tyler, tx — Excuse my comfy appearance.
I'm working on a project today and was supposed to be off - air, but could not let this go.
President Obama has been bashing Mitt Romney's superPAC ads, calling them lies and malicious.
When now, the president's group got caught with the biggest whopper of them all.
For the last year, team Obama has been trotting out this union guy to use in their ads.
The first was about Romney having no heart and closing down Joe Soptic's plant. The second one just came out this week, accusing Romney of murdering his Soptic's wife because Bain shut down the plant and his wife didn't have insurance for her illness.
Well, this ad and all the team Obama whoppers about it have been called out by CNN.
CNN reports this.
Here is a chronological rundown of what happened: In 2001, Joe Soptic loses his job when Bain closes the plant. He was offered a buyout.
Funny, that was not reported.
His wife still has insurance, though, from her employer, Savers Thrift Store.
A year later, Romney formerly leaves Bain, and it's that year, 2002 or perhaps 2003, Soptic tells CNN that his wife leaves her job because of an injury. That's when she became uninsured without fallback insurance from her husband. A few years later, in 2006, she goes to the hospital, is diagnosed with cancer, and dies just days later.
Romney is as far away from this as the north and south pole.
And the kicker to it all--- Obama's deputy campaign manager says she knows nothing about Joe Soptic, the laid off worker in the SuperPAC ad.
Well, a little reporting shows she introduced him on a weekly democratic strategy call and briefed the audience what Soptic was going to talk about.
Election law violation?
I'll guess we'll turn that over to the Department of Justice....wait....
That's my point of view, what's yours?
