Mitt Romney's stay at Bain Capital questioned
We need more answers
Gov. Mitt Romney is the sole stockholder, president and chairman of the board, and yet he “left” Bain Capital in 1999 [“Bain filing fuels fight over honesty, outsourcing,” page one, July 13]. How do you leave an organization if you are the sole owner? Doesn’t that sound strange? Why doesn’t this man ever talk straight?
Maybe trying to please tea party people and trying to be straight are incompatible? Tea party people are not conservative — conservative only means go forward slowly, it doesn’t mean go back to the Dark Ages! Real conservatives want to proceed slowly, but go forward anyway. What passes for conservative today is reactionary.
For someone like Romney to be elected the president today would be an unimaginable disaster for this country and for the world. We have no choice but to go with the president.
