Earlier we reported the vicious ad from the Obama Pac which purports to link Mitt Romney to the death of a steel worker, Joe Soptic, lost his job after Romney's former firm closed the plant. Never mind that it had been years after Romney had given up control of Bain (or that Bain was actually being run by an Obama fund raiser). Never mind that the man's wife contracted cancer and died five years AFTER the man lost his steel worker job. Never mind that the woman who died had health insurance from her job several years after the steel worker was laid off.
In Obama's campaign, they don't let facts get in the way of big smear. And if they can find a patsy like Joe Soptic willing to go on television and deliberately LIE about it then so what?
That's bad enough but not only did Joe Soptic deliberately mislead people about his story, the Obama campaign may have broken federal campaign law by coordinating with Soptic. When asked about any link between the two "We have nothing, no involvement, with any ads that are done by Priorities USA. We don't have any knowledge of the story of the family," Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on Wednesday.
Obama Campaign spokespersons Stephanie Cutter and Robert Gibbs both denied any knowledge of the facts surrounding Soptic's claims. Yet, there is a recording of Stephanie Cutter with Soptic discussing the issue in a May conference call with reporters.
Here's the story:
The Obama Pac put out an ad that is full of lies. And the Obama Campaign lied about their connection to the story. For a White House in which truth is relative to which side of the political divide you are on this is nothing new. But do Americans want a President who can't tell the truth and doesn't seem to know what that means?
