Yahoo Voices ^ | August 7, 2012 | Mark R. Whittington

Posted on 08/07/2012 2:53:05 PM PDT by Marcus

A new attack ad by a pro Obama super PAC called Priorities USA features a laid-off steel worker who essentially blames Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for the death of his wife from cancer.

Rush was talking about this today. Another lying bit of crap from the filthy, disgusting, perverted and communist Obama administration. These people don’t just deserve to lose, they deserve to be run out of Washington on a rail. Then prosecuted.

They do not know that people in glass houses should not throw stones.

Robert Gibbs asked Candy (snicker!) Crowley if she’d ever seen anyone go through so many hoops to avoid divulging anything (Romney’s tax returns) when he apparentlty overlooked the $3+ Million Bambi has paid lawyers to keep secret his Birth Certifiicate let alone his SS Card, school records, Passport Records, Student Loan records, vacatiuon expense for Moochelle, on and on.

Of course Candy did not call him on it.

So when they go negative on Mitt, it drives up Bambi’s negatives AND no one believes Mitt would be so mean (except the folks already voting against him like Libs and Freepers).

As of this point, I think that it’s a pretty safe bet that The Stain and his minions have even started to show their disgusting, vile, slimy, reprobate asses.

Obama is lower than dirt. Nothing should be off the table. Bring on Trump, Zullo, Arpaio, Root, Sununu. Hit him on everything from all angles. From his drug use to the lies in his books to his radical mentors to his forged documents. Take the gloves off and go mainstream

Obama is responsible for my father’s heart attack.
And my sister’s cancer.
And the death of my friend’s wife.
And ...

Viewing the ad, and reading between the lines, here is the timeline:

1993 - Bain buys plant, and keeps the doors open for 8 more years

2001 - Plant closes

2006 - Soptic’s wife goes to doctor, and discovers she has cancer

2006 - 22 days later , she dies

What the heck does her cancer and death have to do with Mitt Romney?

The entire ad is a stretch...I don’t think it will appeal to anyone, except hardcore leftists who are ‘afraid’ of Romney. Its a fire up the base, red meat approach - more suited for the primaries....but that’s all Barry has left.

In his own words, the jackass supports killing nascent life. And now supports through law the denial of life saving procedures for the elderly — “death panels”.

That’s because our side doesn’t call them out

They yell and scream like the spoiled lying brats they are

We make like we’re too good for that, and are just tsk-tsk parents

Sometimes a good barebutt whipping is what’s needed. There is no way they should EVER had the upper hand on document disclosures and proof of ANYTHING

Call these bastards out. And that includes the biased “media” like fatso Crowley

One thing for sure, Obama knows the IQ of his base very well, they buy this rot hook, line and sinker and he insults them with this drama. For those who believe this crap and consider themselves educated, think again.

Headline: Pro-Obama Ad Accusing Romney of a Woman's Cancer a New Low

I agree.

I mean c'mon...Mitt left a Planned Parenthood rep as part of the permanent oversight board for the Bay State RomneyCare "Commonwealth" system...(that was 2006...less than 2 years AFTER "converting" to "pro-life" status)

The year before that -- about half-a year after "converting" to "pro-life status" -- he announced at a press conference on May 27 2005, "I am absolutely committed to my promise to maintain the status quo with regards to laws relating to abortion and choice."

Wow! What a "pro-life" vanguard we have there...

With Mitt watchin' the back of the abortion industry, how could Obama possibly even link Romney to any pro-life activity???

As Rush pointed out - under Obamacare, this guy would be hunted down by the IRS and FINED for not having health insurance. (Nevermind that his wife died 7 years after he lost his job.)

Exactly. This sort of childishness is a lie too far. No one will be persuaded except the choir.

Here are 56 reasons why Barack Obama is a lying, lawbreaking, warmongering, corrupt cronyist, who loves corporate lobbyists and Wall St., and who has no respect for the Constitution, limited government, rule of law, individual freedom, civil liberties, the taxpayers, or sick people who have prescriptions for medical marijuana

44) Conducted dangerous and illegal scientific experiments on people

From January 2010 through June 2011, the Obama administration conducted illegal scientific experiments which exposed 42 people to dangerous levels of toxins.

And when the “mainstream” media doesn’t want to talk about those things, what then?

The media’s constant:

- Non-reporting of any stories which could hurt the Democrats
- Twisting any news on Democrats in positive light
- Twisting any news on any Republican in a negative light
- Reporting any and all stories on Republicans in a negative light

is what makes elections close.

That’s how influential the “media” is. If they played it straight, the Left would never win an election. Ever.

The real low is that the breast cancer patients they promote are the very same they have a plan to throw under the bus using Obamacare death panel... because Obamacare is “just a tax” as Justice Julia Roberts said, and, that means, if you are sick and cost in tax instead, you are out.

Shockingly vicious but a typical Dem-lib tactic. The Dems are experts at gutter politics. I’ve got to admit, this one is unbelievingly low even for the Dems.

As long as the press continues to behave as it does, I don’t think the Obama administration has much to worry about in regard to accountability for his sick behavior period.

That is why we have the alternate news media, such as conservative talk radio and the internet.

Speaking of killing people..
I heard from a 'good source' that Vlad Putin, yep that 'ex' KGB Agent and trained KILLER, has contributed about $1 Million Dollars to Obama's reelection campaign. And not though some PAC, but directly 'to Obama'!

Obama HAS TO ANSWER these serious charges and PROVE that an 'ex KILLER' like Putin did NOT 'contribute'!!

I bet he CAN'T!!

I felt sorry for Soptic until I found out his wife had her own insurance policy. The lying piece of crap “forgot” to mention that in the video.

“Soptic told CNN his wife had her own health insurance at her own job when he was laid off. Soptic said his wife quit her job a year or two later due to an unspecified injury, thereby losing her own health insurance. But Soptic still blames her death in 2006 from a brief bout with cancer due to his lack of family health insurance because he was laid off in 2001. In the Priorities USA ad, Soptic says it was a “short time later” from when he was laid off to when his wife got sick and died. CNN reports it was actually five years.”

The minions for pork chop in the white house tells us we must respect the office. Sorry, I have lost all respect for that office under 0.

He sure as hell doesn’t respect the office. He demeans it with every breath he takes, every move he makes. He has brought race relation down to the level of the 50’s.

He is promoting riots in October. Sad so it is. Sad it is so.
