Apparently the movie, which he refers to as “The Dark Knight Lights Up,” is an intricate conspiracy to make Mitt Romney look
“Have you heard this new movie, the Batman movie, what is it, The Dark Knight Lights Up or whatever the name is. That’s right, Dark Knight Rises. Lights Up, same thing. Do you know the name of the villain in this movie? Bane. The villain in The Dark Knight Rises is named Bane, B-a-n-e.”
“What is the name of the venture capital firm that Romney ran and around which there’s now this make-believe controversy? Bain.”
“The movie has been in the works for a long time. The release date’s been known, summer 2012 for a long time. Do you think that it is accidental that the name of the really vicious fire-breathing four-eyed whatever it is villain in this movie is named Bain?”
The “make believe” controversy he’s referring to is the very real possibility that Mitt Romney as manager of Bain Capital contributed to the recession by outsourcing jobs that equated billions of dollars for the declining economy.
It’s also funny because Bane was created in January of 1993 by Chuck Dixon, Graham Nolan, and Doug Moench NOT a 31-year-old Obama. But how strategically pointless would that have been?
I know when I see Tom Hardy as Bane I think of fire-breathing venture capital firms that stole jobs, but I thought I was the only one.
