    some of the animals were not wounded, they were perfectly healthy...until Mitt & co emptied the till.

    I wanted Obama the community organizer. I got Obama the Wall Street lawyer.

      Romney's big killings were made by finding a healthy, low debt company, and doing the equivalent of a "bust out."  That is what organized criminals do when they take over a thriving company, and sell off its assets while loading it with debt (and taking the money), then juicing the books to sell it to some sucker (and taking that money too).  People used to go to jail for that, if they didn't have Romney's connections.

      by removing some of the healthy companies, Bain really messed up the whole ecosystem.

      Staples and Sports Authority, two of is his major "successes" killed scores of smaller businesses, putting owners out in the cold, depressing wages for the workers that were able to work at the new consolidated retailers, and taking lots of choice away from the consumer.

      He fucked up a good chunk of our economic ecosystem.
