  •  So let me get this straight... (13+ / 0-)

    Romney's actually comparing himself to Henry Ford and Steve Jobs and Ray Kroc?  Because that's what it sounds like.  This IS, isn't it, the same Romney who collected $100,000 a year for doing nothing, by his best claims, right?  And he claims this so he won't have to take any blame for breaking up American businesses and sending jobs overseas, right?

    Those names should stick in his throat and choke him.  Do you think Henry Ford would want to be championed by a guy like that?

    •  He never built anything (7+ / 0-)

      That's  the thing about finance.  You don't build anything yourself, you just buy and sell paper, people, companies, whatever, but you really don't make anything.  That's what's gone wrong with our country  in the last 30 years.

      The scientific uncertainty doesn't mean that climate change isn't actually happening.

        And monetized it. However, his peculiar means of spinning straw into gold affected a lot of people's lives and livelihoods.

        •  No, he found suckers (0+ / 0-)

          and played them for a lot of money.   That is Bain in a nutshell.   Suckers to invest with him and sucker banks to leverage that investment and other sucker banks to pour money into the businesses for "expansion" which turns out to be dividends paid to Bain/Romney who then lets the business go bankrupt.

          All the while charging the suckers who invested with him %30 for the privilege of giving him their money.
