For those who have seen the entire video, you'll recognize some parts.  The Gingrich Pac is going up today in South Carolina with TV ads consisting of 30 second and 60 second excerpts from "When Mitt Romney Came To Town."  

Here's a link to the 30 second excerpt.  (there's a short ad before it begins)

A group of corporate raiders led by Mitt Romney.  The company was Bain Capital.  More ruthless than Wall Street.

Workingman:"Pulled the rug out from under our plant (?)"

Workingwoman: "Everybody was fired.  They fire people. They cut benefits.  They sell assets."

Workingman: "Mitt Romney, them guys.  They don't care who I am."

Workingwoman: "I feel that is the man who destroyed us."

The PAC has made a $2.4M ad buy in South Carolina for this and other ads.  I don't have a link to the 60 second ad on the King of Bain yet.  In addition, the PAC is considering/exploring buying 30 minute blocks of time to run the movie on TV.

Ed Kilgore describes the movie as "one of the most devilishly effective attack communications I've personally ever seen--a heat-seeking missile aimed directly at the white working class id. ...  No wonder DeMint and Limbaugh have denounced this video: they should, because it's an assault on everything they believe in."

For those who have not yet seen "When Mitt Romney Came To Town," here it is in two parts on You Tube:


This is brilliant stuff.  I hope Democratic consultants learn from this.  When you have the material, use it and don't pull punches.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
