Romney a "CPA"?
Mitt Romney has started airing ads in which he promises to "audit the Big Dig" (such a good idea, three Republican regimes in Massachusetts have already done it, of course). Particularly interesting is his promise in the ad to "personally inspect" the spending in question.Just a bit more background -- the "Big Dig" is the nation's largest public works project, a laudable effort to replace the unsightly Boston leg of I-93 with an underground tunnel under the city. The project has been extensively mismanaged, and cost overruns have been in the billions. But as Francis-Wright notes, the notion of Romney personally poring over financial statements spanning tens of billions of dollars is ridiculous, especially when he couldn't keep his own house in order.
