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.

Footnote:
(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.
