Why is it that when Republicans focused half of 2008 on what church President Obama attended it was called "going on offense" but when Democrats focus on Mitt Romney's "business experience," it's "negative campaigning" and he's being "swift boated"?

Barack Obama's campaign has given us all a crash course on the ills of Bain, but hasn't given us an alternative narrative of the kind of capitalism that should define the nation as we emerge from the financial crisis -- if, in fact, we ever do.

Romney's Tax Returns Could Cost Him the Election

Abby Huntsman

If one has nothing to hide, why not release a set of comprehensive records (Romney reportedly, after all, provided the McCain campaign with 20+ years of returns when being vetted for VP)? The answer is simple -- Mitt Romney must have something to hide.

Sunday Roundup

Arianna Huffington | Posted 09.13.2012 | Politics

At the heart of Mitt Romney's campaign is the competence he demonstrated while running Bain Capital. But this week at the heart of his campaign were Romney's claims about having not actually run Bain -- at least not from 1999 to 2002. What makes this particular time period significant is that during these years the private equity firm managed companies that were "pioneers" in outsourcing American jobs and steered multiple others into bankruptcy. The Obama campaign framed the inconsistency as "a big Bain lie" and suggested the GOP candidate had either lied to the SEC or to the American people. Romney insists he left Bain in 1999 to run the 2002 Winter Olympics. This week he takes the gold medal for his marathon sprint from his own record. You can tell he's been training: he shaved three years off his time at Bain.
