Rick Santorumís camp hits Mitt Romney on Bain tenure
The Washington Post ^ | March 19, 2012 | By Felicia Sonmez

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s campaign is taking aim at rival Mitt Romney’s tenure at the helm of Bain Capital.....

[SNIP]

Back in January, when Perry and Gingrich were hitting the former Massachusetts governor hard on his Bain tenure, Santorum had told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, “I hate to sit here and be a defender of Mitt Romney, but to me this is federal capitalism, and I have to say that this is an attack probably not warranted.”

“Bain Capital, at least from the record I looked at, had a lot of success,” Santorum said at the time. “I mean they weren’t a company that has a long track of record basically destroying the companies and selling off the pieces. They had some situations where they had failures but every company does.”

All Mittwit and Lil Ricky are doing is helping obama save money. They are so busy attacking and mud slinging that there will be nothing left for obama to use. They are killing eachother.

Morons!

Well, Santorum is right that we don’t need someone with Romney’s crony-capitalist acumen in office.

Maybe some of us should E-mail Rush and ask him if he now has some doubts about what Santorum will be fighting for, one day to the next.

I am glad you are so sure of that. Just because someone’s sins are not ‘public’ does not mean they are not there. It is best not to be so cock sure of things that you really do not know. Just an observation.

NOT A CHANCE!

Perry and Newt had to go!

"Wall Street financier,” claimed the newly enlightened Santorum!

I keep saying don’t underestimate Newt....here’s someone who doesn’t either.....

“The thing I remember about Newt, we came to Congress together at the same time - ‘78... When Newt showed up he said,... ‘we can become the majority, we can take back the House of Representatives.’

We hadn’t had the House since the 1940’s. And initially, none of us believed him..... But he was persistent and he was tenacious.... He kept it up, kept it up, kept it up.

Finally by ‘94 he’s the newly elected speaker of the House of Representatives with a Republican majority... So I wouldn’t underestimate him.”.....’Chenney’

Yes and he should have done so long time ago. Romney would lose the elections to Obama mainly on the Bain Capital issue, that is unless the gas prices are still high by elections day and then he would have a good chance to beat Obama but in that case even a ham sandwich would have a good chance of beating Obama.

When Gingrich and Perry brought the Bain Capital issue few months ago they were quickly shutdown by many on our side and of course the establishment Republican who support Romney under the claim that attacking on Romney Bain Capital is an attack on Capitalism and that is absolute BS. Bain Capital is not the Capitalism that majority of Americans believes including a majority of conservatives and it represents the ugly side of business and most importantly it is a great political loser.

Someone wisely said: Capitalism can defeat Obama but Bain Capital cannot”.

Be careful of those open doors friend, sometimes there is a trap door on the other side. I have walked through them a few times. I remember once speaking with real passion on behalf of my beloved Pastor as his innocense, only to find that I was very wrong. I would have bet my last penny he was an honorable man. Few of us get through life without making really bad mistakes, at least once and sometimes twice. Let’s not turn Rick into a saint just yet.
