Mitt Romney on Attacks: ‘There’s Nothing Wrong With Being Associated With Bain Capital, of Course’

By

Mitt Romney appeared on CNN this evening in an attempt to silence some of the debate over what really happened during his time at Bain Capital, and why documents named him as Bain's CEO in 1999 after he had left to head the 2002 Winter Olympics. "I had no role whatsoever in the management of Bain Capital after February of 1999," Romney said. "There's a difference between being a shareholder and someone who is running an entity." Over and over, Romney repeated the February 1999 line, trying to drill home that he was merely "associated" with the firm — not that there's anything wrong with that, he reminds us.
