The Romney campaign is hiring a corporate
public relations specialist to help guide their response to questions about the
candidate's time in the private sector with Bain Capital, Buzzfeed's Ben Smith reports.

Critics have already begun to ask why it
was necessary to hire anyone - let alone one of the country's most respected

Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul has not
responded to a request for comment on the hire.
