The Mitt Romney jobs creator myth is alive and the brainwashing by the Romney campaign team is annoying. Forget about all of the nonsense about free enterprise and capitalism being on trial, those are deflections designed to keep you away from the real question.
How does Mitt Romney’s experience at Bain Capital prepare him for creating American jobs and restarting the economy if he becomes President of the United States? For years we heard this Romney campaign spin that he was an economic wizard, War69.com believed it, we thought Romney was some sort of economic guru with a keen mind and a history of turning around companies with ideas not money. That turned out to be a lie, Romney was good at making money and investing in companies but he contributed zero ideas and zero management decisions in the companies that actually grew once Bain gave them the money.
The debate question should be, Mr. Romney what did you actually do at Bain Capital? How did you create jobs? How does being a venture capitalist translate into being a President? Also if you want to possibly upset Romney in a debate, a candidate should say, Mr. Romney will you stop the brainwashing of the American public, that might remind him of his father George Romney, it could unhinge Romney.
Again the question is not how much money Romney made at Bain Capital, not how much he raided particular corporations or how much he bled out of a company. The question is why do you claim your venture capitalist experience gives you the tools to turn around this economy. All you did was take Mr. Bain’s money and throw it at companies in need. Mitt Romney never started a company from the ground up and made the decisions that led it to growth. Mitt Romney is not Steve Jobs, Mitt Romney is not Ray Kroc, Mitt Romney is not Lee Iacocca, Mitt Romney is not an entrepreneur, he has not created one job as a venture capitalist. Mitt Romney can make all the money in the world but don’t tell us this prepares you to turn around the economy. Where are your economic ideas, your economic plans, not some 58 point plan that politico apologist David Brooks will write about, tell us what your plans are, what is your short term and long term strategy for turning around America’s economy, where are the specific ideas?
Mitt Romney has more in common with Gordon Gekko, Ivan Boesky, Michael Milken, George Soros
