It seems Bill O'Reilly is terribly upset that that damned communist Mother Jones went and did something horrible, like letting us here Romney's own words from his time at Bain Capital, and so naturally he does his best to try to deflect from the situation by attacking the messenger.
I hate to break it to Bill-O, but if he thinks the average voter out there who hasn't been propagandized by Fox and right wing hate talk is going to hear the word "harvest" and not think of a vulture capitalist that just wants to extract the wealth from a company and raid pensions and salaries, I think he's sadly mistaken.
And you've just got to love the irony of O'Reilly in one breath defending the type of business Mitt Romney ran, and then in the next bemoaning median income going down. Par for the course for a network that keeps telling its viewers that everything that's wrong with the world started the day America elected Barack Obama.
The far-left magazine Mother Jones (possibly one of Fidel Castro's favorite publications) has put out another old video of Mitt Romney, in which he says Bain Capital 'was formed to invest in start-up companies and ongoing companies ... then harvest them at a significant profit.' Even though Mother Jones is appalled, that's what capitalism is! You grow companies, you make them more profitable, then if you're lucky you sell them for lots of money. Sometimes the free market is brutal, but it does provide vast opportunity for those willing to work hard and take chances.
Capitalism has made the USA the most powerful nation on Earth; it's the primary reason people all over the world are desperate to come here. But apparently some who support President Obama don't much like capitalism. Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, who criticized Romney's comments, doesn't like the fact that some American companies maximize profits by limiting compensation to workers and controlling their hiring. Reich wants guaranteed wages, salaries, and tenure, all the things that happen in socialistic countries. The question is, does President Obama believe the same things that Dr. Reich and Mother Jones magazine believe? The answer to that question is ... maybe.
