Obama campaign admits the truth that they knew about Soptic’s story

This from a press gaggle on Air Force One yesterday:

Q: Jen, you said yesterday the campaign wasn’t aware of Joe Soptic’s background and it turns out there was a conference call about it. Is that still the case?

MS. PSAKI: Well, it’s worth repeating, just so everybody is reminded, that we had nothing to do with the ad. We can’t speak to what they were trying to convey by the ad or communicate. No one is denying that he was in a campaign — one of our campaign ads. He was on a conference call telling his story, which speaks to what many, many people in this country have gone through as there have been layoffs and they’ve had their benefits reduced.

So I think what’s clear here, again, is that we are — hold on, we are about to land — what’s clear here, again, is that we’re focusing so much on an ad that has not run yet, that is done by an outside group. …

They may not be denying that he was in your campaign ad, but they were denying everything else!

In any event, they’ve been forced to admit the truth, well at least a partial truth. But for some reason it’s not plastered everywhere that they lied about it. Hmmm. Maybe ABC News’ Jonathan Karl will jump right on that.

    Now listen, the point is not that we lied about not knowing anything about this. The point is that we still believe the lie is true. The point is that someone else is telling this lie and we believe it’s true.

    Nevermind that we lied when we said we didn’t know about the lie. Listen to what I’m saying now. This is truly true. Not like that untrue kind of true.

      Love it steprock !!!! errrr truly…. 😉

    • badbadlibs

      In other words, don’t believe your lying ears. But, you said it much better!

    • steprock

      And totally off topic

      Thanks for over 6,000 “likes” on my posts. I hope I bring common sense and fair-mindedness in addition to my occasional ticked-off rants!

      • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

        Congrats, steprock – RS-ers do not like lightly.

    • bobemakk

      Is this true? (joking)….love your play on words.

    This is one of the most dangerous things facing this nation – a complicit and inaccurate media. It’s criminal what they’re getting away with and how they cover for this dictator.

    • steprock

      100% right!

      You DO-NOT-EVER get a dictator if you don’t control the media, unless you have a full out military takeover and THEN you control the media.

      For them to willingly comply is unthinkable, and downright criminal. It’s a subversive coup d’etat and those scoundrels are going right along with it! I’m looking at you, Chris Matthews.

      • westernhunter

        We need a revolution on the media.

    • I agree , they are complicit the crimes, lies, and decit, coming from the high office of obamaville, Americans need a Blind Justice Department that will use the law equally fair, once Americans had that type of DOJ. then came change. Now it’s naked, shameless, and wrapped with all forms of corruption. That is unless you wear a hoodie.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Good point.

      • thanks sober.
        sorry about the all type O’s

  • johnos2112

    I am looking forward to the debates. I think Romney will do really well. Obama is going to have trouble. We shall see.

    • westernhunter

      I might just disagree with you a little. You see Obama is a great liar, you think the moderators will call him on the lies he say’s, if anyone does it will be the next day when no one is paying attention. Hope I’m wrong but that’s the way I see it.

      • johnos2112

        Why I like Romney in the debates is because the truth will come out.  I heard a rumor that some really sharp conservative people have joined the campaign.  So do not discount Obama getting fed his lunch despite what the idiots in the media say.  They are irrelevant.  The truth will come out and that will about do it for the Obama people.  Having said that, Mr. Romney needs to explain his plans in easy terms for everyone to understand and I think he will.

    Revelations 21:8 ““But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all LIARS—their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

  • Soptic man is a LIAR AND FRAUD….I feel not once ounce of sympathy for this man. Oh please spear me about his wife. HE MADE IT POLITICAL SLAM HIM WITH IT!! His wife had insurance after he lost his job….GST ALSO OFFERED HIM A BUYOUT and HE SAID NO….and GST stay opened for a few years longer because Bain invested. Hey Stupid….do you know GST would have gone out 3 years sooner!! But nevermind that to this TWO BIT PHONY!! Romney left Bain long before this and I say this to SOPTIC…HEY JERK….all those 90,000 or so people that work at STAPLES….that Bain and Romney founded….All the cancers, babies, children, teeth, arthritis, heart surgeries, broken bones, depression and other diseases that are COVERED BY STAPLES…I GUESS SHOULD THANK MITT ROMNEY FOR ALL THOSE SUCCESSES????? And that is just one of the many successes from BAIN!!! STICK THAT IN YOUR PITY AD SOPTIC and OBAMA!

    • Rightstuff1

      Septic Soptic – a typical lying your ass off Dem shyster, a fruad, lying about his wife’s death from which he is trying to make political capital for his enslaver in chief. Just like Obama lied and lies about his mothers “struggle” with meeting the bills for her cancer when it was all taken care of.

      Dems Lie, Truth Die !!!!

  • 911Infidel

    Maybe Brian Ross will do one of his “investigations”. Nah. That would take a real reporter to do that, and ABC is fresh out of those.

    • so are, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, Headline News, NPR, etc.. I’m glad Al Gore invented the internet now we have those pesky cirtizen reporters.
      is it any wonder 3.20.2009:Jay Rockefeller said he wishes Al Gore had not invented the Internet LOL- No just kidding about Fockefeller and al Gore.
      3.20.2009 Jay Rockefeller did say in a commerce committee hearing, The internet should have never existed.
      Clearly Americans knowing the truth is a hinderence to their global mission.

    “which speaks to what many, many people in this country have gone through as there have been layoffs and they’ve had their benefits reduced.”

    She was speaking about her bo’s polices and their effects, correct?

    • Rightstuff1

      Oh my goodness didn’t you know????? wait for it now…..and altogether now…. “It’s all Bushes fault”.

      Well done – now that you have mastered and uttered “Lib thought process 101″ we shall now proceed to lesson 2 where we will discuss the evil 1%”

      • warpmine

        I thought lesson two was discussing the saved or created metric.

  • Linky1

    And like everything else connected with the stench of this administration, they will get away with it.

  • williamm

    Nothing changes the fact that Stephanie cutter lied in the statement ” I don’t know the facts about when Mr. Soptic’s wife got sick, or the facts about his health insurance, but here’s what I do know “.


    Here is the Link to conference call with Stephanie Cutter and Soptic.

    If you thought the obvious lies from the Obama adminstration were bad enough, now they are lying about their lies and lying to each other. The saddest part is that a large percentage of voters cannot tell the difference between a lie and the truth or actually could care less because the truth doesn’t matter. Obama realizes this and will exploit this mentality to the max as he is incapable of the truth and this fits his agenda perfectly.

    • actionsspeaklouder

      It is their intent to confuse. Keep the public confused. It’s intentional.

    • we must spread the truth.

    Yesterday, saw something about how the obamessiah screwed the Delco? non union employees (the real workers) in the process of the Govt Motors bankruptcy. Why not take this ad, replace Bain with Obama, GS with Govt Motors, tweak a few other details and really rub it in their faces.

    This ad wouldn’t have any issues with lies, as it would be factually correct.

  • lilium479

    This is a crime!

  • actionsspeaklouder

    I truly hope that the despicable way Axelrod & Co., is running Obama’s dishonest, anything goes, scorched earth campaign backfires right in their faces – just like the Occupy “movement” has done. Notice how they all stear clear (on the outside) of supporting OWS now that everyone sees and is appauled with their unAmerican and unlawful antics. Most Americans are peace-loving, law abiding and take offense to blatant damaging lies, smears and bullying. How anyone can support Obama, if they are paying attention, is shocking. America’s heart is breaking and Obama flips us the bird every chance he gets.

    • liberalism is a state of mind kinda like a zombies mental disorder.

      I ignor the lies it’s the salt bath, that’s crap.
      I enjoy my epson salt with it’s natural Magnesium and Sulfate bath twice a week. Haven’t ate my dog or my neighbors cat….yet! LOL (:
      YOUTUBE It! You’ll be glad you did. great stuff.
      sorry didn’t mean to stray of topic.

    Cancergate given to the American people from the Liar-in-Chief.

  • mediaaccess1

    I share almost everything from here. 🙂 I wonder if anyone is listening.

    • Americans are listening.
      Many brilliant, good, and kind people visit and post concerns and solutions on this site , myself being absence of any brilliance, but I read, learn, study, and then share with others. I’ve found race isn’t a hinderence to truth, in shops, malls, and restaurants Americans are listening, all we have to do is bring up the subject.
      this site has been a great find.
