Mitt Romney: Just Trust Me

Are you fucking kidding me?!

“[W]e only talk about issues. And we can talk about the differences between our positions and our opponent's position.” Romney said of his own campaign: “[O]ur ads haven't gone after the president personally. … [W]e haven't dredged up the old stuff that people talked about last time around. We haven't gone after the personal things.”
Personal things? PERSONAL THINGS?!

For a fucking year now, Mitt Romney has been touting his time as a the rootinest, tootinest bobtailed wildcat north, south, east or west of the Great Salt Lake. He's the kick ass and take names private sector job creator at his private equity firm, Bain Capital. He's a master CEO who created a bajillion jobs, and it's through this amazing experience in the private sector which President Obama lacks, that he is better suited to run the U.S. of A. That's all we've heard from this sleazy, used car salesman.

And now with less than 90 days to go, now that we are in the thick of it campaign-wise, now that the dirty little dealings of Bain's vulture capitalism are coming to light, now that we find out that Mitt Romney was still the de facto head of Bain for three years after the time he claims he left, now he's claiming that what he's been putting front and center as the cornerstone of his leadership bona fides is "personal' and shouldn't be subject to criticism?


Now all of this is stemming from the Priorities USA SuperPAC ad centering on Joe Soptic, a victim of Bain's vulture capitalism. Everyone on the right is having an apoplectic fit over the ad, saying it goes too far and points to Romney as Soptic's wife's murderer after she was stricken with cancer but waited too long for treatment because they had lost their health insurance. They're all laying it at the feet of the Obama campaign when the fact of the matter is that it's a SuperPAC ad, not an Obama campaign ad.

How do you like Citizens' United now, bitches?
