It's not that he has money, it's that he's ALWAYS HAD MONEY. Dude is the prototypical Republican who was born on 3d base and thinks he hit a triple.

The best part is that in the right wing universe, Oprah is an 'Elitist' and Mittens is 'Just a Regular, Average Guy'.

It's quite maddening, really. Disconnects like that are why I gave up on postmodern conservatism in my early 30's.

Of course, Oprah was born poor in Mississippi, as a black woman. Romney was born the family with both money and power, and his bubble existence was reinforced by religious tenets that prohibit half the things normal people do.

Why the hell would I want to be led by someone just like me? I'm an idiot.

I'd prefer someone with intelligence, compassion, and the ability to handle tough situations without losing their sh*t.

Considering how Obama has handled being called every offensive thing you could possibly call him, a few 3am calls, and a Congress that refuses to to anything positive for the American people and he hasn't dropped a few F-bombs about it and punched anyone... I think I'll be voting not to fire him.

I mean, that's what this is, right? Has Obama done anything that would cause him to be fired? Nope. Here's another 4 years. Hope you can get more done. Good luck.

Never mind, I see that her interview is for her magazine, not cable network.

Still, her insincerity is pretty sad. She loved Obama in 08 and can only give him lip service now. While she's sucking Romney's cock.

"I'm going to be quite honest with you, America. Do you know why this country is going to farking hell in a hand basket? It's because of farking morons like my opponent. Governor Romeny is the same tired farking GOP plan of failure. Taxes have been cut for the wealthy for the last farking decade and yet where are the farking jobs? He'll sell this country out faster than you can say 'What the fark?'. He did it at farking Bain and put many Americans in the farking poor house.

Do you want this, America? Do you want to be farked over, again, by the Republican Party?"

So supporting the president without actively campaigning is "only lip service"? And simply speaking to Romney is sucking his cock?

Actually, a lot of people voted for Bush because he was "someone they'd like to have a beer with" and they bought his cowboy act. Clinton had an "aw shucks" thing going and played the sax on Arsenio and talked to kids on Mtv. It was a little before my time but I imagine they voted for Reagan because they saw him playing with a monkey in the movies. Carter was a peanut farmer. I can't think of a President in my lifetime who didn't have a "close to the people" side they were pushing. Even if it was all bullshiat.

Bingo. That's the side that they peddle to the normal folks..The Nascar crowd fell in love with W since he seemed like a raucous Texas fratboy that you could have a beer with. Most people forgot that he was a silver-spoon ivy-leaguer from Connecticut.

I cant say for sure if the Romney campaign should try to pull the wool over people's eyes with the man of the people routine or just come out and say that He's rich and successful and wants America to be prosperous too. There was an article that got greened the other day about how a majority of Americans think the rich deserve their money and there's some truth to it.

He should embrace the rich guy attitude and carry an air of "I got this" since the common man argument is barely palpable and most people can see through it.

I think it's too late for that now. He half assed it a few times and just came off as even more out of touch. And he really doesn't have a leg to stand on with the " He's rich and successful and wants America to be prosperous too" thing since it's too late for anyone who is alive today to be conceived by millionaires.

But I don't want a President who I'd like to have a beer with. It's like for example I used to think that Hillary was a farking biatch but then Palin came around and I realized, if we're going to have a female President, who is going to deal with countries that have no respect towards women, I want a farking biatch.

So I don't mind voting for "elitists". But there's a difference between voting for someone who has more money than I who is now disconnected from the commoners and voting for a moron who's lived in a plastic bubble his whole life and spent his whole career destroying American jobs without seeing anything negative about it.

That isn't what Bain does and you know it.

venture capital rescues companies who are already failing. In come cases it is best to relocate parts of the company overseas in order to save some jobs at home. Is the best scenario that the companies just close for good? Bain does better when the company emerges solvent and secure. it is not in their best interest to simply "destroy american jobs" with wanton carelessness

Nevertheless, Bain plays poker with their money and their shareholders money. Obama's been sending green job money to Finland and Mexico and pledging to be Brazil's best customer for their state-run oil

Bain just cant walk into a company and say: "Hay guyz, we own you now. We're gonna ship yer jerbs to mexico"

They are approached by the owners of a company that is failing. The owners, lacking in some combination of capital and management seek a company like Bain to inject cash as well as assist in restructuring. In return, Bain gets seats on the board, a pre-determined return on investment and a fee. Yes, I said it a fee.

When your company is failing and someone else has to fix it for you, then you owe them money. Again, I pose the question: would it be better if the jobs were never saved at all and the company went under?

Uhh... yeah, they most assuredly can - to a publicly traded company. It's called a hostile takeover, and it was the story of the 80's and a good chunk of the 90's. When the acquiring firm didn't have all the capital to swing the deal themselves, they would get a bank to cover the rest by 'leveraging' the worth of the acquired company (hence the term leveraged buyout) through a variety of ways. If the acquired company couldn't handle the new debt tossed onto it from the buyout, plus the 'management fees', plus whatever difficulties it may have already been facing (all with a slice of interest); well, it got sent to the breaking yard and sold out for scrap.

Note: I have never heard of this happening to a privately held company. This is also completely different from a managed buyout.
