Obama campaign: Don't blame us for ad blaming Romney for cancer death
Yahoo! News ^ | August. 8, 2012 | Olivier Knox

President Barack Obama's reelection campaign distanced itself on Wednesday from a harsh—and misleading—ad that effectively ties Mitt Romney's business decisions to a woman's cancer death. But neither the campaign nor the White House passed judgment on the vicious commercial, which emerged from a super PAC backing Obama.

"We have nothing, no involvement, with any ads that are done by Priorities USA. We don't' have any knowledge of the story of the family," Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters aboard Air Force One.

"As you know, campaign finance rules in that regard are in place for a reason," she said, referring to laws forbidding outside groups from coordinating with the presidential campaigns.

This only proves, once again, that the Imposter in the WH is a shallow man....who bathed in the Chicago political sewer long enough to have washed away any and all morale fiber.

They were asked yesterday, but they waited to see well it was recieved. Obviously it’s not going over very well.

How is this ad any different from Obama saying that his mother died of ovarian cancer because she was rejected for treatment by her health care provider? Which was, of course, a lie. Seems that Barry's people are using the same play book.

HA! I just saw that meter today and almost used it on another thread (Obama related, of course).

The ad is RADIOACTIVE, and the Obama camp knows it. If the Obama people had a lick of sense, they would proceed to do a character assassination on this Bill Burton, using all the proven David Axelrod methods.

Wait a minute. These ARE the David Axelrod methods. Then all the propositions in the previous paragraph stand. The Obama people do NOT have a lick of sense, Bill Burton will be able to double down on this wild assertion, and move on to even more unreal and outrageous attacks, all with the full blessing of the godfather, David Axelrod.

And every bit of this is being bankrolled by - George Soros. We all know how much Soros HATED the Bushes, on a visceral level, so obviously allowing George Soros to be continually driven to distraction by the Bush family, ends up with this all being on Dubya’s head, for making poor Mr. Soros so agitated that he was driven - DRIVEN - to destroy all that America stood for.

Yep. Bush’s fault.

Why is it that in reading this I have this vision of Karl Rove yelling “Cry Havoc! And let slip the dogs of war!” ?

This lets Romney off the hook for all the ads put out by anti Obama superpacs. If someone wants to run ads about the birth certificate, Columbia and Harvard records, ties to Wright, Ayres, Marshall and the Chicago Communist Party, all Romney has to answer with is a citation of this non denial.

Yes, the White House, the Democratic Party, and the President are responsible for and surely had knowledge of this ad before it went public. The ad was produced by Priorities USA. Paul Begala, a former Bill Clinton political strategist and CNN analyst, is now working as a consultant for Priorities USA Action, a super PAC run by Bill Burton and Sean Sweeney, who are former White House senior staff members committed to Barack Obama’s reelection.

Mr. Obama is a professional agitator, and these are some of his front men. We are not going to be able to beat these gutter fighters unless we shed our genteel postures and get down to business.

Don’t blame us for it’s not our fault you didn’t build that. No longer can we at a time when so many people are millionaires and billionaires pay their fair share. I will be focused like a laser on the war on women.

Like all two-bit Chicago gangstas, the Kenyan has a whole bunch of little, homosexual commie toadies to do his dirty work for him. He lets them kiss the bottoms of his feet when they do good.

They are using the same playbook as Otter in the Delta House trial from Animal House.

The guy running the PAC used to be an assistant press secretary for the Obama White House.

What difference does it make whether the White House is involved, all these Democratic politicos are unscrupulous liars, anyway.

Prove it. We heard you were involved and that's a serious charge so you're going to have to prove you had nothing to do with it.

If I didn’t know better, I would think Romney ran that ad. Obama’s internal polls must be tanking. Six months ago I said that everything, EVERYTHING Obama will try will blow up in his face.

Funny, aren’t these ads REQUIRED to have the “I’m King Barry, and I approve this message” disclaimer?
