Skip to comments.Obama Staffer Stephanie Cutter Busted Lying About Priorities USA Ad
Posted on 08/10/2012 4:12:09 AM PDT by tobyhill
A controversial ad from Priorities USA, a Super PAC supporting President Obama, shows the story of Joe Soptic, a former worker from GST Steel.
GST Steel was a company that closed after being bought by Bain Capital, the investment firm that Mitt Romney helped build. In the ad, Soptic talks about how Mitt Romney and Bain closed GST Steel, causing him and his wife to lose his health care. The ad then states that shortly after that, it was discovered that his wife had stage four cancer, and died 22 days later.
The ad makes Romney look like Satan. Unfortunately, there are a few problems with it.
First of all, Romney left Bain in 1999 to take over the Salt Lake City Olympics. As noted by the Washington Post this week, GST filed for bankruptcy in 2001. Romney was not involved in the decision to close the plant.
Joe Soptics wife, Ranae Soptic, had health insurance through her own employer, a fact left out of the Priorities USA ad. She died in 2006, years after the plant was closed.
When asked about this ad, Stephanie Cutter, the deputy campaign manager for President Obamas reelection campaign, said on CNN I dont know the facts about when Mr. Soptics wife got sick or the facts about his health insurance.
Another Obama campaign advisor, Robert Gibbs, later echoed these statements on MSNBC Wednesday morning, saying that he did not know the specifics.

Lying within the zero regime thats a first
The Democratic Party: Liars, Inc.
Bearing false witness, coveting your neighbor’s possessions, stealing in the name of “fairness”, and killing the unborn: Democrat values.
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!
Funny.....nowhere in the article can you find the word “fired”.
When did Bob Newhart start supporting Obama?
Unions get cheap they didn’t even bring two shirts for the Filming.
It was the strangest dream, Emily. I was an unemployed steel worker... and Mitt Romney killed you--
Laws are for the purpose of democrats to hang republicans... republicans never enforce the laws on democrats because, well, they don’t want to appear to be mean spirited... soooo, nothing to see hear folks, move along, move along...
Unless they’re talking about what they had for lunch, I pretty much assume everything that comes out of the mouth of a Democrat pol is a lie. That’s how bad things are today.
Hannity pointed out that Soptic is wearing the same shirt in both the kill-my-wife ad, and in the Cutter episode.
Perhaps it’s his favorite shirt. On the other hand, it could be at the same time that these things were put together.
It would be interesting if there were some way to use pictures of that shirt in each photo to see if anything on the shirt would prove these pictures were taken so close together in time that colusion between Obama and a PAC was taking place.
Such collusion between a PAC and a campaign is illegal.
Since when does The Obamanation give a damn what it does is illegal... or constitutional?
I expect them to lie about Chick-fil-A...
Hack or Barack, pick one...
