Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

It is abundantly clear how uncomfortable Republicans are with Mitt Romney's record at Bain Capital.  Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell once again showed his complete disconnect from the truth:

"I do think that it's interesting to note that the whole notion of our success and of capitalism seems to be under attack by this administration across the board, not just in the campaign, but through the actions of the government itself," McConnell said at a Capitol Hill press conference.

"They seem to have forgotten what made this country great and what has lifted literally millions of Americans out of poverty for a long period of time has been a robust capitalist system," McConnell continued. "I think the view of this administration is that if you're making a profit you must be up to no good. You must be either mistreating your employees or cheating your customers or both."


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Now we know that this far from the truth.  President Obama supports regulated capitalism in the tradition of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman and John F. Kennedy and even Richard Nixon.  The real truth is that Republicans are extremely uncomfortable with the business record of the man that is their presidential candidate.  This is all the more pronounced given that their primary argument for Mitt Romney's qualification for the presidency is his business experience.  As Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid explained:

I believe that Gov Romney, who holds himself out to be this great business man, should have to, should have his record looked at.
Fortunately, President Obama and his campaign are all over this.  They are not going to let this die out because it speaks to the differences between President Obama and Mitt Romney.  Remember, Mitt Romney likes to boast about all those jobs he created at Bain.  Well, here is what a former managing partner said of Bain:
I never thought of what I do for a living as job creation. … The primary goal of private equity is to create wealth for your investors.
To quote President Obama on the president's responsibility when it comes to the economy:
When you're president as opposed to the head of a private equity firm, then your job is not simply to maximize profits.  Your job is to figure out how everybody in the country has a fair shot.
The only thing under attack from President Obama is Mitt Romney's record and what that record represents.  If Romney and his fellow Republicans can't take the heat, then they should get out of the kitchen.
