Skip to comments.Democrats Now Claiming Romney Lied About His Bain Departure, Facts Disagree
Posted on 07/12/2012 7:15:59 PM PDT by tsowellfan
With millions out of work, the American growth and jobs pictures dimming, the cost of healthcare skyrocketing, and the national debt spiraling out of control, Democrats are exhibiting some rather strange priorities. On a policy level, they're fixated on raising taxes on nearly one million small businesses (while blocking votes on their own party's proposals) in order to fuel class divisions. On a political level, they're obsessed with baselessly speculating about Mitt Romney's foreign investments (while blithely ignoring their own) and lying about his non-existent role in Bain Capital's supposed "outsourcing" (even amidst revelations that $29 billion in Obama "stimulus" funds were shipped overseas). Their latest conspiracy theory is that Romney stayed on as a member of Bain's active leadership for several years beyond 1999, the year he's often asserted that he left the company to go save the Salt Lake City Olympics. Liberals and the media -- but I repeat myself -- are buzzing about a new Boston Globe story that suggests that Romney hasn't been honest about his personal employment timeline:

Gov. Sununu took Juan “I don’t trust muslims” Williams to the wood shed tonight on Hannity about this....
If I were Romney, I would box up all Bain information, go in front of the people and say....”Here it is. When you turn over all your college records, social security records, draft records and original birth certificate, you can have them.” Play the same game.
I said this before, if Obama and his people feel that Romney has committed a felony, he owes it to the people to have Romney arrested and tried.
If provides all his Bain info then they pick through it and find some nit picky discrepancy to harp on. Instead stay on offense and only go on defense for substantive charges not noise like this.
When you're explainin' you ain't campaignin'
when will someone demand that the Obama's disclose the records on THIS???
Anyone have any idea?
Sure, he walked away from a management interest in Bain during that period, but what did he do with his previous investments in Bain ~ should be easy to address, besides that's where we can make some moral judgments about this guy.
Best way to get there is go to Google.com (or some other search engine of your ideological preference) ~ look for FREEREPUBLIC OBAMA LAW LICENSE
That should pop up enough material to satisfy everyone.
Who did Obama invest with Tony Resko?
I am really enjoying that obama and his supporters are wasting their energy on Romney’s record at Bain. From what I can catch, most of the country really doesn’t understand Bain or really care. Therefore the more time the obama team spends on this, is like sending money and energy into a vacuum.
Rezko doesn’t run a brokerage. He’s a Roma. He runs highly sophisticated pigeon drop operations.
He's got time to bow out ~ if he's the sort of anti-prolifer i think he is.
That's the issue here ~ you'll never hear about that problem from the Democrats. They also like dead babies.
I chose not to dip my spear in the blood of the innocent.
Then, there's real morality that says you are what you buy and you can't escape that.
So, it's really, really, really important to now where Mitt put his money. It is remarkably unimportant how he managed it ~ whether from afar, negligently, or with minute by minute interest.
Ownership is a continuum.
We can take it from there.
Failure to address that question is what is hurting him.
What I did not say was that none of your buddies in the field of investment would care.
What I also didn't say, and apparently you would find laughable, is that I might judge a candidate on how he invests his money.
Here's the guy running for public office and he wants my vote but let's say he puts his money into a high turnover business like a brothel for the benefits of the cash flow.
I'm not going to ignore that when i get to the voting booth, and might even decide to help out his opponent who invested only in booster seats for children.
If your most recent excuse for Romney is that he's too rich and has too much money to have the slightest idea of where his investments went, then he's a ditz, and you are misrepresenting what we know about investors.
Those guys know down to the penny where ever cent is ~ in broad categories that probably aren't as broad as you imagine. The Bain guys INVEST IN LEADERS in the field ~ and try to turn them into THE LEADER.
If one of their investments is picking up aborted children for recycling (into what?) they will know that.
At the moment an awful lot of Mittbots are telling us they are amoral riff raff of the sort we usually avoid if we can. But you want our votes for your boy.
Time to tell all ~ BTW, he's going before the press now. What are the odds one of those jerks is going to ask him where his money is. Like they all have fact checkers and they've found my question is a hot one on Google.com.
