Mitt Romney has been trying to convince voters that he retired from Bain in 1999 instead of 2002 (as the evidence suggests) in order to evade responsibility for some particularly brutal plant closings during that time.
“He took a leave of absence, and in fact, Candy, he ended up not going back at all and retired retroactively to February of 1999 as a result.” — Romney senior advisor Ed Gillespie in interview with CNN’s Candy Crowley
It’s been suggested that Mitt Romney has, on occasion, lied,
But prepare for the greatest deceptive flip-flop ever tried.
In a brazen ruse for which the world his campaign should lambaste,
Mitt Romney is now attempting to Etch-a-Sketch the past.
If Romney now loses, that would for the country be tragic:
He won’t have the chance to practice his time-changing magic.
Imagine what we can do if the line between reality and fantasy are blurred!
The Bush recession? That never occurred.
And it turns out Mitt Romney retroactively won in 2008,
So we’ll need the beginning of his presidency to pre-date.
Here’s the Ed Gillespie interview.
