Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is defending Mitt Romney’s management career at the Bain Capital investment firm he founded, saying he should be “very, very proud” of his enormous success in business and never apologize for it.
 
“If Mitt Romney could have the same success for us in America that he had for Bain Capital and their investors, we would be in great shape, wouldn’t we?” Giuliani told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Thursday.
 
Giuliani accused the Obama campaign of trying to smear the Republican presidential nominee with distortions about his Bain years. He also suggested that a Boston Globe report Thursday raising questions about when Romney actually left Bain was planted by panicked Obama supporters.
 
“This is all not coincidental,” Giuliani said. “I mean this is because this election has gotten close, really, really close. When you look at polls, they’re dead even.
 
“But the enthusiasm level on the Romney side is significantly higher than the enthusiasm level on his side,” he said. “And Romney is out-raising [Obama] in terms of money. So, I think they are panicking.”
 
Giuliani said the latest attacks are just a sign that things are “only going to get worse” for the likely Republican presidential nominee as the November election approaches.
 
“They are going to attack Mitt Romney with as many misrepresentations, as many distortions, as you possibly can imagine because there is actually nothing wrong with Mitt Romney’s background,” said Guiliani.
 
“The man should be very, very proud of the fact that he’s been enormously successful in business. That’s generally what we want in our president, someone who has been successful in the past,” the former mayor continued. “We’ve tried someone who didn't have a great deal of success in the past. And you see what we have gotten.
 
“So, now, let’s try somebody who has been successful in that past, successful as a governor, successful in running the Olympics, and highly successful in business.”
