Lying Obama Ads

Senior Obama campaign officials have refused to disavow a controversial and greatly misleading TV ad by the pro-Obama super PAC, Priorities USA Action, that does more than suggest Mitt Romney had a role in a woman’s death.

The ad, released Tuesday, features former GST Steel worker Joe Soptic of Kansas City, Mo., who lost his job and health benefits when Romney’s Bain Capital shuttered the factory in 2001. Soptic recounts how his wife became seriously ill shortly after “my family lost their health care” and died three weeks later. “I do not think Mitt Romney realizes what he’s done to anyone, and, furthermore, I do not think Mitt Romney is concerned,” Soptic says. Watch this ad, then read the follow on below, and you be the judge.

Various fact-checkers has since pointed out that Soptic’s wife did not die until 2006, five years after GST Steel closed and what? 5 years after Romeny left?, and that she had health insurance coverage through her own employer for part of that time. It’s also unclear whether having insurance coverage through GST Steel would have meant better prevention or detection of the cancer that ultimately killed her.

In separate appearances on morning talk shows, senior Obama campaign adviser Robert "I Lie When My Lips Move" Gibbs and deputy Obama campaign manager Stephanie Cutter were pressed on whether the insinuation that Romney contributed to Soptic’s death crossed a line.  Both distanced themselves from the super PAC, asserting independence from the group, and claimed to know nothing about Soptic’s case.

This is yet another case of Obama and his machine running their mouths without regards to the facts. Blatanntly lying to the American people. This should scare everyone, liberal, conservative and independents alike. If Obama and his campgaign machine can lie and lie, what will he do to this country in another four years of power?
