What you’re witnessing below is a candidate on the ropes. Mitt Romney is on the defensive, about outsourcing, Bain Capital, when he left the company and now his tax returns, which he’s refusing to release despite demands even from some Republicans that he do so.
It’s enough to make you wonder whether the GOP is going to hand onto him as putative nominee. I don’t think picking Condi Rice for his VP slot can save him from this. Oh Lord — on the defensive is not where he wants to be.
