Mitt Romney's $100k Job Creation Record Is AMAZING

You want to know what I think is a really great example of Mitt Romney's job creation? The $100,000 a year job where you don't have to do anything:

Also, a Massachusetts financial disclosure form Romney filed in 2003 states that he still owned 100 percent of Bain Capital in 2002. And Romney’s state financial disclosure forms indicate he earned at least $100,000 as a Bain “executive” in 2001 and 2002, separate from investment earnings.
Friday, Mitt Romney indicated exactly what his role was at Bain from 1999 to 2002:
"I was the owner of the entity that was filing this information, but I had no role whatsoever in the management of Bain Capital after 1999. I left in February of 1999."
He had no role whatsoever. But he collected a hundred grand in salary. Not profit sharing or capital gains or carried interest. SALARY.

That is some kinda job! Who wouldn't want a job where you get $100k a year to have no role whatsoever? If that's the kind of jobs Mitt Romney wants to create, sign me up! Unfortunately for America, Mitt Romney only created one job of this type...for himself.
