Democrat Says Bain “Raped” Companies – Then Isn’t Obama is Guilty of Murder?
Is the Obama campaign coordinating a message AT ALL? From Representative James Clyburn on MSNBC:
“When I see what Mitt Romney did… when they collapsed that plan.. they merged two companies, they leveraged the new company… they closed it and walked away with million dollars in profits…
This is not an attack on free enterprise… I don’t take contributions from pay day lenders. I refuse to do that. That’s free enterprise, but there’s something about that that I have a problem with. And there’s something about raping companies and leaving them in debt
I have a real serious problem with that.”
Ok, here we go:
1) If recieving money from a questionable institution like pay day lending is reprehensible, then shouldn’t Obama stop accepting it from Bain and other private equity firms, and give back the $100,000 in contributions bundled by a Bain managing director?
This attack becomes problematic because both Obama and the DNC have taken large contributions from Bain employees, including several of the executives accusatorily cited in the Think Progress article. Bain’s Managing Partner Steve Pagliuca, and Managing Directors Jonathan Lavine and Mark Nunnelly have already given the maximum donation to the Obama campaign and the DNC for the 2012 campaign cycle, each contributing $35,800 to the Obama Victory Fund 2012 and $30,800 to the campaign committee.
Lavine has also been one of Obama’s top bundlers, raising over $100,000* for him so far this cycle.
2) If this constitutes “rape” for a business, then hasn’t Obama outright murdered businesses?
What about Solyndra and the other companies that Obama blithely threw taxpayer money into, just to see it all go to waste? Wouldn’t that constitute Business Partial Birth Abortion?
