It appears Obama campaign is...gasp...lying about Soptic ad (UPDATED)



LINK

quote:

Asked about the Priorities spot on MSNBC Wednesday morning, Robert Gibbs said he doesn’t “know the specifics” while Stephanie Cutter said on CNN: “I don’t know the facts about when Mr. Soptic’s wife got sick or the facts about his health insurance.”

And Jen Psaki told reporters on Air Force One that “we don't' have any knowledge of the story of the family,” according to Yahoo! News.

But Cutter hosted an Obama campaign conference call in May in which Soptic told reporters the very story featured in the Priorities spot.


Emphasis mine

I heard the recording of the call. This one was coordinated, by the Administration. Bet nothing comes of it because it came from the left. Just spiralling out of control. Chicago politics in the White house, like everyone said.

Compare the shots from the dead wife super pac ad to the other ads he's appeared in for the Obama campaign. Same shirt, same background, same lighting.

In case any of our skeptical liberals cares to listen as well...

look to the middle right of the page and click "play."

I don't know about you guys but I really respect a guy who uses his wife's death to further a political cause.

As this is also his 2nd ad for Obama, maybe he's just a media w#@re

update...can you say "deflection"?

quote:

Reached for comment, Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt reiterated that the campaign "didn't produce" the ad and tried to shift the attention to Democratic criticisms of Romney's business record.

"Joe Soptic suffered when he lost his job in the aftermath of the GST Steel plant closing, and no one is denying that he discussed that when he appeared in a campaign advertisement and on a conference call," LaBolt said by email.

"The important point here is that Mitt Romney's campaign is based solely on his experience as a corporate buyout specialist, and while he has been quick to claim he created jobs, he refuses to accept responsibility for the jobs that were lost and workers that were impacted," the spokesman said.


That's right...the important point is that Romney killed this guy's wife. NOT that we are coordinating with a superPAC in blatant violation of the law, and got caught lying about it.

I don't know whether this qualifies as a Jedi "mind trick" or is the equivalent of the Craig James allegedly killing five prostitutes while at SMU story.

Didn't Romney net a positive in job creation. He couldn't save them all. But Obama will lose 4.5 million jobs while creating 500,000 and run on the fact that he created 500,000 new jobs.

This is so wrong that even the Morning Joe crew this morning was ripping the White House for not admitting this was worse than a low blow. They even said that if the WH doesn't come out with some kind of statement criticizing the ad then it would hurt Obama in the future.

Maybe there's hope yet for the MJ bunch. I will not hold my breath.

So he was never Governor of a state as well? So all he ever did was be a corporater buyout specialist?
