Romney's Two-Pronged Response to Anti-Bain Attacks

NASHUA -- A super-PAC bankrolled by allies of Newt Gingrich is taking a $3.4 million page out of the Democratic playbook.
The group, Winning Our Future, is planning a media blitz in South Carolina that attacks Mitt Romney as a ruthless corporate titan who profited on the backs of hundreds of laid-off workers.  If that attack on his career at Bain Capital sounds familiar, it's because the Democratic Party has been waging it for weeks, trotting out bitterly unemployed people at press conferences who blame Romney for their predicament.
At a campaign event in Anderson, S.C., Rick Perry also took up the anti-Bain attack. "I have no doubt that Mitt Romney was worried about pink slips - whether he was going to have enough of them to hand out,'' he quipped on Monday.
But will the anti-Bain attacks work in a Republican primary? And how will Romney respond?
