New Video Attacks Romney

(By JIM RUTENBERG, NYTimes.com) - Priorities USA Action, the pro-Obama super PAC, is marking the start of the yearlong countdown to Election Day 2012 by releasing a video entirely devoted to attacking former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts, painting him as a cold-hearted businessman disconnected from the pain of ordinary Americans.

The video is clearly intended to rile up the deflated Democratic base of liberal voters and activists, waving the equivalent of a red cape before their eyes: the Republican strategist Karl Rove, the Fox News Channel and Tea Party protesters all make appearances. But it specifically rips Mr. Romney, including video from his statement that “corporations are people,’’ that the government should not “try and stop the foreclosure process – let it hit the bottom’’ and that it should “let Detroit go bankrupt.”
