Romney's "Every Town Counts" Bus Tour Skips Towns Battered by Bain Capitalism



When Romney made stops in Janesville and Dubuque Monday, he was just up the road from the town of Freeport, Illinois.

But Romney did not stop in Freeport, a town that like Janesville and Dubuque has been hard hit by trade and fiscal policies that encourage corporations to shutter U.S. factories and ship jobs overseas -- and that has been even harder hit by speculators who buy up factories, strip the assets and close them.

On the day Romney was busing across the region, employees of Freeportís Sensata Technologies plant gathered in front of the factory with handmade signs that read:

"Romney! Stop Bain Outsourcing to China."

"Mitt Romney Save Our Jobs"

"Romney: Instead of talking about JOBS, just don't ship MINE to China."

2. The whole tour is a front

Romney is sizing up possible takeovers for Bain.

3. A friend of mine from GA made a great analogy

 

He compared Bain to General Sherman. I'd love to see a man of Bain's path of destruction compared to Sherman's. Bain has probably starved more people than him too.

6. His billionaire terrorist backers dream of a government that's run like Bain Capital.

Which is why they're spending a shit ton of cash and driving our economy into the toilet on purpose to appoint him CEO of America.
