I write about the Obama anti-Bain ad today. Of course, Obama attacked private equity at the very same time he was raising money from it. In his new book, “Land of Promise,” Michael Lind quotes satirist Finley Peter Dunne on TR’s effort to distinguish between good and bad trusts. In Irish dialect, Dunne described TR’s attitude thusly: “The trusts are heejous monsthers built up th’inlightened intherprise iv th’ men that have done so much to advance progress in our beloved country. On wan hand I wud stamp thim undher fut; on th’other hand not so fast.”
