To continue the quote again since you must have missed the above. "to help them realize their potential value" When a farmer "harvests" his fields, the farm does not shut down and lay off workers. They replant for the next hopefully successful season of bounty. Companies fail every day. More often than not in the early years. The next big trouble spell is major expansion. The books are full of examples where expansion killed the goose. Bain helped through that period more often than not. 50% success in keeping these companies alive for 10 more years would be a success on their part. They had 70%+ rate. Quite good in the industry. Then their was al the other Bain associates like the one in the Caymens. Sankaty Advisors, LLC. Run by Jonathan Levine. Look at the parts of Bain and you will see that if any of these people were YOUR parents, you would be just like Mitt Romney or Jonathan Levine. Funny thing about Jonathan Levine. His father was involved with Ivan Boskey and Michael Milken in the heyday of small time Wall Street shenanigans. Now people like Obama/Biden financial advisor Jon Corzine gets away with no charges when he steals who knows how many BILLION Dollars from his investors. You forget that don't you?

Sankaty Advisors, LLC, the credit affiliate of Bain Capital, LLC, is a leading private manager of fixed income and credit instruments. With approximately $19.3 billion assets under management as of 7/1/2012, Sankaty invests in a wide variety of securities and investments, including leveraged loans, high-yield bonds, distressed/stressed debt, mezzanine debt, structured products and equities. https://www.sankaty.com/ How is what they do a bad thing? Are $19,300,000,000 worth of savvy investors wrong? Not quite as much as Harvard's endowment of $30,700,000,000.
Joe October 03, 2012 at 10:04 PM
Oh, and Harvard lost about $6,000,000,000 last year.
Joe October 03, 2012 at 10:06 PM
Upset? What gave you that idea Frank? Why ascribe feelings to me that are not relevant to the issue? Why make it personal?

All making a living and feeding families trying to do the best they can from a company broken off of Romney's Bain. Destroy these people and business and then what?
Joe October 03, 2012 at 10:15 PM
Fifa, can you explain to me exactly what you mean when you say "corporations that have bought our government lock stock and barrel" I hear that often but never got a coherent answer to the question.
Joe October 03, 2012 at 10:16 PM
"It's really funny hearing white Americans whining about "oppression"." Not long ago the same people were saying "It's really funny hearing black Americans whining about oppression."
Joe October 03, 2012 at 10:18 PM
If the security was sufficient in Benghazi for the Ambassador and his team who were slaughtered, why is it now too dangerous to send in Marines and FBI to secure the scene of the terrorist attack on America?
TJ October 03, 2012 at 10:24 PM
You think Obama's bragging about killing Bin Laden had anything to do with it? They sent a message that their not dead yet.
Steve October 03, 2012 at 10:51 PM
He got him. He deserves to brag. Bush had the opportunities to do it but he didn't have the balls to pull the trigger.
TJ October 03, 2012 at 10:53 PM
Bush didn't have him, Clinton did. Clinton said to let him go.
Steve October 03, 2012 at 11:06 PM
Bush had plenty of chances. He was the Saudis' patsy. http://www.newser.com/story/75700/bush-team-blew-chance-to-nab-osama.html
Balt Observer October 03, 2012 at 11:14 PM
LOL...it's hilarious when the libbie nutters just have to bring up Bush again.
TJ October 03, 2012 at 11:21 PM
They can't defend Obama so they trash Bush instead. SOS
Elisa October 03, 2012 at 11:38 PM
This is a charade. Only the Reds and Blues are allowed because they've been bought and paid for. Where is Gary Johnson and Jill Stein? I am fed up with this B.S. of he who has the most money wins. That means I have no party. I say that no matter who wins, we all lose...
Joe October 04, 2012 at 12:19 AM
Frank "How many companies has Heinz wrecked? How many jobs has Heinz offshored?" I guess I gave you more credit than I should have for being informed and thoughtful. http://www.heinz.com/our-company.aspx "Heinz is a $11.6 billion global company Heinz products enjoy #1 or #2 market share in more than 50 countries Heinz employs approximately 32,200 people around the globe"
Joe October 04, 2012 at 12:21 AM
Oops wrong link Frank http://www.heinz.com/heinz-global-websites.aspx
Joe October 04, 2012 at 12:23 AM
Steve seems intent on re arguing long past days because he can't argue FOR his man today. Simple deflection.
TJ October 04, 2012 at 12:24 AM
Hey Joe, Frank will only blame that on Bush too.
Joe October 04, 2012 at 12:26 AM
Great link to a Drudge Report type site with lots of news in one place. I can now use this source and you can't blast it like you do when you have no argument.
BadStatistics October 04, 2012 at 12:30 AM
@ Frank - FIFA and I already established I missed that. Again, apologies. @FIFA I agree on the reboot. But I think that the funny thing about American principles and ideals is that when we formulate our opinions in the present, we often still base them on the founding principles of our past (400 years ago). We couch our beliefs in terms of "is this what this country was set out to do" and that is really what I mean when i say "This country deserves better". This country does deserve better. We come from a long history of rebellion, rebuilding, and prosperity, and to sit around and let it all be washed away because we have to quibble over small issues like abortion, it is just such a shame. I know, some people think "Oh, well abortion is not a small issue! It's a HUGE issue!" well. CDC numbers from 2007 showed about 870,000 abortions in the United States. Less than 1 percent of the population of the United States. Way less than 1%. While trades of stocks on the NYSE number in the millions per day and potentially more with increases in technology and HFT. So what's the real issue? What is occurring more and is causing more damage? I would argue markets are doing more and often do more damage than the <1% of women getting abortions. But maybe that's just me.
Joe October 04, 2012 at 12:41 AM
In his element, from his heart, in his own words. http://dailycaller.com/2012/10/02/obama-speech-jeremiah-wright-new-orleans/#ixzz28CByI0qZ http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=JuzwIsNrXgQ
Joe October 04, 2012 at 12:43 AM
Obama got him? "He didn't do that, someone else made that happen."
TJ October 04, 2012 at 12:45 AM
Joe, Well said LOL
TJ October 04, 2012 at 12:53 AM
Joe, Don't you think if Obama even had a clue how to fix his mess, that he would have done it a year ago and this election would be a no brainer.
Joe October 04, 2012 at 02:44 AM
More uninformed bs from Frank. Frank, find me one link with the actual transcript of Obama's speech in 2007 IN FULL and not just the "official" transcript handed out by the Obama campaign. You will not find it. CNN now says they had the entire tape in 2007 and never played it all. Just about 4 minutes of 40. Catch up Frank.
Joe October 04, 2012 at 02:45 AM
Now Frank desperately wants to fight years old issues again as if there will be some other outcome. "You don't pick winners and losers, you just pick the losers."
Joe October 04, 2012 at 03:40 AM
Again Frank with your terribly ignorant habit of misquoting or actually putting words in my mouth when you just for the life of you cannot debate the subject? We know you lost the debate when you resort to such ignorance.
