Mitt Romney spent Friday on a media blitz, attacking Obama for trying to make an issue out of Romney’s involvement with Bain Capital after February 1999. How did he do in defusing the Obama campaign’s accusations?
As you can see, not well. In fact, Forbes magazine, not exactly a hotbed of liberalism, has a list of 35 questions that Mitt Romney should answer before we can put this matter to rest:
If you don’t want to watch the video, there’s a list of the questions here. They are good questions indeed.
UPDATE: We now have evidence that Romney committed perjury — from Romney himself. Romney signed a federal financial disclosure form claiming that he was not involved “in any way” with Bain after February 1999. But in 2002, when he was trying to prove residency in Mass. so he could run for governor, he claimed that there was a “transition period” and that he spent “a good deal of time” traveling back to Mass. even going to board meetings. Lying either time would be perjury — a felony — so which time did he lie, because both cannot be true.
UPDATE 2: Even Fox News says that Mitt Romney has royally screwed up and “only has himself to blame”.
