No honor among thieves. Wing-nuts defend Romney when it comes to job destruction.

January 9, 2012

Some of the crazy right-wingers in the GOP would rather lose the White House than elect Mitt Romney, in spite of his claim of being conservative. He’s just not conservative enough for the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.

But when Newt Gingrich came out with a blistering video on the job destruction practices of Bain Capital when Mitt ran it, they suddenly close ranks behind Mitt.

Firing workers is what they like about Romney.

Politico reports:

Conservative blogger John Hawkins spends the vast majority of a post Monday morning criticizing Romney, but adds that Bain Capital’s work was productive.

“On balance, Romney’s experience at Bain Capital should be perceived as an asset… Bain Capital did more good than harm,” Hawkins writes at RightWingNews.

Of course, this didn’t stop Hawkins from excoriating Romney as a “mediocre, unpopular governor in Massachussetts [whose] signature piece of legislation, Romneycare, was an enormous failure” and “supported TARP.”
