Barack Obama is the first presidential candidate in history to run against free market capitalism. Actually, he ran against capitalism in 2008, but too many Americans were hypnotized by his "hope and change" BS to notice. Now, however, with the Obama Economy ground into the dirt, more people are paying attention to his words----which can now be matched to three and half years of anti-capitalist policies and actions.
Team Obama has made attacks on Mitt Romney's leadership at Bain Capital the spearhead of its anti-free market strategy. Here is the essence of their attack: Capitalism evil, therefore private equity evil, therefore Bain Capital evil, therefore Mitt Romney evil, therefore don't vote for Mitt Romney.
Quite compelling logic, no? Of course, with the massive economic destruction wrought by them, they can't run on their record, so they must demonize and tear down and lie. In other words, just another day at the office for the leftists.
Here is the Senior Senator from NJ, Frank Lautenberg, aka "Methuselah," trying out some hip-hop style rhymes in bashing Bain:
"I'm one of those who believes that Bain deserves our aim," Lautenberg said, smiling.
And later: "They're trying to shame us off Bain."
Then he added: "There's a Bain-ia about this."
The state of NJ must be so proud.
None of this is working with voters who care deeply about the lack of jobs and economic growth, unprecedented spending, record-breaking deficits and debt, and socialized medicine, all inflicted on us by Obama, Methuselah, and crew. Lautenberg can try to "rap" all he wants, and Obama can lie like a dog all day long, but the American people see through the BS.
And by the way, Barry and Frank: we love free market capitalism. Really.
