Obama Campaign LIES With Ease…
Obama Campaign LIE Caught On Tape – UPDATE – Obama Campaign Now Admits Lie
Yesterday the Obama campaign aggressively denied knowing the details of an anti-Romney campaign ad that is now being declared among the most vile and misleading ads in American political history. Today, it is being proven they LIED.
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.
…”I don’t know the facts about when Mr. Soptic’s wife got sick, or the facts about his health insurance,” deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter told CNN on Wednesday.
But there’s a problem. As Politico first reported, Soptic told essentially the same story in a May 14, 2012, conference call hosted by the Obama campaign.
Here is the audio of Mr. Soptic telling his anti-Romney story to representatives of the Obama campaign back in May. This audio is undeniable proof of the Obama campaign’s repeated lie regarding the now widely rebuked campaign ad, as well as further indicating the entire story was a well rehearsed product that likely had direct input from Obama campaign operatives. Simply put – the campaign to re-elect Barack Obama appears quite willing to say and do anything to defeat Mitt Romney. If they are so willing to so easily lie about knowledge of a campaign ad, what else will they lie about – and what other things have they lied about already?
Is this the kind of president America needs at this time – or any time?

UPDATE: OBAMA CAMPAIGN NOW ADMITS THEY KNEW DETAILS BEHIND ANTI-ROMNEY CANCER AD
Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki acknowledged Thursday that the campaign was no longer pleading ignorance about the story of a man who has appeared in both a super PAC ad and a campaign ad.
“No one is denying he was in one of our campaign ads. He was on a conference call telling his story,” Psaki told reporters on Air Force One.
Distancing themselves from the controversial ad, Obama campaign staffers initially denied knowledge of Soptic’s story — despite the fact that he was in an Obama campaign ad.
Adviser Robert Gibbs said he didn’t know “specifics,” while deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said on CNN: “I don’t know the facts about when Mr. Soptic’s wife got sick or the facts about his health insurance.”
And yesterday on Air Force One, Psaki said, “we don’t have any knowledge of the story of the family.”
UPDATE: Amanda Henneberg, a spokesperson for the Romney campaign, said this in a statement: “President Obama’s campaign has been caught lying about its knowledge concerning a vicious smear run by his Super PAC. And now, they have doubled down with another dishonorable and dishonest attack. In 2008, candidate Obama said ‘you make a big election about small things’ when you don’t have a record to run on. Since President Obama can’t run on record unemployment, falling incomes, and massive debt, he has decided to run a dirty campaign that is an affront to everything he claims to stand for.”
