Men-Bain in the campaign:
But until his run for governor — and even before that campaign was underway in earnest, when he needed to prove sustained connections to Massachusetts in order to ward off a ballot challenge — Romney had characterized his departure from Bain Capital more as a “leave of absence” in which he would be a “part-timer,” and not as an absolute separation from the thriving business he built and solely owned. . .
In addition, Bloomberg news service reported Friday, Romney is named as one of two managing members of Bain Capital Investors LLC in annual reports filed in Massachusetts as late as 2002, “adding a new corporate entity to a growing number of Bain-related investments and funds that list the Republican presidential candidate as controlling the company three years after he said he left it.”
On the day after Romney took over the Winter Olympics, the Boston Herald reported that “Romney said he will stay on as a part-timer with Bain, providing input on investment and key personnel decisions.”
Well, the Masters of the Universe can do anything. Shape-shifting, for example. For the voters of Massachusetts, Mitt did live and love and Ski-Doo in the Cradle of Liberty, where he forged iron ties to his life’s work, Bain Capital. He merely stepped outside Boston Commons for a minute or two to fiddle with the Utah Olympics because the bigamy rubes wouldn’t know a merchandizing contract from Kryptonite under-pants.
Now, for the voters of America, Mitt never had nothing to do no way José with the fetus-burning job-frackers at that crag full of vampires, Bain Self-Inflicted Airstrike, LLC. Why can’t anyone get that? Bitchez! It’s simple. Between 1999 and 2002, Bain Capital paid Mitt $100,000 a year. And here’s why: “Mr. Romney has not had any active role with any Bain Capital entity and has not been involved in the operations of any Bain Capital entity in any way.” OK? There. That’s it. Makes sense. So here we are.
