Duly Noted: Not on “my watch”…


Asked about Bain’s closure of a Kansas City steel plant that the company acquired in 1993 when Romney was Bain’s CEO, Romney last week told a conservative radio host that it wasn’t his problem: “Their problem, of course, is that the steel factory closed down two years after I left Bain Capital. I was no longer there. So that’s hardly something which is on my watch,” he said.

So if a job was created after Romney left Bain, he gets no credit, by his own admission.
