    This diarist finally lays out the REAL PROBLEM.

    The REAL PROBLEM behind Romney leaving Bain in 1999

    The REAL PROBLEM with his name still being CEO, through 2002

    The REAL PROBLEM there needed to be a retro-active retirement.

    The REAL PROBLEM that he had to lie about residency for Gov.


    The REAL PROBLEM with releasing his taxes for 10 years (2002)

    The problem is that as CEO of the SLOC at a time where graft and insider dealing was the norm.  It didn't go away.  Romney was in a place to award contracts (see law firm) to companies with exclusive Olympic deals - -

    Because he still had his foot (head) in the door at Bain, he could choose companies that Bain had an interest in and thereby make himself and his Bain Hommies a TON of money.  All the while, he appeared as the whistle clean guy who "cleaned up the Olympics" - what he really did was sweep the money into a corner where it could be "better" hidden.

    Thank you thank you thank you.  I have been commenting about this real reason for quite some time.  I simply do not have the research abilities or the intelligence of the diarist.  I DID happen to live in SLC and go to the Olympics where people in the "know" - had a barely concealed joke about Romney cleaning it up".  WE all knew he was making a killing, and now (as ever) he is doing all that is necessary to keep it hidden, except from people in the know.

    "How can the United States be the Greatest Nation ever if it is the only modern nation where citizens hold bake sales to pay for life saving medical care?" Single payer is coming but how many people will die before it becomes the only solution?
