    just to get the media talking about Rev Wright.

    Anybody think CNN will be able to avoid discussing this issue? I have my doubts.

    Stuff handled like this gets the Romney team free media air time and they don't have to run the ads nor do they have to deal with being responsible for it coming up because they've "repudiated" the idea.

    I don't like it but it's clever and gets Bain off the pundits talking points.

      I say, "For the moment." I truly hope that PBO's campaign has a whole arsenal full of Bain attacks going right into Nov.

      •  Oh, I hope so too (0+ / 0-)

        I'm still looking into it and still not impressed so far

        For example, even with his flagship claim:Staples:
        - Bain only invested 6.9% of the start up bucks to take it public - no controlling interest - the CEO of Staples did the grunt work
        - it wasn't Bain's idea nor did they manage it
        - I suspect like Walmart and other national stores like that, for every job they added to Staples, it removed about 1.4 jobs from the Mom & Pop stores so there was a net job loss

      Terrible timing for this. Rahm has already stated he is not pleased. They have already failed at securing the funding and tax breaks once, this is going to really hurt.
