A Tale of Three CEOs: Romney, Bain, and a Crooked Executive's Overlooked Story

There are 9 comments on the www.ourfuture.org story from Aug 20, 2012, titled A Tale of Three CEOs: Romney, Bain, and a Crooked Executive's Overlooked Story. In it, www.ourfuture.org reports that:

In the annals of Mitt Romney's days at Bain Capital, one story seems to have escaped our collective memory.

It involves Bain's acquisition of a New York City drug store chain during Mitt Romney's tenure there, and the hiring of a new president who would turn out to have pronounced criminal tendencies. When the story of Duane Reade's Anthony Cuti is put together with the better-known story of Bain's relationship with a Medicare-defrauding lab testing company, it becomes a tale of two criminal CEOs - and of the presidential candidate who was involved in choosing them both.

This author sums it all up this way;

'There's no evidence that Romney was directly involved in the ongoing criminality which took place for years at Damon International—even though some of it took place on his watch. And there's certainly no evidence he knew of the crime spree that Anthony Cuti would eventually undertake when Cuti was hired as Duane Reade's CEO.'

Why are you wasting our time? This is another scam article attempting to make hay out of thin air.

Mr Romney's claim to expeience is his business exprience.

These failures to appoint honest (non criminal) managers for these corporations he took over is very relevent to his managerial skill.

Where there's smoke, there's fire.
The article does not question Romney's criminal tendencies, but it does point a glaring spotlight on his absolutely poor choices for top positions, at the very skill he touts as his strength.

I knowe that is a little complicated, so read it twice:

"The article does not question Romney's criminal tendencies, but it does point a glaring spotlight on his absolutely poor choices for top positions, at the very skill he touts as his strength."

This is Romney's record at Bain Capital.

ourfuture.org is not a source for unbiased information. They condemn conservative politics and will be nothing but an Obama poster.

Article is not worth reading because of its source as anything they say will be filtered through the re elect obama prism.

“Now I have no doubt that Mitt Romney was worried about pink slips — whether he was going to have enough of them to hand out because his company Bain Capital with all the jobs that they killed, I’m sure he was worried that he’d run out of pink slips. There is something inherently wrong when getting rich off failure and sticking it to someone else is how you do your business and I happen to think that’s indefensible. If you’re a victim of Bain Capital’s downsizing, it’s the ultimate insult for Mitt Romney to tell you he feels your pain, because he caused it.”
