I'll start off the discussion with a few observations: 1. He actually profits from shipping jobs to China. 2. No one in his family ever served in the armed forces and he's doesn't even appear to care about veterans. I could go one but I don't want to take all of the good ones.

Indeed - where is this man's core? Is it what he says to rich backer behind closed doors, like how he thinks half of America are loafers? Is it the red meat he tosses to the religious right to get them to over look his Mormonism?
I don't want a president who made a fortune "harvesting" the profits out of companies and shipping the jobs to China. In Romney's own words he describes what Bain did:
Bain Capital is an investment partnership which was formed to invest in startup c
You mean the profits that fund pensions for teachers, federal workers, local municipalities. You understanding of private equity is limited. China ships jobs here as well. Who do you think we sell our crops to.
The biggest joke of all is how the government bailed out Bain Capital. These conservatives who like to go around saying half of America are takers : http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/the-fede...
The author of this article knows nothing about how the capital stucture of investing works. He did exactly what he should have done. If not the FDIC would have lost even more money. Not to mention they pay for the FDIC to exist.
Sorry I can't trust the views of someone who makes a profit when his clients win or lose. I'm sure you love Romney since he is a fellow salesman.
I am not a salesman, I work in the wealth management business. And it's illegal in the investment business to only profit when clients profit. It's considering sharing in the ownership of a clients account and prohibited by the SEC.
Whatever, bottom line is profits or "wealth" the the goal despite what it means to people. Like Romney, the goal is to make money. The goal of the office of president is to look out for all American's not a select group of investors.
The goal is profit, often through creative destruction. If we applied such ideals as you speak of, the automobile was a bad idea because it cost the horse an buggy business jobs. You fail to see the net effect. Results don't happen in a vacuum
In your mind large corporations like Staples and Sports Authority who bring in cheap goods from China with their huge buying power is great - but this is what killed Mom and Pop small businesses in down towns across the country.
Staples employees over 50k full time people and paid over 475 million in US taxes to the treasury. Not to mention all the tax revenue paid by the employees. A lot more than mom and pop ever produced.
New one! Now its clear that Romney supports allowing the government to force rape victims to bring the rapist's child to term. Talk punishing the victim. Even Bush wouldn't go this far to the religious right.
Romney wants to provide to the very rich are multiples of the Bush tax cuts. The cuts in services and in programs for the poor are much more onerous than anything that Bush ever, ever contemplated - Robert Reich
There is no conflict in these statements, for ex...he supports a pre-existing condition mandate up to a certain age. At which point such a mandate can only put private insurance out of business. You're taking these comments out of context
Romney said that people can go to the emergency room if they have a medical emergency. Amazingly dumb statement as emergency rooms are the most expensive form of healthcare.
He was referring to the irroneous notion that people are denied treatment, which is illegal in the US. Not that he felt it was the first line of defense in a health care plan.
