Desperate Candidate Makes Left-Wing Attack on Romney's Position on Corporations | Main | Overnight Open Thread

Fortune Mostly Clears Romney From Charges Alleged in Newt's PAC's Vulture Attack

In two of the three cases, not only are the facts not really as alleged (in one case the company went bankrupt long after Bain had sold it), but Romney also wasn't at Bain during the period complained of.

In the third case, the one I found most alarming -- the DDI one -- Romney supposedly wasn't involved there, either. (Although his name is listed as a "managing partner" in a fund controlling the share, but Bain people claim that's... I don't know, a "legacy" listing? They claim he wasn't involved there, either.)

Mitt Romney

Vote for the candidate who appeals to downscale white voters in the middle... even if the candidate in question does not, in fact, appeal at all to downscale white voters in the middle.

It's confusing, but trust us. We've prevailed in two elections or primaries before this year (out of 17), so seriously, we know what we're doing.

That weird, uneasy vibe you get off Romney? Telling you not to trust him? Don't sweat it, we've heard that a million times. And it's just you, anyway. No one else has that, except for everyone else.

And that in no way will play any role in this election. Because this election will be decided on ISSUES and principles. You know-- Romney's strength.

So it's not like that whole lack-of-charisma or can't-identify-with-him-at-all background will hurt him at all. Nope! It's all smooth sailing from here, on principles and ideas, and trust us, we've got big plans to have some of those, sometime down the line.
