Winning Our Future SuperPAC Releases 28 Minute Documentary: 'When Mitt Romney Came To Town'

By Susan Duclos

Pro-Gingrich SuperPAC, Winning Our Future, has released the 28 minute documentary, titled "When Mitt Romney Came To Town", which will be shown, via YouTube embed, below the description provided by Winning Our Future on the same YouTube page.


Mitt Romney. Was he a job creator or a corporate raider?

That's the question this film answers.

And it's not pretty.

Mitt Romney was not a capitalist during his reign at Bain. He was a predatory corporate raider. His firm didn't seek to create value. Instead, like a scavenger, Romney looked for businesses he could pick apart. Indeed, he represented the worst possible kind of predator, operating within the law but well outside the bounds of what most real capitalists consider ethical.

He is exhibit number one the left wants to use in the coming election to give capitalism a bad name.

He and his friends at Bain were bad guys. Any real capitalists should disavow Romney's 'creative destruction' model that made him wealthy at the expense of thousands of American jobs.

Mitt Romney and his cronies pioneered 'deindustrialization,' a process by which they searched out vulnerable companies, took them over, loaded them with debt, and collected obscene fees while doing so. He sent jobs overseas or killed them altogether, and then picked apart the remains - including pension funds - before the companies went bankrupt.

Some might call that the free market. Most of us think its just plain wrong.

If you wonder why America has lost so many manufacturing jobs overseas, look no further than Mitt Romney -- the King of Bain.

Think you know Mitt?

Think again...

Video below:

H/T Robert Stacy McCain who points to far left, liberal, progressive bloggers calling this documentary a "hit job" and "devastating", and provides his take on why this line of attack against Mitt Romney is not to his liking. (Is this shameless obedience to rule #2 RSMcCain?)

This line of attack could be counter-productive within the Republican party and supporters, but as I mentioned when blogging about the teaser video for this documentary, Democrats have already said they plan on using this very same line of attack against Romney if he should win the GOP nomination.

Via NYT:

Democrats have signaled that they intend to make Mr. Romney’s history at Bain a central part of their case against him if he wins the Republican nomination.......

I see this a couple different ways.

If Republicans and conservative supporters use this line of attack against Romney because they do not want him as their presidential nominee, they better be very careful how they phrase these types of criticisms lest they be compared to the socialism rhetoric so touted by Barack Obama, Democrats, Liberals and Occupiers.

Not a good group for conservatives to want to be lumped in with.

On the other hand, if this is put out there now and Romney deals with and still takes the nomination, then one of the main lines of attack Democrats have already signaled they will use against Romney, and his position at Bain, in the general election it will have already been neutralized.
