Before the first debate on October 3rd, get the facts about Romney's business record. When Romney mentions his private-sector experience remember: it wasn't about creating jobs.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Mr. & Mrs. Willard have said, the use of the word 'harvested' with respect to his career at Bain and companies they took over was the worst.  In medical terms you 'harvest' organs.  He harvested the hearts and souls of the American people for his own financial gain.

    of what guys like Romney and companies like Bain do.

    Much of Romney's wealth was created by harvesting his fellow American's jobs, benefits, pensions and retirements.

    He didn't create a great product or business like a Henry Ford or Steve Jobs.
    He took from Americans who work for a living.
     It's amazing that he even had the obtuseness and/or brass to run for President.

    I hope the term "harvesting" gets picked up by others.

    It perfectly describes 'Vampire Capitalism'.
    It should also be noted that parasites usually weaken and often end up killing the host organism.
    That is what the 'Vampire Capitalists' are doing to America.

    Their insatiable greed trumps their lack of patriotism.
