    if you found that objectionable with Romney, you have to find it objectionable here.

    •  Romney is a vulture capitalist (0+ / 0-)

      Whatever proceeds he gets... he takes the skin off someone else's back to do so.

      He destroys businesses in the US, steals pension funds and deliberately bankrupts entire communities. There is no upside to his "creative" destruction (other than the bullshit that some economics will spew about the necessary destruction so our economy can be freed from stifling antiquated business).

      And you don't have the complete facts at your fingertips on the legalities of Gore's investment funds.

      A society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they know they shall never sit.

        We're talking about the utilization of offshores in hedge funds, not pension fund theft and forced bankruptcies.  

        re: legalities: these are very common structures that are in place for a reason.  Just like Bain, Gen IM has a series of onshore funds for US investors, offshore funds for nonprofits and non-US investors, and a series of Cayman Islands general partnerships to manage them.
