Mitt Romney – THE ‘Job Creator’ – ‘NEW ROMNEY VIDEO: In 1985, He Said Bain Would “Harvest” Companies for Profits’

Please count the number of times Mitt Romney says the word ‘jobs’. For the very few that still don’t get it, Bain was and is about creating wealth for it’s investors.

If ‘wealth’ comes via hiring and adding jobs or having the company go in debt via borrowing and Bain then selling it.

Mitt Romney is describing ‘trickle down’ economics. The investors reap the rewards in 5-8 years.
From David Corn over at Mother Jones :

‘Mother Jones has obtained a video from 1985 in which Romney, describing Bain’s formation, showed how he viewed the firm’s mission. He explained that its goal was to identify potential and hidden value in companies, buy significant stakes in these businesses, and then “harvest them at a significant profit” within five to eight years’.

‘The video was included in a CD-ROM created in 1998 to mark the 25th anniversary of Bain & Company, the consulting firm that gave birth to Bain Capital. Here is the full clip, as it appeared on that CD-ROM (the editing occurred within the original)’:

TRANSCRIPT: “Bain Capital is an investment partnership which was formed to invest in startup companies and ongoing companies, then to take an active hand in managing them and hopefully, five to eight years later, to harvest them at a significant profit…”

Blog Running – ‘Mr. 47% still doesn’t get it’

From Jed Lewison over at the Daily KOS :

‘When you’re running an ad trying to convince people you didn’t mean it when you said you were writing off half the country, you’re in deep trouble’.

‘At some level, Mitt Romney clearly understands the epic disaster of his 47 percent comments—otherwise he wouldn’t be releasing painful videos like this in which he tries to convince voters that he cares about them’:

Sunday Picks – Week 4 (psssst – actual refs this week) and a Word From Your Sponsor

Sorry about the slim Pickens (ROTFLMAO!!! OK you had to be there) on posts yesterday and maybe today. My knee got to the point where I couldn’t even sit without a whole lotta hurt. So I’m back on drugs now (hence the slim Pickens (that really IS funny to me) and you really shouldn’t operate heavy machinery or try to type what you think or think what you type.


Are you ready for some football?

New Orleans winless?

Green Bay 1-2?

Arizona 3-0 (And no Kurt Warner did NOT come back and play)?

Did I wander into some alternative Universe?

Will normalicy along witht the union refs return to NFL Football?
Backwoods – 23 – 25
Kane – 21 – 27

Cleveland(0-3) at Baltimore(2-1) – Pick – Baltimore
And next week it will be Cleveland (0-4) going against another team that will beat them.

Carolina(1-2) at Atlanta(3-0) – Pick – Atlanta
The good news is that Carolina is better then Cleveland. But then so are my East Valley Knights high school football team.

New England(1-2) at Buffalo(2-1) – Pick New England
You’ve had your fun losing games. Now it’s time to get back in the game.

Minnesota(2-1) at Detroit(1-2) Pick – Minnesota
Against a better team I wouldn’t pick Minn but half of Detroit is in jail and the other half might as will be.

Tennessee(1-2) at Houston(3-0) – Pick – Houston
But the win last week with Locker was exciting. Whomp! Now back to reality.

San Diego(2-1) at Kansas City(1-2) – Pick – KC
I already hate myself and the AFC West (almost as much as the NFC East) and maybe I’m just seeing somethings that’s not really there. But KC it is.

San Francisco(2-1) at NY Jets(2-1) – Pick – SF
‘Game of the Week’
How they lost to Minnesota is beyond me (and them) but last year San Fran made 4 trips back east and won all 4. They do it again this year.

Seattle(2-1) at St. Louis(1-2) – Pick – Seattle
But this week you’ll actually have to win the game – not have it handed to you.

Miami(1-2) at Arizona(3-0) – Pick – Arizona
‘There’s something happening here………..’

Oakland(1-2) at Denver(1-2) Pick – Denver
The game film is out on how to harrass Manning but with real refs, Oakland won’t get away with a lot of it.

Cincinnati(2-1) at Jacksonville(1-2) – Pick – Cincinnati
Cinci actually has a team. Not great but good enough.

New Orleans(0-3) at Green Bay(1-2) – Pick – Green Bay
I NEVER thought I’d be typing thoses win-loss numbers fro these two teams. One really PO’D Green Bay team meets ‘which way did they go’ New Orleans. THIS should have been the Game of the Week.

Washington(1-2) at Tampa Bay(1-2) – Pick – Washington
Can Washington get back on track?
It’s the NFC East so no matter who I pick, there is a 1 in 2 chance it’s wrong. (Of course there’s always a 1 in 2 chance I’m wrong) But It’s the NFC East!

NY Giants(2-1) at Philadelphia(2-1) – Pick – NYGiants
Could be a great game. Then again……..

Monday Night Football
Chicago(2-1) at Dallas(2-1) – Pick – Chicago
Dallas has been playing over it’s head. Chicago’s ‘D’ shoves them all over the place.


While everybodys getting all excited by the polls showing President Obama WAY UP, this is happening on the ground.

The ‘new’ Republican Party. If they can’t suppress your vote, they’ll just change it.

‘Firm owned by notorious GOP operative Nathan Sproul, accused of destroying Democratic registration forms in years past, hired ‘at request of RNC’, still operating in several key swing states…’

‘The firm is not only tied to the FL GOP, but also to the Mitt Romney Campaign, which hired Sproul as a political consultant late last year, despite years of fraud allegations against his organizations in multiple states’.

‘The Republican Party of Florida’s top recipient of 2012 expenditures, a firm by the name of Strategic Allied Consulting, was just fired on Tuesday night, after more than 100 apparently fraudulent voter registration forms were discovered to have been turned in by the group to the Palm Beach County, FL Supervisor of Elections’.

‘The firm appears to be another shell company of Nathan Sproul, a longtime, notorious Republican operative, hired year after year by GOP Presidential campaigns, despite being accused of shredding Democratic voter registration forms in a number of states over several past elections’.

‘Palm Beach County Supervisor of Election Susan Bucher confirmed to The BRAD BLOG late this evening that she turned over 106 suspicious voter registration applications to the Florida State Attorney during a meeting yesterday afternoon in Palm Beach, after the “questionable” applications were submitted to her office by a worker for Strategic Allied’.

‘The forms were said to all have similar signatures, changed addresses and party affiliations, and other defects which appear to have all been done by the same hand’.

‘The case emerging in Florida tonight mirrors a similar incident reported earlier this year when more than a thousand fraudulent voter registration forms were discovered to have been turned in to the Sacramento County, CA Registrar of Voters by a group hired by that state’s Republican Party’.
