The fading Preezy of the United Steezy decided to pull out what normally would be an October attack ad on Mitt Romney today and it’s already blowing up in his face.
“I think the ad is unfair,” Rattner said on “Morning Joe.” “Look, Mitt Romney made a mistake ever talking about the fact that he created 100,000 jobs. Bain Capital responsibility was not to create 100,000 jobs or some other number. It was to create profits for its investors, most of whom were pension funds and endowments and foundations. And it did it superbly well, acting within the rules, acting very responsibly, and was a leading firm. And so yeah, I do think to pick out an example of somebody who lost their job, unfortunately, this is part of capitalism, this is part of life, and I don’t think Bain Capital did anything they need to be embarrassed about.”
Rattner may want to check the brakes on his car after this.
