Obama-supporting Super PAC American Bridge has released a new ad, “Romnopoly.

The ad functions as a closing argument that American Bridge and its sister PAC Priorities USA have been making for months: Romney games the system to his advantage without regard for workers.

The ad even features clips from previous commercials featuring employees of companies purchased by Bain talking about how they were fired summarily when the private equity firm took over.

A recent Gallup poll found that Romney’s strengths, according to voters, are his economic policies and that he’s a good businessman. However, those are national numbers. It would be interesting to see how they compare to Ohio and other swing states where Super PACs have been focusing their critique on Romney’s business career.

  • Romney is a good businessman, in the same way that Dracula is a good blood donor.

  • I so look forward to the day the election is over, and after the President wins, some one will make a movie about the REAL Willard, and the most dishonest campaign in history for the most amoral candidate in memory.

    • Put in a script. Like the 11 commandments. Thou shall not cut Bain.

    • They already did – it’s called Wall Street and Wall Street 2: The money never sleeps

    • God spared us, don’t you know, from the likes of Romney the Liar!

    Not all business people are the same. Romney’s job was to create wealth–nothing wrong with that. Unless it’s at the expense of the workers’ jobs and your country’s economic security, which iwhen you move all the jobs oversea.

      Even assuming that Romney’s deals made money, is making money the objective of running the U.S. government? Is the federal government supposed to make a profit? OK, it’s certainly not supposed to end up in the red (and it’s deeply in the red), but making a profit, especially the way Bain makes its profits, is not how the government is supposed to work. We’re all stakeholders in the USA, and Romney ‘s experience has been in stiffing some stakeholders, destroying others, and running off with everyone else’s money. How does that equate with responsible government?

    • He didn’t give a crap. His 47% speech proved that he was up to no good and thank God for whomever put that cell phone on! Saved our asses and I think the powers that be were with us on that night.

  • ROMNEY FEMA
    Three times, Mitt and Ryan publicly demanded that the federal government only disburse disaster relief funding if Congress agreed to off setting budgets cuts elsewhere. This would hold desperately needed disaster relief funding hostage unless Congress agreed to cuts elsewhere in the budget, an extraordinarily difficult prospect even in normal times..These same so called sane men want to defund Planned Parenthood which prevents more abortions than any unit in America. It provides preventative health care for millions of the poorest of the poor women. A Christian nation???? What would Christ say??

      He’d say: Jesus Mitt! What Bible do you read…?

      • The crazed version of Joe Smith…

    • I think, Clarence, he would chase them out of the temple with whip in hand as he did 2000 years and more ago. I am constantly puzzled that these fruitcakes out here keep “quoting” the Bible and referring to Christ when he wouldn’t have approved their miserliness at all. Plus, it is not like people are stealing from them…rather they are leeches on the masses of society upon whom they depend on for their very existence.

    This is a great ad! Haven’t seen it any where but here. It should air numerous times in swing states. Speaking of ads, all I have seen are pro Obama ads and those have been on cable stations which air nationwide. Last night, I viewed a pro Romney ad on a local national affiliate for the first time in this election. I live in a southern red state and there have been no political ads on our local affiliates for any candidates. Why now air a pro Romney ad in my local area? Could it be that early voting numbers are not as high or going in the direction the Romney campaign would like to see? I can’t think of a reason why any money would be spent on ads in my state for Romney other than the fact that there have been rumors of the demographics shifting more to a purple state instead of deep red.
    Does this possibly bode well for Obama? I hope so.

  • Man. How come we never get these commercials in CT. All we get are Linda McMahon/Chris Murphy ones! That’s what we get for living here where our Republican Governors and Mayors use the Federal Prison system as their retirement homes.

  • Ant Duke

    What a great AD! Sure does describe the playing fields…did I miss Community Chest…?

  • JUST LIKE POKER! ONE MAN TAKES IT ALL! HE NEVER LEARNED TO JUST FOLD THEM AND WALK AWAY! DO YOU WANT MORE OF HIS $20,00 PER JOB, FROM THIS LAIR!
    ROMNOPOLY AND RYANIZATION OF THIS GREAT NATION? IT’S YOUR LIFE! IS YOUR LIFE INSURANCE PAID UP?THIS TWO BOZO GOPs ARE WORST THAN THE LAST TWO GOPs!

    • Sand_Cat

      Don’t know that I’d go that far. Mitt and Paul may be more dishonest than George Bush (if so, only by the tiniest margin), but Bush’s lies killed people.

    Where has the president been after the disaster hit the Northeastern states???Like he promised that they would be taken care of, another empty promise. Since his photo op as Sandy wound down, we hear nothing about what is being done to care for the victims. Red Cross and Fema were noticeable absent. Volunteers fed,provided needed supplies to so many of the victims. Guess he will defend his inactions like they have been doing with Benghazigate. At lease Romney had a business career which is more than BHO had, what the hell is a community organizer,other than someone directing all the apt. buildings to friends??? This in response to Clarence Swimney
