    It appears that it was a Democrat that first made the Bane/Romney connection. From the Washington Examiner:

    “’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.
    As the Friday release date has neared, liberal blogs were the first to connect Batman’s toughest foe with Romney’s firm.”
    And this from Chuck Dixon:

    Chuck Dixon gave an exclusive interview to the nationally syndicated radio program “Schnitt Show” yesterday, telling the host that efforts to connect Romney to Bane are foolish.
    As for the mainstream media’s attempt to usurp the character, Dixon said, “It’s ridiculous. Obviously Bane was not created as an attack on Mitt Romney. We never heard of Romney twenty years ago.” Also, within the context of the movie, Dixon said the comparison between Bane and Romney does not make sense. “My understanding is that Bane is more of an Occupy Wall Street type. Romney is more like Bruce Wayne.”
