I see people like you go for drugs, cashing fraudulent checks, larceny & domestic abuse. I would hope by now, you are over that stuff, but I'm certain you have some of that in your history. After all, you are a Democrat.

A liberal website criticized Romney for saying in 1985 he wanted to "harvest companies".
A harvest strategy is the way an entrepreneur or investor intends to extract his money from a business after it has become successful.
Success breeds success.
Hard to believe this concept eludes so many liberals.
But milking people out of their hard-earned money to buy into global warming and becoming filthy rich by scamming them is okey-dokey.
But it's okay for the filthy rich to scam the public with fake climate denier pseudo-science so they can continue to make obscene profits off other peoples' pain and suffering from climate catastrophes? It's okay for wealthy private entrepreneurs to 'harvest ' companies , but not the U S government ? Lincoln picked winners and losers in getting the Trans-Continental railroad built during the Civil War; Eisenhower picked winners and losers in getting the U S interstate highway system built during the Cold War, but a Black American President Obama can not do the same as a White-American President George W Bush in picking winners and losers in getting a U S renewable energy national infrastructure built to replace the aging , obsolescent fossil fuel energy regime?

Oh, do you mean Bain Capital? Whose consulting expertise became widely copied within the private equity industry? Who a University of Chicago School of Business economist said "came up with a model that was very successful and very innovative and that now everybody uses"?
Are you talking about Romney at Bain Capital who former President Clinton said had a "sterling record"?
Or are you talking about someone else?
Sheeeat on a splinter, Batty, but you can't even use who and whom correctly, let alone know what Bain Capital's success depended on...hint: go back and watch the first "Wall Street."

Taxation without representation, online edition

The Senate passed the Marketplace Fairness Act by a 69-27 vote on Monday, bringing us one step closer to state taxes on Internet commerce. The House has its own version of the bill, so there’s a pretty good chance it will reach the President’s desk, and of course you had Barack Obama at “new tax.” It will be a wonder if he can keep from trembling visibly with excitement when he signs the law. Republicans, on the other hand, might have a spot of trouble explaining their enthusiasm for a new tax to constituents.

You're right, sonicfilter. The 'family values','pro-business' politics was flushed down the toilet with Sanford's win over Elizabeth Colbert-Busch, a honest , respectable, successful local businesswoman from Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.

Dave would never understand that these companies would have closed anyway, and instead at least were given a chance.
Dave prefers the Hostess-type of bankruptcy, where a bullying union drives a company down the drain.
Would they??? They could have survived or been bought out by a company that would not have bankrupted them.

Hostess already got at least two concessions from the Bakers union while handing out 6 figure salaries & bonuses to its executives.

Yes, Jimmy , Sanford wins and it's Springtime for adulterers and criminals. Mark Sanford was an adulterer, a criminal(broke into his ex-wife's home), committed malfeasance while Governor( ran off to screw his Argentina skank without informing his staff or the state legislature that he left the country then lied about it), and Sanford supported Mitt Romney who made tons of money off of his Bain Capital company SteriCycle (medical waste business) after Romneycare that offers free abortions on demand passed in Massachusetts. Yeah, right, Mark Sanford is as much a 'family values' guy as Newt 'the snake' Gingrich! LOL

Another lazy mofo who'd rather spew the FOX line. Strickland was the DS special agent who secured Stevens and Smith in the safe room prior to the firebombing__he was one of several DS agents at the consulate that evening including two DS agents who had traveled from Tripoli with Stevens.

When someone says there were not American security on site__they are sadly misinformed or lying out their azz. Were there enough? How many would have been enough?

Will add that none of these so called whistleblowers were in Benghazi that evening.

Not at all. They can opt out & ay a fine to contribute to the system he relies on for back up.

I have an idea, let those people, over 21, opt out of having health insurance only if they have a tattoo saying Payment Required. If they collapse with a heat attack, the ambulance & emergency room does not treat them without payment in advance. When they run out of cash & their credit cards are maxed, out the door they go.

There are over 2000 firms who invest their own money - not taxpayer money - to turn businesses around.

It's called capitalism, creating jobs and success.

Now go back to memorizing your talking points for the day.
