Romney Chairman quits. Can't deal with "ever-changing persona."

Mitt Romney's 2008 New Hampshire chairman, Bruce Keough, just declined an invitation to handle Romney's 2012 campaign saying he's "no longer sure what Romney stands for."

According to Keough, he could no longer handle Romney's "wishy-washy political identity and inability to stake out firm, consistent opinions."

Imagine how slimey do you have to be to be too slimey for a seasoned political operative.

Comments during the 2008 campaign from the head of the Massachusetts Republican Party, James Rappaport, who was Chairman while Romney was Governor.

“...James Rappaport, former head of the Massachusetts Republican Party held a press conference recently to announce his endorsement of Rudy Giuliani. ..... Rappaport, who served when Romney was governor, said Romney “has a strong record of showmanship as opposed to actual performance.” On his relationship with the State Legislature, “His word is no good … Mitt Romney would say one thing in a meeting and literally go out of the meeting to the press and tell the opposite story. There was no desire in the legislature to be accommodating to him because they couldn’t trust him…. Romney will be clear today on what he believes today, and he’ll be clear tomorrow on what he believes tomorrow, but they may be different things.”


and a quote from Sandy Rios, "Mitt Romney is a duplicitous man, and his most damning duplicity has brought about a sea change in marriage and family that our country may never recover from."

CONFLICT OF INTEREST

Mitt Romney's company, private equity firm Bain Capital, where he is still a silent partner, just completed after 1 year of pending negotiations a leveraged buyout agreement for $19.5 billion, of Clear Channel Communications. Clear Channel owns more than 1,100 full-power AM, FM, and shortwave radio stations, twelve radio channels on XM Satellite Radio, and more than 30 television stations in the United States.



Premiere Radio Networks, which is the largest syndication company in the United States, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Clear Channel and is home to Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, FOX NEWS Radio and many others. Sean Hannity recently signed a large multi-market contract with Clear Channel.



Romney's campaign finance chief, Robert F. White, is a partner at Bain Financial. According to CNN/Money magazine’s Dec 10, 2007 article “Millionaires-in-chief” , some 43% of Romney's portfolio is currently invested in Bain Capital.
