Posted on 07/02/2012 10:59:19 AM PDT by van_erwin
David Corn has a report out this morning that pushes the continuing attacks on Mitt Romney's tenure at Bain Capital forward not just because of the business it involves disposing of aborted fetuses but because it extends the length of time he worked at Bain. According to Securities and Exchange Commission documents, Romney was involved in Bain's investment in a company called Stericycle in late 1999. What did Stericycle do? Well, it was a fast-growing, profitable medical waste company. But it also had some problems, such as getting fined for keeping body parts and dead animals in unmarked containers or exposing workers to tuberculosis. And then there were the fetuses. Romney now describes himself as "adamantly pro-life" now but embraced pro-choice positions on abortion in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Back when Bain was involved with Stericycle, anti-abortion activists have waged a campaign against the company.
But that revelation may not be the most significant part of Corn's report (conservatives who aren't wild about Romney's conservative credentials aren't making much noise now that Romney is the Republican nominee). The most damaging part may be the dates.

Dollars you spend at companies and the taxes you pay (if you pay them) are providing abortions each day.
I declare you guilty of murder because you spend money and pay taxes.
David Corn is a flaming Leftist who couldn’t care less about aborted fetuses. This is just another hit piece on Romney, whose spotty record on abortion is one of the reasons that conservatives wanted Santorum.
Corn simply wants conservatives to stay home on election day, which is not going to happen. Unfortunately, this is another “lesser of two evils” election with which conservatives are sadly familiar.
This is a stretch by anybody and David Corn is one of the nastiest liberals, which is saying a lot.
One wonders why you would choose to post a story like this here?
remember - these stories all have but one goal - to keep Obama in office.
I am not sure about this one, but there already have been some that are pure fabrication.
read them carefully and check them out every way possible
Well, did Romney and his policies stand over the delivery table and force nurses to kill babies who survive abortion? Obama did, and that’s worse.
You don’t say much. Are you still “kind of” wishing for the Bush tax cuts to expire?
BAIN and Romney were “fined for keeping body parts
and dead animals in unmarked containers
or exposing workers to tuberculosis.”
If true, you claim that is not relevant?
How about if they made $$$$$ selling the land
for the 911 Victory Mosque?
Time for the Republicans to get their stuff in one pile and get a candidate, and it ain't this guy.
The liberals at the Atlantic LOVE abortion.
Obamacare kills. We will ALL be paying for infanticide.
This is just media smoke and mirrors to suppress Republican voter turnout.
We teamed with Stalin to defeat Hitler. Didn’t mean we had to like or support Stalin’s agenda.
The Democrats are stuck with their mass murderer. Republicans can step back from the precipice ~ there’s still time.
We don’t need your candidate.
Actually, that’s not what this article says.
It says Stericycle was fined. It doesn’t say it was fined during the period Romney and Bain had in interest in the firm. And it specifically does not say Romney and Bain were fined.
Did Bain run this company, or merely have an investment in it? How large was the investment? Did they have control? How long did their involvement last?
All rather relevant questions in assigning degree of responsibility for whatever happened.
I would also like to point out that while I personally would not be involved in assisting abortionists by disposing of the bodies, doing so it at least an order of magnitude less immoral than actually killing living babies.
Who’s yours and how many states will he win?
Welcome to Obama-Biden through Jan 2017.
The country WILL not survive.
Maybe you’d rather welcome back Jimmy Carter. He did wonders for this nation and the Middle East too.
Look, us Conservatives lost the primaries.
At this point, he could eat baby on live TV and I’d still vote for him just to get rid of that commie impostor sitting in the White House!
The key is to focus on the Senate and House races. If we win those, we can pimp-slap Mittler R’omni (or, God forbid, Obama) back into submission.
The crime may be that they disposed of aborted fetuses rather than letting the gods of science have them to muck about with.
Well the good news is that we are all abortionists now.
Thank God McCain / Palin didnt’ win!!
Stalin wasn't on the side of the Nazis, and he knew they were his mortal enemies. I don't believe Romney feels that way about Obama and the liberals-communists-socialists-moocherscum.
He has no soul.
At this point I don’t care if Romney eats live kittens tail first. The only thing that matters is the defeat of Obama.
Everthing else is secondary.
He was way over the line of anything that's acceptable.
There go the Catholic voters. I think that drops his possible vote total down into the low 30 millions ~ maybe less.
“At this point, he could eat baby on live TV and Id still vote for him just to get rid of that commie impostor sitting in the White House!”
Then, what’s the point of life?
BINGO!!! IF TRUE.
The media is now backtracking on the Romney outsourcing "scandal."
The left has got to be more desperate this election than they've ever been. Obomacare is a HUGE loser for them. I believe they're scrambling, and they'll be using every dirty, nasty trick they can find in their Satanic bibles this time.
I’m sick of RINOs hijacking the party by telling us we have to fall in line or we’re giving aid and comfort to the enemy. Sorry, I don’t know who David Corn is, but I don’t really care. Stericycle is in the business of murder, and Romney is as pro-death as Obama.
There is a pro-choice candidate running, Andre Barnett. http://www.ontheissues.org/Andre_Barnett.htm
“The lesser of two evils” is still evil.
You Obama supporters will stop at nothing to get your man elected!
Yeah because obama is so much better.
You think? Just how do you propose to make that happen?
He ain’t my boy. I didn’t vote for him in my state’s primary.
Name names or stop “talkin’ tough”.
Who is your candidate? Which state ballots is he on? How many will he win?
Breitbart has a message for you:
Take it or leave it. I’m not here to convince anyone of how they should vote, and no one here is going to change my vote. I respect your right to vote how you wish; please respect mine.
For our presumptive nominee to catch a break around here is beyond possibility. But what do I expect from Obama supporters?
Their silence is deafening. Make no mistake, their man is Obama.
Or is your goal to keep me home and “boycotting” the election just like a Moby “dick”?
Punk the prez? - Moby’s anti-Bush tricks
New York Daily News ^ | 2/09/04 | Rush & Molloy
One of Sen. John Kerry’s celebrity supporters is ready to pull out all the stops to get him elected. Republicans are shrieking over a suggestion by rocker Moby that Democrats spread gossip about President Bush on the Internet. “No one’s talking about how to keep the other side home on Election Day,” Moby tells us. “It’s a lot easier than you think and it doesn’t cost that much. This election can be won by 200,000 votes.”
Moby suggests that it’s possible to seed doubt among Bush’s far-right supporters on the Web.
“You target his natural constituencies,” says the Grammy-nominated techno-wizard. “For example, you can go on all the pro-life chat rooms and say you’re an outraged right-wing voter and that you know that George Bush drove an ex-girlfriend to an abortion clinic and paid for her to get an abortion.
“Then you go to an anti-immigration Web site chat room and ask, ‘What’s all this about George Bush proposing amnesty for illegal aliens?’”
Moby didn’t claim that he believed the abortion story.
Last month, Bush did propose reforms to immigration policy. But he insisted, “I oppose amnesty, placing undocumented workers on the automatic path to citizenship [because it] perpetuates illegal immigration.”
Republican National Committee spokeswoman Christine Iverson likened Moby’s proposal to “dirty campaign tactics we’re already seeing from John Kerry.”
“His campaign was willing to use these kinds of voter suppression tactics against members of his own party in Iowa and New Hampshire,” Iverson says. “John Kerry is a hypocrite. He pledged to run a clean campaign. Then he uses the lowest form of gutter politics to impugn his opponents, Democratic and Republican. It’s unfortunate but this is probably just the beginning of the kind of tactics we’re going to be seeing from John Kerry in the months to come.”
Kerry spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter said, “I doubt that Moby was suggesting anybody suppress the vote. We did not use any dirty tactics against any candidate...”
Any article that starts out by saying effectively that “David Corn says...” can not possibly pass the ‘truthiness’ test, let alone the ‘stink test’.
Get rid of the disease, and the symptoms will disappear right along with it.
Coming from someone from the Class of 98, you should be ashamed of yourself for supporting the Re-election of Barrack Husein Obama. And Donna too. Whatever compensation you get can’t be worth it.
Yep. And it can be opposed.
For now, Romney holds no office.
The man in the oval office today is doing more evil things as POTUS than Mitt Romney ever has.
Gun running. Killing mexicans. Aiding Islamic jihad in the Middle East. Aiding global Communism and turning his back on US Allies.
Barack Obama has got to go.
If there is a name to replace Mitt Romney on the ballot, it had better be trumpeted now and loudly.
Saying "somebody else" is just farting around.
No it's not. It's in the medical and biohazard waste handling and disposal business.
Under Obama we are the ones calling for the pickup.
I WILL TAKE THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS THAT DOES NOT MAKE ME FUND ABORTION.
Virgil Goode, the good candidate. Now you have no excuse.
They have no other viable GOP candidate, that's why I conclude they are supporting Obama. It really isn't complicated.
If you can't defend your boy to me how you going to defend him to others?
Constitution Party was on 37 ballots in 2008. Think they will win in 2012?
They have a choice. Join those who murder the babies, or join those who bury the babies.
BTW, nothing says Romney was involved in this. He didn't spend his entire life at Bain Capital, you know. The left is already admitting.......well......they lied about Romney's outsourcing.
I'm sure the lies are going to keep coming. They're going to get so bad, people will think the left fell through a worm hole and landed in another dimension.
It's not like Corn just came up with this out of thin air ~ he's simply an opportunist with no morals or values.
‘scuse the language but ‘farting around’ is what a lot of people here do best.
Bain or Romney? Since Romney left Bain in 1999 and the sale was in 2009 did Romney profit?
“There is a pro-choice candidate running, Andre Barnett.”
Ahh.. so you purpose here is to carry water for pro-abort Andre. No sale.
