The Bain Pile On

Posted in Election 2012,U.S. by Ryan on the January 9th, 2012

And so, in the party which celebrates equality of opportunity and not equality of outcome, we have major presidential candidates openly lambasting another candidate’s business experience.  In effect, they’re appealing to the basest of arguments that because not all of Romney’s business dealings resulted in full and complete employment at those companies bought by Bain, he is not fit to be President.

So much for an embrace of the free market.  This is such a socialistic mentality, that everyone deserves a job, no matter what.  If Bain can be shown to have unethically manipulated situations to enrich themselves at the expense of others, so be it, I welcome the truth.  Until then, this rhetoric doesn’t belong in the Republican party.  I’d expect it in the Democratic Party, where they appeal to these sorts of base sensibilities of entitlement.

This isn’t just a weak field, this is a desperate field.
