Romney earns much credit and some questions for his Olympic Games performance

Romney is putting his time running the Olympics back in the spotlight Saturday when he speaks at a major celebration honoring the 10-year anniversary of the 2002 games. He plans to tell the crowd how his time running the Olympics is a fundamental part of the resume he's relying on as he seeks the GOP nomination and the White House itself.
