Politico has found a previously un-aired advert from the Kennedy campaign, that hit Mitt where it hurt, Bain.

The ad hits hard. As Mitt is doing now, in 1994 he was running on how great a business man he was. The ad completely abolishes that claim and makes clear - you paid for Mitt's so-called success.  

Mitt Romney says he saved Bain and Company, but he didn't tell you that on the day he took over, he had his predecessor fire hundreds of employees. Or that the way the company was rescued was with a federal bailout of $10 million.
The ad also highlighted the fact that while taxpayers got bilked for $10 million,he walked away with a cool $4 million in his pocket. $4 million of your money. He didn't build that.
According to the Globe Romney's company failed to pay at least $10 million to a failed bank and the rest of us had to absorb the loss. Romney, he and others made $4 million, which cost ordinary people $10 million

The ad concludes;  

Mitt Romney: Maybe he’s just against government when it helps working men and women.
That was true then,it is true now. The only thing that Romney remained consistent on.

7:10 AM PT: Thanks for the rec Kossacks: It goes to Ted Kennedy and his campaign team, our lost lion of the senate.

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.
