Bain Capital became front and center at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., Wednesday, with three speakers knocking the private equity firm that GOP nominee Mitt Romney founded for costing them their jobs.

First up was Randy Johnson, who has needled Romney has far back as 1994 when he ran for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts, the same year Johnson was laid off.

"I want to tell you about Mitt Romney's record of cutting jobs. Mitt Romney once said -- quote -- 'I like being able to fire people,'" Johnson said, quoting a remark Romney made in January about keeping the competitiveness of the health care industry, rather than workers.

"I don't think Mitt Romney is a bad man. I don't fault him for the fact that some companies win and some companies lose. That's a fact of life," he said. "What I fault him for is making money without a moral compass."

Cindy Hewitt, interviewed by The Huffington Post about layoffs at the plant where she worked, echoed Johnson's sentiment about Romney Wednesday, along with David Foster, another employee laid-off by a Bain-controlled company. All three speakers acknowledged that business had "winners and losers" or some variation -- perhaps to stave off sounding too "anti-business" -- but proceeded to attack Bain's model of capitalism.   POST
