Romney Silent on Bain in China

There could be more damage to Mitt Romney than just the now-infamous “47 percent” remark. The Obama campaign on Monday attacked the Romney camp over a leaked campaign video where the Republican nominee brags about touring a Chinese factory as president of Bain Capital—and Romney’s campaign gave an official “no comment” on the story.

Romney’s had a somewhat strained relationship with China, a point Vice President Joe Biden hit hard on the campaign trail on Monday, quoting the Chinese state media criticizing Romney’s claims of a hard line on trade between the two countries.
