Obama camp denies knowledge of cancer tale it told in May
Yahoo News ^ | Aug. 8, 2012 | Olive Knox

Oops? President Barack Obama's re-election campaign washed its hands Wednesday of an independent group's vicious (and misleading) ad effectively blaming Mitt Romney for the death of a laid-off steelworker's wife from cancer. Campaign officials flatly denied any knowledge of the facts in the case—but it turns out the widower told the same story on an Obama campaign conference call in mid-May. (The Obama campaign responded late in the day: See update below).

I can’t believe how anti-bammy the comments are at yahoo on this article.

Barely a single Obamanite that I can find defending him! Perhaps the Hopeychange balloon has a big leak?

There is a severe case of Allergies going on in the White House and some Senate/House Offices.

Whenever a lie detecter machine comes near people in these places, they have severe and immediate reactions.

I imagine the DNC has banned such equipment from their headquarters as a health risk...

In my experience, the comments in every Yahoo news story I’ve ever read are OVERWHELMINGLY anti-Obama. No idea why - Yahoo news clearly leans left - but 95% of the commenters would fit right in here at FR.

Same here. Then Yahoo started using Facebook for most of the stories about Dear Leader, to restrict bad comments, I guess... Now it seems like they’re allowing regular Yahoo commentators again.

I think we are wasting time and resources going after what Obama’s serogotes are doing because he will simply wash his hands of their lies as he does here.

Obama has plenty of lies indisputably of his own to go after.

Most Conservatives forget, if Obama and his regime say they didn't do it, THEY DIDN'T DO IT. Nothing to see here but the destruction of the United States by the worse president in history. Up to four years ago, I was saying Carter was the biggest turd in history but I have changed my answer. Now Carter can die knowing he has been the 2nd worse president.

When the Liar in Chief exits the White House for the last time on the morning of January 20, 2013, how much coverage will he get after President Romney takes over? My gues, a lot. Romney will be a major inconvinience for the lsm. He will take the time needed to cover the former LiC.

The top comment is interesting:

“I saw and listened to the audio tape where this same guy is talking to Ms. Cutter, Obama top aide, telling the exact same story back in May. Ms. Cutter thanks him so much for sharing. Now, she says she didn’t know anything about the ad or guy. Proven liars.”

Romney campaign should be making the counterpunch that it’s over-regulation, over-taxation, over-litigation that’s killed so many American companies over the years.

By raising those sorts of costs here in the US, it effectively lowers the relative costs of outsourcing.

Add to that the damping effect on the work ethic that starts in public schools.
