“He needs to take control of his people… It’s Chicago-style politics at its worst.“
Romney demanded an apology from the president.
The Hill reported:
Mitt Romney demanded an apology from President Obama over allegations that Romney misled the public over his tenure at Bain Capital, declaring that he had “no role whatsoever in managing Bain Capital after 1999.”
“He sure as heck ought to say that he’s sorry for the kinds of attacks that are coming from his team,” Romney told ABC News on Friday. “If I were president of the United States I would put a stop to it and apologize to my campaign for what has been done by his.”
The presumptive GOP nominee echoed his message on other networks, telling Fox News: Obama “really needs to rein in his team and finally take responsibility for what they’re saying.”
“When you have other people who are managing the enterprise, who take responsibility for all the investment decisions, who decide who’s going to get hired and fired, who decide compensation decisions, they’re the managers, they’re the people running the business,” Romney told CBS News. :I left the business and went off to run the Olympics, did that full time and after three years, when the Olympics were over, we arranged my departure officially from a retirement standpoint.”
Romney also blasted Obama’s deputy campaign manager, Stephanie Cutter, for insinuating earlier in the week that Romney might have committed a felony by signing the documents.
“Is that really what’s expected for the campaign of a sitting president of the United States to say of the Republican nominee?,” Romney asked on CNN. “Is this the level the campaign is willing to stoop to?”
