Team O Says Mitt May Be A ‘Felon’ For ‘Lying’ About His Departure From Bain
How Low Will This Guy Stoop?
First, Romney was a corporate raider. Then, he was a heartless capitalist who shipped jobs overseas. And, now? Now Mitt Romney just may be a “felon,” for “lying to the SEC” about when he really left Bain Capital.
Bain Capital. The nation’s first black president, Barack Hussein Obama, the historical figure who was going to transform America (not to mention, “stop the oceans’ rise” and “heal the planet”) has been reduced to dwelling on Bain Capital in his bid for reelection. The candidate for the presidency who made such lofty promises of “Hope and Change” has had nearly four years to deliver that hope and change, and, in lieu of a track record (he actually has a track record; it’s just not one on which he chooses to run), this boy who would be king has crashed to earth in spectacular fashion. And – did I mention – has chosen to base his legitimacy for reelection on Mitt Romney’s time at Bain Capital?
O’s deputy campaign manager, Stephanie Cutter, suggested this morning that Romney may be a criminal on a conference call with reporters about a Boston Globe report, which claims that Romney stayed at Bain Capital three years past the time he says he left.
Cutter said that there were two ways to interpret the story. The worst of which, she naturally jumped on first: Romney was “misrepresenting his position” at Bain to the Securities and Exchange Commission, “which is a felony,” making Mitt a potential criminal. (Gotta love desperate liberals.)
Or, he was “misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American people. If that’s the case, if he was lying to the American people, that’s a real character and trust issue,” Cutter added, although I’m sure she’ been praying for the former over the latter. (On a bright note, Cutter admitting that “lying to the American people” is a “real character and trust issue” may come in handy later in the campaign.)
Bob Bauer, head-lawyer for the O reelection campaign and a former White House counsel, also implied that Romney could be in legal trouble, saying that that SEC documents are “very carefully scrutinized by lawyers because of the very severe consequences that follow from making statements to the SEC that aren’t correct.”
“Of particular consequence woud be a misrepresentation that involved a controlling person,” Bauer said, and “Romney is the controlling person.” No word on whether Bauer salivated as he spoke.
While I’m not in a position to speak with authority as to whether or not Romney was involved with Bain Capital beyond the time that he has claimed – that will be for Mitt to address – I am qualified to state my opinion of the desperation of Team Obama. Were this failed president to have accomplished just half of the promises he made as a candidate, would he now be reduced to digging for dirt of the worst kind – believing that the only way he can win – is by ignoring his own track record and destroying that of his opponent?
This is not only the stuff of Chicago politics, America; it is the stuff of “transformative” president who never “transformed.” It is the stuff of a spectacular failure, reduced to the politics of personal destruction.
And we wonder why more good people don’t seek the presidency.
