Priorities USA Action has done it again! Hard on the heals of their Building Stage Was Like Building My Own Coffin, today they released a new ad called Briefcase, that delivers another body blow to the Romney campaign.

Priorities USA Action doesn't have the kind of funds that Karl Rove and the Koch Brothers have to flood their negative ads against Obama on the airwaves, so this ad will air in Colorado, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia where it is sure to resonate with swing voters. Please do what you can to help spread this ad around to other areas of the country via email, Facebook and Twitter.

Transcript:

Mitt Romney, the business man. Take a look at his record. Romney bought companies. Drowned them in debt. Many went bankrupt. Thousands of workers lost jobs, benefits and pensions. But for every company he drove into the ground, Romney averaged a 92 million dollar profit. Now he says his business experience would make him a good president? If Romney wins, the middle class loses.
Appearing on screen while narrator speaks:

● Romney Bought Companies (New York Times, 6/22/12)

● Drowned them in Debt  (New York Times, 6/22/12)

Note: This is a republish of this diary from earlier today because with all the discussion about the Health Care decision, it fell off rather quickly, and I think it is important to keep up the momentum, hitting Mitt Romney on Bain Capital.

All of the Priorities USA Action videos are available at their YouTube Channel. Please, share them as much and as often as you can via Facebook, Twitter and email.

The one place that President Obama has a huge advantage over Romney is in social media (Study finds Obama 'blows Romney out of the water' on Facebook and New Data Show Obama Ahead in Social-Media Race). We're battling tons of cash from the Right, but there's nothing as powerful as word of mouth communication. If you can't afford to donate dollars, you can afford to donate a little time helping to spread the message.

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.
