The major offensive on Romney and Bain Capital

Over at AMERICAblog Elections: The Right’s Field I have a post looking at the major offensive launched by Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, and a pro-Gingrich Super PAC on Mitt Romney’s tenure as a job-destroyer while in charge of Bain Capital.

A half-hour documentary, When Mitt Romney Came To Town, is a huge story this week. Watch it – it’s devastating and the interviews of workers who lost their jobs after Romney’s Bain came in and broke their companies are heart-breaking.

Of course, there is a real credibility question when it comes to how believable Gingrich and Perry are as messengers in this attack. Neither have proposed anything which would prohibit Bain Capital from behaving today the way they did when Romney was in charge. That is unlikely to change, but the political attacks on Romney and his record at Bain Capital won’t stop either.
