Given the candidate’s increasing momentum in the Republican primaries, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) would probably be going hard at former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney right about now were it not for his fellow Republicans basically doing their job for them.

It’s now grown to such an extent that the DNC isn’t even making their own ads anymore: they’re just slapping together Web clips of Republicans attacking Romney for being a “vulture capitalist,” and publishing them on YouTube under the title, “Don’t Just Take Our Word For It.”

For Obama supporters convinced of the former governor’s inevitability, the DNC’s latest compilation is a political gold mine, and a signal that it’s going to be a very long election year for team Romney.
