Meanwhile the president's deputy campaign manager accuses the governor of possibly committing a crime.
In regards to his time at -- Stephanie Cutter says quote.
Either Mitt Romney threw his own words and his own signature was misrepresenting his position at -- into the SEC which is a felony.
Or he was misrepresenting -- his position at -- to the American people to avoid responsibility for some of the consequences of his investments.
-- I'll get to is feet communications director for governor Romney's campaign.
Gail good morning.
Good morning thanks for having -- -- -- great to have you because there seems to be some confusion about exactly when Mitt Romney left Bain Capital and the reason this is significant.
Is because in -- years 2002001.
After Mitt Romney says he left there were apparently some job losses and -- outsourcing.
As a result of some of -- decisions so Democrats.
Want to confirm whether or not Mitt Romney was still at being so what year or did it Mitt -- -- Bain Capital.
Well I think round.
Document right by many different people both friend that -- the -- company Bain Capital and as well as people from the Olympics as well as.
Independent fact checkers from across the country governor Romney left Bain.
In 1999 now around the Olympics out.
-- got it now that has all along been you work.
-- as well as governor Romney's however the Boston Globe says it they've examined these SEC documents and according to these SEC documents.
Mitt Romney was listed as the sole stockholder that chairman of the board.
The Chief Executive Officer and president of -- through the year 2002.
Does the SEC have it wrong.
Well apparent technical illegal -- And why his name would remain on those documents but the fact is.
And it's been confirmed by the fact checkers Bain Capital -- people at the Olympics that he was gone from the company.
To the Olympics in 1999.
And had no involvement in the day to day decision making at the company at that time.
Okay so that's -- -- let you and that -- -- and he was -- collecting a paycheck from Maine after 1999 but he was not involved in the operational decision making.
That that is correct in the only confusion that there is on this issue is from the Obama campaign the Obama campaign has issued these.
Reckless and wild accusations that Mitt Romney is a criminal and it -- and that just simply doesn't pass the laugh test.
And frankly it just shows -- signs that they desperate and unraveling campaign for them to continue along these lines.
When they are being independent fact checkers from all over the country who are saying they are running a dishonest attack that that they did it dishonest campaign that -- -- pattern.
Of being dishonest.
-- this this attack from yesterday has frankly just jumped the shark and it shows that the Obama campaign they are scared to death of having to run on their own record.
Because they haven't been able to play cops and they have no plans.
In the future to be able to fix the economy and that for the American people care about I can tell you that the American people are not sitting around the dinner table.
Wondering when Mitt Romney left Bain Capital the got to the -- they know that they did because they thought him running the Olympics.
-- there sitting around at dinner table talking about.
If this economy and how we're gonna get it moving again and get half of the American people wanna talk about what governor Ronnie want to talk about but that's not at all what -- Obama campaign.
We shouldn't let our viewers know that we did also reach out to the Obama campaign to have somebody on during this segment but they never got back to us.
Let's just read then since its campaign -- campaign what Bain Capital itself says about his time there here's the statement they say that's.
Mitt Romney left Bain Capital in February 1999 to run the Olympics and has had no absolutely no involvement with the management or investment activities of the firm.
Or we did any of its portfolio companies since -- day of his departure.
Do you think I know -- said -- nobody sitting around their dinner table commenting on this but do you think that on some level particularly in battleground states all these negative ads.
The President Obama has been running against Mitt Romney are starting to make a dent.
Well let me tell you that yesterday President Obama made it very clear that he is.
Bound and determined to run and dishonest campaign and let me explain -- say that I say that because he is put millions of dollars behind an advertisement.
That it's been proven false by people around the country that suggests that governor Romney they're very specific companies and jobs overseas.
What is interesting about this week is that it was reported out that President Obama is the -- -- in -- President Obama is the one who spent jobs.
-- then when he outsourced job creations of Finland.
Jobs were not created here in the United States because of the stimulus they were created in Finland and maybe the Obama campaign didn't wanna come on the show today to talk about that.
Because they can't defend it they can't defend -- fact that President Obama outsourced jobs that Finland.
Well I youngest show you of the communications director for governor Mitt Romney for his campaign we should say.
Thanks so much for coming in to help clarify all of these reports we appreciate it.
Thank you for --
