NRO Senior Editor Jay Nordlinger: Reagan 'Welcomed Wetbacks'

Even Fox News isn’t having it anymore:

And by allowing these questions about his involvement to dominate the news, he has now put in jeopardy the entire underpinning of this campaign: that his Bain experience has prepared him to fix the economy.

It’s not too late for Romney to save himself. He can produce the minutes of the Bain Board of Directors Meetings and show that he really wasn’t part of the decision making at the company after February 1999.

Instead, Romney continues to stonewall on Bain as he has stonewalled on releasing his tax returns. And if the last week taught him anything, it should have taught him that stonewalling for the next 114 days isn’t a strategy that will work.

One problem with the advice given above. The minutes and tax returns will make everything worse for Romney, further undermine his story, that’s the only plausible reason they haven’t been released at this point.
