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.
