Why is this something not further discussed. I don't expect FOX to get real about Willards "real" qualifications for being the "Economic genious" this country needs as a president... but where is the questions from the so called LIBERAL MEDIA?
The short answer: debt. He saddled companies with debt, extracted what value he could, paid himself a big bonus, and walked away. As Matt puts it:
"This is the plain, stark reality that has somehow eluded America's top political journalists for two consecutive presidential campaigns: Mitt Romney is one of the greatest and most irresponsible debt creators of all time."
Matt's right: nobody that I'm aware of has made the connection between the theme of the GOP convention -- "We Built It" -- and what leveraged buyout outfits like Bain do, which is to un-build things. KB Toys had 1,300 stores when Bain took them over; now they have 0. That's not building, that's un-building. When Bain took over Ampad paper and stuck the company with $60 million in annual debt payments that resulted in bankruptcy and the firing hundreds of workers -- that's not building, that's un-building. There's a reason the euphemism for this is "creative destruction," and not "creative building." Because everyone involved knows that it's not about building.
And it's certainly not about creating jobs.
Certainly not with a LIVING WAGE.
The truth is both Romney and Trump are examples of what is wrong with our economy.... and this is something that should be deeply discussed.
You can't run a country like a company ... it is bad enough too many companies have been making it policy to screw their own company to make a dollar... and have the tax payer foot the bill.
