If he could somehow get hold of his hair, Barack Obama would surely be pulling it out right now. Obama has made it clear that the direction for his re-election campaign is to attack Mitt Romney on Bain.
Obama camp doubles down on Bain attacks
(CBS News) Attempting to drive home the message that Mitt Romney is a corporate executive concerned with the bottom line and not American jobs, the Obama campaign released a new video on Monday attacking Romney and Bain Capital for laying off workers at an Indiana office supply factory.
It's a loser. Bill Clinton just made it a huge loser.
Many democrats object to attacks on Bain and on private equity.
Host Willie Geist had asked Patrick whether Romneys past at Bain at all impacted the way he governed or drew up policy.
I think that the issue isnt about Bain, Patrick responded. Its about whether hes accomplished, in either his public or private life, the kinds of things he says he wants to accomplish for the United States. And when it comes to growing jobs in the public sphere or fixing government, the record on that is not very strong. In fact, I would say that there is one profoundly important thing that Governor Romney did when he was governor of Massachusetts, and thats to sign the health care reform bill.
But the attacks against Mitt Romney's record at Bain Capitalby both his Republican brethren and Democratsand the demonization of the private equity industry are really starting to annoy me. I won't vote for him for president based on his policies and the policies of the party he represents, but I believe Mitt Romney's business track record at Bain Capital, and the private equity industry as a whole, is deserving of a full-throated defense.
First, Bain Capital is a great firm.
Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA)
This morning on MSNBC, former venture capitalist Sen. Mark Warner D-Va. admitted that Bain Capital was "very successful" and "did what they were supposed to do."
When asked about whether attacks on private equity were fair, Warner said that he was "proud" of his previous career in the private sector but noted that public service required a "different skill set."
"Bain Capital was a very successful business. They got a good return for their investors. That is what they were supposed to do," Warner said.
Its nauseating to the American public, Booker said on NBC's "Meet the Press." Enough is enough. Stop attacking private equity."
It's hard to imagine a more instructive couple of days for those who want to know where the Democratic Party's head is at: its only high-profile African American moderate just got a brushback pitch for leaning in too close to the Independent thought zone; the Obama camp looks ominously like a cult of personality that tolerates no dissent; and the reelection campaign just doubled down on the European leftist notion that business is fair only when it operates in a sanitized, risk free manner.

Then there is the irony of Obama harping on private equity while fundraising at the home of the CEO of a private equity firm.
But nothing is as damaging as Bill Clinton.
On the one hand Clinton proclaims that he believes Obama will win "big" and then on the other hand tells Obama to stop attacking Bain:

Further, we are more likely to still have a country for Hillary to rule over under such a scenario.
Bill is thinking with the right head for a change!
Look for a coup at the Dem convention in Raleigh, North Carolina. When the Dem Fathers and Mothers realize that Obama at the head of the ticket will result in a drubbing of epic proportions, look for those Mothers and Fathers to kick Obama (and Plugs Biden) to the curb and to replace them with Hillary and Diane Feinstein.

This is a feud that goes back to the heart of the 2008 campaign for the Democrat nomination. Bill really expected and was almost depending on Herself, the Cold and Joyless, to WIN that nomination. Bill, you see, still believes he is one of the best political animals this country has seen since, maybe LBJ. And he is very nearly right.
During the 2008 campaign, George Soros started out with backing for BOTH Herself and Obama, but made an executive decision, once the field started to narrow down and those two emerged as the strongest contenders, to go with the artificial construct that was the Obama candidacy. The Clintons were already somewhat damaged goods, nobody knew what was in the pretty little package that Obama was being presented as.
Well, that wrapping has come off, and once again, Soros learned there is no clean end by which to pick up a piece of fecal matter. So there seems to be another executive decision to cut losses, and shift support AWAY from The Won, but by using Bill Clinton out there as point man, the manipulation is not nearly so obvious.
It is as if everything were working in the hard vacuum of outer space, in splendid and total isolation from what is going on down here on the surface of Planet Earth.
Obama’s only chance is to pick Hillary as VP but then Michelle would kill him.
The Clintons don’t forget anything. There’s just no way they will ever “forgive and forget” 2008. When all is said and done, the Clintons will make hash of him, and it won’t be pretty. It will be a bloodless trip to Marcy Park for Obama.
Artur Davis isn’t a Democrat any longer.
