    Mitt Romney stayed at Bain three years longer than he claimed: As we’ve previously noted, Mitt Romney twice told the Government Ethics Office that he left Bain Capital in February 1999, but there has been plenty of evidence suggesting otherwise. When he left Bain is a critical question, both because a different date than the one he claimed could mean he lied on official forms, and also because Romney has used the early departure date to insulate himself from attacks on Bain’s practices during the early 2000s.

    But the Boston Globe reports today that Romney stayed on a full three years longer at Bain than he has claimed. Securities and Exchange Commission documents filed the in the years after 1999 list Romney as the “sole stockholder, chairman of the board, chief executive officer, and president” of Bain. And a Massachusetts financial disclosure form Romney filed in 2003 states that he still owned 100 percent of Bain Capital in 2002.

    I think people need to understand there is a difference between Bain & Co and Bain Capital...this has apparently been the cause of much the confusion...

    And the Romney campaign wants to change some of those awful terms that are being used about him.

    It's not called "Corporate Raiding" if Mitt does it. It's called "Profit Actualization".
    It's not called "Lay Offs" if Mitt does it. It's called "Releasing New Potential".
    It's not called "Out Sourcing" if Mitt does it. It's called "Charitable Overseas Employment".
    It's not called "Tax Payer Subsidies" if Mitt gets it. It's called "Re-purposing Surpluses".

    See how simple that is?

    I see that wikipedia hasn't updated the date Mitten actually left yet.
