We Watch Newt's 'King Of Bain' Attack On Mitt So You Don't Have To | Jason Linkins | Posted 03.12.2012 | Home

Newt Gingrich has fired many shots at Mitt Romney's political past in an attempt to tear him down. But what no one could have possibly expected, and what no one on the right could possibly have wanted, was for Gingrich to launch an all-out assault on Romney's Bain Capital roots, and eviscerate the candidate for being a predatory capitalist. But that is exactly what Gingrich has done, and done with astounding thoroughness, by acquiring the rights to a 28-minute attack documentary that's come to be known as King Of Bain. Made "by former Romney supporters," the result is a potent polemic that paints Romney as a dark-hearted, vicious-minded, boodle-craving technocrat-privateer.
