Committed: Romney Sacrificed $2 Billion in His Run for the Presidency

    Nathan Vardi’s Forbes magazine article, “Mitt Romney: The Most Expensive Political Career in American History” makes the observation that, “lots of people pay a high price for getting into politics, but no one has likely given up more, at least financially, than Mitt Romney.” Forbes has estimated that Romney would be worth approximately $2 billion had he remained at Bain Capital instead of running for | Read More »

    Your Move, Mitt: No Obama Apology For Bain Comments.

    The Romney campaign demanded an apology from Obama concerning Stephanie Cutter’s comments that Romney was a felon “He’s not going to get an apology,” Cutter said Sunday of CBS’ “Face the Nation. So that’s the way this campaign’s gonna be: another 4 months of lies, deception, and misinformation Chicago-style (not that we expected anything else for Obama and Co.). And I won’t even hit on | Read More »

    Clinton Disses Obama Campaign

    Add yet another Democrat joining the Bain Mutiny group.  Bill Clinton disses Obama’s strategy all together and states: There is no question that in terms of getting up and going to the office and basically performing the essential functions of the office, a man who has been governor and had a sterling business career crosses the qualification threshold… When you try, like anything else you | Read More »

    David Brooks Sees the Light?

    Has David Brooks finally been able to break the hypnotism of the crease?  On Jim Lehrer’s NewsHour on PBS, a show that seems to have a fondness for inviting him on when they need a “conservative” to slap around, he said: “I sort of think this debate hurts both candidates,” Brooks said Friday on PBS’s “NewsHour.” “I think Bain is not popular. It is not | Read More »

    Capitalism – Texas Style

    We’ve been treated to a great deal of angst in the past week as some on our side have questioned Romney’s work at Bain capital. It’s been described as an assault on capitalism, one of the foundations of conservatism. If you listen to the arguments made from those complaining, you’d believe that leveraged buyouts and layoffs are the cornerstone of capitalism and to question them is to | Read More »

    Inoculating Romney

    A recent satirical post wrote the GOP should vet Mitt Romney’s past dealings with Bain. Romney’s opponents shouldn’t do this because they hate capitalism (does anyone really believe that they do?). No, his foes should do it because if there are skeletons in that closet, we need to know about it now, before Mitt’s sealed the nomination. Was the Occupy Wall Street movement just a | Read More »

    How Romney and Bain Capital Remind Me of An Old Rugby Story

    I can think of one excellent side-effect of the argument over Mitt Romney‘s work at Bain Capital. It reminds me of the fun and foolish days when I could still set foot on a rugby pitch and expect to walk off in one piece. A broken, old prop’s reminiscence begins below. It was a wet, cold, drizzly Saturday. However, the day was awesome. It was | Read More »

    Do Tea Party Conservatives Hate Capitalism?

    Over at National Review, Jay Nordlinger is fuming and indignant. By William F. Buckley standards, his article Conservatives vs. Capitalism nearly requires a set of html rant tags. And on Jay’s behalf, I don’t necessarily believe anger is automatically bad. Nordlinger considers himself to be a Conservative. He believes strongly in free enterprise. He sees his favored candidate, Mitt Romney, being lambasted for aggressively participating | Read More »

    Let Obama Vet Mitt on Bain!

    [The following is satire, written in the ironic tone. All candidates should be vetted on all issues before the general election. We apologize for any confusion. --The Mgmt] Why is everyone criticizing Mitt Romney all of a sudden? Even worse: Mitt Romney is being attacked for being a capitalist. And worst of all: by fellow Republicans! Leave Mitt alone! Clearly, this issue should not be | Read More »
