Romney Campaign Slams Obama 'Hypocrisy' Over Super PAC Ad


Mitt Romney’s campaign accused President Obama of “hypocrisy” Wednesday night after the president bemoaned the “crazy” behavior of super PACs – despite the mounting furor over a controversial ad put out by the super PAC cheerleading his own re-election effort.

The president complained about the outside political groups, which often have ties to the presidential campaigns themselves, during a Colorado campaign stop. “You got these guys writing $10 million checks. You got these super PACs that are just … going crazy,” Obama said.

A stunned Romney campaign swiftly excoriated the president for the comment, considering the pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA is under fire for an ad that ties the death of a steelworker’s wife to Romney. Further, a top Obama campaign aide is now being accused of lying over what she knew about the man at the center of that ad.

“On the same day President Obama’s own campaign was caught lying about the contents of a discredited Super PAC attack ad, President Obama has the gall to warn voters of Super PACs ‘just going crazy,’” campaign spokesman Ryan Williams said. “It’s just the latest hypocrisy from the Obama campaign that is guilty of repeatedly spreading lies and distortions about Mitt Romney in a desperate attempt to distract voters from the president’s failed record.”

    OK, Gov .Romney. You wanted this nomination. Now it’s time to get with it.. Stop acting like McCain.

    • DrBarbara says:

      I agree, Ann. Gov. Romney, it’s time to take the kid gloves off and put on the boxing gloves. A couple of upper cuts, jab, jab, jab, some body blows, and POW! out for the count!

      • Victor Magilke says:

        I’m with you on that DrBarbara. A kick in Obama’s groin by Romney would be be okay with me.

    • mimi says:

      Ann Rand, you are right on!!!!!!!!!!! I hope Rommey gets more like TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i hated McCain i voted for SHARA PALIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Victor Magilke says:

      If Romney runs the same type of campaign that McCain did, he will go down the same path to defeat that McCain did.

  2. amiee says:

    This is Chicago Politics at it’s best! Mitt needs to be tough and get his message out otherwise we will get to have 4 more years of the socialsit and his agenda!

  3. oneway says:

    Quit Kissing everyone BUTT and do yourJOB if you want to be PRES.

  4. Two could play that card. 0bama insinuates Romney directly caused (suposedly) this woman’s cancer. All of it complete lies, of course. In fact this actor has made other ads for 0bama already.
    However, 0bama and crew have IN FACT directly caused the deaths of hundreds of Mexicans and two US border guards with their fast & furious game they played. No lies, all fact, nowhere to hide. WHY do we NOT use THAT?

  5. We The People says:

    All conservative media is telling Romney to get tough. I’m so frustrated with him acting like McCain the wimp. If he doesn’t man up pretty soon he’s another loser like McCain and I will be very suspicious of the GOP. You cannot accidentally have two nominees in a row who won’t hold Obama accountable. One time I would love to hear him do a right hook to Obama.
    I agree with Steve Forbes, challenge Obama to a data dump. All romney tax records for all of Obama’s sealed records.

    • Ann Rand says:

      I am getting sicker by the min…. I think they have something BIG (more lies) planneed in Phila. for this week-end.

      • guest18 says:

        What are you talking about, Ann?

      • Ann Rand says:

        I am talking about the dems. The lies that they are telling are becoming more outrageous by the minute. I think they are planning more mischief in philly this week-end. I sure hope you aren’t going.

  6. Chuck says:

    Obama does not recognize the word “lie”. If he says something that’s the way it is, any other comment is just ignored. He is just a low-life common criminal. Only way to stop his lying – VOTE for Romney.

    • Victor Magilke says:

      Obama is a pathological liar, in complete denial of his failures and criminal acts. You are right Chuck, he is a low-life, lower than reptiles.

  7. gunner48 says:

    Communism 101 Distract and discredit!

    • John says:

      This is more like a Saul Alinsky tactic. alinsky thought the commies were pansies. To alinskyites, the end always justifies the means. Beware ! By the way, Hillary is also a student of alinskyite tactics.

  8. gunner48 says:

    Hey Mitt your slips hangin, Let toughen up and get someone to play dirty if you dont have a Harry Reid in your pocket hire one . Obummer is makin you look bad and your not fighting back. You want to go out like McCain.??????

IF OBUMMER GETS IN FOR FOUR MORE YEARS THAT WILL BE THE DAY AMERICA DIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE REAL AMERICANS WHO LOVE OUR GREAT COUNTRY BETTER GET OUT AND VOTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. John says:

    This article ties in with the Obama campaign’s ridiculous ad that has a former steel worker blaming Romney because his wife die of cancer. Here are some facts they omitted.

    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 had left.

  11. Victor Magilke says:

    If Romney wants to win, he needs to get tough and solicit the help of the other popular republican leaders. With Sarah Palin campaigning for him it be a tremendous advantage. Palin is popular and tough. She is a Tiger! I can’t think of anyone I would rather have campaigning for me than Saint Sarah.

  12. I find it AMAZING that the president bemoaned the “crazy” behavior of super PACs – despite the mounting furor over a controversial ad put out by the super PAC cheerleading his own re-election effort. WHAT ABOUT THE EFFORTS OF THE DEMOCRATIC SUPER PAC.
    TALK ABOUT THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK. (NO, I’m not trying to be racist, that is the saying from long before Obama became president.)

  13. ricbldwn says:

    Romney better start taking a few positions of his own & let Obama attack him.
