Skip to comments.The return of Bain Capital (Big Bird, Binders, Bayonets Under Bus)
Posted on 10/30/2012 12:02:34 PM PDT by mojito
For the final days of the 2012 campaign, the Democratic groups pummeling Mitt Romney on television have returned to the weapon they started with last spring: Bain Capital.
The Obama campaign and its super PAC allies have spent months trashing Romneys policies and personal values across the airwaves, branding him as a job-killing, abortion rights-opposing, Medicare-privatizing tycoon who disdains working-class and poor Americans.
But with a little over a week left in the race, several of the Democrats top independent spenders are leaning hard into the Bain message, eschewing a pure policy message for a gut-punch reminder that the former Massachusetts governor made his fortune through controversial deals in the private-equity industry.
The late emphasis on Bain, Democratic strategists say, reflects both the potency of Bain as an attack against Romney in general, and the pivotal significance of Midwestern states such as Ohio where the Bain message is especially resonant. Though Romney remains no better than tied with Obama in most national and swing-state polls, he has gained enough ground since the first debate on Oct. 3 that reinforcing Obamas standing in states such as Ohio and Wisconsin is of paramount importance.

It’s trite and futile.
Nobody cares anymore.
You can’t tell people that you want them to be prosperous, and at the same time tell them that being prosperous is evil.
If that’s all they’ve got, they are done, stick a fork in the turkey.............
Romney knows how to make money?
Obama, you be fired!
Under Mitt’s own direction, Bain kept its nose remarkably clean. Most of what people are complaining about or alleging concerning Bain took place after Mitt ceased directing Bain.
The Bain attack has not, is not, and will not make any difference. The rest of that stuff is just noise.
“Hey Wile E. here’s another box from ACME for you.”
Attempting to inject Bain Capital into the race at this late point is an act of desperation by Obama. Nothing is sticking to the wall. Romney might have more Teflon on him then Reagan himself.
Do you need anymore proof that the Obama campaign is FINISHED..they have NOTHING left..big bird failed, binders failed, bayonets failed..their agenda failed..now its back to Bain Capital..they have nothing left..they have thrown everything at Romney and FAILED every single time..this is pretty much like waving the white flag
Teflon, shoot. This is more like one of those green ceramic pans.
Obama has given us nothing in four years.
These leftist media whore live in an imaginary world. 'No better than tied in national polls'. Gallup has maintained a 4-7 point lead for weeks. Rasmussen has a 2-4 point lead. Both with Romney at or above 50% consistently. Other than Ohio, most key swing state polls have been clear Romney leads for almost 2 weeks. Ohio finally is starting to follow suit.
In the leftist world, no polls show Romney with leads in National or state polls. Unbelievable.
Like a drowning person grabbing for anything to stay afloat.
These guys are desperate. You can smell it on them. It smells like failure.
For a guy to be “pummeled”, the opposition has to lay to lay a glove on him.
I think Romney has not been pummeled at all. There have just been a lot of air punches by the Obamanation’s supporters.
