01/31/13 UPDATE: Word has come to me that Truthout has retracted the story to which my blog post below refers. The story, by Truthout’s Danny Weil, apparently misread the OpenSecrets data, and confused contributions made by individuals with those from PACs.

Right after June’s disappointing jobs report, Mitt Romney went right out and stepped on the rake of bringing up his business background — i.e. Bain just as it was going to become nearly toxic.
