CNN reporter tweets this ...

CNN has obtained from a Democratic official a Bain Capital doc filed with Mass Sec of Commonwealth in 01 that shows Romney as pres.

... and one minute later says that Romneyland has responded with this:
The Romney campaign just told me the document is simply more confirmation his name was still attached to government ecords but nothing more.

Yeah, it's nothing except confirmation that Mitt Romney was still the head of Bain Capital in 2001. Just like he was in 2002. And just like he was in 1999 and 2000.

Yes, Romney's primary focus was on the Olympics. But Bain was still his company. It was his name on the documents. And he was ultimately responsible for it because he owned it.

Unless, of course, Romneyland wants to argue that the buck doesn't stop with Mitt. Come to think of it, that's pretty much exactly what they are doing.

And while they are at it, could they please explain how Mitt Romney "earned" $20 million last year from Bain Capital if he has nothing to do with it?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
