Bill Maher showed photos of hip-hip stars posing with wads of cash in their hands, or in their mouths, and then a photo of Mittens and his whiter-than-white homies at Bain Capital, in similar poses with money. More here.
I’m joking, but in his speeches and attack ads against Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich sounds a lot like the thousands of Occupiers who protested the vulture capitalism that Mitt personifies. More here.
Mitt Romney actually managed to out-slime Newt Gingrich in campaign ads leading up to the Iowa primary, but Newt is hitting back with a 27-minute film, “When Romney Comes to Town,” that convincingly portrays Mittens as the cold-blooded jobs-killer he was as CEO at Bain Capital:
From Raw Story:
Produced by a former top Romney strategist, the film focuses on people turned out of their jobs at four of the many companies Bain essentially looted, tapping into the popular discontentment with Wall Street to label Romney a “corporate raider.”
The companies — laundry equipment maker UniMac, electronics maker DDI, toy store chain KayBee Toys and office supplier AmPad — were all purchased by Bain [Capital] and liquidated, “killing jobs for big financial rewards,” the film explains.
“They could care less about us, the way I see it,” one of the film’s subjects explains. “Who am I? Mitt Romney and them guys, they don’t care about who I am.”
The pro-Gingrich PAC Winning Our Future placed a top-dollar bid on the 27-minute film after pro-Romney PACs essentially destroyed Gingrich’s chances in Iowa with a flood of negative advertising that blanketed the airwaves.
Footnote: You can watch the whole film on YouTube.
Does it take a thief to know a thief? If so, it’s no accident that the two most ruthlessly dishonest men vying for the Republican presidential nomination are accusing each other of corruption. More here.
