Obama ignores Booker, launches new ad challenging Romney’s Bain record

Updated

President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign is (fortunately) ignoring Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s “nauseating” remark and staying on the offense on Mitt Romney’s record as a job-destroying corporate raider at Bain Capital.   

In a video being released today, the Obama campaign zeroes in on a Marion, Indiana, company, American Pad & Paper, also known as Ampad.  

The ad says Romney and his partners multiplied their investment in the office products plant by 20 times while the company went onto lose some 1,500 jobs and went bankrupt by 2000.   

Former Ampad worker Randy Johnson calls Romney’s performance “just the opposite of Robin Hood.” 

Yesterday on NBC’s Meet The Press, Booker, an Obama surrogate, surprised a lot of people by criticizing last week’s attack ad on Romney’s Bain record at GST Steel, calling it “nauseating.”

Sorry Mayor Booker, but Bain did to American workers is what we find to be really nauseating!

Watch the video:

Ed will have a lot to say about Booker’s remarks tonight on The Ed Show at 8pET on msnbc with former Ampad worker Randy Johnson!
