re: #62 Killgore Trout
The period between 1999 and 2002 is one thing, with its own attendant set of issues.
But, as others have pointed out, there is plenty to investigate about Bain before that time, and exactly what Romney was up to. For example, the question of how his IRA exploded in value to many millions of dollars.
Mitt Romney is the one who decided to run for President not on his record as Governor of MA - a record he tries to bury, not on his experience leading a congregation of worshippers, and barely on even being a grandfather.
Rather, Romney’s reason, according to his campaign, for him being President is based on one thing - his brilliant business acumen as witnessed by his co-founding of Bain Capital and its subsequent super-star success.
Thus it is hardly victimizing Romney to scrutinize Bain and his experience there, using a microscope if needed.
