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.
