For a guy who spends so much time badmouthing Bain, Obama sure loves him their outsourcing money.
As noted at NRO, left wing whackos are holding Lavine responsible for what happened at Bain when Lavine was at Bain but they are holding Romney responsible for what happened when Romney was not running Bain.
Obama appointed Jeff Zients to be Deputy Director of OMB. He is a Bain alumnus.
Obama has no problem taking cash from Bain principals.
The same SEC form from February 2001 that lists Mitt Romney as “sole shareholder, sole director, Chief Executive Officer and President of Bain Capital … the controlling person of Bain Capital” also lists over a dozen other managing directors of Bain Capital, Inc. — all of whom were undoubtedly more active than Romney was during this period. And President Obama took money from many of them.
Take Joshua Bekenstein. Bekenstein has been a managing director of Bain Capital since 1986. In 2008, he signed Barack Obama a $4,600 check. In 2004, he gave a $50,000 donation to the Democratic National Committee. That’s outsourcing money, plain and simple. And Obama was happy to take it.
Or how about Stephen Pagliuca? Last year, he cut a $35,800 check to Barack Obama’s Victory Fund. Then he cut another $30,800 check to the DNC. And another $30,800 check to the DCCC. Jonathan Lavine and Mark Nunnelly have both maxed out to Obama already, as well as to the DNC. Lavin was a bundler for Obama, and raised over $100,000 for him. Michael Krupka gave Obama $4,600 in 2008.
I am thinking that Obama is a Kenyan word meaning “hypocrite.”
