The Democraticv National Committee is out with a new video this morning looking back on Mitt Romney’s stumbles this past year as he’s fought to reach 1,144 delegates to be the Republican nominee.
The video takes the form of a Facebook timeline, and includes gaffes such as his “Corporations are people” line as well as clips of Romney’s former opponents attacking him on Bain capital.
From DNC Communications Director Brad Woodhouse:
In honor of Mitt Romney securing the delegates he needs to clinch the GOP nomination for President - after six years of trying and millions of dollars spent - we’re releasing a new video of our version of Mitt Romney’s Facebook time line for the last year. In that time we’ve learned that Mitt Romney and his brand of Romney Economics is wrong for the middle class.
From declaring “corporations are people” and we should let the foreclosure process hit bottom to saying he isn’t concerned about the poor and likes firing people Mitt Romney’s time line shows he would return to the same failed policies of the past and is out of touch with the needs of the middle class. And Mitt’s time line, in the words of his fellow Republicans, shows that Romney Economics - whether his time as a corporate raider dismantling companies and jobs for profit or his abysmal record as Governor of Massachusetts where he finished 47th out of 50 in jobs - would be a disaster for the American people.
And of course, there’s Donald Trump - liking an article on Mitt’s time line… about himself, naturally.
Yep, when it comes to Mitt Romney’s time line and what we’ve learned over the past year, there is little to like:
Here are some other elements that you will see in the video if you look carefully:
Did you see:
—Romney speaking to an empty Ford Field in Detroit

—Romney telling CNN that Russia is “without question our number one geopolitical foe”
—Rick Santorum wielding an Etch a Sketch
—Romney telling the AP “I have some great friends who are NASCR team owners”
—Romney squirming with Bret Baier
