  •  Hollywood needs obvious villainy (6+ / 0-)

    Gordon Gekko did things out in the open.  It made a good movie.  Romney's tricks are incredibly arcane.  The whole idea of Bain Capital was to have the "smartest guys in the room" outsmart both the taxman and other stakeholders.  So they create hideously complex financial arrangements that are not transparent at all.  This would make for a really boring movie -- guys in suits talking to each other in finance and tax jargon.  But in the real world it has much higher stakes than Gekko's wide-open raiding.
