Mitt Romney’s tenure at Bain Capital is causing some consternation within Republican ranks. Newt Gingrich, who has been aggressively raising the issue, told Bloomberg News: “[Romney’s] got some very big questions to answer, that the Wall Street Journal reported in one case they bought a company. They put $30 million in. They took $180 million out and the company went bankrupt. Now, at some point, somebody’s got to explain.” This morning on Fox, even stalwart right-winger Rep. Allen West refused to say he was “comfortable” with Romney’s work at Bain:
BRIAN KILMEADE: Republican candidates have taken shots at Mitt Romney’s private equity background — what he did at Bain Capital. Are you comfortable with that?
ALLEN WEST: Well I think one of the things that Gov. Romney probably needs to do is explain his position there at Bain Capital.
