Here arte 10 quotes about Romney & Bain by Republicans.
http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2012/05/22/...
You were a Newt supporter.
"“If Governor Romney would like to give back all the money he’s earned from bankrupting companies and laying off employees over his years, then I would be glad to then listen to him”— Newt Gingrich [Mediaite, 12/14/11]"
"“Now, I have no doubt Mitt Romney was worried about pink slips — whether he was going to have enough of them to hand out because his company, Bain Capital, of all the jobs that they killed”— Rick Perry [New York Times, 1/9/12]"
What you fail to grasp is companies go out of business every single day without help from anyone who are trying to prevent it. Some companies still can't make it work even with help.

Romney is an honest man and good businessman who created over 500,000 jobs at Domino's, Staples, Sports Authority, Sealy, Brookstone, and many others. That's more than Obama.

He wanted the opportunity to do the same for the country.

Like some 2,300 other such U.S. equity firms, Bain looks to buy companies that are underperforming or undervalued and turn them around.
Far from "looting," this is a vital contribution to capitalism and corporate governance.
Some companies bought by private-equity firms suffer job losses after a buy-out because the companies were underperforming.
The critics don't mention the companies acquired in private-equity transactions create more new jobs.
Chrysler and GM might have turned around earlier with fewer job losses and without any taxpayer cost had they been bought by private equity two or three decades ago.
Think of Obama "investing" in Solyndra. Only he didn't use his own money. He used ours. And it still went under.
Keep going, Carol. I already proved my point. Didn't you read your own Republicans calling Romney a job killer?

Are they liars?

There are many equity firms that invest in companies that turn them around. I never said they were all bad.

And then there is Mitt Romney. Made millions while he sent thousands to the unemployment lines.

If NOT for obama, Benghazi would NOT be an issue you idiot. It was obama's war in libya you fool... Benghazi will result in Obama's resignation you fool..

Just imagine what the response from this obama WH would have been had there been 4 jihadists killed instead of 4 Americans you nutcase??

Once you idiot liberals understand that the Obama Administration is fully partnered with the Muslim Brotherhood, everything Barack and his cadre do makes perfect sense.

There's been another child-on-child shooting in America.

A 7-year-old boy was shot in his northeast Houston home on Tuesday -- and the gunman was apparently his younger brother, The Houston Chronicle reported..

According to ABC13.com , the boys were in the bathtub around 9 p.m. when their mother stepped away for a moment. Police say the 5-year-old brother then got out of the tub, found a .22 rifle and shot his older brother.

The injured child was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital. Officials say the bullet went straight through the boy's back, KHOU.com reported. He is expected to recover.

Pat Smith's son Sean Smith, a State Department information officer, was one of four Americans killed during the attack.

JAKE TAPPER: One woman still looking for answers is Pat Smith. Her son, State Department Information Officer Sean Smith was one of the four Americans killed. Pat, thanks so much for being here. I know this is not an easy time. How are you holding up?

PAT SMITH, MOTHER OF SEAN SMITH, KILLED IN BENGHAZI: Terrible. I cry every night. I don't sleep at night. I need answers.

TAPPER: What do you want answers to? What do you not know?

SMITH: Why was there no security for him? When they were supposed to have security and the security that they did have was called back. It just -- things do not add up and I'm just told lies.

TAPPER: Last week, you heard this in the piece the White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said that Benghazi happened a long time ago.

SMITH: Yes, it did.

TAPPER: Eight months ago.

SMITH: Yes.

TAPPER: What is your reaction to that?

SMITH: Why don't they have answers by now? They've had plenty of time to come up with something other than the things they have not told me.

TAPPER: Are you concerned at all that the hearings and Benghazi that has become a political issue, the Republicans have turned it into a political issue. The Democrats have turned it into a political issue as opposed to being a scandal and a tragedy apart from politics?

SMITH: Of course, it's political. That's the way it's been. That's how they're treating it. That's what they're doing with it. They're making it into something that -- why don't they just do their job? They didn't do their job and now they're hiding behind the word political and going from there.

TAPPER: You have expressed disappointment in the past because President Obama, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, then Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, all of them came to you, talked to you.

SMITH: Yes.

TAPPER: And then you haven't heard from them. Have you heard from anybody in the Obama administration? Have you gotten any outreach or any answers at all?

SMITH: I got one telephone call from a clerk that was a couple days after it happened. He was reading to me from the time line, which I already had. And that was it. And since then, all they have told me is that I am not part of the immediate family so they don't want to tell me anything.

TAPPER: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified about the Benghazi tragedy shortly before she left office. I want to play a little bit of what she said.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

HILLARY CLINTON, FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE: With all due respect, the fact is, we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

TAPPER: What was your reaction to that?

SMITH: Well, that's what I want to know. Why did it happen? And she is in charge. Why couldn't she do something about it? I blame her.

TAPPER: You blame Secretary of State Clinton.

SMITH: Yes.

TAPPER: Why?

SMITH: Because that's her department. She is supposed to be on top of it. Yet she claims she knows nothing. It wasn't told to her. Well, who is running the place?

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.

SEOUL, South Korea -- Former NBA star Dennis Rodman is tapping his friendship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to ask for the release of a Korean-American man sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in the North.

"I'm calling on the Supreme Leader of North Korea or as I call him `Kim', to do me a solid and cut Kenneth Bae loose," Rodman said on Twitter. He later called the tweet a direct response to a Seattle Times editorial that dared him to ask Kim for the release if the two are really buddies.

Most Southern States and Conservative voters who live in them are the poorest int he nation. They are also the states that need the most funding. It is usually the conservative states (most) that are sent money to help them than the liberal states.
Most of that spending goes to military facilities because of strategic locations and/or the state's willingness to host the military. These states also have large minority populations with attendant welfare costs.
