Obama and top campaign bundler Jonathan Lavine from Bain Capital.

The Obama campaign blamed Governor Mitt Romney for the demise of GST Steel company in a video they released in May. The plant closed in 2001. Mitt left Bain in 1999.

For some reason the Obama camp forgot to mention this… Obama’s top bundler Jonathan Lavine was in charge of Bain during the BST layoffs. Chuck Slowe reported:

Blaming Governor Romney for any issues surrounding the failure of GST is wrong and it is a blatant lie. Mitt Romney had been long gone when the company started to fail and subsequently closed it doors. When are the President and his campaign hacks going to get the story correct? When are they going to get back to their economy and its dreadful condition? Mr. President, you can run but you cannot hide.

It turns out that Jonathan Lavine, current Obama bundler, was actually in charge, at Bain, during that period, when the layoffs occurred. Oops, that isn’t right, is it? Yes, that story is the one that needs to be reported on. Sorry Mr. President, your lies are just getting to be more than many of us are able to handle.

And, Jonathan Lavine is not your average Obama Bain donor. Lavine is one of Barack Obama’s top bundlers. ABC reported:

While Democrats assail presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital business practices, Republicans note that President Obama has not been bashful about accepting cash from Bain executives or other high-profile figures in the corporate buyout business…

…One of Obama’s top campaign financiers – Jonathan Lavine – is also managing director at Bain, bundling between $100,000 and $200,000 in contributions for the 2012 Obama Victory Fund, according to estimates released by the Obama campaign. The president has also relied on other leading figures in the private equity sector as hosts for high-dollar fundraisers and as members of his Jobs Council.

Maybe someday the liberal media will report on this.

Not sure what happened. I wasn't around to see what got deleted, but the picture I posted was one with a tree that fell on a beaver with the caption 'Epic Fail'. I'm truly sorry if that's not what came up.

My point what that it's an epic fail for the Obama campaign to push this issue since it is coming back on them.

The picture was replaced with a porn image and a note about stealing bandwidth. I’ll have nightmares for a while.

Well, it was a picture of a beaver, a very large unattractive one. I think the site you posted from was taunting you for bandwith abuse and substituted a different image in place of the one you intended. No harm done...

Now you know how I earned the nickname ‘Bandwidth Bandit’. I will be more careful in the future. Again, my apologies.

OK, good to hear. You've been around here long enough to know not to post what the rest of us saw so I assumed it was an accident!

Just needed to clear my browsing cache so I don't get a call from the HR department later on!

All around Obama is corruption and cronyism. However, Obama remains mostly unscaved...???
Devision politics really pays GOOD.
He may not get reelected.
Although,his punishment on Earth will be a lifetime of being one of the most undeserved multi millionaires, perhaps billionaire, of all time.
Like they say, life isn’t fair.

Are there any connections between Wasendorf, Tony Rezko, or the indicted Illinois Governor?

“I could really care less about Obama,” Donnie Box says of President Obama, according to In These Times. “I think Obama is a jerk, a pantywaist, a lightweight, a blowhard. He hasn’t done a goddamn thing that he said he would do. When he had a Democratic Senate and Democratic Congress, he didn’t do a damn thing. He doesn’t have the guts to say what’s on his mind.”

Box ...... won’t be voting for Obama. Wrong reasons (Obama didn't do enough), but that's just fine - one less vote.

Bain is going to be the BANE of Obama’s reelection campaign as more information about his rich, top 1% bundlers and bunglers comes to light.

“I love the sound of hypocrisy in the morning”. Obama

Never heard of the place, but then I only arrived here in ‘97. Popular small venues include The Tabernacle and Eddies Attic (to listen to the taped shows that are on DAVE FM on Sunday evenings go to the homepage and click on Audio Archives).

He just opened a place in downtown Duluth as well.
