    The Obama campaign has been caught in a lie over Joe Soptic, the man in the now infamous "Romney killed my wife" ad put out by Priorities USA. After the real timeline of events caused scrutiny of the PAC, the Obama re-election team claimed to have had no knowledge of Soptic's story. Deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter told CNN she didn't know the facts behind Soptic's story. “I don’t know the facts about when Mr. Soptic’s wife got sick or the facts about his health insurance,” she said. Robert Gibbs echoed that sentiment when he told reporters on Air Force...

    In a January 10, 2012 interview with Amy Goodman of "Democracy Now!" the anti-Romney steel plant employee revealed he was offered a buyout when Bain decided to close the plant. Joe Soptic, the employee, has been in the news as of late due to an ad he made for the Obama-backed Super PAC Priorities USA. In the ad, Mr. Soptic says his wife died of cancer because he was laid off and no longer had health insurance. However, not mentioned in the ad is that his wife found out she had cancer nearly five years after his departure from the...
  • NBC Still Ignores Romney-Killed-My-Wife Ad, But Finds Time for Obama's Socks

    Still working hard to avoid mentioning an outrageous Obama super-PAC ad that basically accused Mitt Romney of being responsible for the cancer death of a woman, Thursday's NBC Nightly News had the gall to instead promote pro-Obama fluff, as anchor Brian Williams gushed: "Knowing a hot product when he sees one, the President today visited the U.S. Olympic training facility in Colorado." Williams made sure to inform viewers that Obama "Promptly took his shoes off, got on the mat, and said his grandmother would be proud there were no holes in his socks."

    The SuperPAC supporting Barack Obama, PrioritiesUSA Action, has produced an ad showing a man who claims is wife died of cancer because the steel plant at which he worked was closed by Mitt Romney. When he lost his job, Joe Soptic says, he lost his health insurance. "A short time later," he says, his wife got sick, but didn't tell him because they didn't have insurance. By the time he took her to the hospital she was diagnosed with cancer from which she died about two weeks later. The story is true in its facts, but it is a total...
  • Obama backers won’t pull ‘disgusting’ TV ad

    Supporters of President Obama refused Thursday to pull a TV ad suggesting that Republican Mitt Romney caused a woman to die from cancer, a commercial that’s raising new questions about possible coordination between the Obama campaign and an “independent” advocacy group founded by a former White House staffer. “You know, in the past when somebody pointed out that something was inaccurate, campaigns either pulled the ad — they were embarrassed,” Mr. Romney said Thursday on Bill Bennett’s “Morning in America” radio show. “Today, they just blast ahead.” But officials at Priorities USA, a super PAC founded by former White House...
  • CancerGate: Obama Campaign's Cold-Blooded Lies

    Election '12: Until lately, the media have kept President Obama's missteps from doing him much damage. But the outrageous lie his campaign has used to blame Mitt Romney for a cancer death is uncontainable. High likability ratings are one thing the Obama campaign has going for it. Gallup recently found that twice as many registered voters consider Obama "the more likable of the two presidential candidates." His campaign has been exploiting this with "Happy Birthday Barack!" web cards, and ads featuring a supercute Obama family photo.
