Gillespie continued, “He took a leave of absence and, in fact, Candy, he ended up not going back at all and retired retroactively to February of 1999 as a result.” … ”

    However SEC documents show Mitt Romney as sole owner of all shares of Bain Capital. Romney is also shown as CEO, President and Chairman of Board of Bain Capital in 2001 and 2002 then LEGALLY speaking Mitt Romney has been responsible to all that goes on under the banner of Bain Capital. Then to run for Governor of MA Romney sought residency of MA by lieu of his Bain positions. Now either Romney was at the Olympics OR he was at BAIN.

    Only one can be true not BOTH at the same time simultaneously!!! Will the true Willard Mitt Romney stand up and accept ONE thing? Does Romney want to accept untrue SEC filings and be called a Felon or agree that he represented Bain from 1999 to 2002?

    =========================================================================================

    On Friday the 13th (7/13/2012) the very illusive Mitt Romney gave very defensive interviews to all FIVE networks on a single day at once!! Just a few days ago Mitt Romney said to FOX News that explaining means that you are WEAK. So his five interviews “explaining” his time at Bain were signs of his weakness!!

    Presidential Candidate Mr. Mitt Romney maybe feeling the heat on his role in BAIN Capital, his business experience which was supposed to be his sole criteria for creating jobs and his greatest qualification for running for the American Presidency in the current economy in 2012!

    However SEC documents show Mitt Romney as sole owner of all shares of Bain Capital. Romney is shown as CEO, President and Chairman of Board of Bain Capital in 2001 and 2002 then LEGALLY speaking Mitt Romney has been responsible to all that goes on under the banner of Bain Capital.

    Mitt Romney can not just share the good like job creation from 1999 to 2002 and leave the ugly like Bankruptcies and layoffs behind as if he had nothing to do about them from 1999 to 2002.

    If he really wanted to disassociate himself from Bain Capital he could have resigned and sold all his shares in Bain Capital in February 1999 then it would have been a different matter but to share in the glory of Bain’s job creation accept a salary of $100,000 or MORE (where are the Tax Returns?) for three years and only to refuse to take the responsibility of Bankruptcies and layoffs on his WATCH (1999-2002) is trying to have it both ways and then complaining of playing politics having been caught with his hand in the proverbial Cookie Jar that is the very essence of an ACTIVE LEGAL ROLE in Bain Capital till 2002!! Was Romney getting $100,000.00 or more to do NOTHING for BAIN Capital???

    Mitt Romney will have to face the consequences of this leaving Bain “lie” that Mitt Romney has brought on upon himself. If we keep reminding the Romney campaign of the Bain exit lie and Romney’s ill effects on workers robbing them of their hard earned salaries and life long benefits all the way to November then 7/13/2012 (FRIDAY the 13th) will go down as the turning point of the 2012 Presidential election!

  4. Michael Eden Says:

    Assertion: “Given the precedent set by past seven Presidents and Presidential candidates of releasing multi-year tax returns why is Romney making an exception?”

    Fact: Romney released two years of tax returns, thus placing him in the category of presidential candidates who have released “multi-year tax returns.” Please get your facts straight when you demagogue.

    Assertion: “Because he has a lot to hide, apparently”

    Fact: I’m sorry, I forgot the context. You must be referring to Obama’s using executive privilege to cover up Fast and Furious and his refusal to appoint an independent prosecutor to examine the damaging national security leaks that Special Operations Commander McRaven says will literally kill people and kill national security and which Democrat Dianne Feinstein says came from the White House.

    Fact: Clearly Obama should resign according to the nature of your own grounds for convicting Romney.

    It seems rather obvious to me: given the fact that Obama is lying like no snake from hell has ever lied before about Bain, about when Romney left Bain and about Romney outsourcing when even the liberal Washington Post fact check says these claims are all outright lies, why should Romney give you demon-possessed cockroaches something else to slander him about???

    Assertion: Republicans betrayed their own conscience when they went against established Republican principles like the MANDATE over healthcare which was a Heritage foundation issue popularized by Gingrich

    Fact: just because Heritage at one point suggested a mandate and just because a guy who never came close to capturing the GOP nomination suggested a mandate hardly means that “the Republicans” ever entertained it. I go back to the fact that Dianne Feinstein said the leaks that were destroying American security and getting assets killed came from the White House, that should therefore be taken as a FACT and Obama should be criminally prosecuted and forced out of office.

    Assertion: ” … Mitt Romney senior adviser Ed Gillespie said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” the GOP candidate “retroactively” retired from Bain Capital after the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics began. … ”

    Fact: Mitt Romney left Bain Capital and had nothing further to do with it in February 1999 when he assumed control of the Salt Lake City Olympics. Romney did not officially leave Bain because he did what fascists like you don’t think Americans ought to have a right to do: he kept his options open. After the Olympics, he never returned to Bain and officially left what he had only been part of for the previous three years on paper. There is nothing wrong with what he did. Romney stayed at Bain the way the Polish attacked Nazi Germany – only in the minds of rabid liars.

    FactCheck.org, which leans left, points out that there is absolutely NO evidence that Mitt Romney was still making decisions at Bain after February 1999 – exactly as Romney says.

    In the same way, “The president’s campaign fails to back up its claims that Romney ‘shipped jobs’ overseas.”

    The Washington Post says “4 Pinocchios for Obama’s newest anti-Romney ad.”

    But the problem is that facts and truth and reality don’t matter to you roaches – which is why Romney shouldn’t release more paperwork for you to lie about.

    Fact: I’m already bored with you. You are a waste of time. You’re like your pal Hitler with his Big Lie that he just kept repeating over and over and over again.

    Btw, if you want to look at a guy who has said one thing and done another, why don’t you spend a little time looking at your messiah? He promised the American people he would close Gitmo within one one of taking office. He lied. He said George Bush was “unpatriotic” for wanting a debt ceiling increase and Obama has since demanded the three largest debt increases in the history of the country. He demonized Bush for $4 trillion in debt over eight years and he has now added $6 trillion to the debt in just four years. He said he would cut the deficit in half in his first term and the deficit is now 189% higher than it was when Bush left office. He told LaRaza that usurping the constitutional authority and role of Congress to let illegal immigrants stay in the country would be undemocratic, unconstitutional and un-American – and then did exactly what he said would be undemocratic, unconstitutional and un-American. Among other things, Obama said, “I swore an oath to uphold the laws on the books.” And he has now REPEATEDLY abrogated the law, refusing to uphold DOMA even though it is THE LAW, and refusing to uphold immigration LAWS. Obama said “America is a nation of laws,” but it has not been one in his presidency.

    Your chumps lies are a hell of a lot worse than my chumps lies, you turd.

    Here’s what I’ve had to say about Obama’s “storytelling.”

    You aren’t going to hear me saying Mitt Romney is a great leader or a great man. Mitt Romney – as you yourself document – is a moderate Republican who ought to be the kind of guy that makes the left happy. But the left is demon-possessed and never WANTS to be happy. So all that happens is the GOP nominates a moderate and then warped lunatics like you try to turn a guy that has never been a true conservative in his life a rabid, frothing, rightwing conservative fanatic.

    We are at the point where we have the choice between either voting for Mitt Romey – who aint no Reagan – or voting for a Marxist who will utterly destroy America. The lastest Gallup poll shows that 60% of business owners now recognize that Obama is going to destroy their businesses and implode the American economy.

    Now get lost. I wrote an article about a very specific subject and not ONE of your compilation of leftwing talking points so much as had anything whatsoever to do with what I wrote about. I shouldn’t have even bothered to waste my time responding to somebody who clearly didn’t give me the courtesy of listening to or interacting with anything I had to say. In this comment, I interacted with you when you refused to interact with my article in any way, shape or form. Why bother arguing with someone who clearly isn’t capable of listening to any point you make???

  5. Brek Bloyd Says:

    Apparently, Ann and Mitt were some of the “cronies” that profited so handsomely from the Delphi bailout. Oops.

    http://www.thenation.com/article/170644/mitt-romneys-bailout-bonanza

  6. Michael Eden Says:

    Brek Bloyd,

    You know, I started to read that. Yes, it was from The Nation which is decidedly leftist, but that didn’t mean that it HAD to be a bunch of lies.

    But then I read the very first sentence and, yeah, bunch of lies.

    As Romney pointed out in the debate the other night, GM WENT BANKRUPT UNDER OBAMA. Both Obama AND Romney had GM going bankrupt. But your Nation piece flat-out lies by suggesting that only Romney had GM going bankrupt. GM FILED BANKRUPTCY UNDER OBAMA, WHICH IS AN INCONVENIENT FACT FOR LIBERALS.

    When an article starts out deceitfully, well, it’s time to throw that garbage away.

    That said, let’s stipulate for the sake of argument that Mitt Romney profited from OBAMA DESTROYING DELPHI AND DESTROYING THE LIVES OF 20,000 WORKERS. Who sounds like the villain; the man who invested legally, or the president of the United States who destroyed 20,000 Delphi workers with his evil union communist agenda???

    Ooops.
