OK, the first thing I want you to do, before you join this discussion, is to look at this video and read the accompanying article. In it are 35 questions which Mitt Romney is going to have to answer if he wants to put the Bain issue to rest. These questions are at the heart of the Bain issue, and they are not going to go away until Mitt decides to make them go away by truthfully answering them.
Now some in the Democratic Party are insinuating that Romney is a felon, and that, IMHO, is going a bit too far. But, according to the article, Romney clearly misled the SEC while running for Governor of Massachusetts. That is definitely not a felony, but it does go to the core of where his ethics, or lack of them, live. He is going to have to deal with this very fast, before his campaign derails.
If Romney cannot answer the questions now before him, then stick a fork in him. He is done, as this issue will drive a stake directly through the heart of his campaign, and Republicans will lament that they did not choose a better candidate in a year that Obama could easily have been defeated.
