Why Doesn't Romney Fire That Guy!

So here's a question.  By his own happy quote, Romney "likes to fire the people that don't provide good service."  So why doesn't he fire his campaign manager that gave the Etch a Sketch quote?
.
Seriously.  It would show he holds friends up to the same standards he holds low-life employees up to.  Cuz, bet your ass, if someone he didn't know cost a Bain company this much money (and Econ 101 will tell you "Good Will" is a line item on a takeover with a dollar value assigned to it) - Romeny would fire his ass.
.
By NOT firing him, Romney just reinforces the perception that he has rules for his friends (crony capitalism at it's worst) and rules for the little people (the unwashed and non-Mormon).
.
Just saying....

I think it might have something to do with blind loyalty. As quoted the other day..... “The Righteous Mind,” by Jonathan Haidt, a University of Virginia psychology professor, argues that, for liberals, morality is largely a matter of three values: caring for the weak, fairness and liberty. Conservatives share those concerns (although they think of fairness and liberty differently) and add three others: loyalty, respect for authority and sanctity.
