Yet Another Convenient Romney Memory Lapse

Willard Mitt is a hands-on guy, someone who “savors both the big picture and the smallest detail.” (source: skimag.com) Until something goes wrong. Then he is just another surprised-as-anyone, out-of-the-loop dope.

Remember last year when the Fraud Candidate was found to have taken an illegal Utah-property tax break? His excuse was that he was “unaware” of the discount. (source: Boston Globe, 6/13/2002)

Remember when Romney's Bain crony was found to have last year committed campaign finance violations? Romney's loathsome $150,000-a-year spokesman mewled that "it's not a situation we're familiar with. We have nothing to say." (source: Boston Herald, 6/24/2003)

Well here we go again.

The Fraud Governor is claiming he knows nothing of his investment in DDi, an investment that may have earned him several million dollars of profit, yet been involved in a fraud that is currently being investigated by the SEC. When asked to explain the situation, the Fraud Governor refused to answer, sending instead his loathsome $150,000-a-year spokesman to sneer “I don’t have any information for you, and the (fraud) governor wouldn’t be in a position to provide any information because he has zero knowledge of these matters.” (source: Boston Globe, 8/19/2003)

The guy makes several million dollars in profit, yet has zero knowledge of the matter.

And this is the hands-on Team with whom we have entrusted our $24 billion Commonwealth.

The good news is that state Treasurer Tim Cahill is about to clear Romney’s name. Cahill has pledged to investigate the DDi deal under the pretense of recouping pension loses. (source: Boston Globe, 8/20/2003)

The bet here is that the investigation will place no controlling blame at Romney’s feet. Romney will, therefore, claim he was a victim – just like every other Joe Bag-of-Doughnuts that beat the street for $2 + million. And the issue will go away. Just as the illegal Utah-residency tax break went away when the Ballot Law Commission found that Willard Mitt was qualified to run for office.

Leaving Romney free to plead ignorance about Stage Stores or AmPad or the plan to build or kill or 'fix-it-first' the Greenbush commuter rail line. (source: Boston Globe, 8/20/2003)
