Just under three weeks into his term as governor, Romney brought a $1.5 million check to Konarka, a well-connected solar startup in Lowell, Mass., itching to buy a new pilot production assembly line.
Four other companies also scored renewable energy subsidy awards that same day, including Evergreen Solar, which won $2.5 million for a major expansion and to cover operating losses as it tried  Read More...

Where are the jobs for the rest of us Mitt the genius businessman? Aren't businesses the fools who got us into this mess in the first place? Sorry, we don't rate, only businesses rate.

What kind of sweetheart deal can the people of America expect from you Romney like that you gave your son? Can we expect you to give something like that to our sons? Or, will you just have another war to hand to our boys when you get into power?

Can you answer that question Romney??????????????

Tagg is simply unemployable and if his daddy didn't give him a job he would have none. This is understandable, the kid grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth and probably doesn't chew his own food.

The real issue here is that Mitt who has a ton of cash used the donations of republicans to pay his son - for essentially playing the "working game."

Romney's campaign was almost completely self-financed. Additionally, he did not accept a single dime for salary while governor.

non-story....NEXT!

Might not have taken a salary, but he was pretty expensive for MA nonetheless:

From Wikipedia - "In 2006, his last year as governor, Romney spent all or part of 212 days out of state, laying the foundation for his anticipated presidential campaign.[182] The cost of the Governor's security detail for out-of-state trips increased from $63,874 in fiscal year 2005 to a cost of $103,365 in the first 11 months of fiscal year 2006. Romney's use of state troopers for security during his campaign trips was criticized by former Governor Michael Dukakis, who never traveled with state troopers during his 1988 presidential run."

I couldn't agree more - non story. Now, lets concentrate on all the great things that Mitt did for healthcare in Mass. I think if we all took a harder, longer look at Romneycare, we would all understand Mittens and his contorted positions with greater clarity. ObamaCare...oops, meant to say RomneyCare was a real game changer during his term as Gov. Lets talk about that.

“It's a symbol not of success, but of failure. It's also a symbol of a serious conflict of interest,” the GOP presidential candidate told reporters at the defunct Freemont, Calif., business.

here is the problem. The main stream media lets him state this as fact. The government is in a race with China and other countries to assit these countries and we are being left behind. but the more important point is this was started under a republican president and not to blame bush but to just put it out there that this is necessary if we are going to compete and yes some will fail. But using this as a way to hammer the president is misguided but it works for the ill informed.

Resisting the tyranny of ObamaCare
01:08 PM on 06/01/2012
This is trivial gossip of the worst sort. Without telling your readers that Tagg was the wrap up man on a lot of issues for the governorship, that he was the advance man for the next governor, or that he continued to actually do daily work, you throw out the $19,000 figure paid out of 10 months as if is suspect in some way? Shame! The real issue here is that more than a half billion of taxpayer dollars was badly "invested" in the kind of enterprise Obama considers a viable business deal and 1100 people thrown out of work. Mutiply that by nearly $100 billion in such rascally deals and you have Economics 101: What NOT to do pretty well pegged. The true story is that Obama is a disaster on anything to do with money and we cannot afford another four years of him.
01:18 PM on 06/01/2012
Geez, have you not read the info on Bain Capital? You're complaining about Obama without so much as even a hint of what your guy did. Here's some facts for you:

Worldwide Grinding Systems went belly up after Romney invested in it. The company not only lost 750 jobs, but the federal government had to come in to bail out its pension fund, while Romney walked away with millions in profits. 22 percent of the companies in which Romney invested wound up either in bankruptcy or shutting their doors entirely.

You're right, what NOT to do is pretty well pegged. Don't vote for Romney, or we'll see this multiplied across the US with none of us ending up with jobs.

If you want to blame somebody for no jobs, talk to President Bill Clinton. He signed NAFTA & permanent MFN for China, plus allowed the mergers of huge oil corporations.
01:28 PM on 06/01/2012
As usual chicagurl.... You are always just stepping off the short bus, before you write. Bain Capital had some good investments and some not so good....BUT.... They USED THEIR MONEY to prop up theses company's at a risk.... Obama used OUR money to prop up his friends who owned Solyndra, (that records have shown were already on the downside).... He then set it up, that while they went into bankruptcy...all his friends got their money out and "We the People" got shafted!! Please try and read and get a little knowledge before you write... These are all facts, that ALL the news stations have shown, how you missed it I don't know!

You are aware, of course, that Romney was himself involved in two similar deals, investing taxpayer money into 2 failed enterprises when he was governor of MA?

These types of deals are nothing new.
This Solyndra thing is not unique.
