Mitt Romney has been slamming the Obama administration on these issues, running ads and giving speeches on the dangers of cronyism and crony capitalism. Good for him in raising the issue. But how committed is candidate Romney to going past the talk? After he spoke about the issue, he couldn’t name a single ethics reform that he would initiate to deal with the problem. Huh?

Of course cronyism thrives when it comes to a lack of transparency. Romney still refuses to reveal the names of his campaign bundlers. He’s released the names of his bundlers that are registered lobbyists (he’s required to do so by law), but not everyone else. The fact that the big winners of the Obama administration’s largesse were campaign bundlers seems lost on the Romney campaign. And Governor Romney won’t admit that maybe it was wrong for him as governor to practice cronyism by steering (albeit much smaller) Massachusetts state loans to favored companies. After all, the Romney campaign would rather talk about Obama’s cronyism than discuss any of this…

How about committing to these basic reforms for starters…
