  •  Ok, let them think Romney lost for (10+ / 0-)

    reasons other than they really really suck and each day, more and more of us know it.

    •  It's not really that (19+ / 0-)

      The piece focuses less on Romney's loss than the fact that his campaign was run using the vulture capitalist business model that made him rich (along with his exorbitant tax fraud for which he should probably do jail time) rather than like "Staples."  One truth we all know, and POTUS said during one of the debates, Mitt Romney was not a business man, he was a finance guy.  And his financial model is built mostly on dishonesty and fraud. And, while Obama was able to essentially start a national business from the ground up like a political Jobs/Wozniak, Mitt really doesn't know squat about honest business or how things work.  And this is the model around which he based his campaign.  And the wingnuts are waking up to it. They've been had.

      •  Vulture capitalist? (5+ / 0-)

        Let's see...can we picture this?

        Mitt sits atop an organization, one that is distressed and failing.  

        And he uses his "genius" for sucking every cent of profit and capital out, and into the pockets of his own team.

        Meanwhile, creatively rewriting corporate docs to look as if the new corporate team is really turning it around!  The financial statements look so good--just don't read the footnotes.

        And finally, when the shit hits the fan, they're out of there.  The shellshocked shareholders and employees don't know what hit them--except their ship just suddenly sank when they thought it was doing great.

        Sounds like the Bain Capital story to me.  The conservatives just got conned by the private equity guys.

        as the head of his campaign, the buck stops on his desk, as it would if God forbid, he had become president.

        He ran a lousy campaign on almost every level, hoping money could buy him out of his incompetency.  It didn't.  There are so many ways his campaign failed, before you EVEN GET TO HIS POLICIES or lack of them, it's exhausting just thinking about numerating them.

        And it is indeed the best irony that in the end, he got bled for the money, greed more the goal than his presidency.  Justice in motion.
