Get Romney: Republican rivals prepare for 'bare knuckle' fight with frontrunner
Mitt Romney's opponents set to launch no-holds-barred attack ad campaign as race moves to South Carolina
by Paul Harris guardian.co.uk, Wednesday 11 January 2012

As the fight for the Republican party's presidential nomination departs the frozen hills of New Hampshire for the balmier climes of South Carolina, the temperature is not the only thing heating up.

A brutal battle is on the horizon as opponents to the frontrunner and former Massachusetts governor, Mitt Romney, prepare to launch an all-out negative ad war. In particular, Newt Gingrich and his allies have vowed to stop Romney with a no-holds-barred media campaign.

Supporters of the former House of Representatives speaker in a group called Winning Our Future, which is not officially tied to Gingrich's campaign, have bought a lengthy online documentary about Romney's time as head of private equity firm Bain Capital. When Mitt Came to Town portrays Romney and his firm as ruthless corporate raiders whose actions have cost many Americans their jobs and ruined communities.

The film is due to be released as the battle for South Carolina begins in earnest after the New Hampshire primary.

With the help of a $5m (£3.23m) cheque from billionaire casino-owning supporter Sheldon Adelson, Winning Our Future is reported to have booked $3.4m of air time in South Carolina. In a state with cheap broadcast ad rates, the film will run almost constantly in the days before voting.

There is no more suitable state for the Republican scrap to get nasty. The first in the south to hit the polls, on 21 January, it has a long and deserved reputation for political dirty tricks.

"South Carolina is known as the absolute nastiest and most bare knuckles kind of place for campaigning," said Prof Scott Huffmon, a political scientist at Winthrop University, South Carolina...

That's a good video from the

That's a good video from the Gingrich camp.

Now all we need is a 25 minute video detailing Gingrich's many acts of political whoredom.

Ron Paul will be the only man left standing.

Get this edited without gingrich ad and spread like wildfire,

otherwise no go!

Take these www.3StepsTowardFreedom.com to assist Ron Paul in becoming our next Commander In Chief. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-480OMya3U

They say...

...Newt's Super PAC should be releasing the full 27 minute version of this video ad in the next few days... They already shared the full version with some media outlets, as Bloomberg has apparently seen the full version. I'm personally looking forward to watching it.

This is wonderful

because this crucifies Mittens and the Grinch is most likely not going to benefit from this either.



I personally experienced Bain/Catterton Empire Building/Destruck

Bain,Catterton, OSI Way less jobs and morale collapse. At OSI, they called it PEP, Partner Equity Program, destroyed the foundation of the company in one pen-stroke. Ask any talent who left OSI because of this. #TalentPurge

One day, I'm gonna' change my name to Dale Lee Paul

If you want the final nail in Romney's coffin...Bain/Mckinsey


Real journalism will put these two together.

Then it's over.

One day, I'm gonna' change my name to Dale Lee Paul





I expect to see Outback Steakhouse (OSI) in this.

Haven't seen a second of this, but experienced Bain first hand

One day, I'm gonna' change my name to Dale Lee Paul

Anyone wanna try and walk me through this

Newt has $20M to spend, and he is focusing it on Romney. Why would they let Newt's PAC takedown Romney? The TPTB will get their panties in a bunch.

This is just helping Ron Paul make sure that Romney doesn't walk away with it by splitting neocon/big-gov votes among Romney and Newt.

This is too good to be true, so where is the catch?

Are the ads against Mitt purposefully going to be "soft"

Newt still thinks he can win

Newt still thinks he can win South Carolina

the possibilities...

I was thinking Newt would drop out after SC or FL, but that may not be the case.

It may be better if Newt wins FL (preventing Romney from 50 delegates in FL) but stays in race beyond FL.


ohhhh, this is getting good!

Is it wrong that I'm suddenly rooting for Gettingrich?



What is begun in anger, ends in shame.
