When Mitt Romney left New Hampshire earlier this week, he said the attacks on him as a corporate buyout specialist had not worked. So why is Romney now running ads on his private-sector experience and saying things like ” losing a job is devastating “? Because he knows his notion of free enterprise will not fly with the American people. Romney’s effort to explain away his private-sector career as a “predatory paper shuffler,” as one Republican put it, has been tried before, and it has failed. Romney suggests that to attack his record is an assault on “free enterprise.” But as we continue to recover from a great recession caused in large measure by Wall Street greed and recklessness, America can’t afford to elect a corporate raider who thinks outsourcing jobs, stripping down companies, and bankrupting them for profit represents the best of the free enterprise system. The truth is, it’s time for Romney to come clean. As one of his former colleagues has said, their work at Bain Capital had nothing to do with job creation—it was about creating wealth for partners and investors. Romney was fabulously successful at that. He should just be honest about what “that” is.
