Men Interviewed for Anti-Romney Movie Say
They Were Taken Grossly Out of Context
He emphasized, "It is critical the Republican nominee emerge from this primary campaign un-bloodied, so that he or she can make the case against President Obama from a position of strength."
While many of us believe that an important purpose of a primary is to vet the candidates and to accurately present them to the public, almost all agree that blatant lies should be absolutely avoided.
Evidently Gingrich's Super PAC didn't get the message. Their anti-Romney movie is full of lies and distortions. And Gingrich’s minions have invested millions in South Carolina, running continuous ads based on that movie and other distortions of Romney's record.
Mike Baxley and Tommy Jones, two men interviewed in the movie, have come forward to set the record straight. They said, among other things:
* The filmmaker told them they were being interviewed about big corporations taking over small U.S. companies. Mike and Tommy weren't even talking about Bain.
* They were treated well by Bain, and were grateful for the raises and promotions they received.
* The parts of the movie when they talk about hardships and insurance came after Bain had left.
* The hardest time was when they tried to start a business of their own.
But how can Newt win elections making a movie that says that?
