Nice: Democrats Defend Bain in New Romney Ad

Let's face it: This spot became 100 percent inevitable the moment Cory Booker opened his mouth on Meet the Press, but its still nice to see the alacrity and skill with which Team Romney executed.  Behold, the official 'Democrats dissent from Obama's stupid anti-Bain demagoguery' campaign ad:


David Axelrod has slapped back at Booker, who hastily cut a hostage video-style (partial) retraction of his MTP remarks, but the damage has been done.  Every time The One comes after Romney on Bain, Republicans can cite three significant Obama supporters who have explicitly condemned his line of attack.  Bain itself has entered the fray, as well, pointing out that their track record is very strong indeed:

Bain shoots back: "During Bain Capital’s ownership, revenues grew in 80 percent of the more than 350 companies in which we have invested.”

So they're batting .800, in baseball parlance.  Can't have that now, can we?  And in case you were wondering, yes, the Romney campaign is also fundraising off of this kerfuffle.

UPDATE - ABC News says the Obama camp is in "full damage control mode" over its Bain attacks:


The Obama campaign is in full damage-control mode one day after Newark Mayor Cory Booker publicly derided Democrats’ assault on presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney over his record at Bain Capital. Chief Obama strategist David Axelrod today publicly rebuked Booker, a popular and high-profile surrogate for the campaign, saying he was “just wrong.”

If I were a dishonest liberal, I might loudly ask if a white man calling a black official "just wrong" is some sort of "racist dogwhistle."
