More of the Real Mitt Romney..

The second clip from Mother Jones is no way as bombshell as the 47% video… but.. this is the real version of him.. with color and pressure in his voice… not the robotic blah blah he usually reverts to on almost every issue today… this is stuff he believes in… and the word “harvest” is bad… thinking about the consequences… and in part where this “profit” he’s reaping comes from… or whom it is taken from…..

ROMNEY’S GOAL FOR THE COMPANIES BAIN ACQUIRED:…:

ROMNEY’S GOAL FOR THE COMPANIES BAIN ACQUIRED: “HARVEST THEM AT SIGNIFICANT PROFIT”

Here’s a video of Romney in his early years at Bain, explaining his purpose in  acquiring companies was to “harvest them at significant profit.”

No one should be surprised. After all, Bain Capital wasn’t in the business of creating jobs. It was in the business of creating profits.

The two goals aren’t at all the same — as  Americans whose jobs have been eliminated or whose wages and benefits have been cut know all too well.

For years, higher corporate profits have come at the expense of fewer jobs and lower wages. Business leaders and financiers have been “harvesting” like mad, leaving most Americans behind in the dirt.  

Romney’s main selling point to voters is his so-called “business experience.” Yet America can’t afford this sort of “business experience” in the White House.

To the contrary, we need someone who doesn’t see the economy as profits to be harvested, but as people who need more and better jobs.

In 2012 that person is Barack Obama, not Mitt Romney.
