#KingOfTheDole: How Romney Got a Federal Bailout to Save Bain by Threatening the FDIC

Thursday, 25 October 2012 11:56 By David Scheim, SpeakOut | Video

Media

Romney doled out lavish executive bonuses as Bain was failing, then threatened the FDIC. This parody covers Rolling Stone's explosive disclosures (9/13/2012) with supporting FDIC documents. See www.campaignwatch.org for references and a link to FDIC documents. This parody is based upon the song "King of the Road," words and music by Roger Miller. The production is on-the-fly, but the story behind it is of major consequence for the upcoming US election and the nation's future.
