Rush Limbaugh gonna get you. You can’t attack crony captialist, they are his BUDDDIES. They wouldn’t buy votes in Congress, they wouldn’t dare suck that “ol gumament tit”.
You are going to get called an OWS Stalinist Trotskyite Alinskyite saboteur and wrecker for posting that.
Well Mittens is a leftists, so why wouldnt they?
It’s over. Romney machine is to huge.
Would be interesting to see how this compares to other firms on the Boston financial scene.
Rush Limbaugh is soft as butter
The emporer’s clothes are off.
Long live Mark Levin.
Twice the balls in half the sized man.
Folks, the links in the first post don’t work (I was on gov’t time when I did that). However, the links in my second post (which I created while working at my private sector job) do work.
Too big to fail ???
Well, golly gee, this may be the reason for all the panic. Hope this spreads far and wide. Feeding the gravy train trough. Might as well elect a president who was head of Goldman Sachs.
I coulda smacked him upside the head for some of his comments, but on balance ... Gingrich's attacks on ROMNEY and Romney's version of "capitalism" via Bain -- which SENDT MONEY to the likes of Al Franken already this year -- should be PRAISED, not knocked -- for Pete's sake, have a little PERSPECTIVE!!! Romney, not Gingrich, is the far greater threat. Romney needs to be taken out.
Attention Rush Limbaugh (and Happy Birthday, Rush!) -- If you're too squeamish for the way Gingrich is doing battle against the enemy that is Romney, at least remember who you're AIDING when you criticize Newt, and please consider just shutting up and letting the chips fall where they may. Thomas Sowell and I think it's pretty obvious that Newt is OBVIOUSLY preferable over Romney. Rush, however, is too chicken-hearted to state the obvious.
Is Willard at Bain now? When was he there last... and what was Bain & Bain-connected’s giving records for the time Willard was there? That’s more important than stuff they did when Willard wasn’t even there.
Private Equity companies have a sweet deal in the tax code. Shummer wants to take it away, unless the Private Equity firms pay up.
Look at the donations to the Democratic groups. In 2012, $100,000 was donated to the DCCC and $200,000 to the Democratic party.
They’re all in the big Roman spa together.
It’s called ‘hedging your bets.’
So if I dig up the records for the 1990’s and they show a similar donation pattern, what will you say then?
Rush’s position on this is looking more and more moronic with each passing day.
“Theyre all in the big Roman spa together.”
Yes they are. And we are the Goths outside. For now.
The problem is the donations only seem to be going one way. Maybe they know something we don't.
I might say you’d discovered a pattern. Is Willard at Bain now? Does he have any say in what they do now? I despise Willard - but also think it’s utterly ridiculous to hold him accountable for what Bain does today if he’s not there to say yes or no to what they do.
Does Willard have any say whatsoever in their operations???
it just gets worse and worse the further you dig with Romney!
Yeah. Just like the “capitalist” Soros!!!!
But, if you're talking about the "bail out" Bain received, I'd like to know (or read) more about that.
That is such an excellent point. I hope you don't mind if I use that.
[Is Willard at Bain now?]
He STILL earns money from their ventures and always will.
What I find interesting is the contribution pattern in the last election, where Romney and Obama were both in the cycle:
Yes, they contributed more to Romney... but it isn’t an overwhelming slam-dunk for Romney.
This is why I maintain that the GOP is stupid to go so easy on financial firms. The GOP gets little to nothing from them in appreciation, and the GOP gets tarred with the reputation of being in the pockets of Wall Street.... when the DNC is really the one who is in Wall Street’s pocket(s).
The GOP should go after Wall Street with sword and fire in retribution for what they’ve done.
Yeah, they turned 180 just after Romney left and started donating mostly to Democrats of the most liberal ilk. /s

Scroll down, it should be the 2nd article.
It details multiple bail outs Bain received, as well as bail outs Romney procured when he was running the Olympics.
>>>He STILL earns money from their ventures and always will.
Does your 401k have any I vestments with Bain? Then you are equally to blame for Banis political contributions as Willard is today.
Oh, Willard’s company donates mostly to DemoRATS? Why aren’t I surprised?
"Hey Ted, who should I make this check out to?"
Then can I blame the performance of the Mn Vikings this year on Bud Grant because he used to be their coach?
I’ve already seen the data, but haven’t posted it because I don’t have the time to make the goods look pretty in HTML.
The net:net story of Bain’s political contributions is this: They started out very small... then in ‘94, the first time Romney was running for an office, the contributions markedly increased at Bain, with a big chunk headed for Romney.
After that, it was a mixed back for Congressional seats through the mid-90’s, somewhat favoring the GOP.
Then after the ‘99 to ‘00 cycle, the contribution level exploded again. In the 2000 race, they were backing Hillary and the Democrats. Since then, it has been pretty heavily stacked for the Democrats. Even in the 2008 cycle, they backed the DNC much more heavily than they backed Mitt.
Slick Mitt ran to the left of Ted Kennedy, may as well be a democrat.....
[Does your 401k have any I vestments with Bain?]
I’m not running for president.
Did Romney leave Bain Capitol back in 1985 like Bud Grant left the Vikings? Now if you had said Brad Childress or Mike Tice we may have some kind of comparison.
Rush has been a Romney supporter for a long time. He is clever about how he goes about it but It seems like people are starting to see the truth.
Rush is not a conservative, he just plays one on the radio.
>>>Im not running for president.
Irrelevant. You’d be just as evil as Willard for having investments in Bain, and just as responsible as he is for the current political contributions.
Romney is no longer with Bain but I know one of the guys running it now Steve Pagliuca is a big lib. I believe he ran in the primary for Dead Ted’s seat.
