Mitt Romney’s campaign is well-versed in the art of secrecy. Hard drives from state-owned computers while he was governor of Massachusetts? Purchased by his staffers and erased. The 23 years of tax returns he provided to the McCain campaign in 2008 while being vetted (and passed over) for vice president? Under lock and key. The details of millions of dollars of his investments with Bain Capital? Romney won’t say. The identities of people who are bundling millions of dollars in campaign contributions? Refuses to tell.
What’s perhaps most surprising — and troubling — is Romney’s refusal to take positions on some of the most important issues of the day. For example, Romney had no problem attacking the president over Friday’s (Jun 15) immigration policy announcement, yet he refused to say when asked five separate times in a single interview whether he’d repeal the policy if elected president.
