Devastating Anti-Romney Film Surfaces
A film depicting GOP presidential front-runner Mitt Romney as a heartless corporate raider has emerged just as the race is heating up.
When Mitt Romney Came to Town, a film about Romney's time as CEO of Bain Capital, "is without a doubt the most serious attack on the former Massachusetts governor's campaign," the Raw Story reports.
Produced by a former top Romney strategist, the film focuses on people laid off from their jobs at four of the many companies Bain Capital essentially looted, tapping into the popular discontentment with Wall Street to label Romney a "corporate raider." The companies -- laundry-equipment maker UniMac, electronics maker DDI, toy-store chain KayBee Toys and office supplier AmPad -- were all purchased by Bain and liquidated, "killing jobs for big financial rewards," the film explains.
"They could care less about us, the way I see it," one of the film's subjects explains. "Who am I? Mitt Romney and them guys, they don't care about who I am."
The pro-Gingrich PAC Winning Our Future placed a top-dollar bid on the 27-minute film after pro-Romney PACs essentially destroyed Gingrich's chances in Iowa with a flood of negative advertising that blanketed the airwaves.
"It's puzzling to see Speaker Gingrich and his supporters continue their attacks on free enterprise," the Romney campaign said of the Gingrich PAC's new film. "This is the type of criticism we've come to expect from President Obama and his left-wing allies at Moveon.org. Unlike President Obama and Speaker Gingrich, Mitt Romney spent his career in business and knows what it will take to turn around our nation's bad economy."
