Posted on 01/12/2012 4:07:31 PM PST by Antoninus
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."

They can blame it on Newt or we can thank Newt and Palin for letting us know what Dems were going to do to Mitt. Sarah said we need to vet ALL the candidates. No way could the GOP hide this or give a reasonable explaination, but they chose Mitt anyway???? Newt and Sarah are saving the election, and giving us a chance to win if we get rid of Mitt. Mitt WILL NOT BEAT OBAMA.
If inclined, please ping interested parties. Thanks.
Ad from 1994.
Well, I have to agree the narrative is a slam against vultures. But sometimes a good public service announcement has to break some vulture’s golden eggs to catch attention.
We will go down to defeat with Romney, just as we did McCain. If nominated, he will not hit the Messiah nearly as hard as he needs to be hit politically. Mittens will not do so because he will fear being called a racist, which he may be called anyway.
And then there is Obamacare, Mittens winning the nomination will take that issue out of the equation since it was explained by Don Feder that they are pretty much the same thing.
There are also the Social Conservatives to consider with their opposition to infanticide and deadly sexual perversions. They would get a slap in the face with the Romney nomination, furthering his chances at defeat in the general election.
I am going with Newt Gingrich! At least, Newt manned up and apologized for his earlier anti capitalist attacks. As the nomination struggle goes on, Newt will not make these errors in the future.
I'm down to praying for Divine intervention!!!!
Being from Massachusetts, I remember the 1994 senate campaign very well so this film is old news to me and while it was effectively used against Romney, it was not necessarily the coupe de grace. After all, the same voters elected Romney their governor just eight years later.
That said, like another poster said, this is very Michael Mooreish. You could easily produce such a film against Steve Jobs and Apple for putting all those poor independent record stores out of business. No doubt you could find a lot of heart-tugging sob stories about how people's dreams of owning their own record store was shattered by the invasion of iTunes and iPods. Fact is, Bain Capital was behind a lot of success stories also, such as Staples, Dunkin Donuts, Sports Authority and Brookstones, to name just a few.
There are plenty of other ways to show Mitt Romney is unfit to be president besides putting ourselves in league with socialist, marxist scumbags.
This is not a defense of Mitt Romney but a defense of venture capital, without which, most of our successful companies today would never have gotten off the ground. So those who are cheering on this method of attack do so at their own peril and probably have no right considering themselves capitalists.
Where did you find that number? I heard it was only $5m.
I’m also already seeing Lefties happily grunting over this one.
Neutron Jack loves Romney
‘Privatizing the profit, socializing the risk’
That's in addition to all the hits it's probably getting at its primary home.
I am too, but honestly, why should God save a nation that:
—murders it babies in the womb, some having their skulls crushed and suctioned seconds before their first breath?
— Willingly sends its children into morally corrupt, godless, socialist K-12 schools? The children must think and reason godlessly just to cooperate in the classroom. How could it be otherwise? Gee! And...Conservatives and Christians continue to defend these godless schools and can be found on Friday night cheering their town's godless government sponsored gladiator teams.
Romney don't care. Romney don't give a sh*t. He just takes what he wants, and says "Thanks stupid!".
Just ask Honey Badger.
My previous reply to you was in response to the above comment.
This is Devastating for Romney and Bain. And it would only get more air time if her were to become the Republican Nominee.
ROMNEY = GREED
Romney is Disgusting.
These people will be on all the News Shows, the View, etc if he were to become the Nominee. They are believable and have a paper trail how their company was treated differently while under the Romney regime.
One person said that they had been sold to other companies, but it wasn’t until Romney bought the company that they had to close their doors.
One person says that Romney only wanted the equipment, fired the people, then sold the equipment and made millions due to bankruptcy laws.
Romney is disgusting and needs to be called a Liar any time he attempts to say he created 1000’s of jobs.
Romney will never win. If he were to become the nominee, look for every single person in the video to be on all the Leftist Media Shows.
No wonder Zero and the Libs want Romney to win, Zero is guaranteed a win if Romney were to be the nominee.
Rush, et al are smoking something if they continue to support Romney. This video is devastating and these people are available for National interviews from here until the November election. And there are 1000’s of more workers like them in that they will never run out of Romney haters.
Romney is TOAST in the general. FACT
And that was in 1994, when the internet barely existed, and there was no such thing as a viral video.
Uhhhh, wrong. The people in this video will be available for numerous live interviews going forward. This is just one film. These Anti-Romney people and 100's more will become available for numerous live interviews throughout this election.
Romney is TOAST.
Go NEWT !
You are a drama queen of epic proportions.
