The former Massachusetts governor has been the subject of numerous drive-bys from Democrats ever since his New York Times Op-ed “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt,” which sounds particularly cold when repeated over and over — as it is in the newest video.


As a video produced by DNCs “RapidDemReponse” team who are looking ahead to the actual 2012 race and seem to expect Romney to be the main competition.

A recent Fox News poll has Romney at the top of the Republican pile with 23 percent, ahead of  his closest competition, the non-candidate Rudy Giuliani, by 10 points. In a race against Obama, Romney also fares best, down just six points from the president, according to an average compiled by Real Clear Politics. Though still early in the season, runner-up Tim Pawlenty loses to Obama by about 14 points.
