Democratic National Committee Video

WASHINGTON--GOP presumptive nominee Mitt Romney battled Sen. John McCain (R-Az.) unsuccessfully in 2008 for the presidential nomination. McCain is now backing Romney--but the videos of all his 2008 comments during the primary disparaging Romney are ripe pickings for the Obama team. And they are taking in a harvest.

On Friday, as Romney appears at a Republican National Committee State Chair meeting in Scottsdale, in McCain's home state, the Democratic National Committee released a video using McCain's "greatest hits" against Romney--criticizing him for flip-flopping and laying off people while a private business executive.

Melanie Rousell, the DNC National Press Secretary said in a statement, "Sen. John McCain will introduce Mitt Romney today at the RNC's unity gathering in Arizona and while we don't know exactly what he'll say, we thought it might help to look at what he's said over the past few years about Mitt Romney.

"The DNC released a new web video, titled John McCain on Mitt Romney, which takes a look at a few of McCain's greatest hits on Romney - from his record as governor, to his time in the private sector and his values.

"He's already said so much - we look forward to what he has to say next," she said.
