21. I wonder if Romney's post 1999 time at Bain was, to him, like padding his resume.....

Which is to say, I wonder if he got the executive title and money during those two years, but didn't really do anything--like if your uncle puts you on the books as an employee for his company, and you get token pay, but don't do anything. Later on, you can say in your resume you worked for your uncle's company, but you didn't really.

I wonder if that's what happened with Mitt in those two years. Maybe he didn't actually do anything, he was just given a token spot. Which is why he thinks he can now say he quit in 1999. Because to him, he did. Those extra years were for his Presidential resume. But finding that they actually hurt his chances, he's now disavowing them. Unfortunately, they are on the resume.

Of course, if I'm right, then this also undermines him saying that any executive/CEO knows what his company is doing and is involved in doing it. Poor Mitt. Anyway he spins it, he can't have it both ways.
