Obama to Hit Romney
on Bain During Debate

PJ Media, by Rick Moran

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 10/14/2012 10:29:01 AM

It appears that President Obama is going to go after Mitt Romney during Tuesday night’s debate by criticizing his time running Bain Capital, among other attack vectors he will use. That’s the word from a campaign spokesperson who is with the president as he takes 3 days off the campaign trail to prepare for the debate. Fox News: As President Obama began to hunker down at a plush resort here for three full days of debate prep, his campaign team signaled the incumbent may steal a page from Vice President Joe Biden and show a more aggressive tone in Tuesday’s second face-to-face showdown with

But the Obama campaign knows through experience that Romney’s weak spot with Middle Class voters is Bain. Romney has not done the best job defending his business career and he better come up with some zingers for Tuesday night if the president is going raise all the tired, dishonest issues he has put in ads over the last few months.

I must be missing something. I have seen nothing about Bain that distresses this Middle Class voter.

Obie and his minions have tried to paint it as a big bad venture capitalist company, but most see its results, its successes like Staples that employs many thousands of people throughout the country.

Obie focuses on the companies that didn't make it. Heaven knows he should know about those: Solyndra, for example.

Moran seems to be buying into Obie's line.

Didn't Bain take on troubled companies and try to restructure them so that they would continue to operate and be successful? A 100% success rate would be an unreasonable expectation.

Is that where they're going with this? To somehow show that Bain and Romney wanted these companies to fail and shut down? How absurd.

Romney had far more success at Bain than Obama had in the green energy market. But I doubt Romney shoveled funding out to his buddies.

This will only give Romney a perfect opportunity to give 50 million people an Economics 101 lesson. Given the Marxist bent of our government schools, my guess is it will be the first time a large segment of the population ever hears the merits of free enterprise and the concepts of supply and demand. They may be amazed at this brave new world and actually like what they hear. They certainly know from hard experience the Barry's state run cronyism has not helped them the last four years. Bring it on!

The only people the Bain gambit will work with is OWS and the talking heads at MSNBC. If the won goes there Romney should counter with asking if he returned all of the campaign money the current leaders at Bain gave to 0bama and the DNC.

Obama is going to take the Biden tactic. Unable to address facts, he's simply going to hector, interrupt, accuse and mock.

Romney should ready himself for this tactic. He should point out that Barky resorts to these desperate tactics because he cannot allow any discussion of the actual results of his policies.

Most of us understand that business is a bit like gambling, you have to take the risk or nothing happens. Obama has no clue about taking these sorts of risks so doesn't understand how all 'this money stuff' works. Go get 'em, Mitt.

If obama gets tough, he will be making a terrible mistake. Whites who voted for him did, in large part, because he presented himself as a conciliator, a nice guy and cool.
Everybody knew that biden was a fool. So they had low expectations about his behavior.
Not the same with barack.

If Obama decides to 'Biden' Romney, then all Romney needs to do is say something like, 'Mr President, millions of Americans have taken the time to tune in tonight to hear us express our visions for this country's future so that they may make an informed choice on November 6th. We owe it them to ensure that they are able to get the information they need. I will allow you to make your points without interruption and I would appreciate the same courtesy.'

I can't understand why they are harping on Bain. I don't know one single person who cares about that.

But - I do know two professional women who are in their late 50s, out of work for almost two years and unable to find a permanent job. They are living on what had been savings for retirement.

Both of typical NYC democrats who will be voting for Romney.

Romney should throw it back at him like Biden tried to throw the stimulus back at Ryan. Romney just has to make sense. He could also remind us that obama has zero business experience to run on, so he's focusing on little insignificant matters. He should also ask, Which do you prefer, Big Bird or Bain?

Romney should say, "The mission of Bain Capital is to empower companies to succeed in the marketplace. The outcome of this is jobs, jobs, jobs. In the process of making investments there are always a few that don't make it. This is all done with private money and well calculated risk taking. Contrary to the government spending billions of taxpayer dollars on losers and cronies." Yes, I hope Obama opens up the Bain Capital discussion, because Romney will flatten him out like a pancake.

Recently, I heard Rick Santorum talk about his debating experience with Romney and he said, "the man is unflappable." Rest assured, Romney will come well prepared and loaded for bear.

Good idea. Steal a page from Joe The Alcoholic's playbook and demonstrate what a rude arrogant imbecile you are. Play the class envy and the race card in the same hand. Raise your voice, interrupt Mitt over and over again, show contempt, make insult after insult, lie about Mitt again and again, and answer simple questions with long winded off the subject answers like you are addressing a losing football team at halftime, and see how that works out for you.

When Chief Justice John Roberts rewrote ObamaCare from the bench in order to save it, most of the ramifications were immediately apparent. But there was one aspect of the stunt that as a member of the Supreme Court Roberts should have been sensitive to: precedent. Having caved to a public intimidation campaign from the president and his congressional allies (as well as the media) Roberts signaled that the way to get a conservative justice to discard his better judgment and rule against constitutional law was to impugn the court’s reputation in the public square.

Sen. Mark Begich has said repeatedly that he thinks President Obama is wrong about a host of policies, whether on oil drilling, the military or the environment. Begich also has made it perfectly clear that he has no interest in having his fellow Democrat out to his home state of Alaska, saying earlier this year that he doesn’t “care to have him campaign for me.” But that doesn’t mean he’s not looking for the president’s help. Begich has in fact submitted a long wish list to the Obama administration for agency decisions that he thinks would boost his reelection chances.

On its present course, the Supreme Court will ultimately overrule its 1976 decision in Buckley v. Valeo, the landmark case upholding campaign finance “reform” legislation. It can’t come too soon, because Buckley expressly ignored the First Amendment’s injunction that “Congress shall make no law .?.?. abridging the freedom of speech.” Instead of free speech, we now have regulated speech that has ensnarled elections in a web of bizarre and opaque rules.

In 2008, Barack Obama and Brendan Eich both were against gay marriage. Senator Obama averred his support for the one-man/one-woman view of marriage, while Mr. Eich, a cofounder of the Mozilla web-browser company, donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8 — a California ballot initiative that had the effect of making Senator Obama’s avowed marriage policy the law in California, at least until a federal court overturned it on the theory that California’s constitution is unconstitutional.

When has a secretary of state been involved in so many disastrous, self-initiated negotiations? First, John Kerry convenes — against all advice and holding no cards — Geneva negotiations to resolve the Syria conflict and supposedly remove Bashar al-Assad from power. The talks collapse in acrimony and confusion. Kerry’s response? A second Geneva conference that — surprise! — breaks up in acrimony and confusion. Then, even as Russian special forces are taking over Crimea, Kerry goes chasing after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov — first to Paris, then Rome, then London — offering a diplomatic “offramp.” Lavrov shrugs him off.

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Rev. Al Shaprton, the controversial civil rights leader-turned-broadcaster, was a confidential FBi informant for years and helped the feds put members of the Genovese and Gambino organized crime families behind bars, it was revealed Monday in a sensational exposé. President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp´s announcement: "One word: Ridiculous." Camp´s committee has been investigating

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by
