The Obama campaign, including their allies in the media, have tried their best to make Mitt Romney’s time at turnaround investment company Bain Capital a negative for him, portraying him as a heartless, greedy capitalist. (1)

The IBD’s Michael Ramirez parries those attacks with one simple cartoon that compare Romney’s record as a CEO to Obama’s as president:

As they say, ’nuff said.

And be sure to check out Michael’s archive at IBD; he’s the best conservative political cartoonist in the business these days and one of the best, ever.

(1) Sadly, some Republicans helped give them ammunition. And let’s not speak of Obama’s corporate donors and the rewards they get; that would be racist.

    Ramirez’s cartoons are regularly featured in “Weekly Standard” and are enjoyable, each being refreshing to read.

    A point of clarification. Bain is not a turnaround investment company.

    It is a broad spectrum investment company that had a venture capital bent early on, some LBO’s and turnarounds later, and is more of a growth capital investor today.

    The distinction is relevant.
