“Mitt Romney grew up in Detroit. His father ran American Motors. Yet he was willing to let Detroit go bankrupt. It’s not that he’s a bad guy. I’m sure he grew up loving cars as much as I did. I just don’t think he understood—I just don’t think he understood what saving the automobile industry meant-to all of America. I think he saw it the Bain way. Balance sheets. Write-offs.
“Folks, the Bain way may bring your firm the highest profit. But it’s not the way to lead your country from its highest office.”
– Joe Biden, giving the speech of a lifetime
