I am trying to post but I keep seeing Flipper on my television. My man is on television more than Flo from the Progressive Insurance commercials. Flipper was on five different networks tonight playing damage control to his
little Bain problem.
Of course, as is to be expected, he blamed it all on O, and he charged him with running a dirty campaign which is beneath the dignity of the POTUS. (Funny, he wasn't so worried about the dignity of the office when his peeps were shouting him down while he was addressing the country. Or, for that matter, when Donald Trump and his birther friends were questioning his legitimacy as president.)
Now he wants an apology. I know one thing, the guy certainly has enough you know what to become president. Actually Mitt, it is you who should be apologizing to the American people for telling one lie after the other.
"Mitt Romney disputed reports that he worked for Bain Capital longer than he had publicly suggested, insisting Friday he had no role "whatsoever" in managing the company after February 1999 when he left to run the Winter Olympics. Public filings from the company suggest otherwise.
In consecutive interviews with all five television news networks, Romney accused President Barack Obama and his campaign of attacking him on his record at Bain Capital in order to "deflect attention" from Obama's "failed" economic record. And he called on Obama to apologize for the false attacks."There is absolutely no evidence that I had any role whatsoever in the management of Bain Capital after February 1999," Romney told ABC News' Jon Karl. "Why the president continues and his people continue to make these kinds of charges and try to turn this into something big is clear, I think, to the American people because the president's failed to do the job he was elected to do which was to get this economy turned around."
Asked by Karl about an Obama campaign aide's assertion that he may have committed a "felony" by leaving his name on Securities and Exchange Commission documents if he didn't work at Bain, Romney called the charge "ridiculous and disturbing" and "beneath the dignity of the president and his campaign."
Yes, but DID YOU POSSIBLY COMMIT A FELONY BY LEAVING YOUR NAME ON THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISION DOCUMENTS?
"On Thursday, the Boston Globe reported that Romney's name remained on several documents Bain had filed with the SEC, including a 2002 filing that described him as the firm's "sole stockholder, chairman of the board, chief executive officer and president."
Asked why his name remained on documents if he wasn't involved in the company, Romney told ABC that he had "retained ownership" until he and Bain officials could negotiate a departure and retirement package with the company. He told CBS News' Jan Crawford he had the "capacity" to return to Bain if he wanted after the Olympics but chose not to. He told Crawford he didn't "recall even coming back once" for Bain management meetings because he was running the Olympics "full time."
Oh, I see, "retained ownership". ("it depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is.") So that's not the same as working for the company? I guess when you are an owner you don't really "work" for the company; you just kind of get to collect the profits. Nice.
And didn't you and your partners agree that you would come back to the company in a different capacity? Yes, I think you did:
"I opined that it wouldn't make sense for me to come back to the company at the end of my tenture at SLOC as I had following my  campaign." They disagreed and came to a different arrangement" [Source]
Hmmm, and Bain's own press release said that "Myth" Romney (love that name) was a part-time employee back in 1999.
So why, do you ask, would Flipper make such a big deal of working for Bain from 1999 to 2002? Pssst, Field, it's that outsourcing thing. Oh, and this as well.
"(Americans) expected more from this president. He was the one that talked about a post-partisan presidency, changing the way politics works, changing the way Washington works. And I think people assumed he would make it better," Romney said. "But instead, with the kinds of attacks that he's been launching over the last several weeks, he's been making it worse and people recognize that."
Let me translate that for you:
I know that I, along with my surrogates, have spent millions of dollars mercilessly attacking my opponents throughout this elections cycle, but please do not attack me.
