Mitt Romney Gets Rolling Stoned: Former Music Mag Dedicates Latest Edition to Bashing Romney

The state-run media springs into action…
The former music magazine known as Rolling Stone published three hit pieces on Mitt Romney this week. And, the cover story was written by unhinged lib Matt Tiabbi famously known for spitting on the corpse of Andrew Breitbart after he passed away earlier this year.

Here’s the cover:

This came in the email:
In the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone, Matt Taibbi looks at how Mitt Romney and Bain Capital staged an epic wealth grab, destroyed jobs – and stuck others with the bill.

“What most voters don’t know is the way Mitt Romney actually made his fortune: by borrowing vast sums of money that other people were forced to pay back,” Taibbi writes in the cover story. “This is the plain, stark reality that has somehow eluded America’s top political journalists for two consecutive presidential campaigns: Mitt Romney is one of the greatest and most irresponsible debt creators of all time. In the past few decades, in fact, Romney has piled more debt onto more unsuspecting companies, written more gigantic checks that other people have to cover, than perhaps all but a handful of people on planet Earth.”

Also in the magazine, on newsstands Friday, Tim Dickinson looks at the federal bailout that saved Romney, including the government documents that show that the legend crafted by Romney is basically a lie.

Dickinson writes: “The federal records, obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, reveal that Romney’s initial rescue attempt at Bain & Company was actually a disaster – leaving the firm so financially strapped that it had ‘no value as a going concern.’ Even worse, the federal bailout ultimately engineered by Romney screwed the FDIC – the bank insurance system backed by taxpayers – out of at least $10 million. And in an added insult, Romney rewarded top executives at Bain with hefty bonuses at the very moment that he was demanding his handout from the feds.”
