Obama's Tipping Point: Bain Capital

President Obama has an advantage over Romney in the polls in a majority of categories, from foreign policy to health care, but he’s behind the GOP candidate on what is arguably the most crucial one: the economy. If he plays his cards right in the fall, he can reverse the current poll numbers, argues Michael Tomasky. Specifically, he has to use the Bain Capital card to prove that Romney worked for the 1 percent. Sometimes Romney helped workers, other times he hurt them—but nearly every time, the Bain CEO and his wealthy investors came out on top. Here’s a debate that, if argued right, could turn the middle class off Romney—and be Obama’s tipping point on the economy.
