#KingOfTheDole: How Romney Got a Federal Bailout to Save Bain by Threatening the FDIC

This musical parody explores the early days of Mitt Romney’s reign over Bain Capital and the federal bailout money that kept the corporation from collapsing.

Romney doled out lavish executive bonuses as Bain was failing, then threatened the FDIC. This parody covers Rolling Stone’s explosive disclosures (9/13/2012) with supporting FDIC documents. See for references and a link to FDIC documents. This parody is based upon the song “King of the Road,” words and music by Roger Miller. The production is on-the-fly, but the story behind it is of major consequence for the upcoming US election and the nation’s future.
