Mitt Romney is not only a flip-flopper and liar, he got very rich as a corporate raider and job killer. As usual, he is trying to buy the presidency with his wealth.

A front page story in the New York Times on Sunday, June 3rd questioned some of Romney’s claims about his supposedly stellar business career. The Times interviewed numerous people for the story and discovered that as a venture capitalist most of the risk in the investing was not placed on Romney but rather on the other partners in the firm.

Two transactions made by the firm are reported in the article, one with Dade Behring in 1999 and another with KB Toys in 2001. In both cases, Bain Capital’s involvement forced the companies to file for bankruptcy and layoff thousands of workers. Romney was a heavy investor in Bain Capital at the time and remains one to this day.

Romney’s cold-blooded business tactics are documented in an in-depth series on Romney and his life in the Boston Globe. A story investigating Romney's successful business career examined several transactions made by Romney's company, Bain Capital. One of these transactions involved a company called Ampad, which Bain Capital purchased in 1992. After several years of tremendous profits for Romney and his fellow investors, and hardship for the company’s workers, Bain shut down several plants, leaving hundreds of workers without jobs. In the end Bain Capital’s involvement with Ampad forced the company to file for bankruptcy and left over 500 people without jobs.

Is that any worse than actually having SOROS buy the presidency for you?

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
Isn't it customary to post a link with an article?

@Renaldo Dubois,
I normally do, but this went back to an old archive so I don't have a link for you.

What are you worried about?

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
I found the story you didn't post a link to. Here is the link to the story you copied. You're not that smart. You're nothing more than a union parrot.

@Renaldo Dubois,
I had not seen your link. Thanks for it as it is more comprehensive.

Interesting that you have no comments about Romney's histery but can only call me a union parrot. How smart does that make you?

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
Why didn't you post the link with the story? Do you attend the same school of plagurism that Joe Biden attended?

You are a union parrot. You just proved it.

OK, I'm ending commenting on your attacks. If you knew anything about me, you would know that I don't play with trolls.

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
So you think you can attack Romney with an attack from a union site without providing a link to hide your source?

@Renaldo Dubois,
Isent it odd that when people get tired of your stupid bull shyt posts and refuse to converse with you any more you consider it a win. This is just a factual post and is my opinion. I dont want to converse with an idiot either!!!

@RABEL222,
Well, now that the troll has diverted this post away from how Mitt Romney got his wealth, is anyone interested in discussing Romney's history?
