The HuffPo is now leading with this…….
So, I’ll try to explain to the very, very, simple minded dolts who we call the left.
Prior to 1999 Mitt Romney owned and operated Bain Capital. I’ll repeat for the slow…… Prior to 1999 Mitt Romney owned and operated Bain Capital. In 1999, Romney was asked to run the Olympics.
So, Mitt Romney, doing his duty for his country, took a ‘leave of absence’ from Bain to become the CEO of the Salt Lake City Olympic Committee. This was in February 1999. Leave of absence, this means you’re not working there, but you may come back.
1. permission to be absent from work or duty
2. the period of absence
Is everyone following along? During the time of his ‘leave of absence’, other people ran Bain Capital. Now, while he was absent he was still invested in Bain Capital. The 2002 Winter Olympics ended in Feb 2002.
When the Olympics were over, Mitt Romney decided to run for Governor of Massachusetts. He won. He had never returned to run, operate, nor manage Bain Capital.
