The problem isn’t with private equity or, er, “raping” companies, he says, it’s simply a matter of challenging Romney’s claim of being a job creator. Which, of course, is a lie: Go back and watch Obama’s brutal ad about GST Steel, replete with a worker comparing Romney and Bain to a “vampire.” It’s an attack on Romney’s character, not his job-creating prowess, which is in keeping with the whole tenor of the battle over Bain. Ostensibly it’s an argument over employment numbers but in reality each side wants something deeper out of it. Romney wants voters to come away thinking he’s a business genius even though some of his projects resulted in layoffs; Obama wants voters to come away thinking he’s Gordon Gekko redux, a cold-blooded moneybags who’d sell out the working man for a dollar.

Axeldork’s first fauxcreation, Cadillac Deval is about to be punished for failing Trial Balloon Marxist School!

Failed trial balloons who don’t follow through with the full on propaganda don’t get a place in the second Marxist administration.

Some idiot Liberal will hire him, never fear... a bundle donor perhaps... naaahhh!
