It does not matter to me that Mitt Romney is rich. He earned his money and he has a right to enjoy all the benefits of the wealthy. I am really not interested in his tax returns. He’s rich and he has offshore accounts, tax shelters and every other kind of legal device to maximize his profits, but what does make me pause is his “retroactive retirement”. Now that phrase was uttered by Ed Gillespie on Meet the Press Sunday and that is ridiculous. If Romney left Bain in 1999 as he claims it is puzzling that his name appears on company documents two years later. To try to wipe it away by saying he retroactively retired is simply a crock. Americans might not understand the ends and outs of high finance, but Americans are not stupid and this line of defense is just that–stupid.
