Thursday Night Video – Rachel Maddow on Mitt Romney’s Bain Lies
July 12, 2012 Leave a comment
Earlier tonight Rachel Maddow spoke with Boston Globe DC bureau chief Christopher Rowland about Mitt Romney’s attempt to claim he wasn’t working at Bain Capital when he was still their CEO and sole stockholder. The fact that Mitt Romney lies without qualm is no longer news, but this is an important issue because for years he has been trying to run away from Bain’s record of destroying jobs. I would like to point out that there actually is some consistency when it comes to Romney. He seems to have a spine when it comes to the moneyed elite. That’s his prime constituency, then and now. Romney is as insufferable as his “Is there a VIP entrance?” supporters, and I would bet that he doesn’t care about his lying as he simply doesn’t believe that people such as himself should follow the rules. Only I’m not a wealthy man, so my bet would have to be $10, not $10,000.
