Carville: Obama's Bain ad is legitimate

James Carville and Ari Fleischer debate both campaigns' dueling ads about Mitt Romney's record at Bain Capital.

    Anderson’s attempt to put the President down for taking money from a source and then criticizing that source misses the point that a politician should NOT be bought by a supporter and the President is entirely correct to accept a donation and feel free to correct a wrong done by that donor. Additionally, this is not about putting down an industry, the President clarified that venture capitalism is not the evil, the concept of running the country based on expertise in that area is ludicrous. The United States Government is not a profit making entity and it’s President is charged with maintaining and/or creating what is fair and lawful for its citizens. Mitt’s record in Mass. left them at 47th in the nation – his method of creating a new company employing thousands while destroying a company unemploying thousands doesn’t work for a populace regardless of the dollars made and Bain’s heartless habit of making millions and leaving employees helpless does not bode well for the country – what would it have taken to make 10 Million and give back 1 million for pensions? At what point is a check placed on greed and if that is his nature what would he do as leader of the free world? At what price would he sell us (or our resources or our military . . .?)

    Thank you James Carville!!!!! You speak so eloquently for the Democrats, I was enlightened to see you tonight debating with Ari Fleisher on AC360, Ari Fleisher, George Bush, and Dick Cheney destroyed this country when they had the keys to the White House, it is about time someone told Ari that tonight, he opens his mouth and spouts all the same garbage we heard from him before, he speaks over people, interrupts when someone is speaking, it was time someone told him that. Thank you for speaking up for us. Please keep telling them the truth every chance you get!
