Obama Administration twice met with Bain “death squad” investor

“Mitt Romney Started Bain Capital with Money from Families Tied to Death Squads.”

So reads an inflammatory headline from the Huffington Post. The story, which is making its rounds on the left, uses innuendo — a standard feature of attacks against Romney — to suggest that the extended families of some Central American investors in Bain Capital’s launch were involved in killing civilians. It’s a hit piece.

Moreover, if there were anything to the allegations, the Obama Administration would have to explain why it met with one of the alleged hit-squad leaders twice this year.

As the story goes, when Bill Bain asked Mitt Romney to launch a private equity spin-off of his consulting firm Bain & Company in 1983, he stipulated that his protege would not be able to raise cash from current clients to shield them from the potential losses of the more risky venture. When Romney struggled to raise money, he successfully approached some “Central American oligarchs,” according to the article, to help get the business off the ground.

Romney is going to have to play extreme hardball to compete with Obama...because if Obama is playing this rough now, one can only imagine the depths he will sink to when the campaign gets really down to the finish line.

It occurs to me, that if the 0bama regime is acting in such a wild-eyed frenzy at this point, the national conventions have yet to take place, the 0bamunists are in a panic, can you imagine the lies, libel and slander that is going to be spewed by those sons o'bitches in the last 3 to 4 weeks of the fall campaign?

The possibility of a false-flag event, of a contrived so-called 'national emergency' or terrorist 'threat' is no longer in the realm of the tin foil hat crowd, the machinery of the federal government is in the hands of fascist goons and thugs that will stop at nothing to preserve and extend their illicit political power.

To paraphrase Warren Zevon, "send store up lawyers, guns and money ammo".

RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.
(Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)

After all, Francisco de Sola met with Obama’s Deputy Secretary of Commerce in January 2012. He also met with Eric Postel, the Coordinator Of The Partnership For Growth in February 2012 to discuss an a initiative that seeks to “focus international resources on reducing the primary obstacles to a country’s economic growth.”

If Francisco de Sola’s investment in Bain is worth noting, even though he was accused of his crime six years after the fact, surely the administration meeting with him after the accusations were made is remarkable.
