WHAT? Andrea Saul Uses Romneycare to Slam Obama 'Cancer' Ad???
rightwingnews.com ^ | 08/09/12 | Matt Vespa

Posted on 08/09/2012 4:44:28 AM PDT by KentTrappedInLiberalSeattle

RedState’s Erick Erickson tweeted this could be the moment when Mitt Romney lost the election.

In an interview of Fox News, Romney Press Secretary Andrea Saul decided to invoke Romneycare as a counterpoint to the despicable narrative being pushed by Priorities USA. I’m sure you’ve seen the infamous ‘cancer ad.’ Business Insider reported on August 8th that:

…In defending Romney, she [Saul] veered way off message, explaining that if the steelworker, Joe Soptic, had lived in Massachusetts, he and his wife would have been able to get health insurance under Romney’s health-care reform legislation.

Here’s what she told Fox anchor Bill Hemmer, via Think Progress [gag]:

ANDREA SAUL: To that point, you know, if people had been in Massachusetts under Governor Romney’s health care plan, they would have had health care. There are a lot of people losing their jobs and their health care in President Obama’s economy.

FACEPALM! Even Politico cited the ad as grossly inaccurate saying “it may also be relevant that Soptic’s wife died in 2006, years after the GST factory closed down. A 2006 story in the Kansas City Star reported the death of Ranae Soptic, a former champion roller skater: Soptic went to the hospital for pneumonia, but doctors found signs of very advanced cancer, and she died two weeks later on June 22.”

However, despite the ongoing crusade to discredit this piece of trash by the Obama team, Saul has undercut the effort. Smelling blood in the water, “Bill Burton, a strategist for Priorities USA, said he’s as stunned as anyone that [Saul] would invoke Romney’s support for individual mandates, particularly in a state that wasn’t Massachusetts. They’re clearly sputtering in response to very painful stories from workers who lost their jobs, their health care and their pension benefits, Burton said.”

Last night on Hannity, Anne Coulter blasted Saul as an idiot for her handling of the response to this Obama slander and for once I agree with Coulter ..Andrea Saul should be fired. If the Romney campaign continues to use these dunderhead retreads from the McCain fiasco we will be given another four years of Obama.

The Ad was intended as a distraction away from the Obama economic and joblessness records.

It worked. It deflected attention. Even the newsies were talking about it.

Then, Saul opens her mouth and perpetuates the distraction even further. And the newsies jump on that distraction, as well.

Romney needs to keep himself and his team from being distracted by shiny objects and keep their attention on the REAL issues:

Yup. That's precisely why their increasingly shrill and desperate wailings to the effect of "... BUT... BUT... TEH OBAMA -- !!!" leave me, ultimately, unmoved. My precious stores of genuine pity for those stubbornly insistent upon shooting their own toes off, one at a time, have dwindled precipitously over the years. ;)

Well ‘Romney’=’Romney-care’. Coulter’s shrieking last night on Koolaid Hannity's program was annoying, recall that Romney was her primary pick because she said he had the best chance of winning. Now she is threatoning to abandon him. Too late for that Ann.

Yes Romney Press Secretary Andrea Saul's response was pathetically weak, in fact she comes off as very weak spokeswoman (to be likable??) on camera anyway but as I have been pointing out, the whole campaign has weak so what's new?

Maybe Rush will stop claiming that Romney is winning now (cheer leading) and certain ABBO folks will stop claiming the same here?

Romney or Obama, folks... Romney or Obama... we are a certain deep six if Obama stays, we may possibly extricate ourselves if Romney wins. I’m betting on the odds, still voting for Romney... and for Todd Aiken here in MO to beat Craggy McCaskill. There is a fork in the road, neither is a good choice, but one is certain doom...

Michelle Malkin was also commenting on Andrea Saul’s “performance.” Apparently Andrea comes to Romney campaign from McCain’s presidential effort. Maybe she is a mole for Obama? Someone says she doesn’t come across as likeable. She doesn’t come across as COMPETENT. Aside from this gaffe she is weak and unpersuasive.

Vote for who-ever you want to just like you did during the primary. Did that affect anything?

We are screwed either way. But there have always been questions and claims about Romney's ability to be elected, but watching him(them) in action is a real indication.

Obama has run left on many issues trying to motivate his based and multiple minority special interest groups, while claiming its Romney who is extreme,

Romney has no place to run to. He cant talk about his official positions because he doesn't believe in them. He cant run the other way because his party base will just give up, a sample is the Coulter whining last night, Rush's too.

Coulter made the same observation. This seems to be standard Republican stuff, to keep the same losers.

She appears pretty weak on TV as does the head of the RNC. Look at Obama’s attack dog David Axel-hatchet. He just rips and rips Romney on those shows, as with Harry Reid. That side is fighting.

And Saul is getting orders from someone to stay positive anyway. That is why she did that. Coulter misses that. Its her man Romney not some clueless spokeswoman Mccain re-tread..

There wasn’t one McCain staffer worth spit, IMHO after that disgusting 08 campaign. I never, ever will forget McCain touting “you have nothing to fear from an Obama presidency”.

The McCain group is the one who pounced and degraded Palin. Now we need to do something at this GOP convention. We the People need to revolt and nominate someone else with some FIRE in his/her stomach. I am scared to death of the end of this great country and with the faux O in the White House - this country would be gone in 4 more years. We need a man’s man type of candidate with big brass ones!

Once Romney is elected, he plans to push the RINO agenda down our throats, including RomneyCare.

I'm voting for him while holding my nose, because RomneyCare is still better than ObamaCare, but conservatives are screwed either way.

Hopefully, someone with real conservative values will run against Romney in four years. He's so weak though, Obama may win.

Well you are dreaming.
Romney won and now owns the party. (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus is very weak, not as bad as Steele is but who is? The RNC will trot out the RINOs like McCain at the convention. This is where we are.

Where is that Rodent Rove? He assured us over and over that Romney had an easy win.

There is one Republican that I am impressed with (no not Ryan) and it is Scott Walker, but it is not his time.

Ahhhhh yes - my home state of Wisconsin Scott Walker. Reince Priebus was OUR the head of our state GOP when we dumped Feingold, David Obey (forced retirement), took both houses here at the state level, plus got Walker into office. He was / is very impressive. Those of us here in WI think he's had his wings clipped by the GOPe, which is sickening. What do we hear from the GOPe? Nothing. McConnell and Boehner need to be dumped immediately.

Yes of course I know I'm dreaming about the convention, but darn it, this is getting frightening and this election is Romney's to lose and he's starting to do a darn good job at it. That Andrea Saul MUST be fired along with 99% of his staff. Get more of the John Sununu types in there to stand up and FIGHT. Where is the passion, where is the fire in his stomach to win this? I just don't see it.

Do you think there might be some behind-closed-doors discussion among the GOPe even as we speak about how impossible a candidate Mitt is? Maybe not -- I suspect Obama's people are more aware of conservative discontent with Romney than the GOPe! They just don't know how to capitalize on it (or they're holding their fire until after the convention).

A local talk show host said the other day that Romney is running as "a non-ideological manager." Where I have heard that before? I know -- that was Dukakis' campaign for President! And we all know how that turned out . . .

Romney's PAC Hires Communications Adviser
By Lindsey Boerma
March 3, 2011 | 1:05 p.m.

Former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney's (R) Free and Strong America PAC announced today the addition of Andrea Saul, a communications veteran of prominent campaigns -- including a brief stint as media director for former Fla. Gov. Charlie Crist's (I) Senate bid.

Fresh off her role as press secretary for 2010 California Senate nominee Carly Fiorina (R), Saul's resume also includes similar positions for McCain-Palin in 2008, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), and the Republican National Committee. She quit Crist's Senate campaign when the then-governor left the Republican Party to run as an independent.

As Romney primes for a second presidential run, Saul could be a top contender for his communications team. Still, Kevin Madden, who ran Romney's press room for his 2008 White House bid, says Saul's involvement doesn't preclude the possibility that he'll reprise his role in 2012.

"The hiring is related to the PAC since [there's been] no announcement on a campaign yet," Madden said in an e-mail. "I'm a supporter of the Governor and have advised the PAC on an informal basis, but no decisions have been made with regard to any role I'd have in a campaign that hasn't yet been announced."

Romney surrounds himself with snakes-in-the-grass. What could possibly go wrong?

I broke out of the mindset that all my hopes pin on the Republican party losers of today (Romney, McCain, McConnell, Boehner,Jeb bush, ....). I use the term 'Republicans' with contempt here now.
I am impressed with Walker, why would I want him tied to this set of loses? Let them have their RINO party.

If Romney loses then there is an open race in 2016 just time for someone like Walker. Who else do we have that takes on Democrats so boldly and doesnt flinch and wins? The others are the party of excuses.

Chairman Reince Priebus who I don't know well may be a good guy but he comes off as very weak on TV spokesman.

That doesnt change reality. That doesn't make Romney a winner. Lots of things are too bad.

I have a older relative with a real bad stroke, now bed and wheelchair ridden asuming he is lifted physically. That causes him and wife serious problems including financial, That doesn't allow him to walk again. Sometimes she would imagine it would, but that just cause more problems.

If it was me I would have said :” Obama spokesman Harry Reid is Bald face lying about Romney and Obama needs to call him off. This is a reflection on how deceitful the Obama campaign is

You see?? Go for the nerve.

Priebus could try his lines out camming himself with his phone before trying Network TV.

Romney has no argument with obamacare other than that it is poorly designed and run inefficiently. That is why his answers to healthcare questions are all unstaisfying or leave folks saying, "huh?"

Romney has no philosophical argument with anything because he has no philosophy. He does not contemplate "how things should be" nut only how to make the things that exist run more efficiently.

No. They do not see any way to improve things. Winning is not seen as a goal. They are Republicans. Most here call them RINOs but that is not accurate. They are, in fact, the true Republicans. Conservatives will not take over the party just as Republicans did not take over the Whig Party.

I agree. But will we even have a country left in 2016? Walker is the truest of gutsy, quiet, calm, in your face man I’ve ever seen. I’ve met him several times - TRUEST of what I call a man’s man and a gentleman. He knows what he wants and does NOT waver. He’s exactly what we want from every candidate. I hear he will speak at the convention. We’re so darn proud of him here our buttons pop. haa. The GOPe are totally losers. You know you’re doing right when the likes of Bachman, Palin, Paul Ryan, Walker, etc. are pounced on by the lib liars. Then we put up with McCain denouncing Bachman. @#%&^& him and the horse he rode in on.

T.E.A. Party types come in many shapes and forms. We have been successful slowly getting in at the grass roots for conservatives. Yes. Republican is nearing a dirty word here at my house, too.

"If Romney loses ...open race in 2016 someone like Walker.." If Romney loses in November, I lay you 5:3 (amount open) that there won't be any election in 2016. Jim Robinson can hold the money and if I win, the winnings go to Free Republic.

Obama has already proven that he doesn't need any 'stinkin Congress' to get things done his way. Sure as the sun rises in the east, he won't need any 'stinkin' election come 2016. And he won't even violate the 22nd Amendment, not that it will matter by then.

Ann Coulter pimped Romney on us and she’s having an epiphany?

Too little, too late!

I’ll never listen to her again as long I’m alive.

Jim Rob was right and Ann Coulter needs to banned from Free Republic. She’s demonstrated she’s no conservative.

That she could support a fraud and a flipper-flopper like Mitt Happens says a great deal more about her than it does about him.

The time to have stopped him cold was before the primaries. And now Obama will beat him in November!

I wonder if Coulter secretly works for the Obama White House!

RE :”I agree. But will we even have a country left in 2016?

What will be left in 2016 or 2018 or 2020 if Romney wins?

We were told the terrorists would kills us all if GWB didnt win in 2004, So he won and setup Democrats for big wins in 2006 and 2008.
In 2008 we were told there would be no country left if McCain didn't win, but that didn't get him elected.
We were told there would be no country left if Boehner didnt take the house from Pelosi 2010. He did and it made it harder to beat Obama this year.
Then last year a number of freepers told me that we would have no country left if the House paased a bill extending any more national debt. Then they did.
Now I am told.....

You get the idea

RE :”We’re so darn proud of him here our buttons pop. haa. The GOPe are totally losers. You know you’re doing right when the likes of Bachman, Palin, Paul Ryan, Walker, etc. are pounced on by the lib liars.

Actually I put Walker well ahead of all of them. He actually accomplished something. I am tired of excuses and I am sick of the Republican conservative establishment (and I mean Rush types too) making cult heroes out of those who just get criticized by Democrats.

I am talking specifically about cult hero Paul Ryan, Watch what he says and watch what he does and they are two different things.

Conservative cult heroes get that status for being criticized by Democrats for their talk, not any actions. Heroes like Walker act and get results and get REAL attacks for it.

I have had it with the BS and I am not buying it anymore.
