The Obama campaign, and Barack Obama himself, have made Mitt Romney's time at Bain Capital a target of their attacks. In a recent Washington Post column, Marc Thiessen has shown that Obama might want to reconsider throwing rocks in his extremely vulnerable crystalline palace. From the story:
"...if Romney’s record in private equity is fair game, then so is Obama’s record in public equity — and that record is not pretty. Since taking office, Obama has invested billions of taxpayer dollars in private businesses, including as part of his stimulus spending bill. Many of those investments have turned out to be unmitigated disasters — leaving in their wake bankruptcies, layoffs, criminal investigations and taxpayers on the hook for billions."
