That’s what the creator of the comic book villain Bane said about the Democrat Party’s attempt to tie Mitt Romney to the Bat’s back breaking foe.
The left is trying to use the name Bane to remind voters of Mitt Romney’s time as a successful businessman with Bain Capital by equating him with Bane the super-villain. But in “The Dark Knight Rises,” Bane is more of a super strong community organizer than a venture capitalist:
“Bane” is the terrorist in the new movie who drives the caped crusader out of semi-retirement in the final Batman movie. Democrats, who believe they have Romney on the ropes over the president’s assault on his leadership at Bain Capital, said the comparisons are too rich to ignore.
“It has been observed that movies can reflect the national mood,” said Democratic advisor and former Clinton aide Christopher Lehane. “Whether it is spelled Bain and being put out by the Obama campaign or Bane and being out by Hollywood, the narratives are similar: a highly intelligent villain with offshore interests and a past both are seeking to cover up who had a powerful father and is set on pillaging society,” he added

Kerry Picket at the Washington Times writes:
The DC Comics character Bane is best known for releasing all of Gotham City’s criminals from Arkham Asuylum. Batman is pushed to the point of exhaustion as he rounds them all back up, but Bane is waiting for him and breaks Batman’s back. Bane brings forth chaos, anarchy, and lawlessness. Mitt Romney is not the first person to come to mind as far as the character of Bane is concerned. In fact, the chaos that Bane brings is reminiscent of Occupy Wall Street protests.
As I mentioned above, even the creator of Bane sees it as “overgrasping.”
