“Romney staff spent nearly $100,000 to hide records” !!!!
In it Hosenball writes that “Reuters has learnt that” in 2007, during the final weeks of Mitt Romney’s term as governor of Massachusetts and a few months before he launched his campaign for the 2008 GOP presidential nomination, Romney spent nearly $100,000 in state funds to replace computers in his office at “as part of an unprecedented effort to keep his records secret.”
Having already characterized Romney’s effort as — gasp! — “unprecedented,” Hosenball then adds that unnamed faceless “Massachusetts officials” say that Romney’s move “was legal but unusual” for a departing governor.
All of which amounts to a pile of innuendo on the part of Reuters.
Gosh, I wish Hosenball and Reuters would be as assiduous in reporting on the ONE TO TWO MILLION DOLLARS Barack Obama has spent on the lawyers he’s hired to thwart all the many eligibility lawsuits from getting a hearing in court.
I wish Hosenball and Reuters could manage to muster even an ounce of curiosity about why three years into his presidency, Barack Obama still will not reveal his kindergarten school records; his college admission S.A.T. scores; his Occidental College records; his Columbia University records; his L.S.A.T. scores that got him admitted into the elite Harvard University Law School despite lackluster grades in both Occidental and Columbia; the passport he had used to travel to Pakistan in 1981; why he has a Connecticut-issued Social Security number; and, of course, the original, instead of an online image, of his birth certificate.
Until Hosenball musters up that elemental curiosity about Obama’s “unprecedented effort to keep his records secret,” I really can’t get all exercised about what Romney might or might not have done in 2007.
