Bane didn't have a powerful father. Bane's father was a sentenced criminal. Bane, as a child, had to serve out the remainder of his father's sentence when his father escaped from prison.

Sad thing, that instead of basing ones voting decision on whether or not the Democrat or Republican is best for the White House based on the direction that they'll try to steer this country, there will be a segment of the population that will base their voting decision on this instead.

The stupid has started burning early today.

Romney as Bane doesn't make much sense as an analogy.

Bain breaking the back of Romney's campaign is the correct analogy.

I'm playing Arkahm Asylum for the first time right now. In his character profile in that game, they are still going with the original Bane Origin Story.

Awesome game, in case anyone is even more horribly late to the party on this than I am.

Actually the more I think about it the more sense Romney as Batman makes. He has multiple identities. Owes everything to his wealthy parents. Likes beating up on poor minorities. Knows everyone's secrets but hides his own. Clearly just pretends to fit in with normal society. Owns an unknowable number of vehicles. It fits.

Rush was going on about this earlier today.

Basically: "Bane / Bain - coincidence? I think not. This is a plan to make empty headed youths who dont think or research associate Romney with a cartoon villain. Next up lets talk about the Obama quote where nobody made it own their own - don't think about it, be reactionary like me"

I love it when he criticizes Obama for being a pothead college graduate. I guess because it's elitist- it's better to be hooked on pain killers and be a college dropout from a small Missouri college and then spread vitriol and hate all over the airwaves.

This trial balloon wouldnt be out there if they didnt think it might be effective, didnt just pop up out there all by itself.

Look at it this way, all you have to do is GIS for Bain and you get "Mitt Romney is a poopyhead".

It's classic lowest common denominator politics, whether or not the comparision is warranted or not.

ferretman: Wow...this is what our Commander-in-Chief has been reduced to. What an embarrassment.


Why should he be embarrassed? He didn't say it, nor did his admin or campaign.

Bedard writes:

"Bane" is the terrorist in the new movie who drives the caped crusader out of semi-retirement in the final Batman movie. Democrats, who believe they have Romney on the ropes over the president's assault on his leadership at Bain Capital, said the comparisons are too rich to ignore.
"It has been observed that movies can reflect the national mood," said Democratic advisor and former Clinton aide Christopher Lehane. "Whether it is spelled Bain and being put out by the Obama campaign or Bane and being out by Hollywood, the narratives are similar: a highly intelligent villain with offshore interests and a past both are seeking to cover up who had a powerful father and is set on pillaging society," he added.

Bedard either lied from one sentence to the next or he conveniently forgot to provide proof of how this was from the Obama administration.

If you don't feel ashamed or retarded yet, you should keep posting, we'll get you to that state.
