    Default Say What????

    Where will this be reported?
    Probably just on that EVIL Fox News!!!!


    Oops!… Obama’s Top Bundler Jonathan Lavine Was In Charge of Bain During GST Steel Layoffs
    Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, July 18, 2012, 5:43 AM



    The Obama campaign blamed Governor Mitt Romney for the demise of GST Steel company in a video they released in May. The plant closed in 2001. Mitt left Bain in 1999.

    For some reason the Obama camp forgot to mention this…
    Obama’s top bundler Jonathan Lavine was in charge of Bain during the BST layoffs.
    Chuck Slowe reported:

    Blaming Governor Romney for any issues surrounding the failure of GST is wrong and it is a blatant lie. Mitt Romney had been long gone when the company started to fail and subsequently closed it doors. When are the President and his campaign hacks going to get the story correct? When are they going to get back to their economy and its dreadful condition? Mr. President, you can run but you cannot hide.

    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.

    And, Jonathan Lavine is not your average Obama Bain donor. Lavine is one of Barack Obama’s top bundlers.
    ABC reported:

    While Democrats assail presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital business practices, Republicans note that President Obama has not been bashful about accepting cash from Bain executives or other high-profile figures in the corporate buyout business…

    …One of Obama’s top campaign financiers – Jonathan Lavine – is also managing director at Bain, bundling between $100,000 and $200,000 in contributions for the 2012 Obama Victory Fund, according to estimates released by the Obama campaign. The president has also relied on other leading figures in the private equity sector as hosts for high-dollar fundraisers and as members of his Jobs Council.

    Maybe someday the liberal media will report on this.

    And NO ONE will say a word!!!!

    of course we won't....you would think from the narrative that Bain Capital was the ONLY investment firm the world has ever known, the ONLY one on Wall Street making a profit....but in typical progressive playbook they will do their best to demonize Bain, just waiting for them to start marching out some ex Staples or Sports Authority employee that lost their job because of outsourcing

    I looked briefly into this story, its looks like Romney and Lavine left Bain within a few months of each other, Romney was CEO and Lavine was on the board, yet all the blame all falls on Lavine? Pretty poor article in my opinion.
