    The Romney campaign is taking its complaints directly to The Washington Post’s door. Romney officials are reportedly meeting with the paper Wednesday to ask it to retract a story on Romney’s outsourcing record as the head of Bain Capital. According to Politico, the campaign is up in arms about the Post’s June 21 report, which depicted Bain as “helping outsourcing companies,” that “were emerging as handmaidens” to a mass “outflow of employment.” The campaign is prepared to defend each of the specified firms that the private-equity firm represented at the time. “The Post’s editors take all complaints seriously and are always willing to listen to concerns and look into them,” Post spokesperson Kris Coratti said. In the past, Romney officials have said that the assertions confuse “outsourcing” with “offshoring.”
