Romney: a wolf in sheep's clothing.

If you’ve been following the Republican nominees up until now, you’ve likely heard at least once that Mitt Romney “likes to fire people.” I’ve heard the sentiment many times over the course of the last several months, but hadn’t really had a chance to look into the deals Mitt Romney spearheaded as CEO of Bain Capital. Then today, a video surfaced in my Facebook feed called, “When Mitt Romney Came to Town.” It’s a 28-minute short film released by the pro-Gingrich PAC Winning Our Future. The documentary covers Romney’s tenure at Bain and was made by Jason Killian Meath, “a former associate of Romney’s top strategists,” according to The Daily Beast. Meath “is an award-winning director who worked on Romney political ads in Romney’s run against John McCain in 2004,” but Meath’s services were not retained this time around, so the Beast suggests there’s an air of “vendetta” surrounding the film, which was released back in January. The film may be making the rounds again as a result of the new Obama campaign site Romney Economics, featuring a commercial using similar anti-Bain themes.

All of the commentary about Romney’s vicious slash-and-burn style of acquiring companies and gutting them of workers is backed up by newspaper quotes throughout “When Mitt Romney Came to Town,” which is an enormously sad anti-greed manifesto. The interviews with families affected by Bain’s buyouts will break your heart, but nothing will shock you more than hearing Romney say – with a smile in his heart, and on more than one occasion – “For an economy to thrive, there are a lot of people who will suffer as a result of that.”

No matter what the average American conservative/Republican thinks of Obama’s liberal social policies, they certainly can’t think any better of a man like Mitt Romney, who is a heartless, selfish, wishy-washy wolf in sheep’s clothing willing to put his dog in a box on his car’s roof, bully kids for being gay and destroy American families in order to make himself millions. If you have time, watch the whole piece, below. If not, you’ll learn enough in ten minutes to make your stomach turn:

    Romney is a Vampire in Mormon Clothing… under his leadership, Bain gutted companies, sucking them dry and leaving families in shambles without work or a means to provide for their children. Is this the type of leader we want?

    People this wealthy do not have the same needs as most Americans. Their experiences, insights, loyalties, and sympathies are drastically different from average and even above average Americans. The fact that his party has so successfully diverted attention from this reality is astounding to me. That they have achieved it by whipping up a frenzy about the evils of social liberalism is a very unfortunate comment on America.

    And people want this kind of person as president. It sickens me.

    Only leftists who dislike and/or misunderstand capitalism would think that Bain and firms like them are evil. The companies that Bain bought out and took a risk on were failing in the first place. Some could be saved, some couldn’t.
