The Democrats have reached an all-new low, as they are now comparing Bane, Batman’s sworn enemy in the latest “The Dark Night Rises” movie, to Mitt Romney. You can probably guess why. Because Romney’s investment work with Bain Capital — and, of course, we’ve all heard it a gazillion times before, Bain was a job killer.
I’m assuming Batman is an indication of Obama because the bat hero wears all black, and the President is, well, of the African-American race?
It’s one thing to laud some political blubber spewed by George Clooney or Alec Baldwin, but taking a fictional character from Hollywood and claiming it somehow relates to an “evil capitalist job-killer” is beyond a stretch.
Paul Bedard at The Washington Examiner explains:
“Bane” is the terrorist in the new movie who drives the caped crusader out of semi-retirement in the final Batman movie. Democrats, who believe they have Romney on the ropes over the president’s assault on his leadership at Bain Capital, said the comparisons are too rich to ignore.
“It has been observed that movies can reflect the national mood,” asserted Democratic advisor Christopher Lehane. “Whether it is spelled Bain and being put out by the Obama campaign or Bane and being out by Hollywood, the narratives are similar: a highly intelligent villain with offshore interests and a past both are seeking to cover up who had a powerful father and is set on pillaging society.”
I’m not a Comic-book guru, but I’m pretty sure Bane was a part of the Batman story well before Romney was in the running.
It’s another desperate ploy to use the liberal-allied Hollywood fantasy-world as a maneuver to prevent the inevitable un-seating of Barack Obama.
