Obama Super PAC uses Gingrich, Perry against Romney

This is inevitable but extremely tough -- clip-after-clip of Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry absolutely pummeling Mitt Romney during the primary over his record at Bain Capital.

The most brutal quote in the Obama Super PAC's web ad comes via Rick Perry.

"I happen to think that companies like Bain Capital could've come in and helped these companies if they truly were venture capitalists.

But they're not. They're vulture capitalists."

Priorities USA Action, a Super PAC supporting Barack Obama, put the spot together.

Btw, I don't think the Super PAC even included Perry's most searing comment.

It came in January on Fox News.

"Mitt Romney's going to have a hard time coming into South Carolina and making the people here think that he's anything other than just a rich Wall Streeter who took advantage of their businesses.

"People lost their jobs, they lost their pensions, they lost a lot.

.... shutting down these businesses -- with the only real reason that most people can see -- was so that Bain Capital could profit and he could get richer.

That's not going to sell in South Carolina."
