Oops!… Obama’s Top Bundler Jonathan Lavine Was In Charge of Bain During GST Steel Layoffs

Obama and top campaign bundler Jonathan Lavine from Bain Capital.

The Obama campaign blamed Governor Mitt Romney for the demise of GST Steel company in a video they released in May. The plant closed in 2001. Mitt left Bain in 1999.

For some reason the Obama camp forgot to mention this
Obama’s top bundler Jonathan Lavine was in charge of Bain during the BST layoffs.
Chuck Slowe reported:

Blaming Governor Romney for any issues surrounding the failure of GST is wrong and it is a blatant lie. Mitt Romney had been long gone when the company started to fail and subsequently closed it doors. When are the President and his campaign hacks going to get the story correct? When are they going to get back to their economy and its dreadful condition? Mr. President, you can run but you cannot hide.

It turns out that Jonathan Lavine, current Obama bundler, was actually in charge, at Bain, during that period, when the layoffs occurred. Oops, that isn’t right, is it? Yes, that story is the one that needs to be reported on. Sorry Mr. President, your lies are just getting to be more than many of us are able to handle.

And, Jonathan Lavine is not your average Obama Bain donor. Lavine is one of Barack Obama’s top bundlers.
ABC reported:

While Democrats assail presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital business practices, Republicans note that President Obama has not been bashful about accepting cash from Bain executives or other high-profile figures in the corporate buyout business…

…One of Obama’s top campaign financiers – Jonathan Lavine – is also managing director at Bain, bundling between $100,000 and $200,000 in contributions for the 2012 Obama Victory Fund, according to estimates released by the Obama campaign. The president has also relied on other leading figures in the private equity sector as hosts for high-dollar fundraisers and as members of his Jobs Council.

Maybe someday the liberal media will report on this.

    And if this had the least bit of truth to it, then it would be splashed ALL OVER the evening news! Oh wait…

    We’re still talking about Bain. Bain is 1999

    The 2nd Great Depression is now. Being managed by a NEW “New Deal” democrat.

    Romney needs to talk about the broken economy and how he’s going to fix it.

    The cleanup begins in January.

    Now the question is will the Romney campaign get the message out. One good speech isn’t going to cut it. If they can’t hit O hard everyday and rock him back on his heels and let him play defense then I am not very confident. Offense is the best defense.

    Wow. Just….wow. Who are they gonna wheel out next? Jon Corzine?

    I am wondering if there is anything about our president that is genuine.

    Any suggestions?

    Barry’s budget director worked for Bain, for Christ sakes! Having been employed by Bain has always been a resume enhancement, for republicans AND democrats: it’s a good compay and has an 80% success rate in turning failing businesses around. Which is exactly what this country needs now…the desperate one is trying to use Bain to tarnish Rommney because it demonstrates how woefully unprepared and incompetent our little amateur president really is: and how very qualified a problem-solver Romney has been & will be.

  • snap boy

    Mr. Lavine doesn’t have the ethical fortitude to stand up and publicly admit he was in charge at the time of GST’s failure; he allows another person to be publicly lambasted for his actions. Not exactly a mensch.

    Hopefully, the Romney camp will bring this little tid bit to the forefront. Time for Romney to start rolling up his sleeves and come out swinging. Enough of this “timid” stuff. As they say in boxing……”Let’s get it on!”

    This fact shows Romney played a role in creating Obama ….through employees and wealth of Bain…It does not let Romney off the hook. It puts him on the hook…..and Karl Rove also helped to create Obama as admitted that his own deputy was a classmate of Obama who helped Obama get elected Editor of Harvard Law Review….> http://youtu.be/iqsTlmx3VEM

    What has made Obama such an abomination is that he is a Frankenstein creation of the worst elements within Both parties. That is why all his document fraud continues to be protected. It is how Obama achieves his agenda through so much media cooperation and feighned opposition from Republicans. Obama has lots of secret support within the leadership positions of the Republican party.

    I am glad to see Romney shake free from the RINOism and start to fight for what is right….but we still have a lot of work to do…making sure Romney’s new found voice isn’t the old Bush family ” read my lip ” service. Romney will need to clear the air , come clean, and out some Obama collaborators in his party to reassure the American people this era of corruption is over.

    Sigh. We’re in for another 4 years of watching racists and the uber-wealthy rage. Haha!

    Obama is the Anti Christ. He’s the closest thing on earth we’ve experienced at least in this under 50 crowd post WWII as obviously he doesn’t compare the world’s dead worst.. yet. But given the chance and our full support I ‘m sure he could set that record all for himself if let run loose.

    He’s a classic megalomaniac who’s just about ready for a public meltdown. It’s coming, we can all see it, he’s unhinged and you know he’s not sober either. That’s why he looks 70 in his face.

    any liberal Obama supporters care to comment on this.

    So anything Romney touches falls apart when he departs? Fvck that guy.

  • PCsurfer

    Oh, look at that – it was really an Odumbo bundler who was in charge of Bain during the GST layoffs & outsourcing! So, the Odumbo-the-clown camp is lieing again. They spew so many lies I can’t keep track anymore. I can’t wait until this fraud is defeated so bad in November that the Democrat party doesn’t recover for 40 yrs!

  • drbobnm

    not only his policy guys are a bunch of keystone cops, it looks like his reelection team is a gaggle of bunglers. How this little fact got missed in the GST steel anti-Romney smear development is beyond comprehension. Does anybody associated with the Chosen One know what they are doing? My best guess is no.

  • Mark Carlton

    Did you say Obama’s top bundler or bungler? If it’s the latter, he’s doing a bang-up job.
