Shameful Obama PAC Ad Blames Romney for Killing Steel Workers Joe Soptic’s Wife to Cancer … Obama Has Gone Way to Far This Time as Ad is 100% False


Obama and Democrats never let the facts get in the way of a rotten, vicious attack political ad … From Hope and Change to vile, false political ads and Campaign/Super PAC collusion.

What else would a Barack Obama and and a pro-Barack Obama super PAC Priorities USA do but viciously blame others for something? The shameful, negative and reprehensible ad from an Obama PAC blames Mitt Romney for the death of a steel workers wife from cancer because the business went belly-up. Sounds bad on the surface, eh … to bad that is only the tip of the iceberg of facts. When the ad is fact checked, there are not enough Pinocchio’s available to give to this false ad.

Forget the fact that Romney was no longer at Bain Capital when the GST Steel plant closed in 2001, but the facts in this disgusting ad get much worse as the facts do not come close to the shameful political ad. We learned yesterday that Joe Soptic’s wife had her own insurance through her job. Let alone his wife passed away five years after the plant closed.

A SuperPAC run by former Obama spokesman Bill Burton accused Mitt Romney of killing a woman because she lost insurance when her husband’s job was terminated.

CNN has blown this ad apart, finding that the woman continued to have health insurance through her own employer after her husband was terminated.

So how does Soptic show up in a political ad for Obama and yet suddenly shows up in a super-PAC ad and the two claim that there was no coordination between the Obama campaign and the Super PAC? Hmm? Even though there are taped conference calls. Cutter

But wait it gets even worse if possible. As reported at the Gateway Pundit, Bain capital actually offered Joe Soptic a buy out before the plant closed in 2001. Wow, those evil bastards at Bain actually offered a buy out to employees for a company going under. How heartless of Bain Capital.

Oh wait, there is even more, if possible. Soptic was then employed after he lost his job at GST Steel, but chose not to insure his wife through his plan. Good grief, how is any of this Romney’s fault.

Mr. Soptic said that his wife was receiving health insurance through her employer at the time he lost his job at GST Steel, though she later suffered an injury, left her job and lost her insurance coverage. He could not say precisely when this occurred.

Mr. Soptic said that after he lost his job, he found work as a school custodian about six months later and had the option to put her on his insurance plan. But he opted not to, he said, because he could not afford the more than $350 monthly premium on the $25,000 salary he was making, on top of paying his mortgage and a daughter’s college tuition. Ilyona Soptic was diagnosed with cancer in 2006 and died that year.

Is it a tragic story, Yes. However, the shameful and what appears to be organized and coordinated attack by the Obama administration and Obama Super PAC is as shameful and illegal as it gets. As reported at the Politico, Team Obama denies knowing story of man in its TV ad, call. Really? As stated at Michele, these folks are either lying or have short memories, you make the call. Breitbart opts with lying.

Soptic, laid off from Bain Capital-owned GST Steel, stars in a Priorities USA Action spot this week in which he tells of how his wife died without health insurance after he lost his job. Soptic also appeared, wearing what appears to be an identical shirt, in a May television ad for the Obama campaign.

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.

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.

“We have no idea when Priorities shot their spot,” an Obama campaign official said. “We’re not allowed to coordinate with them – but we can tell you it wasn’t when we shot ours.”

The aide didn’t answer questions about when the Obama campaign shot its Soptic footage or explain Cutter’s televised statement.

      The ad is a complete lie and the joy of
      picking it apart and throwing it back in
      the face of the liars is captivating. It is
      a Red Herring! While we are wrapped up
      in the pursuit of swatting the lies flies,
      this Radical Administration is strangling
      our lives with a flood of crippling regulations
      and unConstitutional executive orders!

    2. A Texas Grandfather on August 9th, 2012 9:51 am

      This makes one question the supposed non-coordination between the official campaign and the super PAC. Of course we also have to consider that this is a Democrat political campaign that will try anything, including outright lies, to make their opponent look bad. Chicago style politics.

      The more one discovers about this poor guy, the more it looks as if he has a hidden agenda to harm Bain Capital.

    3. NGBoston on August 9th, 2012 10:20 am

      Wow….dirty Politics at it’s best.

      This is what Barack learned on his way up in Chi-Town.

      He excels at it.

    4. NGBoston on August 9th, 2012 10:24 am

      Just to point out, as a Mass Resident, I am surprised that Romney refrains from using dirty Politics himself.

      Massachusetts is just about as corrupt and twisted as Chicago, DC, LA and NYC.

      Seriously! My only question about Mitt Romney being the President has never been about capability or experience. I am confident he could get the job done and improve our economy. My only issue with Mitt is…..Is he tough enough to survive in the Oval Office?

      He is probably just too damn nice of a guy for Washington.

      Just my Opinion……

      In political attack ads the Barark Obama Campaign is unrelenting in regards to despicable character attacks against Mitt Romney … despicable character attacks that provide no credible backup. These attack ads have implied that the Republican candidate for President of the United States is a felon … he has not paid taxes for 10 years and … he is somehow responsible for the death of a former employee’s wife who passed 5 years following his termination.

      Nevertheless … Mitt Romney … akin to John McCain … refuses to CLEARLY expose THE TRUTH in political campaign ads to the American people in regards to the Marxist/Socialist/Racist/pro-Islamic ideology that Barack Obama embraces … the Marxist/Socialist/Racist/pro-Islamic ideology that defines ALL his implemented policies for almost four years … implement policies encompassing big brother government … energy and … national defence within and without.

      A series of Mitt Romney ads revealing the TRUTH is where it is at … a series with clips informing the American people of Barack Obama’s past longtime associations … past longtime associations that has influenced his worldview right up to the 2008 Presidential election campaign. Then there is the crucial exposure of those in Obama’s inner circle who have surrounded Obama since day one of his “reign” …. those who hold influencial policy-making/advisory positions within the administration … those who embrace a like-minded ideology.

      Could it be that through Romney political ads that expose the TRUTH that many right wing Democrats and left leaning Independents will finally get it. They will realize that the Democratic Party was deceptively taken over by Barack Obama in 2008 under the guise of liberalism and … in the name of freedom … will plug their liberal noses and vote for a Republican in November.

      Ronald Reagan – 40th President of the USA (1981-1989)

      “Back in 1927, an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for President on the Socialist Party ticket, said that the American people would never vote for socialism but he said under the name of liberalism the American people would adopt every fragment of the socialist program.”

      “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

      Sarah Palin: Jeremiah Wright Is FairA Game
      Posted: 05/22/2012 10:29 am Updated: 05/22/2012 5:11 pm
      During an appearance on Fox News on Monday night, Sarah Palin signaled her belief that Rev. Jeremiah Wright shouldn’t be off-limits as an issue in the presidential election.
      Addressing the president’s ties to his former pastor, Palin argued that the controversial figure should be fair game in the race for the White House.
      She explained, “I thought so in 2008, and that’s why I went rogue, if you will and disagreed with some of John McCain’s advisers when they said no a lot of these issues like past associations and Rev. Wright and Bill Ayers and those that helped shape Obama’s world view needed to be off the table and not discussed.”
      The former Alaska governor added, “I disagreed then, I disagree now.” She took issue with the notion of a “one-sided ceasefire call” and argued that some GOP operatives “have the fighting instinct of Mr. Snuffleupagus.”
      Last week, the New York Times reported that a Republican Super PAC was considering a $10 million campaign targeting the president’s connection to Wright. Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney sought to distance himself from the proposal, saying, “I want to make it very clear: I repudiate that effort.”
      On Monday night, Palin said that Republicans need to fight “tooth and nail” in 2012. Asked about who she sees as a strong possible GOP vice presidential candidate, the former governor reiterated her view that Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) could be a strong pick.

      Romney Condemns Ad Proposal Using Reverend Wright
      Published: May 17, 2012

      Mitt Romney on Thursday condemned plans by Republican strategists and a billionaire investor to run a $10-million advertising campaign linking President Obama to the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright, his incendiary former pastor.

      “I repudiate that effort,” Mr. Romney told reporters at an impromptu news conference Thursday in Jacksonville, Fla. “I think it’s the wrong course for a PAC or a campaign.” ….

      Authors of the 54-page proposal to Mr. Ricketts wrote that “with your preliminary approval at the New York meeting, we have discussed this plan in highly confidential terms with the following proposed team members.”

      “All are ready to jump into action upon plan approval,” the proposal said.

      Romney Condemns Ad Proposal Using Reverend Wright
      Published: May 17, 2012
      The proposal to use Mr. Obama’s association with Mr. Wright quickly brought comparisons between Mr. Romney and Senator John McCain of Arizona, the Republican presidential nominee in 2008.
      Mr. McCain spoke forcefully during that campaign in defense of Mr. Obama, saying on Fox News that Mr. Wright’s rhetoric “are statements that none of us would associate ourselves with.”
      “I don’t believe that Senator Obama would support any of those as well,” he said.
      On Thursday, Mr. McCain indicated that he would again forbid advisers from using material about Mr. Wright.
      “Senator McCain is very proud of the campaign he ran in 2008,” said Brian Rogers, Mr. McCain’s spokesman. “He stands by the decisions he made during that race and would make them again today.”

      Rage rising on the McCain campaign trail
      October 10, 2008

      At a rally in Minnesota on Friday, a woman told McCain: “I don’t trust Obama. I have read about him and he’s an Arab.”

      McCain shook his head and said, “No ma’am, no ma’am. He’s a decent family man…[a] citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues. That’s what this campaign is all about.”

      One man at the rally said he was “scared of an Obama presidency.” McCain later told the man he should not fear Obama.

      “I want to be president of the United States, and I don’t want Obama to be,” he said. “But I have to tell you, I have to tell you, he is a decent person, and a person that you do not have to be scared as President of the United States.”

      McCain’s response was met with boos from the crowd.

      Michelle Malkin on Fire on ‘Hannity’

      MALKIN: The thing that has changed phenomenally between 2008 and 2012 is that we don’t have to rely on Barack and Michelle Obama and their Alinsky- ites story-tellers in the mainstream media and all of their operatives to set the tone and the storyline for this election. That is what underscores all of the victory that we’ve seen over the last four years on the right. Conservatives online are not accepting these fables that have been shoved down our throat, the idea that Obama has brought us out of the light when he’s plunged us deeper into the sinkhole of debt.

      Somehow Obama has opened up Washington, D.C. to make it as transparent and open as possible when they’ve done all of these deals and subverted the rule of law behind closed doors. That somehow Obama is more likeable than any Republican and he is a nice guy — I hate hearing this from Mitt Romney. He’s got to get this talking point out of his mouth. Barack Obama is not a nice guy. He has dealed brutally with the right, with people like Paul Ryan and brave Republicans who have been calling him to the carpet on all of the disgusting culture of corruption that has rained and that is the darkness that we have to get out of in November.

Why will he not clearly expose THE TRUTH that lurks behind the Marist that deceptively hijacked the Democratic Party in 2008? What am I not getting?

      Super PAC Attack Ad Depicts Allen West Punching White Women
      August 9, 2012

      The American Sunrise PAC has launched its first attack ad against Congressman Allen West. The political action committee was founded by the father of Congressman West’s general election opponent Democrat Patrick Murphy.

      Thomas Murphy Jr. is the CEO of a Miami-based Coastal Construction Group, and he has already kicked in $250,000(Source) into the PAC. But now those funds have been employed in the creation of a questionable ad that depicts West as a boxer who smacks around women and takes money away from middle class families.

      Romney campaign claims Obama aides caught in ‘lies’ over controversial ad
      Published August 09, 2012

      The Romney campaign charged Thursday that President Obama’s aides just got caught in a lie, after an Obama spokeswoman acknowledged the campaign knows the man in a controversial ad despite claims to the contrary a day earlier.

      “The Obama campaign has now admitted that it lied to the media and the American people in a disgraceful attempt to conceal their connection to this shameful smear,” Romney spokesman Ryan Williams said.

      Williams was referring to the ad by a pro-Obama super PAC that tied the death of a steelworker’s wife to Mitt Romney. Obama aides, initially questioned on the ad, said they had nothing to do with it and denied being familiar with the story of the ad’s subject, ex-steelworker Joe Soptic.


      Fox News poll: Obama’s lead grows as Romney’s support slips
      Published August 09, 2012

      After a barrage of campaign ads, negative news coverage of his overseas trip and ongoing talk about his tax returns, Romney’s favorable rating and standing in the trial ballot have declined. As a result, President Obama has opened his biggest lead since Romney became the presumptive Republican nominee.

      The president would take 49 percent of the vote compared to Romney’s 40 percent in a head-to-head matchup if the election were held today, the poll found.

      Reid aide divulges details on source of Romney tax claim — then retracts
      Published August 10, 2012

      Reid aide Jose Parra first made the claims in an interview on Los Angeles’ KTLK radio, defending his boss’ decision to trumpet the tax charge last week on the Senate floor and explaining a bit about the source.

      “This person is an investor in Bain Capital, a Republican also, and somebody … who has been dealing with Romney’s company for a long, long time and he has direct knowledge on this,” Parra said. …

      However, after some media attention on Parra’s radio interview, Parra issued a statement to The Huffington Post taking those remarks back.

      “I do not know the party affiliation of the source, how long he invested with Bain, or his relationship to Romney beyond the fact that he was an investor with Bain Capital, as Senator Reid has previously stated,” he said
