Here`s why the “vulture capitalist” attacks on Mitt Romney by Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry are very effective. They are putting a face on the red line that we show you on this program all the time.
Last night, Ed introduced some new “faces” on his income disparity chart and decided to call it the “vulture chart.”
Here’s the transcript:
SCHULTZ: Have you ever seen vultures eat? Seriously, I mean, they are the meanest son of a gun in the wild. I mean, when they see a carcass and want to go eat on it, they just eat and they hang around and they don`t leave until they are finished, and they get everything they possibly want, and then they leave. Sound familiar? And they feed on these folks down here on the blue line.
Republicans are worried about Gingrich and other candidates attacking Romney over vulture capitalism because basically it`s the truth. You will never convince me, Americans, that Mitt Romney was the head of Bain Capital because he wanted to create as many jobs as he possibly could – like the President of the United States.
I believe that every time Mitt Romney went into a company, he had one thing in mind and that was making a boatload of money and he didn`t care who he ran over. It`s a culture. We have seen this on the campaign trail.
He likes to fire people. Where does that come from? That`s who he is.
When you talk about the truth, behind Republican policies – Republicans, you know what they do? They get nervous because they know it`s the truth. They don`t want anybody knowing that this is one of their virtues.
