Holy crap - have you read this about the dirty money used to launch Bain?

I thought "you people" would be interested to know....

Rmoney couldn't find investors in Boston for his company so he turned elsewhere...

The first outside investor in Bain was a leading London financier, Sir Jack Lyons, who made a $2.5-million investment through a Panama shell company set up by a Swiss money manager, further shielding his identity. Years later, Lyons was convicted in an unrelated stock fraud scandal.
....
About $9 million came from rich Latin Americans, including powerful Salvadoran families living in Miami during their country's brutal civil war.
At the time, U.S. officials were publicly accusing some exiles in Miami of funding right-wing death squads in El Salvador. Some family members of the first Bain Capital investors were later linked to groups responsible for killings, though no evidence indicates those relatives invested in Bain or benefited from it.
................
Other early investors included Robert Maxwell, the British publishing baron, who invested $2 million. After his drowning death in 1991, investigators discovered Maxwell had stolen hundreds of millions of dollars from his company's pension funds.
.......................
Among the Bain investors were Francisco R.R. de Sola and his cousin Herbert Arturo de Sola, whose brother Orlando de Sola was suspected by State Department officials and the CIA of backing the right-wing death squads, according to now-declassified documents.
Orlando de Sola, who has denied supporting the death squads, is now serving a four-year prison term for unrelated fraud charges. In an interview at the prison in Metapan, El Salvador, he said he did not benefit from the family investment in Bain Capital.

10. He is an Elitist American

Elitist Americans are sooooo beloved by conservatives. We know this because they have brought up President Obama's Elitist background for years now.

This could prove to be a devastating advantage for Governor romney, because unlike the President, the mittster was fully born an Elitist and recent history shows that he is fearlessly out to prove it!

Wile E. Coyote, (ACME/BAIN Inc. CFO and well known romney campaign advisor), is negotiating with Team Orly Tate/Arpaio Posse to inspect mitts Elitist birth certificate. There is no way, imho, that partisan group of repugs won't proclaim the silver spoon stamp on Slick Willy's Elitist birth certificate to be entirely authentic!

With the way our President has come out swinging, I look forward to seeing what magic Team Obama will come up with to counteract this latest strategy from the romney camp.
