I could care less, Newt is disgracing himself making what Rush Limbaugh says are leftist arguments.
No one on FR should be bothered that Romney was in business and (God Forbid!) the business actually fired people.
Further, if being in business and hiring and firing people is an issue that you don’t think can stand up to democrat attacks, give up right now.
The contrast with Obama is glaring I think this issue will just dig Obama’s political grave.
Agree completely. I'm done with Newt.
Being in business to do what? I have no idea what Bain does. Do they make a product? Provide a service?
“No one on FR should be bothered that Romney was in business...”
Yeah, but Romney WASN’T in the business of capitalist free enterprise, he was a pirate; a corporate raider specializing in the fiscal evisceration of foundering companies; fattening himself on their waning lifeblood while leaving their employees high and dry.
This is a wholly different thing than those who go into such ventures with the intent to turn a company around and restore it to profitable operations, which I fully support.
Bain may have turned some businesses around — I’m not aware of any. I am aware of their repeated involvement in abhorrent corporate necromancy, and THAT ain’t America, and it CERTAINLY ain’t Conservative values, but Romney’s all for it, and “legal” doesn’t make it just, moral, or ethical.
