Out of Touch

Tagg Romney recently tweeted this:

Mitt Romney pirateHar! Just a fun-lovin’, booty-stealin’ marauder! I’m sure these guys would get a real kick out of it:

    A couple of decades before Bain Capital, another corporate raider, Jimmy Ling, took over J&L Steel and destroyed the mine that was the main support of my hometown. It’s been 35 years and the town has never recovered. These guys could have been my neighbors. The only difference is, we took it out of the ground up in the country and they turned it into metal down in the city. Well, there’s another difference: In those days, business reporters wrote about “leveraging” and “debt,” but today, it’s assumed that these crooks are operating on blue sky and BS. Nobody even bothers to mention it.
