Wait, look over there. Romney has misrepresented when he left Bain Capital, so says the Boston Globe.
This is not surprising, knowing that the liberal attack media in Boston is in the tank for Obama, and doing his re-election campaign’s dirty bidding. Hell… the entire week I was there, news coverage was saturated with the Romney “cut a kid’s hair 50 years ago” story.
But wait, look again. It’s not over yet. Time to spin, burn rubber, make noise, and keep diverting attention away form Obama’s poor job performance.
Mitt Romney may be a felon. So says Stephanie Cutter, Obama’s deputy campaign manager.
This also is not surprising, because they are becoming more and more desperate as the summer wears on. Obama’s camp is running scared because they are spending far more money than Romney and not raising it as fast.
With this lag in time and money, Romney is pretty much tied with the President in most credible polls and this is not good for a sitting President. Thus, it is causing the Obama camp to come out with some of its dirtiest truth twisting yet, stuff that should be used later on in the campaign as October Surprise material. And with each stab in the dark, comes more failure to sway people from believing what they know is true about this Administration.
Even the WaPo Fact Checker is calling BS on this latest attempt at smoke and mirrors. They thought they had debunked this story, but like a silly dream, it keeps replaying because this is all Obama has to use, in order hold on to his job. They fear Romney will put a stop to their wholesale deception of the American people, and the world. They are in way over their head and they know it.
The truth may very well be, Romney bailed for the Olympics and held the stock until he could divest of it. His focus was cleaning up a huge mess that someone had talked him into fixing. And by all accounts, he did fix them. Throw the guy into a mess, and he’ll do his damnedest to fix it. This is not the image of Mitt Romney, Obama wants us to have.
ADDENDUM—Bain’s statement on the latest inanity from the Left:
“Mitt Romney left Bain Capital in February 1999 to run the Olympics and has had absolutely no involvement with the management or investment activities of the firm or with any of its portfolio companies since the day of his departure. Due to the sudden nature of Mr. Romney’s departure, he remained the sole stockholder for a time while formal ownership was being documented and transferred to the group of partners who took over management of the firm in 1999. Accordingly, Mr. Romney was reported in various capacities on SEC filings during this period.”
If they can fool enough people again, they have every intention of running more of our economy into the ground. We really don’t have much choice in this one.
