Mitt Romney's campaign has hired former Henry Paulson aide and Fannie Mae honcho Michele Davis for Bain rehabilitation.
Could anyone have a worse resume for explaining away the Obama team's charges against Bain Capital than an aide to the TARP bailout originator, the former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson or someone who worked for the taxpayer draining money pit Fannie Mae?
Davis is currently a partner at the Brunswick Group in Washington, D.C., a corporate public relations and strategy firm, where she was reportedly the firm's lead — alongside then-Brunswick executive Hilary Rosen — in managing the oil company BP's public relations effort in the wake of a giant Gulf of Mexico oil spill. She served as Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs and Director of Policy Planning at the Department of the Treasury from 2006 through the end of the Bush Administration, and is a veteran of the politics and P.R. of government and finance.
