When even Rush Limbaugh buys into the “criticising Bain is criticizing capitalism” meme, we have lost as a party. There is a huge difference between using government powers to impose value judgments (a la Obama) and making value judgments in evaluating a candidate’s background.
We’ve discovered a way to lose the general election — tie Bain Capital to our legs and go swimming.
Update: Good column from Bill Kristol, From Bain to Main. We are so screwed, we have allowed the Romney campaign and its supporters — and some well-meaning but misguided others — to turn us into the party of Bain.
