Character Assassinating Mittens

2/17/12 Romney on Hannity
I think again that the president takes his philosophical leanings in this regard, not from those who are ardent believers in various faiths but instead from those who would like America to be more secular. And I’m not sure which is worse, him listening to Reverend Wright or him saying that we must be a less Christian nation.”
Today:
“I have been disappointed with the president’s campaign to date which is focused on character assassination,” said Romney. “I just think that we’re wiser to talk about the issues of the day, what we do to get America working again, talk about our respective records.”
So what, the Obama campaign suddenly has brought up Mormonism? Talked about Mitt's grandpa and his idea about one man one woman? Brought up magic underware, did they? Nope, here's what it was that made Mittens little heart palpitate.
“Obviously, his efforts to look at my work at Bain is to try to characterize me in a way that isn’t accurate,” said Romney. “My effort at Bain Capital, as you know, was, in every case, designed to make the enterprises we invested in more successful, to grow them.”
Apparently pointing out that their design was to make money regardless of the outcome and shown by their record is "character assassination."
“There’s this fiction that some have that somehow you can be highly successful by stripping assets from enterprise and walking away with lots of money and killing the enterprise. There may be some people who know how to do that. I sure don’t,
He supposedly went to business school at Harvard and there's this fiction in regard to corporate raiders that he doesn't know how to do? You are supposed to believe that Harvard hands out coloring books or something whenever various methods are brought up so that later you can deny knowing about a "fiction" because you were busy staying in the lines? I've got to tell Mitt that there sure the hell are a lot of things about him that could accurately be used to assassinate whatever character it is he claims he's got beyond "It is my turn to be President." I don't know how the hell the words "character" and "Mitt Romney" get into the same sentence without the key words "lack of."

Now cut to that promotional picture of the young Mitt and his fellow raiders preening with hundred dollar bills projecting everywhere from their suits.
