What do AMC Entertainment, Burger King, Burlington Coat Factory, Clear Channel Communications, Domino Pizza, Dunkin Donuts, Guitar Center, Sports Authority, Staples, Toys R Us and Warner Music Group have in common? Free market investments from Bain Capital made these companies successful.

What do Eastern Energy, Ener 1, Beacon Power, Abound Solar, Amonix Solar, Spectra Watt and Solyndra have in common? All of these bankrupted companies received government stimulus money and were also Obama campaign donors.

The choice is clear. Do you want a businessman who has generated billions or a socialist who has wasted trillions?
