Skip to comments.(2001)BAIN CAPITAL BUYS STAKE IN HUNTSMAN, CHEMICAL COMPANY (too cozy by half??)
Posted on 01/16/2012 3:08:39 PM PST by STARWISE
The Huntsman Corporation, a leading chemical company, said yesterday that Bain Capital Inc., the buyout firm that owns Domino's Pizza and Sealy Mattress, agreed to buy a $600 million stake in the closely held business. Huntsman said it would use part of the money to buy out Imperial Chemical Industries' 30 percent share of Huntsman.

Very cozy connection .. and kept so under the radar. And, after appearing on Huck's form this past weekend, he suddenly drops out .. leaving MR in a better position? Strange personal decision .. or political bargain??
maggief's done her usual great sleuthing on the Hunstman/Bain connections .. HERE .. (thanks, maggie!) Note the comment from: Jon Huntsman Sr.:
HUNTSMAN (Sr.): "And, Mitt Romney , I love . I have known Mitt since he was a young young boy, really."
Purty dang cozy ...........
Pretty fishy indeed. Too many connections with Bain, Romney and friends.
We are going to get Mccained again with an added dose of “ish”
The fix is in....had been for quite a while. Why bother with the primaries?
Notice that there is very little coverage of Newt even on Fox. Romney is the boy for Fox and they will do anything to give Newt as little time as they can. Yes, the fix is in for their boy Romney.
Romney = toast
Romney = Croney
Romney = Boy zero
Watch out...we’re all going to get blasted for criticizing “capitalism”...even though these guys put the crony in crony capitalism.
Huntsman is a money making machine. Only a fool would turn down a chance at some of that action.
Huntsman has known Slick Willard since he was a young boy because they’re related.
(Mormons taking care of their own?)
Take note of the artical date Published: February 24, 2001
Clearly we need to pay attention to these type postings even if we may think Romney is toast
FYI and to distribute.
FYI .. that buy-in and financial connection with Huntsman was in 2001.
Such a mellow, civil post ..
And that’s another thing...
The PrattRomney Family is the name of a U.S. political family. It is linked by marriage to the Smith Family and the Matheson Family. Considered the patriarch is former Massachusetts Governor and 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who is also a cousin of Pratt descendant and 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman, Jr.
Jon Huntsman, Sr. was born in 1937 in Blackfoot, Idaho. He is the founder & Chairman of the Huntsman Corporation. He is a devout member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and serves as an Area Seventy and as a member of the Fifth Quorum of the Seventy. He has also served as stake president and mission president in the Washington, D.C. mission.
He is the father of former Utah governor Jon Huntsman, Jr. and the son-in-law of the late member of the quorum of the twelve apostles of the LDS Church, David B. Haight. Parley P. Pratt was great-great-grandfather of Jon Huntsman, Sr.
He is a great-grandson of Parley P. Pratt’s daughter Isabella Eleanor Marden Pratt (1854-1912). He supported 2008 presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who is his cousin.
Mitt is handing cash out to the homeless and now buying out candidates? My question in the end does our vote really count or does the bankster and medial control elections.
Agreed I just watched an hour or so of FNC and its all how Romney is near impossible to beat.I don't like any of this at all.
Too many coincidences and no mention of the Bain purchase that I have seen anywhere.
YEah I just noticed the date, this it is old old news....

mitt is one corrupt MF’er.
So again I ask, why bother with primaries? Why even have the debates? The whole process had been corrupted from the very beginning.
And sadly , it means we will have another four years of Obama. Maybe more if be becomes dictator for life. The Republicans have screwed up any chance for us to take back this nation.
Absolutely. But the presidential election has been fixed for a long time. I seriously wonder if the votes are counted properly. I doubt they are.
Disregard insider connections as you will ...
but most grownups have learned that personal
nastiness is not acceptable here.
The republicans are as big if not bigger problem than the democrats. All the politics is fixed. If it wasn’t why does America always go in the direction the country doesn’t want it to ? Big money controls just about everything.
I like what one presidential candidate in NH said a couple elections back the guy was a no name from NH I think. If your vote really mattered do you really think you would still have the right to vote ? He was so spot on. It is obvious that Newt would be the candidate if the world media wasn’t against him like Fox. Newt has been blacked out. I call the American media the world media because they aren’t for America and are controled by people from other countries.
“Huntsman is a money making machine. Only a fool would turn down a chance at some of that action.”
There was a time when “conservatives” would applaud both Bain and Huntman for doing very well in business.
Huntsman 12,000 employees and over $9 billion revenue.
I saw a Rasmussen poll that the attack on Romney/Bain by Gingrich did NOT obtain the desired result.
Americans apparently value the ability and willingness to downsize when necessary.
Our governments at all levels need a lot of downsizing.
What was that story the otherday about a willard company advising obummer about taking over the auto industry. And it turned out it had a similar name, but was a different company with different owners. So buying that stock in 2001 and holding it for leverage 11 years took a lot of advanced notice. If I had had the ability to do that I would have bought Microsoft on day one.
There has been one caucus and one primary in a state with very little population and Fox has already called it for Romney. If that doesn’t scream fix, what does ? NH has very little electoral power. Practically none and they are calling it. My gosh the FIX is in. Everybody needs to vote against Romney
I personally like John Huntsman Sr. I remember reading some years ago that he “lost” millions on a deal due to him making a promise to sell at one price and something happened that drove the value through the roof before any paperwork was signed. Huntsman went with the verbally agreed to deal despite the fact that he could have backed out. The other businessman who was telling the story said it was because Huntsman saw the handshake as good as any contract.
He’s also a major philanthropist and founder of the Huntsman cancer centers which are a recipient of big bucks from the Koch brothers as well.
I have no interest in voting for his son.
I do, too, as well.
Fine man. Never got a hint
of anything close from his
“FYI .. that buy-in and financial connection with Huntsman was in 2001.”
As Perry would say, Oops.
The only reason Huntsman was in the race was to confuse was to confuse the anti-mormon faction of the GOP primary vote.
Mission accomplished, check cashed.
That deal didn’t materialize, it died:
It really sickens me that I was sucked in by Fox.
As for Romney, at least I won’t waste gas going to vote.
Sure, and we went to war with Iraq be because of Dick Cheney.
You won’t believe this....shhhh!...
Yeah , it seems he was the CEO anxious still retained some Halliburton stock.
