The nobama camp might as well donate money to the poor instead of bullshyte tv ads. They're getting hilarious.

Among those who vied to succeed Kennedy was Steve Pagliuca, a managing director with Bain Capital since 1989. Before that he had been a management consultant with Bain & Company, where he helped establish the firm's business turnaround practice. And, yes, he attended Harvard Business School.

Sounds a lot like Mitt Romney, except that Pagliuca was running as a Democrat. He was one of four candidates in a primary that also included Massachusetts AG Martha Coakley, Congressman Mike Capuano and social entrepreneur Alan Khaz

The dems are so funny!

From the article:

When Mitt Romney led Bain,” it continues,“they saw Global Tech as a good investment, even knowing that the firm promoted its practice of exploiting low-wage labor to its investors.”
Romney’s ties to Global Tech were first documented last month in a Boston Globe report that noted the appliance-maker promoted itself to investors by touting “inexpensive labor” as a top selling point.

Except for occasional squawks during these past decades, america hasn't spoken strongly of their moral obligation to other nations.

When such immorality does get the bright light of publicity, the mirror shows america at its worst..... & Romneyhood (Robinhood in reverse) is america at its worst.

President Clinton will close years of political and economic debate Tuesday and seal a major achievement of his administration by signing off on normalized trade with China.Clinton will sign the measure, approved by Congress this year, in a White House ceremony Tuesday afternoon. The president has invited key lawmakers to the South Lawn to witness his signing of the U.S.-China Relations Act of 2000.The bill's passage by the Senate on September 19 capped years of negotiations with Beijing and intense lobbying by the Clinton administration, business and labor interests. The move is designed to open China's mammoth market to U.S. businesses and pave the way for China's entry into the World Trade Organization, ending a 20-year-old U.S. ritual of annually reviewing China's trade status.The bill survived a bruising battle in the House of Representatives in May, and Clinton has hailed the measure as a turning point in relations between the world's richest and most populous nations.Granting permanent, normal trade relations to China is considered the most important U.S. trade legislation since passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1993. But it faced a long campaign of opposition from labor, human rights and conservative groups who wanted to retain the annual review of trade relations with China.

Listen to the part of the 47% film when Willard gleefully lies about the plight of these Chinese workers. He actually says that the barbed-wire fences are there to keep these factories from being swarmed by wannabe workers smashing their way through to get one of these jobs. How does he explain the suicide nets? You can't make this stuff up! Willard's Bain is straight out of Nightmare Land!

Bluebonnets has it right.
During the Clinton years (Clinton was a dem)
there was plenty of bad policy be pumped out.
The repeal of the Glass-Stealgall law was also
a major player in today's econ woes.
There was this greedy guy-named Rubin- who worked
for the Clinton administration....only he wasn't
working for the government....HE WAS working for himself so that he could become filthy rich!
He ended his direct public service with Clinton,
but continued underneath up until the crash.
He claimed to be a hybrid....one foot private
sector at Citi Group and one foot government...
all the while molding things for himself!
Right before the crash, he called Bush up on the phone
and told Bush....We're going to crash!
Citi Group got one heck of a bailout...and Rubin
ended up with millions and millions of cash.
Obama camp says...We inherited from Bush...
they've got it all wrong....They inherited it
from Clinton and Rubin!
