Really, Ed Gillespie? So you’re saying Mitt Romney bears no RESPONSIBILITY whatsoever for Bain-owned companies that went OUTSOURCED jobs and companies that went BANKRUPT, even though Mitt Romney was legally responsible for its action from 1999-2002?

Let’s hear what Americans have to say about “Retroactively Retired.”

No matter how much the Romney campaign tries to SPIN his tenure at Bain, the SEC filings with his signature states otherwise.

    When your candidate is Mitt Romney, you get angry. When you get angry, you go blow off steam. When you go blow off steam, accidents happen. When accidents happen, you get an eye patch. When you get an eye patch, people think you’re tough. When people think you’re tough, people want to see how tough. And when people want to see how tough, you wake up in a roadside ditch. Don’t wake up in a roadside ditch! Get rid of Mitt Romney and upgrade to President Barack Obama.

    Team Obama keeps tweaking Romney on “retroactively” retiring

    Source: USA Today

    The latest tweak by Team Obama is a web video of man-on-the-street interviews asking people what they think it means to “retroactively retire,” the phraseology that Romney campaign strategist Ed Gillespie used to explain why Romney was listed as the sole owner of Bain Capital in company filings during a period when the former Massachusetts governor said he was not active with the private equity firm.

    The first couple of interviewees seem puzzled by the term. A third man suggests that perhaps it means you’re retired bit working. And then finally, the fourth interviewee, zeros in on the Team Obama message.

    “He retired himself before something terrible he did happened,” the fourth interviewee says. “You know something bad happens and you say, ‘Oh, that shouldn’t have happened. Yeah, I’m going to go back and say I wasn’t there.'”

    The video then goes on to list two Bain companies that outsourced jobs overseas, and three that went bankrupt between 1999-2001. Romney has said took a leave of absence in February 1999 to run the Salt Lake City Olympics, but he never returned to the firm.
