Trying to figure out a way to finish the religion series without alienating anyone, so it'll be another day.
Until then, a brief bit about Romney's experience as a private equity manager and as a venture capitalist. Today, he derided the failed government investment in Solyndra as an example of "public equity", which for starters gives the loan program (which to remind everyone was started under Bush) that vague whiff of socialism that comes with the word "public". More importantly, it allows Romney to conflate private equity, which is mostly what he did at Bain acquiring companies in leveraged buyouts, and venture capital, which is what the Solyndra loan was most similar to. Venture capital is rich guys giving money to smart guys. Private equity is rich guys buying smart guys' companies and doing whatever is most profitable for the rich guys, whether it be saving the company or gutting it. Since Romney hope to wrap himself in his Bain experience to make him look like a job creator, it would beneficial to him if people confused private equity and venture capital.
Here's a good Op-Ed that explores the distinction, as well as other aspects of Romney's record.
