Obama Bundler was at BAIN? During the LAYOFFS? :-)

Are you KIDDING ME???, after all the Obama ads on Romney and Bain (none of which are true, by the way) and I have that on excellent authority!...   Gateway Pundit blog's title is this:

"Obama’s Top Bundler Jonathan Lavine Was In Charge of Bain During GST Steel Layoffs"

Say it ain't SO!....except it IS.   With Video.  I'd have stolen the whole post, but I don't read Gateway Pundit and hate to steal from another blog, anyway!   You must click above on the line and see for yourself.

Think the MSM will pick THIS STORY UP? :-)   Let's see how the liberal commenters here scatter after reading this one.  Or what excuse for Obama they'll come up with!

Oh, THIS is sad (and typical)...the linked article includes this: "It turns out that Jonathan Lavine, current Obama bundler, was actually in charge, at Bain, during that period, when the layoffs occurred. Oops, that isn’t right, is it? Yes, that story is the one that needs to be reported on. Sorry Mr. President, your lies are just getting to be more than many of us are able to handle."
BUT, when I clicked on REPORTED, the article was gone.   that's getting more and more typical these days, too.

z (thanks, Elbro...what a story)

More proof they're both bought and paid for.

Nothing surprising here.

What goes around comes around, or something like that. In politics it seems you really need to do your homework before making stuff up. Obama's crowd doesn't seem as proficient as the Clintons were.

And (if this is true) is relevant how? Was he working for Obama at this time? No. BFD.

This Just In!
Investigators for an Arizona sheriff's volunteer posse have declared that President Barack Obama's birth certificate is definitely fraudulent.

Members of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's posse said in March that there was probable cause that Obama's long-form birth certificate released by the White House in April 2011 was a computer-generated forgery.

Now, Arpaio says investigators are positive it's fraudulent.

Mike Zullo, the posse's chief investigator, said numeric codes on certain parts of the birth certificate indicate that those parts weren't filled out, yet those sections asking for the race of Obama's father and his field of work or study were completed.

That being said, I do believe Obama is a fraud BUT there are too many RADICAL LIBERALS aka Progressives that don't or won't believe that such fraud could happen in this country. Our best shot at getting Obama out of the oval office is when we vote in November.
Let us not forget that we are dealing with a dumbed down electorate,

It's a big deal if you believe the Obama narrative

Wow, a trip well worth the cost to the Maricopa County taxpayers... you a fiscal responsibility fan, one and only?

Hee hee hee!

Excellent find!

Layoffs, outsourcing, there has been more of both under Obama than under any administration... Obama has held over 100 fundraisers since meeting with his "Jobs Council"... Oh, I almost forgot, Jeffrey Immelt heads that up and he's too busy making sure that the 169,000 out of 300,000 of G.E's jobs stay outsorced overseas... That all so they don't pay a dime in federal income tax...

brianduffy...yes, it is true. Kind of rough when the hero's proven to lie AND ignore his own peoples' transgressions, huh? Liberals are so used to letting lies fly this must be a blow.

One and Only...doesn't matter; it'll never go anywhere; the media'd have found this information out if they'd cared. Most people saw the last birth certificate presented to the public and many computer folks knew something was wrong...
such is life with the new Pravda-American media.

Ducky, what are you talking about?

The comments from libs just shows none of them cares about truth. amazing
And, if our libs can do this, imagine how the media lies for their guy?

Businesses exist to make a profit for their shareholders. Shareholders are people who have the funds to invest so they can make a profit. If you have a 401k, an IRA or a mutual fund, you are a shareholder. If you want to get a return on your money, you want that business to make the best decision to maximize your return.

This is not THAT complicated. Sometimes the best decision for a company is to pay people from other countries to do work that is too expensive to have done here.

That does not mean that company is not providing jobs and benefits to Americans. It actually means they are able to grow AND provide a better return for their investors.

Many successful companies that employ thousands of Americans are successful because they outsource. If they didn't, they would go OUT OF BUSINESS. Which means those Americans are out of jobs and the investors (pension funds, 401k's, IRA's, mutual funds) lose money.

Venture capital companies/investors take a HUGE risk. They lend money when no one else will. They are people that were willing to invest in facebook when Zuckerberg was still some unknown nerd. Of course they do that to make a profit. And with that profit, how many jobs are created simply because that rich investor risked their money?

I am SICK of this administration and their Occupy Wall Street sympathizers demonizing the people who take risks and who work hard to make a profit. Invariably the people complaining are the very ones that are getting something for nothing and then complaining they don't have the same amount of money of the people who work.

I will not apologize for making a decent living given that I started out making minimum wage, worked full time while attending college at night and went to work for years with chronic migraines because I never considered an alternative of sitting on my ass complaining about people having more money than I did.

Romney should not apologize either. I couldn't care less if he inherited some money from his father and I couldn't care less that he made a huge fortune by being involved in a venture capital company. Good for him. I wish EVERYONE success, but I sure as hell don't wish them success by claiming it's only fair for them to profit from someone else's hard work.

Z said...

Rita "Businesses exist to make a profit for their shareholders."

Boy, them's fightin' words to leftists...STAND BACK!!

But, honestly...excellent comment; (i had chronic migraines too and there was no WAY I could work; but sometimes I'd wake up with one in another city and find myself on corporate jets from business trips coming home and suffering with one and you want to DIE)

This is the new AMerica and liberals have brought it on..and you and ROmney are right; since when did success stink?

by the way, Romney did inherit and he and his siblings started a foundation in their dad's name and that money went there. ANother fact libs don't give a damn about.

Rita said...

Those damned evil rich people. People like Bill Cook. Worth billions he single-handedly restored two small towns in southern Indiana into prosperous communities while preserving two amazing historic hotels. Because of his investment in the restoration, French Lick and West Baden are now thriving and growing, adding other hotels, PGA golf courses that required the state to improve the roads and highways to get to nowhere Indiana. The towns were literally dying until Mr. Cook invested millions of dollars on repairing these amazing historical sites.

How dare he make BILLIONS and not "share the wealth" by being taxed out of his wealth so the government could have kept the citizens of Orange County on welfare rather than create hundreds of jobs.

I cannot fathom how someone cannot understand that rich people like Bill Cook share his wealth by creating opportunities for others to create wealth rather than hand them a handout to keep sitting around collecting a government handout.

Teach a man to FISH!

Teach a democrat to fish, he'll tax the fish.

And if they fail...which is actually winning....their goal is to put many people out of work.

Rita said...

Go get a JOB Libnut. If a venture capital fails the investor loses money on a company that already WOULD have failed.

See, you actually have to have some real life experience to understand that, but I wouldn't expect you to understand. YOU are not the one risking your money on a venture that might not make it.

Go waste your mamma's money reading DailyKos while complaining about those evil oil companies that create the plastic laptop case you use to show your incredible ignorance.

Dingbat.

Oh, wait, I forgot, you really aren't libidiot, you're Sybil claiming someone else is wasting your carbon credits.

Jan said...

Z..keep posting these great finds! Even if it seems that you are only preaching to the choir, you just never know...

At least it makes all of us even more determined to see someone else in the WH, before too much more damage is done to our country.


Ducky's here said...

Ducky..it didn't cost the taxpayers anything. From what I understand, it was paid for by private donors.

I could be wrong about that, but I don't think so.

No matter who paid for it, it won't do any good, anyway. There has been a lot of discovery regarding that, and other facts about him, but it is ridiculed, and discredited, and covered up..and you know it.

Uh-Oh Z - We're In Trouble

They Say/We Say said...

I posted several times what this is all about.
"Buffet Rule. Just another way to steal from seniors pension and retirement plans."
The Dems have said they are coming after 401ks and such.
If these evil corrupt Marxist are re-elected to the White House and Congress, they always tell what is about to happen to us, but the '94 Congress upset slowed them down. The 2,000 election almost put them on the ropes; they have had a long tireless comeback, this is a startling reality check for the 2,012 era in politics - like Obama told Putin, after November there will be more flexibility!
They see all that money in the retirement and pension plans-and they want their greedy little hands on it-all the while telling us we are the greedy ones.
Don't let your elderly parents and friends BE BLINDSIDED!

Z said...

Kid, that trillion dollar thing scared the @#(*$&@(#*&$ out of me.
Don't DO THAT! :-)
xxx !!

They Say/..that Putin thing should have scared everybody and WOULD HAVE had he been a Republican; the media'd have shred the president up for that..

Rita, you GO, GIRL!! :)

Jan, great comment.
I DO feel like we're all blogging to the choir, but I keep asking my readers to SEND THIS ON to friends who don't have time to read the blogs...they MUST know the truth SOMEHOW!

Honestly, hate or love Limbaugh, imagine if he'd never invented himself and no truth was EVER getting out..? He paved the way, thank GOD>

Elmers Brother said...

They win when they thrive and make money. You've never invested in jack shit have you?

Law and Order Teacher said...

Z,
The world of politicians is so incestuous. The insiders spend on each other to stay in power. Palin was right about crony capitalism. Most of the time we "purists" are confronted with two pretty bad choices. In this case, the difference is pretty stark.

BO has shown his real feelings about capitalism. As a matter of fact, I think if he spoke the word he would choke. At least Romney has worked in business while Obama doesn't quite understand what all the fuss is about when it comes to these entrepreneur people.

Why don't they just lie back and let the government take care of them. What suckers!

Z said...

Libmann, could you show us where Jan insulted anybody?! WHAT?

And, truly...if you knew Jan and how she researches, you'd be ashamed of yourself. I KNOW it's hard for you to hear facts other than from msnbc, but TRY.

Elbro, I think the words "WIN" and "SUCCESS" in America today are like a red flag to liberal bulls..they have to attack, it's unworthy of anyone to actually BEAT SOMEONE ELSE, MAKE MORE MONEY. oh, god..

L&O ..I think he has utter disdain for capitalism..right.

Z said...

Liberalmann, no the Republicans just hate the middle class, hate small business and had no other reason for blocking that bill.
GO FIGURE :-) (Sarc)

By the way, the Democrats are in charge of the senate and the senate killed it. SO??

Here's something "Some Republicans have said that the bill might have stood a better chance if, as they asserted was not the case, Republican members had been allowed make changes to it.

In another action related to small-business taxes, prior to July 12, the Senate dismissed by a 73-to-24 vote the Republican's own small-business tax-break bill after it had passed in the House last April. Democrats criticized the measure, proposed by Eric Cantor, the Republican House majority leader from Virginia, as being too greatly tilted toward the wealthy.

Under the terms of Cantor's Small Business Tax Cut Act, small-business owners could have cut taxes by 20 percent on up to half the amount of their payroll. But, according to Democrats, the bill didn't push as hard for new hires in the way that Obama's measure would have."

"push for new hires?" What was Obama going to do demand people hire if they got tax breaks?

MAN.

Kid said...

They Say is exactly right. Your 401's are not off limits to the evil communist/fascist democrats. Nothing is.

The libtards are in for a real shock. And they'll be in for a bigger shock if they're bitching to me about it in the supermarket parking lot.

Law and Order Teacher said...

Z,
The Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) is a test that all students are required to pass before obtaining a diploma. Now let's look at a question on that test. There are short answer question that score two points.

So, it asks, If the the government wanted to encourage businesses to hire more employees would it raise or lower taxes? Well the answer is obvious.

It further asks what are the effects on employment? Well again, the answer is obvious.

My question is this, if you expect a 10th grader to understand the consequences of taxes on businesses why don't politicians in the Dem party get it?

I didn't make this up. I teach this test to my students.

Z said...

Kid "And they'll be in for a bigger shock if they're bitching to me about it in the supermarket parking lot."
Love that one!

L&O....that is UNBELIEVABLE..You're so right! The KIDS are supposed to learn the obvious but the Dems don't get it? :-)

Rita said...

LO, I hope your kids are actually LEARNING the right answer not just answering it correctly for a test. Someone sure didn't get that lesson in school , in fact too many of them are running/ruining our country right now.

Law and Order Teacher said...

Z,
The students do understand the basic economic concepts because I teach them. It's also interesting that they have trouble understanding one concept no matter how hard I try to make them understand. That concept?

How the government can spend money it doesn't have. These are kids who work minimum wage jobs. They get that they can't buy something if they don't have the money to pay for it. Proof once again, that politicians don't live in the real world.

They function in an environment in which they have a never ending money supply. It's called the American taxpayer. Shameless.

beamish said...

This looks bad, but still doesn't move Romney to the right of Obama (or Bernie Sanders, for that matter)
