Re: Mitt Romney Bain Capital Document Lists Him As 'Managing Member' In 2002 ...
President Obama has raised issues about what Mitt Romney was doing from 1999 to 2002 and claims this is an important question. It's also important to know what Obama was doing during the same years.
Mitt Romney was running the Olympics. When he took the job, he inherited an organization mired in a bribery scandal and facing a nearly $400 million budget shortfall. He agreed to take the offered salary of $250,000 only if the games didn't lose money.
In the end, the Olympics were a huge success and finished with a $56 million surplus, which was set aside for future Olympics. Romney donated his entire salary to charity and donated $1 million to the games.
During the same time period, Barrack Obama was toiling diligently voting "present" in the Illinois Senate, where he also took credit for bills he didn't draft and didn't introduce.
