Remember how Mitt Romney claimed that he didn't run Bain Capital from 1999 to 2002, but then it turned out he did?
Back in 2002 when he was running for Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney and his aides had no problem admitting he retained his position as CEO of Bain Capital after 1999. Press articles from the time describe how Mr. Romney was on a "leave of absence" after 1999 and had not fully cut ties with the private equity firm.
You've got to hand it to him. A lesser politician might eventually flip-flop on his never-don't-flip-flop agenda. But Romney is committed. As proof, watch out for his surprise bid as a liberal candidate for the presidency of France. He'll be announcing it underwater, having evolved gills in a 180-degree turn from his historically mammalian respiratory system.
This will all happen in 1994. With Romney, anything's possible!
