Will Voters Finally Get Tired of Obama Campaign's Lying?
That seemed to be the attitude of many voters who have been fervently supporting Obama up until recently.
Despite any of scores of reasons why re-electing King Obama to the
presidency would be a bad idea, a maddeningly large number of his
supporters just would not let reality sink in.
The recent video blaming Mitt Romney for the death of a woman with cancer, though, may have finally punched a hole through the Obama camp’s defenses.
In the video, Joe Soptic tells the tragic story of his wife’s death
and essentially lays it at Romney’s doorstep. No surprise from the Obama
camp, the video isn’t exactly truthful. For one thing, despite his
claims in the video, Soptic’s wife apparently had her own insurance
after his layoff. Also, the video paints a direct link between Soptic’s
layoff and his wife’s illness. She actually died five years after he was
laid off, seven years after Romney left Bain Capital.
The Obama camp has been trying to run from any connection to the ad,
saying they had no knowledge of Soptic’s story before the Priorities USA
ad aired. However, Obama adviser Stephanie Cutter was caught on tape
earlier this year thanking Soptic for telling his story during a
The ad and the impromptu coverup by the Obama camp has been so vile
that even former Clinton adviser Lanny Davis called it “misleading and
The ad has apparently backfired on the campaign. According to Gallup,
King Obama’s approval rating dropped 3 percent and his disapproval
rating rose 3 percent since the commercial came out. Support for Romney
rose 1 percent. The Rasmussen Poll also showed Romney gaining support
off the ad.
Perhaps rattled by the backlash, Team Obama seems to be regrouping on
its primary plan to attack Romney with phony claims of tax fraud and
other financial crimes.
In addition to Sen. Harry Reid’s slander about “someone” telling him
Romney’s a tax cheat, the newest Obama ad accuses Romney of involvement
in the “notorious tax scandal” in which Marriott International took
advantage of a tax shelter called the “Son of Boss” shelter, which was
later challenged by the Department of Justice.
Romney spent six years as the chairman of the Marriott audit
committee. His campaign, though, says suggestions that he personally
knew about any underhanded dealings are false and come from an op-ed
piece published last week on CNN.com by — shocking — two big Democratic
All of this distraction, of course, is because Obama’s record is that
of a mind-numbingly incompetent, anti-American, lying weasel. So the
strategy is to shower Romney with false accusations that he feels
obliged to answer and leave the impression that he is even more
incompetent than the socialist in chief.
While there are some signs that people are seeing through these tactics, so far they seem to be working.
