The president’s attempts to trash Republican rival Mitt Romney’s record at Bain Capital have produced some interesting responses from Obama supporters. The print version of TIME magazine highlights several of them:

“If you look at the totality of Bain Capital’s record, they have done a lot to support businesses, to grow businesses.” — Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker

“I think [Obama’s Bain ads] are very disappointing.” — Former DNC chairman and Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell

“I don’t think there’s anything Bain Capital did that they need to be embarrassed about.” — Former Obama car czar Steve Rattner

“I think Bain Capital was a very successful business. I think they got a good return for their investors. That is what they were supposed to do.” — Virginia Senator Mark Warner
