But for Republicans, the Cruelty's A Feature Not A Bug

In his "defense" of Mitt Romney's highly profitable (for him and his rich friends) gaming and looting and wrecking of the lives of so many people who work for a living while he was at Bain Capital, John McCain declares, "the free enterprise system can be cruel." Well, I guess that's it, then! He also implies that any efforts to meliorate the impacts of that cruelty or question the actual productivity of that looting would make you an evil commie, natch. “The only place in the world that I can recall where companies never failed was the old Soviet Union.”
