Bain Capital is Blue Meat Democrat Politics

And after reviewing evidence cited by the Obama campaign, we reaffirm our conclusion that Romney left the helm of Bain Capital when he took a leave of absence in 1999 to run the Salt Lake City Organizing Committee for the 2002 Winter Olympics – as he has said repeatedly — and never returned to active management. The Obama campaign’s recent ads thus mislead when they point to investments made by Bain, as well as management decisions made by companies in which Bain invested, after that time.
What does the Obama campaign have in rebuttal? Very little, and none of it convincing in our judgment.
--Glenn Kessler, the Washington Post
Nothing is more putrid and unsavory than maggot infested rotten blue meat. Yet this is the meat, which Democrat partisans feed. The president and his campaign love to throw blue meat at his base to keep a festering narrative going. Whether it’s against Gov. Mitt Romney or any other Republican Democrats fill their mouths with the spoilage of rancid blue meat lies.

Bain Capital is just one Democrat Blue Meat issue. It is a mere talking point for Democrat Politicos and the Democrat Media complex from which to whip up the Democrat base of bottom feeders.

Blue meat Democrat politics is rotten to its core as is the Democrat Bain narrative is. This narrative, promoted by president Barry Hussein Soetoro and his Chicago politicking walking dead, is that Mitt Romney outsourced U.S. jobs while at Bain therefore he would not be a good president because he doesn’t care about the American people. The second and most preposterous claim is that Romney committed a felon by falsifying SEC documents saying he was not in control of Bain Capital when he was.

However, the president’s unmeritorious charges have been fact checked and debunked ad infinitum by Newspapers and fact checkers that Democrats consider reputable. These fact checkers found beyond doubt that the president’s Bain Capital attacks against Mitt Romney are lies. Therefore, Bain is the president’s “birther” issue., Fortune Magazine and the Washington Post have all debunked the president’s attacks as baseless and without value. (Source)

Yet like rabid zombies, the president and his spokes men and women have glommed on to the maggot-infested lie that Mitt Romney was in control of Bain Capital, when everyone knows that the time in question Romney was heading up the United States Olympics committee responsible for hosting the Olympics in Salt Lake City in February of 1999.

Unlike the president’s College records, his votes while he was a state Senator in the Illinois state senate and his original passport we have verifiable evidence of Romney’s whereabouts before us and this information is transparent for everyone to see.

Blue meat is not fit for human consummation the America people should reject the president’s narrative concerning Bain Capital and instead insist that the president explain why nothing he said about the economy has worked and is not working.

Where are the shovel ready jobs you promised over the course of your four years Mr. president? Bain Capital and Mr. Romney aren’t the problem your lawless administration and your inept economic solutions are the problem.

Mitt Romney is the answer to America’s problems no matter how much Blue meat to throw at him! (see 32sec video)

    Hi. interesting article. flagrant language was amusing.

    did you see the article kessler followed up with regarding this?

    near the end it states:

    The Bottom Line

    We have previously laid out the evidence, pro and con, concerning Romney’s management of Bain after 1999. Our position has been that he effectively stopped managing Bain when he left for his Olympics job. Most important, without direct evidence, we have been reluctant to grant carte blanche to the Obama campaign or Romney’s GOP rivals to assert that Romney had a direct role in Bain deals between 1999 and 2002 (“Romney closed 1,000 stores…”).

    However, a case could be made that, with his ownership role shown in SEC documents, he still bore some responsibility. (As far we can tell, Romney has never said that the Bain deals done in that period had problems.)

    We strive for the greatest level of accuracy in attack ads. While we cannot definitely prove that Romney did not play a role in Bain deals in 1999, neither can the Obama campaign prove that he did. Our general position has been that the burden of proof rests with the campaign.

    But Romney has failed to provide sufficient evidence that he had “no role whatsoever” at Bain. Over the past few days, we have repeatedly asked Bain Capital whether the firm could provide a statement that a review of Bain board meetings had shown that Romney did not attend any such meeting, either in person or by phone. We are still waiting for a response.

    [UPDATE: The Boston Globe on July 20 published a lengthy article looking into this period. The reporters did not find evidence Romney was involved in specific deals but reveal a Palm Beach, Fla. meeting that he attended with his partners. The newspaper reported that “by remaining CEO and sole shareholder, Romney held on to his leverage in the talks that resulted in his generous 10-year retirement package…Before he left, tasks were doled out to other partners, including work on an investment committee and a compensation committee. He was not a partner in the new private equity funds launched in 2000 and 2001, meaning he had no role in assessing new investments, his partners said, a departure from his having previously had the final say on every deal….But Romney still had a lot of money on the table; much of his personal wealth was tied up in Bain. And he was still technically in charge.”]

    Moreover, as we have previously noted:

    — a news release was issued by Bain Capital in July 1999 quoting Romney on the departure of Bain partners. The news release described him as being on “part-time leave of absence.”

    — the 1999-2001 annual reports of Staples and Marriott International, on whose boards Romney served, continued to list him as heading Bain and various Bain funds. The descriptions are based on a questionnaire that the board director must personally provide.

    So we are at an impasse. Because of the ambiguity, there is considerable room for interpretation of known facts. Going forward, unless new evidence emerges, on a case-by-case basis we may withhold the awarding of Pinocchios when the claim rests mostly on the question of when Romney stopped managing Bain Capital.

    so, i think you're right. it is blue meat. bloody and rare and really quite delish.
