Quote o’ the Day (Strain To Explain Bain Edition)

Yesterday the Romney campaign unveiled yet another concept with a capital K in trying to counter the Obama campaign’s Swift-Yachting of the former Massachusetts governor.

Romney campaign gunsel Ed Gillespie actually said this to CNN’s Candy Crowley (via Mediaite):

“Because of Mitt Romney’s leadership skills, he was called on to do it [rescue the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics], and he ended up not going back [to Bain] at all and retired retroactively to February of 1999 as a result.”

The CNN interview (check around 3:20):


Gillespie said the same thing on yesterday’s Meet the Press (around 1:45):


Retired retroactively?

Is that anything like self-deporting?

With lame spin like that,  Gillespie might consider self-deporting from the Romney campaign.

Or would that be retiring retroactively?
