Remember Bain Capital?
2012 ring a bell?
Here, let me help:
Rolling Stone: Greed and Debt: The True Story of Mitt Romney and Bain Capital
Washington Post: The two faces of Mitt Romney and Bain Capital
Stink Progress: Romney’s Bain Capital Made Billions While Bankrupting Nearly One-Quarter Of The Companies It Invested In
New Yorker: Obama Doubles Down on Bain Capital Attacks
What an awful company, right? So what kind of pathetic low life would dare soil herself begging a Bain Capital-affiliated company for twelve pieces of silver?
Hillary Clinton, of course.
Clinton abandoned Iowa to suck up Franklin Square Capital money and was then to suck up to Back Rock, a Bain affiliate but she postponed the Bain affair under heavy criticism from Bernie Sanders. Then she postponed it again as Anderson Cooper called her on the carpet for her Wall St ties in the last townhall meeting, but not to wrry- she’s still going- just a bit later.
NEW YORK — Hillary Clinton has postponed another fundraiser with financial services executives amid heavy criticism from rival Bernie Sanders that she is too close to Wall Street.
Clinton will no longer attend an event in Boston scheduled for Friday that was to be hosted by Jonathan Lavine, managing director of Bain Capital affiliate Sankaty Advisors, sources close to the matter said.
The event has not been canceled but will now be held sometime after the New Hampshire primary, which takes place Feb. 9. It is the second such postponement in the last two weeks. The Clinton campaign last week said a New York City event that was set for Thursday with executives from investment management firm BlackRock would now be held Feb. 16th.
Hey, just a minute squeals the Clinton campaign:
The campaign has fired back that President Barack Obama raised millions from the financial industry in 2008…
No joke? Obama took millions from Wall St? Maybe that’s why obama never indicted, tried or imprisoned a single one of those big bankers he promised he would indict, try and imprison.
Now Hillary promises us the same while her fingers do the walking in their pants pockets. Because everyone knows that Goldman Sachs is not the sort of company that looks for returns on its investments.
A commenter from a 2012 post I wrote said this:
Bain’s business activity is the modern equivalent of shipwrecking. They only thrive when other people’s ships are running up on the rocks.
Do you really want a man who has always profited more from failures than from successes put in charge of the whole U.S. economy?
It seems that Hillary’s not above it but we don’t hear a single word from the Hillary supporters now.
Deval Patrick joins Bain Capital, former Mitt Romney firm
Three things to know about Jeffrey Zients, Obama’s next top economic adviser
The fourth thing, the one WaPo omits, is that Zients is a Bain guy.
Donald Trump say that politicians are “full of shit.”
They are, but not nearly as full of shit as Hillary supporters. As I said, Hillary is everything liberals claimed they hated in Mitt Romney.
So up yours, Rolling Stone. Up yours, WaPo, Stink Progress, New Yorker. Up yours, obama.
And up yours, Hillary supporters.
PS: I wouldn’t be surprised if Clinton pulls another squeeker in New Hampshire with some sort of special counting thing. Or a coin toss. See if she once again declares victory before all the votes are counted as she did in Iowa.
