When you sow the seeds of greed you harvest misery for the middle class. They need to ask him in the debate to prove his "I created thousands of jobs" line that he has tried to pull on the American public. I don't think he has a single statistic that he could use to show proof of job creation. Bain Capital was not in the job creating business, that much is clear now to the middle class. It existed solely to make millions for an elite few.
And how did he get his millions to invest in this business? Inheritance. This man hasn't done an honest day's work in his life, and it looks like none of his kids will have to either.
Middle class Americans simply cannot relate to this kind of lifestyle. This is why he is so uncomfortable around people and why he has no real core convictions. It's why lie after lie pretty much renders him unphased, it's a way of life. You just tell people what you think they want to hear, what's truth got to do with it?

What did you expect. Mitt's father harvested the cash from the American Motors merger of Hudson Automobile and the Nash-Kelvinator auto/appliance giant 50 years before we knew what a "vulture' capitalist that commited "factory jacking" was. Like father, like son only worse! Greed is great!

It is unfortunate that some well-educated MBA graduates have chosen a path of greed and the "values of selfishness." Mitt and some of his hedge fund manager donors are more focused on squeezing as much money as they can out of whatever they can. It is transparent that Bain Capital was formed to make as much profit as they can with NO regard to its effect on the employees of the companies they bought.

Mitt Romney is very comfortable with his particular business 'speak', because that is what he knows from years of practice and experience. BUSINESS IS NOT LIFE and Mitt's uncomfortable and clumsy.....or how he put it, '.......not very eloquent way of speaking' shows he doesn't know how most people, 99% live, feel, think, etc. and there is a sense about him that he doesn't care to learn. Nowhere in this video does he speak of anything but cold calculation; no mention of 'collateral damage' as people are sometimes described.
