“I LIke Being Able To Fire People” – Mitt Romney

Agreed, MItt Romney’s quote was taken out of context but the entire quote and his explanation of what he meant tells volumes about what Romney thinks and believes. He damn well enjoys firing people because he did a lot of it at Bain Capital. And as Charlie Pierce pointed out on the Stephanie Miller Show this morning, who talks about firing one’s health insurance company? The average person talks about switching companies, not firing one and hiring another. The Romney quote, in and out of context, accurately depicts his corporate mindset. The man can’t relate to people other than as potential profit or loss centers.
