Romney is damaged goods...

on those allegedly awful, unseemly Bain attacks:

In the sustained flood of advertising, the one thing that stands out is how strong the reactions to Mitt Romney are-- particularly in Ohio -- where he has been defined as hurting workers in his work at Bain....

Romney is damaged heading into this race....


Respondents immediately volunteer that Romney is rich, out of touch, and in the pocket for Wall Street and big finance. That was true before we introduced any information -- reflecting the outside advertising on Bain that was airing at the time of the groups in Ohio.

Romney will enact policies that keep himself and his class where they are. Thereís a certain Ė I think thereís a certain level when you get so high up the business where youíre making so much money that you donít need where you just lose some of your humanity and you just donít care. (Non-college-educated woman, Columbus, OH)....


There's quote after quote like this, all about Romney's wealth. And these focus-groupers aren't MSNBC-watching, coast-dwelling Ivy Leaguers -- they're people struggling to stay in the middle class in Pennsylvania and Ohio, many of them not college educated. They're responding to ... class warfare.

4. Money isn't the root of evil, it is the unhealthy LOVE of money that is the root of their evil

rather than spend money in safety equipment, "the Corporation that is a person my friend" had figured it is financially acceptable to kill 11 people in the gulf rather than spend money on safety equipment.

It is cheaper to buy equipment to dig miners out of the ground rather than spend millions on systems to prevent gas build up and explosions.

All of this because of their love of the fucking dollar over everything else. 10 billiion in profits in the first quarter is simply not enough! why in hell should we have to make our products safer? that takes millions of dollars away from our BILLIONS in profits...damn the government regulators, those limp-wristed liberal losers!

Romney's vain capital, I mean Bain Capital made money KILLING jobs and sucking the blood out of the corpse of the company for profit...simply because it was an easier more profitable way to make more money. The picture of Rawmoney and his Vain cohorts with money sticking out of orifices and pockets is not an exaggeration...they would rather FIRE you, or let you die and take your 20.00 an hour and stuff it in an unused orifice. plain and simple truth.

7. I think the never-ending primaries showed how thin the support for Romney is

They attacked Romney from the right and that image will stay with their base into November -- liberal, grandfather of Obama-care, Kennedy-wannabe, 2nd generation Washington insider, governor of Taxachussettes.

A little attack from the left and Romney is nowhere.
