(Newser) – Let the Democrats' Romney-Bain attacks begin. The Obama campaign comes out swinging against Mitt Romney this week with a new attack painting him as a job killer, Talking Points Memo reports. The new campaign, featuring a two-minute ad airing in five states, a longer six-minute video available online, and the website, focuses on Romney’s time at Bain Capital. The specific target: the company's acquisition of GST Steel, which was later closed. "It was like a vampire," says one former GST employee of Bain in the ad. "Came in and sucked the life out of us."
