McQuaid says there's some basic information all voters need to evaluate a candidate, and Romney either doesn't want to talk about it, or it's just not there. That missing information threatens to derail Romney's chances.
Start first of all with his tenure as governor of Massachusetts. Romney doesn’t want to talk much about his signature accomplishment, health care reform with an individual mandate, because it is the model for Obamacare, which he wants to repeal and which the GOP base abhors. Similarly, the temporizing about when Romney left Bain (before or after it started pursuing an aggressive offshoring strategy), is an attempt to erase responsibility for that strategy from his record. So Romney doesn’t want to talk about Bain either. (I’ve written on how Romney’s “capitalism is good” message avoids even acknowledging the course that American capitalism has taken in the past generation, which helped him build his fortune but was hardly an unalloyed good for the nation.) Then, of course, there is the matter of Romney’s tax returns, another informational void into which Democrats can pour any kind of speculation.
