Critics of Mitt Romney's success at Bain Capital are calling him a vulture capitalist. My understanding of Bain Capital is that Romney acquired an interest in companies that were struggling financially and in many instances on the verge of bankruptcy. In order to return a struggling company to financial solvency, jobs were eliminated and expenses cut. In most instances Romney was successful.
Isn't that exactly what conservatives say they want in a president? Someone with business experience who will drastically cut spending and streamline government. Instead of supporting Romney, many in the Republican Party continue to criticize him and appear to be willing to vote for anyone but Romney. Some claim Romney is just too good to be true and cannot be trusted.
If Romney's success at Bain is a reason for conservatives not to vote, then I must be missing something.
