When Newt Gingrich released a 28-minute film painting Mitt Romney as a corporate raider who profited from struggling companies, the Romney campaign said it expected that type of criticism not from Republicans, but from President Obama.
That criticism has arrived.
The Obama campaign opened a new line of attack today with a website aimed at undermining Romney’s claims that his business experience makes him more qualified to turn the U.S. economy around.
RomneyEconomics.com hits the former Bain Capital chief with what the Obama campaign says are case studies of companies whose workers suffered under Bain’s ownership, featuring a six-minute video about GST Steel, a Kansas City plant that Bain bought in 1993 and which later filed for bankruptcy. Shorter, ad-length versions also exist.
