Reid: Romney ‘Couldn’t Be Confirmed As Dog Catcher’ By The Senate

SAHIL KAPUR JULY 12, 2012, 12:52 PM 2857
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said Thursday that new revelations about Mitt Romney’s tenure at Bain Capital mean he’d have trouble gaining Senate approval for pretty much any job.

“He not only couldn’t be confirmed as a cabinet secretary, he couldn’t be confirmed as dog catcher,” Reid told reporters at a Capitol press briefing, in response to a question from TPM. “Because a dog catcher, you’re at least going to want to look at his income tax returns.”

“The long report that we have in the Boston Globe today indicates that, as one of his own employees said, it doesn’t make sense,” Reid continued. “He said he left Bain to go to the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and stopped any association with Bain. But his SEC filings indicated that he was Chief Executive Officer, sole stockholder, and ran the corporation for at least 3 more years. And that’s why people who say there’s been advertisements where businesses were closed, people laid off - and he says oh I wasn’t there, I left in 1999. As his own operative said, it doesn’t make sense. And it doesn’t.”

11. And also he obviously doesn't know how to treat dogs!

There isn't much he does know how to do, except use his wealth to get even richer.

13. He don't even know how to approach old rover.

He might be an expert at pumping the pooch though, most repubs are experts at poking the pup.
