Skip to comments.Nice: Democrats Defend Bain in New Romney Ad
Posted on 05/21/2012 3:06:14 PM PDT by Kaslin
Let's face it: This spot became 100 percent inevitable the moment Cory Booker opened his mouth on Meet the Press, but its still nice to see the alacrity and skill with which Team Romney executed. Behold, the official 'Democrats dissent from Obama's stupid anti-Bain demagoguery' campaign ad:
Big Bain Backfire
David Axelrod has slapped back at Booker, who hastily cut a hostage video-style (partial) retraction of his MTP remarks, but the damage has been done. Every time The One comes after Romney on Bain, Republicans can cite three significant Obama supporters who have explicitly condemned his line of attack. Bain itself has entered the fray, as well, pointing out that their track record is very strong indeed:
Bain shoots back: "During Bain Capital’s ownership, revenues grew in 80 percent of the more than 350 companies in which we have invested.”
So they're batting .800, in baseball parlance. Can't have that now, can we? And in case you were wondering, yes, the Romney campaign is also fundraising off of this kerfuffle.
UPDATE - ABC News says the Obama camp is in "full damage control mode" over its Bain attacks:
The Obama campaign is in full damage-control mode one day after Newark Mayor Cory Booker publicly derided Democrats’ assault on presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney over his record at Bain Capital. Chief Obama strategist David Axelrod today publicly rebuked Booker, a popular and high-profile surrogate for the campaign, saying he was “just wrong.”
If I were a dishonest liberal, I might loudly ask if a white man calling a black official "just wrong" is some sort of "racist dogwhistle."
great ad put out by Romney on this.
Choice is fairly clear. Someone who has been the CEO of a major corporation, or someone with no business experience whatsoever.
Hmmm... an independent PR mafya... Ususally democrates and republicans pick from the same PR industry pool which Soros is seeking to controling via overtake and banning any competition.
Watch for antispeech legislation to fix that very soon... with McCain supporting it.

Corey Booker is not really black, according to his mayoral predecessor and convicted felon Sharpe James.
You’re brave putting anything pro Romney on FR.
Our Dear Leader and his team have a real conundrum on their hands; how to rip capitalism yet still get donations from those who have really benefited from it.
Romney wins another skirmish. Win enough of these and you win the war.
How is Al Gore’s Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers is doing?
Booker is a white man of African descent
Paying minimum wage for temporary ACORN workers for Voter fraud and Bank Presidents blackmail.
It’s a throwaway.
The left is now going to come out and say Bain is off the table. Something about how wrong it is to bring up the past.
However, they will also demand that Reverend Wright is off the table.
And the RINOS will agree.
I didn’t realize that Harold Ford, Jr., was an “Uncle Tom.”
“Obama Isn’t Working” over a picture of an umemployment line.
I have to grudgingly admit that’s a damn good double-entendre slogan they came up with.
Romney sucks regardless.....dear God please let someone conservative step up. Virgil Goode is good enough but there are some better out there.
Harold Ford Jr was always fair. His relatives on the other hand were crooks
If the PAC’s were smart (I suspect they are smarter than the RNC) they would point out that Bambi's Admin has the least experienced Business minds/experience on his Staff/Cabinet than nearly any President, even Carter.
They should run commercials pointing this out, and end them with a picture of a Lemonade stand manned by Eight year old kids and point out that Bambi hasn't even ran one of these.
Hate to break this to you, the primary is over...
And the RINOS will agree.
Romney doesn't need the Wright story; Obama's disastrous term is more than enough fodder.
Since when? Romney has not been officially nominated and even still nobody wants him so who cares? I would rather Virgil Goode or Sarah Palin. I might even vote for myself.
