A vision of a Romney America

For a preview of what a Mitt Romney America might look like, read this story over at Bloomberg:

What’s clear from a review of the public record during [Romney’s] management of the private-equity firm Bain Capital from 1985 to 1999 is that Romney was fabulously successful in generating high returns for its investors. He did so, in large part, through heavy use of tax-deductible debt, usually to finance outsized dividends for the firm’s partners and investors. When some of the investments went bad, workers and creditors felt most of the pain. Romney privatized the gains and socialized the losses.

Romney’s investors do well. Everyone else, not so much. And just who is investing in a Romney presidency? People like this.

Are Mitt Romney’s values really the right ones for America? Or the world for that matter?



  1. You attribute words to someone who is not speaking them. It is just your not so humble opinion. Please leave the expletives out of it since it only lowers the reader’s opinion of you, Steve.

  2. Thank you for the comment JoGirl. Mitt Romney made millions and millions of dollars in part by putting other people out of their jobs. And now he wants to be president. He may not have spoken the words I stuck him with, but that’s what he did to people. Is it really worse to humorously create a speech bubble on a picture than it is to actually ruin the lives of hundreds or thousands of people? If you choose to think less of me because I find Mitt Romney reprehensible, so be it. That’s your right and I respect it.

    1. At JoGirl’s suggestion, I have adjusted the image of Romney in this posting, removing the curse word and adding a few others.

    2. Steve,
      I do not think less of you or anyone for being analytical/critical with specific facts. What I stand against is the lack of respect, e.g profanities, with reference to either candidate. You have a brilliant mind coupled with the wordsmith talent and I enjoy reading your blogs, and posts on outlining.

  3. Steve,
    Are you the son of Prof. Zeoli who taught at Central Michigan University back in 60’s-70-s? If so, I am your junior high English teacher….last name of Moffit. Just wondered how you fared…seems you did well in writing, among other things. Sincerely, Linda Ellwood
