This is possibly the most extreme negative ad we’ve seen in the primary campaign thus far.
The ad accuses Romney of killing corporations while an executive at private-equity firm Bain Capital, and reasons that since Romney has previously likened corporations to people, he is therefore a “serial killer.”
The ad’s narrator explains “As head of Bain Capital he bought companies, carved them up and got rid of what he couldn’t use. If Mitt Romney really believes ‘corporations are people, my friend’ than Mitt Romney is a serial killer. He’s Mitt the Ripper.”
This line of attack is incredibly ‘un-Republican’ and much more akin to the sort of negative ad that Democrat candidates might typically use. The spot will no doubt have Obama supporters licking their lips.
