Mitt Romney: Obama Camp's Bain Capital Attacks Are 'Beneath the Dignity of the Presidency'
Mitt Romney says that President Obama is falsely accusing him of outsourcing American jobs during his time at Bain Capital to deliberately stifle a debate over jobs and the economy. In an interview with Fox News Channel’s Carl Cameron, Romney called recent attacks by the Obama campaign “disappointing,” and said that they are “beneath the dignity of the presidency and of his [President Obama’s] campaign.”
Thursday, a top Obama aide accused Romney of either committing a felony by signing documents indicating that he remained CEO of Bain Capital until 2002 or lying to voters when he says he left in 1999 to run the Olympics. Of the accusations, Romney said, “He [President Obama] really needs to reign in his team and finally take responsibility for what they are saying. This is really absurd.”
Romney said that such attacks on him are not going to distract the American people. “He’s going to have to finally confront the American people with the failures of his policies and talk about the way forward,” Romney said.
