New pro-Obama ad blasts Romney over shuttered Indiana plant, NewsCore -- June 23, 2012

The Priorities USA Action ad features Mike Earnest, who worked at the paper company Ampad in Marion, Indiana. Bain acquired Ampad in 1992; the company filed for bankruptcy in 2000.

"Out of the blue one day, we were told to build a 30-foot stage," Earnest says in the ad. "Just days later, all three shifts were told to assemble in the warehouse."

"A group of people walked out on that stage, and told us that the plant is now closed, and all of you are fired," he continues. "I looked both ways, I looked at the crowd, and we all just lost our jobs. We don't have an income."

"Turns out that when we built that stage, it was like building my own coffin," Earnest concludes. "And it just made me sick."

"If Mitt Romney wins, the middle class loses," the final on-screen text reads.

The truth hurts, I guess.  

Not that Mitt Romney, or Fox News, understands either concept.

Mitt Romney and Bain Capital drove a profitable company into bankruptcy. They made more than $100 million profit.

If Mitt Romney wins, the middle class loses.

Repeat it with me now ...

If Mitt Romney wins, the middle class loses.

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.
