Pro-Gingrich Super PAC to release 30 minute documentary blasting Romney

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

This is when things get fun.  Interestingly, the documentary depicts Romney as "more ruthless than Wall Street."  I just find it interesting that Gingrich, of all people (well, a Super PAC "associated" with Gingrich), it smearing Wall Street.  That's about the best tribute to Occupy Wall Street you could make, that even Newt Gingrich is trying to climb on board the message machine.  The video even includes the hecklers going after Romney for claiming corporations are people.  Those hecklers certainly weren't Republicans.  This is seriously fun.

From the Daily Beast:

The effort to derail Mitt Romney’s presidential quest heightened dramatically on Friday when a super PAC associated with Newt Gingrich outbid all comers for the rights to a scathing 30-minute attack video depicting Romney as a greedy, job-killing corporate raider “more ruthless than Wall Street.”

In a season filled with negative ads and rhetorical crossfire, the striking feature of the film, aside from its mini-documentary length, is its authorship. The film was made by Jason Killian Meath, a former associate of Romney’s top strategists, Stuart Stevens and Russ Schriefer. Meath had worked for the Romney campaign in 2008, creating much of the ad content for that failed effort. He left Stevens and Schriefer’s firm, SSG, in 2010. Meath declined to comment on his project, referring inquiries to the pro-Gingrich PAC Winning Our Future.
