Skip to comments.Unreal: Obama Denounces SuperPAC Attacks...by Republicans
Posted on 08/09/2012 4:58:21 PM PDT by Kaslin
By all means, please bravely decry those treacherous, deep-pocketed Republican SuperPACs who have the temerity to fund commercials attacking your dismal economic record, champ. It's not like your own SuperPAC -- the very existence of which he once deemed "a threat to our democracy" -- is running ads basically accusing your opponent of causing someone's death, or anything:
In CO, Obama Decries Republican Super PACs But Says Nothing About His Own
I'll reiterate my point from yesterday: This vicious freakshow isn't about Bill Burton or Stephanie Cutter or Robert Gibbs, or even Harry Reid. It's about Barack Obama, the man at the top of this poisonous food chain. The slime his minions are slinging are all part of Obama's "kill Romney" strategy, which he explicitly approved as they only viable path to cling to power. This intellectual sludge isn't just an indictment of Obama's supporting cast. It's a direct indictment on the man who hired them, and who fraudulently presented himself to voters as a post-partisan unicorn prince of togetherness in 2008. The RNC is picking up on the story we laid out yesterday, flaying one of Obama's hired smear merchants for her thoroughly substantiated lies:
In one of the few accurate things she says here, Cutter makes a big point of asserting that the Obama campaign is legally barred from coordinating with Priorities USA in any way. Did they violate the law in this case? Some evidence suggests so. Using the Reid standard, these organizations should be forced to pove that they didn't collaborate on the Soptic hit. I mean, "word's out" that they did, right? Finally, guess how Bill Burton spent his Wednesday evening, just after his jaw-dropping interview on CNN? Partying it up with DC journalists and not tipping the waitstaff, of course:
BuzzFeed, the up-and-coming website that graduated from covering funny cat pictures to covering politics AND funny cat pictures, celebrated the launch of its D.C. bureau in a packed party at the Brixton Wednesday night. Reporters from nearly every outlet in town were joined by few political types -- Bill Burton of President Obama's SuperPAC, Priorities USA, and Michael Steel, press secretary for House Speaker John Boehner, who showed up in jeans -- for the free booze, fancy cheese, and proscuitto. Apparently, all that free stuff made the Washington press corps forget its manners, because almost everyone totally stiffed the Brixton's excellent waitstaff. One server looked sadly grateful for two dollars thrown her way after hustling to deliver drinks. A bartender showed similar gratitude for a measly three dollars, leading Yeas & Nays to inquire if she had been receiving many tips that night. "No," she said. "Not at all."
Very cozy. And to think, people loathe the political media for some odd reason.
UPDATE - The Onion is now piling on. This is laugh-out-loud hilarious:
“I think this is a fair ad, and I think Mitt Romney owes an explanation to the American people as to why he murdered JonBenét Ramsey,” said Obama campaign manager Jim Messina, who called the commercial’s black-and-white reenactment of Mitt Romney carrying a kicking and screaming child to her death “accurate.” “Ultimately, voters need to know who they’re getting with Mitt Romney: a job- and child-killing businessman who is so deceitful he won’t release his tax returns or admit to a senseless murder that shook the nation to its core.” Moreover, at the end of the spot a smiling Romney is seen at a campaign event saying, “I killed her, and I had a good time.” Sources from the Romney campaign were quick to announce that the audio and video had been cobbled together from different statements he made during that particular rally.
“Personally, if I killed JonBenét Ramsey, I would have come clean and told the American people that on day one,” Obama’s communication director David Axelrod said on Sunday’s installment of Meet The Press. “But I think that’s a key difference between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Barack Obama never murdered a child, and Mitt Romney did.” According to sources at Obama’s Chicago headquarters, the “He Did It” commercial is just the first in a new series of attack ads that accuses Romney of drowning actress Natalie Wood in 1981, convincing cult leader David Koresh to burn down the Branch Davidian ranch in Waco, TX, and causing the Challenger disaster.
Words have failed me. “Puking slime” is as good as I’ve come up with so far.
Makes me want to contribute to the Republican supporting superpac crossroadsgps.org
That arrogant pos and his administration is pure evil
Puking slime just about sums it up. This guy is brilliant in his game and ability to lie. He totally refuses to go on the defensive, just keeps on moving forward, of course he knows he has media up his a$$ and he can pretty much say what he wants and not be challenged. Be assured, by the time this week is over, Romney will be losing the negativity battle.
Calling speaking the TRUTH as an attack.. is entertaining...
The TRUTH is ONLY an attack on a LIE...
Not only is the democrat party headquarters for lies...
Democracy itself is a Lie..
NO democracy has ever been democratic.. EVER...
Democracy was and is Mob Rule by mobsters..
The democrat party represents mobsters that are for Mob Rule..
Democracys have strong federal givernment and weak Providences...
This is what democrats want for the United States..
Just BEING a democrat makes you a traitor..
Thats WHY? the American Constitution does NOT have the words democracy or democratic in it anywhere.. ON PURPOSE..
Also why America was not and still isn’t a democracy...
Its by design and why the Constitution was written down to LIMIT the federal givernment..
NO OTHER REASON.. its to LIMIT the federal givernment.. EXACTLY..
I worry and wonder how much the unwashed--those who don't pay close attention--are persuaded with this trash coming from Obama's 'Kill Romeny' offensive. The kool-aid drinking liberal 33% probably won't be bothered by this slimy campaign, although they should be embarrassed with their Obie association. I would be shamed to admit I was a democrat.
These people and these tactics MUST be eradicated from the political system if it's to survive. I struggle with how to attack these people. Thinking caps on.
Well as I see it, Romney is far from meek, as evidenced in the primaries, specifically Florida. He slashed and burned Gingrich with lies, innuendo, and even trotted Mrs. Gingrich #2 out to meet and greet......where is the Romney we used to know? He is doing a John McCain remake and losing his base hoping he may get one gay boy scout to vote for him.

AT WHAT point is it justified legally to go after the Democrats Obama????
He actually could be quite good in this job. I don't think he has a liberal bone in his body, despite his Mass. record amongst the libs.
Mr. President, I think... I may have something... from the recent past we can tweek.
Okay, Joe just read it... like it is your own words--
I... eh, I lost my job... due-- eh, due to Mitt Romney's Bain Capitol--
No, Joe, take off your glasses... and don't read it like you are reading a script!
Okay, Mitt Romney's Bain Capitol fired me... and killed my wife--
Yes, yes... go on--
Then he got... both my daughters pregnant by his spoiled, no-count sons--
Yes, yes, Joe! You are on a roll... keep going!
Then Romney and his slut wife came over to my house... and killed my three dogs with assault rifles.
Oh MY God, Joe! I may never, ever... have a better orgasm--
As my Press Secretary just told you... we have absolutely no coordination with super PAC Priorities USA ads--
And to suggest we do... is insulting!
They really must think we are stupid
No, Kaslin, most conservative voters are not stupid nor fooled by these attack spots... but, sadly a lot of independent men and women voters are very stupid and that is who these ads are aimed toward--
