The Obama Super Pac, Priorities USA, has a new ad out linking Mitt Romney to the death of the wife of a steel worker who lost his job and health insurance after Bain Capital, the firm once headed by Romney, closed the plant in 2001 after Romney had given up operational control.
Here's what the Obama Pac had Joe Soptic, the steel worker who lost his job, say:
“Mitt Romney and Bain closed the plant, I lost my health care and my family lost their health care. And a short time after that my wife became ill.”Soptic admits that he doesn't know WHEN his wife became ill but she died of cancer FIVE YEARS AFTER THE PLANT WAS CLOSED!
What makes the ad an absolute and total lie is the fact that Joe Soptic's wife HAD INSURANCE on her own after the period when Joe was laid off.
How, in good conscience (oh never mind, we're talking about Obama) can anyone infer Romney had a role in this woman's death years after her husband lost his job which was already past the time that Romney had removed himself from Bain's management?
And should we also forget that it was an Obama fundraiser who was running Bain during this same period?
What this ad from the Obama Pac shows is that his campaign will say ANYTHING to change the subject from Obama's appalling and transparent incompetence and corruption. But now, Obama's fundraisers are KILLING people to make their point!
