Well this should make it all better. Communist, union thug, [and AFL-CIO President] Richard Trumka is down with Newt Gingrich’s attacks on Mitt Romney and Bain. That’s some great company Newt is keeping. All that’s missing is an endorsement by Satan and Obama to make this story complete!
“I heard [host Joe Scarborough] say it’s going to backfire because of the attack on free enterprise. The question is what kind of free enterprise, and who does that free enterprise benefit?” Trumka said. “If that kind of free enterprise only benefits the top percent, you’re going to see more of what you saw on the street.”
“It resonates with people” when you explain leveraged buyouts, said Trumka, asserting that 22 percent of the time, Bain’s buyouts failed.
Wait a minute. The union thug, Trumpka, asserts Bain’s bailout’s failed 22% of the time. I’m a glass half full kind of guy, so the way I look at it, this means Bain SUCCEEDED 78% OF THE TIME! I’m sure a lot of companies would kill for that kind of success.
BTW, the Obama regime’s bailouts have failed 100% of the time. Or put another way, they have a 0% success rate.
78% success rate vs 0% success rate. Is this REALLY the argument Trumka wants to make?
It’s nice to know that Newt’s message resonates so strongly with the communist movement though.
Back when all of the candidates were gearing up, I noted several candidates who should be running as democrats and primarying Obama, because that’s the party they belonged in. Mitt Romney was one of these candidates, Newt Gingrich was another.
These latest stunts prove I was right. Newt DEFINITELY belongs in the democrat party.
