UPDATE: Mitt Romney won the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday. You’re all fired.
The ironic conservative criticism of accused corporate raider Mitt Romney has intensified in the run-up to Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary. Romney certainly didn’t help himself on Monday when he gaffed “I like being able to fire people” amid the outcry among his fellow presidential candidates.
Newt Gingrich’s SuperPAC Winning Our Future recently released a mini-documentary highlighting Romney’s record of liquidating companies and firing workers in the name of profits.
And now a Newt Gingrich dream sequence…
The Gingrich campaign, trying to drive the nail in Romney’s coffin, has continued to sink its teeth into Romney by spotlighting his past as a proud corporate raider. At a hastily called press conference on Tuesday, Gingrich proudly displayed magazine advertisements that he said were dug up by his staffers and demonstrated the disconnect between the former Bain Capital head and the average American.
Here’s a close-up of what those ads looked like in Fortune:
After making multiple copies of the ads available to the press, Gingrich closed the short conference by saying “Blue Horseshoe loves Anacott Steel” and left the podium smiling smugly.
Just a dream. Just a dream.
