Mitt Romney's Meaningless Retirement Date

There are 26 comments on the www.theatlantic.com story from Jul 16, 2012, titled Mitt Romney's Meaningless Retirement Date. In it, www.theatlantic.com reports that:

The dispute over when exactly Mitt Romney left Bain Capital took another confusing turn this weekend, when campaign adviser Ed Gillespie seemed to introduce an element of time travel into the controversy. Romney's camp insists he departed the private equity firm in 1999, when he left to salvage the Salt Lake City Olympics. But the Boston Globe reported last week that Bain's SEC filings and Romney's personal disclosure forms showed he was technically in charge through 2002

Can't have it both ways, Mitt. Either the security exchange filings were illegal or you're lying now.

Yea lets talk about what Romney's role was at Bain Capital in 1999 instead of today's economy.

I saw that commercial about the kansas steel company,

It was a very bad time in general for the steel industry in the U.S. A 2003 report from the U.S. International Trade Commission found that between 1999 and 2003,“31 steel companies producing products subject to the safeguard measures [including tariffs on foreign imports] have filed for bankruptcy protection.

Bain capital has a job, that job is to make money for the investors, the steel company was on the ropes, if Bain or someone else had not stepped in and tried to make a little money the company probably would have gone under sooner, it was a very old steel company with a lot of outdated equipment that needed to be replaced.

Even the Obama mouthpiece David Axelrod does not believe that, on CNN he said ” that the campaign is “not suggesting that based on what we know that he’s done anything illegal.”

If we are going to talk about old irrevivent issues like that we would be as well served talking about Oboama's birth certificate or something like that.

His tax returns for 1999-2003 can tell the tale, IS MITT LYING out of the side of his mouth, or not?

SHOW US THE RECORD MITT. Quit stalling and equivocating.

Robert, Romney made his money sacking US workers and sending jobs overseas. Yes that makes him a great pirate-banker; but not my idea of 'BUSINESS EXPERIENCE" that qualifies a US President.

You are right about the tariffs. They are a joke, then as now.

We need (temporary) import tariffs on all manufactured imports.
Then and now.

AND, "Very old" US Corporations need to be upgraded; not dismantled, and sent to the orient with US workers thrown away as outdated.

Yes, it means litle to you if your guy lies as he breathes.

I'd like to 'retire now' but file my papers in three or fouryears; might that happen with me?

How about YOU?
Retire now, but stay on the payroll until Christmas 2016?

Let us all ask our bosses.

For those of you who are Obama fans.."Retirement" is what working people do at the end of their careers. "Careers" are the way accomplished Americans support their families...when they don't live off their neighbors. "Work" is when you actually accomplish something rather than just showing up on friday for your govt food stamps or your welfare check.

I hope this helps you understand the real world where most of us live. Don't feel bad. Obama obviously doesn't understand either.

It is an equity frim, 80% of their investments did well and the ones that did not may have gone anyway, the title was good Meaningless Retirement Date, it is meaningless, he did not run those company and it is meaningless what happened because I care about our situation today and tomorrow not something that happened to a company a decade ago which was not run by the candidate anyway. It is just a distraction.

We need reasonable tarrif laws, all we need is fair treatment overseas you can protect youself into buying american, it does not work all it does is start trade wars and start depressions.

It is not up to you or the government to do that, some companies are going to fail and no controlling how they run their business is going to save it. It is up to the people who pay for it.

What you suggest is the government controlling the means of production, that is socialism and I don't care for it.

Bankruptcy law not Obama should decide the fate of a failing company.

How many 'foreign bank accounts" does Barry Soetoro have ?
Why won't Barry Soetoro release his college transcripts ?
Why does Barry Soetoro sell GUNS to illegal aliens and drug cartels in Mexico ?
Why has Barry Soetoro added 100,000 new regulations in his 1 term, does Barry really HATE America that much ?
Why won't Barry Soetoro uphold our LAWS ?
Why does Barry Soetoro cater more to the illegal alien, than he does to the American people ?
(I think he hates Americans)
Why does Barry Soetoro bow down to the U.N. and the Muslim brotherhood, yet Barry sues our states for trying to protect its citizens ?

Why is it that illegal aliens are running free through our country by the millions, while Barry spends out more than 113 billion a year in govt. aid to them ?(treason) life in prison -or- execution !

Barry Soetoro is trying to destroy our Second Amendment .

This is why Barry is in bed with the Muslin brotherhood and the U.N..
Anything to disarm and destroy us .....

Gee, I wonder if these liberal Democrats will try and block the military from voting like they did in the 2010 midterms ?
