He’s a venture capitalist whose company laid off hundreds of workers from Del Monte Foods in closing down a California plant, fired hundreds more from Birdseye Foods and even more from Solo Cups.
So who is the venture capitalist that I speak of? Mitt Romney? No. Try Obama campaign co-chair Federico Pena, a former partner at Vestar Capital.
Like Mitt at Bain Capital Mr. Pena actually saved other workers’ livelihoods, kept the companies in operation and, through those accomplishments, continues to generate tax revenue for the United States. Just like Bain Capital. Although you won't hear any of THIS from the mainstream media or from the Obama campaign. But they do plan on honoring this man for his accomplishments. Why not honor Mitt then?
