Romney says that NH results indicate that attacks on his record at Bain failed

Mitt Romney has a new retort to those who question his record at Bain: that his victory in New Hampshire proves that nobody cares about them.

“These attacks from the Speaker and Rick Perry, you know, I expect that to come when people find their campaigns are having some difficulty, they look for a new course — I don’t think it worked,” Romney told Fox News. “I think the evidence from New Hampshire last night, where both the Speaker and Rick Perry were both in single digits, suggest this kind of attack on free enterprise is simply not gaining traction for them.”

Romney, who was asked if he planned to push back more on Bain, said these attacks mean he can talk about Bain often — and, he added, “that’s a good thing.”

1. Because American workers LOVE that Bain advises businesses to OUTSOURCE their jobs:

http://www.bain.com/consulting-services/information-technology/it-capability-sourcing.aspx


IT Capability Sourcing

We help clients ensure that IT offshoring and outsourcing decisions are based on business strategy and help set up deal structures, capability networks and sourcing agreements to deliver enduring results–lower costs now and flexibility for the future.

Strategic sourcing is the process by which organizations determine how to access the right IT and business capability at the right cost. Sourcing must be managed effectively across the four key dimensions of management, resources, services and business processes.

Outsourcing of IT or business processes is just one option of sourcing strategies, often unleashing tremendous value. With strategic sourcing, Bain can enable clients to ensure sourcing decisions are based on business strategy and to help set up sourcing agreements to deliver value now and flexibility for the future.

8. Hm. I don't see the words "creating jobs" anywhere in there.

The key words:
"Unleashing tremendous value" and "delivering value" = transferring the wealth of the company into the pockets of investors.

2. There wasn't enough time before the New Hampshire primary for it to sink in

Romney doesn't have one good explanation regarding his career with Bain. There is no good way to spin making money off of other's misery.

3. That's what I thought when I just saw this OP

I'm heartened to hear that he seems to relish the opportunity to talk about his work with Bain.

12. Mitt is the living embodiment of the 1%

No matter how he dresses, no matter how many rifles he brandishes, no matter how much he tries to accuse Obama of being "out of touch" with the 99% (which is, in itself, a sign of Mitt being "out of touch" himself), I have a hard time believing that a majority of people (mostly the 99%) are going to accept him as POTUS unless he's able to somehow convince them that he will be better for them than another 4 years of Obama. I'm still waiting to see the evidence for that. It sounds like he might be a good "manager" but his "management" has mostly involved throwing people out of work (and him and the 1% getting rich off of it) and he is basically disavowing the one "good" policy he championed as Massachusetts Governor.

7. Bingo!

He knows that his record is toxic. Gotta wait to see how Mitt's history goes over
in South Carolina where people lost their jobs thanx to Bain.

Newt is going for Mitt's throat with his ads there.

10. New Hampshire has very low unemployment.

Seasonally adjusted for Nov. 2011 -- 5.2%

http://www.nh.gov/nhes/elmi/pdfzip/econstat/laus/archive/publication/LAUS2011.pdf

Job loss is not as sensitive an issue in New Hampshire as it is in some other states.

Now, South Carolina has a bit of a problem when it comes to unemployment, so Romney may be singing a different tune after that primary.

South Carolina’s Unemployment Rate Drops for November
Posted on December 20, 2011 by mcraft

The state’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell to 9.9 percent in November, an unprecedented 0.6 percent drop from last month’s 10.5 percent rate, according to the S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce.
