Have you been waiting for the 28 minute long “Mitt Romney is a corporate raider” documentary? Wait no more! You can watch it online here.
Don’t feel like spending a half an hour of your life watching an attack piece? Luckily, you can get a synopsis here.
We are introduced, briefly, to Mitt Romney, his Harvard education, and his love for “stripping American businesses of assets” and “killing jobs.” First stop on the road to ruin: Marianna, Fla. Here we learn about a local manufacturer of laundry equipment that got sold to Bain Capital. From there, everything went to crap — production sped up, quality went down, pay slashed, stress mounted. In the end, we’re told Romney “upended the company” and made big profits while “leaving behind a trail of wreckage.”
But then Romney turned his sights on Kaybee Toys and destroyed it in similar fashion. This ruined the lives of children. We know this because we see a child, staring into a television flicker, as the sounds of news reports of Kaybee’s demise fill the background. The look on the child’s face says it all: “Oh no. The Kaybee Toys chain is gone, and it was a brand with which I really identified.”
Well, thank goodness that question has finally been answered. I always wondered why Kaybee toys disappeared from my local mall.
UPDATE: Finally, an embeddable version.
