KTH: Campaign money from private equity

Is President Obama trying to have it both ways? He’s attacking Mitt Romney for working at Bain Capital while accepting money raised by the head of another private equity firm. Anderson Cooper is Keeping Them Honest.

    The GOP has to come up with a better strategy. Blaming Obama's failed policies won't work because the average American family understands that the bottom line doesn't change overnight. It can take years to correct financial mistakes. That's true for the average family and also for a country. The public is to smart to buy into the GOP spin doctors blaming the current administration for the dangerous and perilous position the previous administration put us in. Especially when the GOP has blocked every manoeuvre that has been put on the table, then call it a failed policy. Its true that Obama knew what he was getting into, but to be fair, the proper assumption would be the GOP would support sound decisions. But that never happened. The y blame Obama for W's spending vast amounts money.

    In fairness, Mitt Romney is the one running for President making all these promises of "job creation"... not this CEO, who is offering support to President Obama. In fact, that is perhaps why this individual wants to support him; so the failure of past layoffs can be prevented.
