    I would just run the clip from the secret recordings where Romney talks about investing in a factory in China surrounded by barbed fences (and yes I would cut the clip right there) and run it over and over and OVER with graphics on the screen showing stats on how Bain pioneered outsourcing. Then I would end it with him promising to get tough on China. I would run this ad in every state in the Midwest (even Indiana, Missouri, and the Nebraska 2nd district) and watch as Romney imploded.

      that I distinctly remember hearing that part of the tape a month or two ago - someone on here even posted a link to it. Presumably therefore someone has been sitting on this for a while and waiting for a more deadly moment to release the more obviously explosive parts.

      However, it also makes me puzzled that the Romney campaign was apparently caught by surprise and had no effective response at their hastily-arranged press conference. If part of the tape had been made public they must surely have known it was only a matter of time before the rest of it came out. Or what? They didn't think there was anything wrong with the rest of it? Romney forgot what he said? His campaign wasn't even aware of the publication of the other part of the recording?

      Bunch of rank amateurs.
