Axelrod: Priorities ad doesnít blame Romney for womanís death
The Hill ^ | August. 12, 2012 | Debbie Siegelbaum

Posted on 08/12/2012 10:38:41 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Senior Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod on Sunday denied that a recent ad from pro-Obama super-PAC Priorities USA blamed Mitt Romney for a woman’s death from cancer, after her husband lost his job and insurance at a plant shuttered by Bain Capital

“I don't think anybody, anybody believes . . . that Gov. Romney can be blamed for the death of Mr. Soptic's wife,” Axelrod said Sunday on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”

“And, frankly, I don't think the ad says that either,” he added.

The ad, released by Super PAC Priorities USA, has been roundly criticized in recent weeks, with many claiming it goes too far and suggests Romney is responsible for the woman’s death.

And BO didn’t really mean that you didn’t build your business. These liars are getting ridiculous. Even the densest Democrats will have to admit their team is falling apart as each lie gets magnified under the microscope of the internet.

Well, I guess if he’s arguing that the phrase “Mitt Romney killed this lady” isn’t actually spoken in the ad, that’s technically true...however, it is definitely designed to make the viewer and listener infer that is the case...otherwise there is no purpose to the ad.

...Obastard didn’t mean it this week when he said he wants to take over every business in the country.

He actually thinks he can get away with this?

Been out there too long and it’s gonna stay out there, so lie all you want.
He should be married to DWS. They’d make a good comedy team.

I think that 49% of the country is willing to listen and believe the LIAR in chief even though they know in the their hearts they are lies.

You are using logic and truth to thwart absurd commentary by a confirmed liar.

My assessment of Axelrod is if he were standing on the platform awaiting a subway, I’d love to be the guy who bumped in into the path of an express.

"But you cannot separate the facts the woman is dead... and Mitt Romney was the CEO of Bain Capitol, can we?"

"Look, Mitt Romney was the CEO of Bain Capitol... and the woman died without healthcare. What could be more evident?"

"Get real, Mitt Romney is a Republicans and we all know... Republican want to kill women, children, immigrants and old folks!"

"No, the ad did not say Mitt Romney killed that woman... but given Mitt's track record, what else can you believe?"

This example of staying on point... is brought to you by No Shame!, the product Democrats swear by--

"G*ddamit, listen to me! Buy the eFing No Shame! and never again... will you sweat an interview!"

And George Stephanopoulos immediately said “What kind of fools and tools do you take us for? Do you think we are so far in the tank for Obama that we are going to let you get away with that?” /s (for the sarc challenged)

Axelrod: Priorities ad doesn’t blame Romney for woman’s death

He's right! All it does is blame Romney for woman’s death!

Axelrod is a disgusting brownshirt thug. His conscious aping Hitler’s appearance would be interesting to a psychiatrist. Somebody should ask Krauthammer.

I can't stand to watch Axelrod.

He keeps burping and rifting. Disgusting.

I bet his breath is horrible.

And Paul Ryan didn’t push Grannie off the cliff in another ad released on behalf of the Obama propaganda machine, either....

Some of us remember the little girl out picking daisies, then the atomic weapon was detonated, too. LBJ won that election, as I recall, in part because of the revulsion to the idea that Barry Goldwater would use tectical nuclear weapons on the battlefield, a completely legitimate use of the arsenal at the time.

Democrats, from time to time, have used some particularly offensive ads. But they would also lie and say, “We didn’t do that.”

Axelrod is weird looking and an awful liar. Surely the Obama campaign can put a more accomplished liar out there for the Sunday shows.

I remember my mother telling me:

"Before the election, the Democrats were saying that if I voted for Goldwater, we'd be sending combat troops into Vietnam. They were right -- I did and we are."

I saw Axle on all the Sunday morning shows, and he did not look like someone who was confident that Romney just handed the Dems a win. He looked more like a man passing a gallstone the size of a bowling ball. The Ryan pick has him shaken, which can only mean good things.

David and Debbie are getting laughed out of town over their remarks. Bender2 is making hay by the bale on Free Republic. Time for you... to work your magic, Joe.

Why are we here today? I mean did or did not... Mitt Romney kill a woman?

Now, give me a moment... give me a moments--

Yeah, I know the right-wing and Fox News... is going crazy over this--

But, hey, it is a fact without doubt the right-wing and Fox News... are crazy to begin with and liars to boot!

Now, Mitt Romney was CEO of Bain Capitol and an employee's wife did die... and we all recall that Paul Ryan push an old woman off a cliff just for the hell of it--

I mean we all saw it! It was on TV... for Christ sake!

So, we find ourselves with two murdering GO Right-Wingers running against us this fall... and that is why we are here--

Now, all this crap about Mitt's and Paul's cool hair, it ain't no big efing deal... is it?

How'd I do, Boss? How'd... I do?

Joe, when it comes to your talking magic... a thumb's up. You have no peer!

Axelrod: Priorities ad doesn’t blame Romney for woman’s death...even more despicable than Axelrod and his ilk thinking they're so much smarter than everyone else is their arrogance in thinking that others are incapable of understanding the manifest and implied meanings of the stupid comments and ads the 'rats put out - - see also all thsoe who keep insisting the "you didn't build that" doesn't mean what it says or was taken out of context.....
