The seven Democrats who have disagreed with Obama’s attacks on Bain Capital

I didn’t realize the list was this long of Democrats who have spoken out against the attacks on Bain:

The list should be much longer, but then having an independent thought in the Democrat party is frowned upon. Of course if your independent thought is contrary to Obama’s thought, then you are metaphorically whipped into submission for all to see.

    I don’t know about the rest of these 7 dems but ed spendell is a crook. You’d have a stronger case if you didn’t include the likes of him.

    • Stehekin912

      Hmmmm….maybe it could be said that the administration’s position on this subject is so off base that even crooks are against it. 🙂

      • ff2009

        That’s a much better argument, and you don’t have to crawl in bed with the likes of spendell to make it.

    • They’re all crooks, so how can any argument be won – but then again, we have enough of them in our party – in fact, I really want a 3rd party. We’re all going to hell.

  • This is already biting Obama. Romney needs to point out that Obama is a speculator with tax dollars and is jealous that he isn’t as good at it as Romney. Solyndra ring any bells?!

  • Joe

    I love this and this is very appropiate for the occasion >>

    I know you will enjoy this !!

    • badbadlibs

      You’re right, I did enjoy that! No refund needed!

      side note: my sister was an extra in that film 😉

    • GreenBeretWay

      Cool Joe.That made my day HAPPY.

  • Spartan4Palin

    I can’t help but share this great video.

    I hope you all are inspired by it? I think it was put together rather well!!! Many of you have probably seen it. But the message will never be old!!

      I wish Reagan could be cloned

  • sDee

    Hussein gets away with the good cop bad cop routine with these bankers. The small fry crooks do not.

    I do not know about the rest but Bain was a major contributor to Booker. They called him in on this one. The banksters have a very short leash on their politicos.

    • badbadlibs

      We get it..Bain bad…..Romney bad…bo….bad, how about YOU run?

      • sDee

        Sorry. I really meant to say I am so bouyed with hope that a few democrats are realizing what a hack Obama is and finally seeing the light of of free market capitalism championed by Bain Capital.

        I don’t know what got into me.

      That’s kinda a pun. “Lies” works well in more than one way.

  • warpmine

    My first thought was “that many”. The DemonRats are vile soulless creatures.

  • PVG

    DiFi’s up for re-election……ho hum.


      I know. It is just sick. There is no possible opposition at the moment. California suffers.

          For years I have been hopeful and vote for ANYONE ELSE on the ballot, especially one wo may seem feasible.

          One time she got whupped (that was by the Republican Huffington, Arianna’s ex) but then they found 14,000 uncounted ballots somewhere down in the valley. No kidding. This really happened.

          • Galatiansch2vs20

            Well, looks like there a couple of positive possibilities there- I have a sibling who voted for Hughes because of message, issues, and feasibility written about by a former Congressman. All things are possible with God! It would surely be a gracious blessing if He provided a conservative Senator for the people of California, my native soil (TN transplant).

            • MLCBLOG

              I know. We CAN dream. And pray. And hope. It could happen.

            • MLCBLOG

              I have never heard of Hughes. Have heard ads about Olly somebody who’s running against Die Fi. No offense but I think it would help if Hughes were more physically imposing. He looks a bit too nice (is he strong enough to make an impression, let alone win?)

              • Galatiansch2vs20

                Why would he need to look more physically imposing when he’d be running against an elderly lady?

                He’s younger than John, the other candidate who looked positive online and I gave links to… being younger is another reason my sibling voted for him in case he makes it as Senator and might stay in longer.

                But if physical appearance is very important to you, does John Boruff look better to you?


                As for Dan Hughes, he evidently made an impression on Chuck DeVore:


                I guess the ads you’ve seen were likely by the lady, Orly, who my sibling says was born in the former Soviet Union and has brought a series of lawsuits against Obama regarding Obama’s qualifications for being on the ballot. She doesn’t say that he could find anywhere how she stands on the ‘social’ issues.

                • MLCBLOG

                  Thank you for your info. I find it interesting that the only real vetting or selecting of a possible candidate against the shoe-in DiFi is occurring right here in my life. I do need to make a selection about whom I will vote for.

                  As for personal appearance, I could care less, but I think it can be a factor in winning elections.

                • Galatiansch2vs20

                  You’re welcome! Unfortunately, I think looks can be a big factor in this day and age with many people. Is he handsome, is she pretty? How many really look at/care about substance? A sad state of affairs.

                • MLCBLOG

                  It is human nature.

                  For me, this was part of my idealistic hippie thinking, that appearances should not matter, and I still agree and I think human nature when it is wise will agree that substance, the inner person, character are what really matters, but the truth is that in elections a physically presentable candidate often does better than one who is not.

  • kong1967

    Isn’t that what a party “whip” is supposed to do? They must have a really good one because they don’t like to step out of line much, lol.


    from the inimitable Lee Rodgers

    Fact-check. Mitt Romney’s career as a Bain Capital executive ended years ago. And while the Obama campaign decries job losses at businesses Bain couldn’t save, they ignore the presence of Jonathan Lavine, a long-time Bain executive and member of the board when the losses they decry actually occurred.
    Perhaps it’s because Mr. Lavine is one of Obama’s biggest campaign contributors. He’s been with Bain since 1993. Don’t learn THAT from the Obama campaign ads and hype, do you?



    Cool!! Let him continue to attack Bain. Backfiring big time…

  • Trust1TG

    Bain made millions for Romney – by using taxpayer money and loans – draining pension funds, running businesses into debt, reducing quality and jobs to make maximum profit (for the investors). Even the Salt Lake City Olympics which was a private enterprise got two billion taxpayer dollars. So, what’s not to like about Romney’s business tactics?

    Or his political strategies/tactics?

    Or his liberal policies?

    Or his continual lies?

    (sarcasm off)

  • JRD1

    Wonderful, now we are heeding the advise of crooks, self-avowed communists, and useful idiots!

    Who is John Galt!

    “Don’t think, we’ll think for you.”

    You have to twist your mind into a pretzel to defend Etch-a-sketch.

  • Sober_Thinking

    So are these the ones who are also benefitting mightily from accursed capitalism?

  • Nukeman60

    Should we call these people “The Magnificent Seven”? Or using the math of the ever excessively spending liberals, “The Dirty Dozen”?

    One thing’s for sure. I can’t get behind any group that includes California liberals like Feinstein. I’ve never heard anything come out of her mouth that didn’t fall immediately into the category of ‘crap’. Hmmm. One wonders if they aren’t building for a push to get Hillary on the ticket.

    • FreeManWalking

      I think their coming out of the closet (so to speak) in support of private equity and Bain in particular has more to do with Bain $$ $upport in their campaign coffers than their ideology.

      They are not in as good a position to bash them in public while privately taking in the dough as der 0b0 fuhrer.

  • anneinarkansas

    Add Joe Manchin of West Virginia today.

  • I can’t figure out why they are protending to stand against obama, there something more in it for them, OH! Thanks Right, Bain Capital, in the past has been their money dog.
    Ignor these democrats, they are obama lap dogs, they need to be defeated when they are up for re-elections come around. Remember if they have a (D) by their names they are oath breakers and subverts of the,
    The United States Constitution, The BIll Of Rights, and The Declaration Of Independence.,
    they only refer to these documents when their message serves their un-American agendas.

    Tea Party Patriot
    Impeach obama

    Never forget Obamacare: we couldn’t know what was in it until it was past.
    Never for get they are subverts.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    I don’t want to be the conspiracy theorist type, but color me confused when 7 democrats come out in support of an “evil corporation”? Something smells fishy.

    Some dummycrats are not dumb.
