Busted: Team Obama Caught in Blatant Lie About 'Cancer' Ad

Step one – The Obama campaign claims no knowledge of Joe Soptic’s story while refusing to denounce a shockingly offensive and false political ad produced by their former colleague’s pro-Obama SuperPAC:

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.”

Step two – The coordinated lie goes down in flames:

But Cutter hosted an Obama campaign conference call in May in which Soptic told reporters the very story featured in the Priorities spot. Both the campaign and the Priorities USA Action said there was no coordination about Soptic’s appearances. In the campaign’s ad, Soptic speaks only about the plant. In the Priorities spot, he tells the personal story he relayed during the Obama campaign conference call. On the May 14 Obama campaign call, Soptic detailed his wife’s illness and death.

    Has obama told this country the truth about anything??? What about his Birth Certificate???

  4. undunder says:

    Obama’s mantra seems to be, “Never tell the truth when a lie will work better.” Pathetic piece of crap. This creature has nothing but narcissistic aspirations and self-serving platitudes. And he wants to transform America in his own image??????? Sadly, willfully, blissfully ignorant voters may just help him do that. Wonder what they will do when he can no longer extract enough blood money from taxpayers to pay off his voters?

      By then he would have named himself king & it wouldn’t matter. Beware on election day, so many dead people will be voting multiple times & if that doesn’t do it, then “soreasses” company in spain will count the obummer votes multiple times to make up for it. How the “7734″ did the libs get this set up to count the votes in spain? All states had better count the votes before submitting them, otherwise we will have a lifetime of “obutplug”.

      undunder: What Obama does is follow the Socialist tactic of telling a lie to make it sound like the truth and it has been around for decades.
      You are right about those voters who blindly follow him because if he wins another term, all their entitlements will be gone as there will be no money to support them.This is exactly what he wants to happen so he can declare Martial Law and the Federal Government in control of everything and transformed to a Socialist government. His executive orders and the EPA mandates are taking down the economy and our sorry Congress is sitting on their hands and allowing it to happen.

    If this so called campaign doesn’t wake the Independents who put this lousy pos scum into office,NOTHING WILL

  6. Hookem63 says:

    Romney should announce that he will reveal his tax returns in question when he becomes President, ala BHO showing his long form ‘birth certificate’ after he became President. Or when Obama and DOJ Holder release all the documents subpoened in the ‘Fast and Furious’ scandal. Dems hypocrisy is mind boggling.

  7. Lies from the first word to the last. Even HuffPo was set back with this whopper. Wanna play ‘who’s responsible for dead people’? Let’s talk fast & furious. Even if 0bama himself isn’t involved (not likely, this goes to the top) his homey Holder WAS involved, directly accountable to 0bama, hand picked for the position, ordering an operation that has killed hundreds of Mexicans and two American border agents. No lies, just facts, nowhere to hide from it.

    My first reaction to the ad was: you would have to have an I.Q. smaller than your shoe size to believe this bodewash. The ad left out a few facts.

    The Washington Post gave the ad
    four Pinocchios, the same rating they gave Reid’s comments on the Senate floor.
    It seems the Obama slime machine conveniently overlooked a few little factoids:
    1) of the $75 million put into the original 1993 deal by several investors,
    Bain Capital put in a mere $8 million; 2) Romney left Bain Capital in 1999, a
    full two years before the GST plant was closed; 3) Mrs. Soptic had health
    insurance through her own employer after her husband lost his job; and 4) she
    did not die until 2006, five years after the closure of GST Steel, and a full seven years after Romney left. But, hey ! You have to put out the pap and bodewash to get the Obamabots in line and on board.

  10. I am not surprised by the following: The Obama campaign claims no knowledge of Joe Soptic’s story while refusing to denounce a shockingly offensive and false political ad produced by their former colleague’s pro-Obama SuperPAC.
