1 percent poster child: Romney photo Bain of his existence

From the “It was a good idea at the time” file comes this photo from the Boston Globe of Mitt Romney during his Bain Capital days. Look at all that cash Romney and the fellas are flashing. I’m sure there’s a rap song that would perfectly compliment it. Something about Benjamins or “making it rain” or something.

Folks are demonstrating all over the country — the world, now — under the “Occupy Wall Street” banner. They are protesting the excesses of corporations and the yawning economic divide, among a slew of other things. They might be out of work, burdened with debt or fearful that playing by the rules no longer means anything. The 99 percent are enraged by the 1 percent — and this photo is emblematic of why.
