During Romney's tenure as governor, Massachusetts' job growth was bested by every state in the nation except three, including Hurricane Katrina-devastated Louisiana. As CEO of Bain Capital, Romney profited as five of the companies under his firm's direction went bankrupt, and thousands of workers lost their jobs. One particularly brutal round of firings came back to haunt Romney during his failed 1994 Senate campaign, when laid-off workers protested his candidacy.

You're confusing me being amused by the Irony of Romney taking about job "creation" with being scared of him?

Trust me Id be just as amused if it was a video of Palin talking about the values of higher education.

But the article doesn't say that, this is what it says:

I can't stand Romney btw, and if he gets the nomination we'll be doomed. He's a smarmy flip flopper. Pass.
