You know what's so weird about Romney's continued refusal to release his tax returns? He's never held any other position for quite this long— The Daily Edge (@TheDailyEdge) July 20, 2012
In his new campaign ad, President Obama asks, ‘What is Mitt Romney hiding?’ My guess: a personality.
~ Jay Leno quoted on Political Humor
I was just the guy with the smoke screenish, yet still legal title of CEO and Managing Director who was paid at least $100,000 a year to do what, according to me, Mitt Romney, was nothing. That’s the kind of common sense business experience I hope to bring to the White House.

Andy Borowitz in The New Yorker:
Romney Claims Dog Ate Tax Returns and Ran Bain Capital for Three Years
“Seamus was more than a dog,” Mr. Romney said, his voice beginning to quaver. “As C.E.O. of Bain, he was a job creator.”
But Mr. Romney’s revelations about his dog’s career in private equity may have raised more questions than it answered, as a spokesperson for People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) questioned the G.O.P. candidate’s latest version of events.
“If we are to believe Mitt Romney, in 2002 while Seamus was supposedly running Bain Capital he would have been at least 140 years old [in dog years],” said PETA’s Carol Foyler. “This shaggy-dog story represents Mitt Romney’s latest act of animal cruelty.”
Minutes after PETA’s response, Mr. Romney released an amended statement, saying that Seamus Romney had served as C.E.O. of Bain “posthumously.”
