Romney’s campaign issued a statement Thursday from Bain that said 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.”
J.W. Verrett, an attorney and assistant professor in economics, also said in an email response to these issues that the original Globe report appeared to “be confused” about the SEC filings.
He noted they refer to “Bain Capital VI,” which he described as an investment separate from Bain Capital itself.
“Saying that Governor Romney was the CEO of Bain Capital VI is like saying that I am the CEO of my retirement account … it’s a silly bit of legalese and it doesn’t also mean I am CEO of all the companies in which I invest,” he said in an email.
As has come to be the case with Obama, this is another Goebbels worthy aspirant in a long chain of ways of living for this president.
I had always thought that with Obama an abject failure at nearly every measurable level (he got Osama when he had the chance) this would be Jackson-Adams in taste and style, but Obama and his people are proving that they really are not the same as other politicians. They are taking the smear, and the lie and melding them into KGB DIZINFORMAYZIYA LEVEL PERFECTION…
many of whom were euchred, remain euchred and will re-vote to ensure the economic, political and WELL BEING decline of the USA.
That this can be done owes its possibility to the underlying belief that values not progressive are somehow evil, and the ‘good guys’ are just trying to do right.
