It’s 100% true that the Democrats will always blame the conservatives of the exact same thing they are guilty of, and the Obama administration’s dishonest attack on Mitt Romney for his connection to Bain Capital is no different.
We are now learning that one of Obama’s top bundlers, Jonathan Lavine, was managing director of Bain Capital during the takeover and demise of GST, and also has bundled between $100,000 and $200,000 for Obama’s re-election campaign.
The Obama campaign has been blaming Mitt Romney for the failure of the GST Steel Company in 2001, conveniently ignoring the fact that Mitt Romney left Bain Capital, which had taken over GST, in 1999. This in itself is a dishonest attack, which will surprise no one, but it gets even more egregious when coupled with this salient fact: one of Barack Obama’s top bundlers, Jonathan Lavine, managing director at Bain, who has bundled between $100,000 and $200,000 in contributions for the 2012 Obama Victory Fund, was one of the guys running Bain when GST went belly-up.
It will be hard for Obama to knock Romney on steel; when Romney was at Bain in 1994, he helped launch Steel Dynamics, which currently employs over 6,000 people. When it comes to investment choice and American job creation, Obama is simply no match for Romney.
If it weren’t so serious, the hypocrisy and corruption of the Obama administration and their conies would almost be funny.
