The pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action has created a new web video which uses attacks from Mitt Romney's rivals during the Republican primary to attack Romney's record at Bain Capital. "Somebody who's very wealthy comes in, takes over your company, takes out all the cash, and leaves behind the unemployment," Newt Gingrich says in one clip used in the video. "I think that's not a model we want to advocate, and I don't think any conservative wants to get caught defending that kind of model."
Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman makes an appearance, saying "Governor Romney enjoys firing people. I enjoy creating jobs." Texas Gov. Rick Perry is also featured prominently in the video, where he says "There is something fundamentally wrong when getting rich off failure and sticking it to someone else is how you do your business."
Also included is a clip of Sarah Palin saying it was legitimate to ask Romney for proof of his claim to have created 100,000 jobs while at Bain.
"Even Republicans know Mitt Romney has not explained how his experience profiting from companies driven to bankruptcy qualifies him to be President," Bill Burton, Senior Strategist for Priorities USA Action said in a statement. "If Romney makes business experience the central reason for his campaign, voters have every right to question the many deals where Romney made millions while workers lost their jobs and promised benefits.”
The video comes after Mitt Romney's campaign on Monday created a video featuring Democrats questioning Obama's attacks on Bain Capital.
