Obama campaign ‘just beginning’ attacks on Romney at Bain Capital

Despite criticism from some within the Democratic Party, the Obama campaign said it was “just beginning” to roll out attacks against Mitt Romney over his career as an executive at Bain Capital.

“This is a discussion that we’re just beginning, that extends to his public sector tenure as well in terms of applying that economic philosophy,” said Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt, in a conference call with reporters on Monday.

“If you look at the regional coverage, particularly in the industrial Midwest, this is a very different conversation in battleground states than it is among elites in the northeast corridor,” he continued. “And I think the notion that Romney and his partners always made a profit even when the companies went under and even when the workers lost their jobs and their pensions and their healthcare has raised serious concerns in many states across the country.”
