Skip to comments.Cancer Victim Had Health Insurance For Year or Two After Bain Closed Plant
Posted on 08/07/2012 5:46:39 PM PDT by Nachum
Earlier today, pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA released an ad in which Joe Soptic discusses how he lost his job because Bain closed a GST Steel plant in Kansas City, Missouri, in 2001, and notes that his wife passed away of cancer not long after, suggesting that she waited to see a doctor (she had stage 4 cancer by the time she received medical attention) because of the couples lack of health insurance. Well, first it turned out that Soptics wife, Ranae Soptic, died in 2006 five years after the GST Steel plant closed.

I’d like to know how much they paid this guy to spew this dribble.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
YOU MEAN THE DEMOCRATS LIED???? /s
“Id like to know how much they paid this guy to spew this dribble.”
Democrats LIE for free. Just ask obama.
Did Soptic somehow think that nobody would investigate this claim?
Showing this ad on Hannity right now...
Why would Soptic think his claim would be investigated? This is the same media that can’t be bothered to look into the gaping holes in Obama’s background.
What could they pay a guy to use his wife’s death as a political prop? When the story he tells is a lie - and he looks like scammer of the year? Scummy, scummy, scummy...
I told my wife early in this abomination administration that arrogance would be their undoing.
What kind of POS uses his wife’s death for political gains?
What kind of POS political candidate lets someone use their dead wife for
Their political gain?
CCN breaks the story. Not Fox what is Roger doing? No one investigating this crap at Fox. Talk about top heavy. CNN runs it down unbelievable.
Ask John Edwards.
nnnNNNNNNOOOOOOO!!!! Not FACTS!!!!! AAAAAAHHHH!!!!!!
In any event, he could have continued his insurance after being laid off using COBRA had he felt like it.
Why let a few facts get in the way of a good story ?
We haven’t hit the convention yet. And American memories are like goldfish - 5 seconds. Wait, it is ok.
Is that a PAC website or DNC etc? If Obama is responsible for that website he cannot say it's a PAC I have no control over.
It takes a particularly creepy sleazebag to trample on his dead wife’s memory for a piece of crap like Obama.
Soooo, since she had insurance until the she left work at the thrift store, the thrift store killed her?
As disgusting as this ad is, it is also very much indicative of how the Obama Campaign is viewing the political landscape right now.
This is an ad designed not to boost Obama’s own base, or to flip moderates/independents over to him. It’s designed, explicitly, to suppress the white blue-collar/working-class voters that will either hold their nose and vote for Romney, or stay home.
It means they think they’ve topped out in terms of their own numbers, and now need to pursue other means to get to victory.
So what the heck makes Soptic, an Obama supporter, think that Obama does? Zero has never even had a real job, and has had things handed to him (via affirmative action) his whole life!
Liberalism is a mental disease.
Despite the Obama administration distancing themselves from this slander, I think its clear why they desperately wanted to tie Romney as in charge at Bain up until 2001.
It seems this “Romney killed my Wife” nonsense was the showcase of the Obama campaign strategy to defeat Mitt and win reelection. However, just like everything else the left does, this is blowing up in their faces.
then it was all a big fat lie..but will anyone tell the world
I just love how cases like these always seem to totally fall apart when even a modest amount of investigation is done. One would think with all of the people at their disposal, they could find SOMEONE that actually fits with their lies to make it work.
Of course, they could run the ad 24/7 and the media would never call them on it. Romney could have given that lady one of his Kidneys and they would continue to act as if he put a .45 up to her head and pulled the trigger.
Ask John Edwards.
You're right - Edwards was creepier - he used his wife as a prop while she was dying...
Maybe some freeper should do a 'tackiest dem stunt' thread... could become a classic,,,
Edwards’ wife INSISTED he run for president even tho she KNEW he was having this affair!!!!! She wanted to be First Lady SO damned bad, that NOTHING was going to stand in her way!!
It’s hard to believe she was a typical democrat - she seemed better... but I’ll take your word for it. It’s not something I followed closely.
#17: COBRA is hundreds of dollars a month for a single person. For a family, the costs are astronomical. Most people who are jobless (or otherwise) cannot afford COBRA.
OMG!! Elizabeth was a HORRIBLE person. She said something awful about Palin....she said awful things about a lot of people!!
She profited off her husband’s abusive lawsuits, too.
