It’s no secret that Mitt Romney provided Barrack Obama with the blue print for the healthcare mandate which would force everyone to buy health insurance. But, here’s something that isn’t being widely reported, and that is Mitt Romney’s former company, Bain Capital, was also the architect for the Obama Administration’s takeover of General Motors and Chrysler and, it’s being further reported, that Bain Capital told Obama the takeover should also include the closing of numerous dealerships across the nation which cost a lot of automobile service personnel and dealership owners their livelihoods.
Of course, Bain took over companies to make money for its shareholders, while Obama’s government takeover of private industry was to consolidate power for himself and his “big government” dream. In either case it was the small business owner or the blue collar worker that suffered economically.
Lawyers like to use the term “dirty hands” when they argue a lawsuit about whether or not the person doing the accusing actually participated in the wrong doing they are suing over. In the case of Mitt Romney, for me at least, perhaps we need to take a closer look at his hands and see if there’s still some dirt under his fingernails.
There’s no doubt the news media wants us to believe it is only Mr. Romney who will be able to win against Barrack Obama. But here’s really what we need to know. Any one of the other GOP candidates would also be able to beat Obama. At issue is the definition of what conservatism really means and what free enterprise really means. I believe free enterprise is defined as an opportunity to grow rich. Listen to me: a company has every right to succeed or fail on its own. Most of us can fail all by ourselves and don’t need either the government or a big corporation to come in and close us down.
