"Romney Surrogate: Romney’s Experience At Bain Is ‘Fair Game’"

This morning, Mitt Romney surrogate and former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu (R) said on a conference call organized by the Massachusetts governor’s presidential campaign that Romney’s “entire” business record at Bain Capital should be “fair game,” but accused President Obama of cherry picking the company’s failed investments. The comments come as Newark Mayor Cory Booker (D) fends off criticism for claiming that attacking Romney’s tenure at Bain is “ridiculous” and “nauseating” and the Romney campaign continues to suggest that to examine his business record is to condemn the whole of private enterprise. On Monday, Obama himself explained that while private equity firms are “set up to maximize profits” for shareholders, the president is responsible for the health of the economy as a whole and fostering job creation.
