BUSTED: Obama campaign caught lying about the Soptic story

This from the Romney campaign:

Obama Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter: “I Don’t Know The Facts…” CNN’S JOHN BERMAN: “He’s suggesting she died because of the action that Mitt Romney took. Mitt Romney of course had left Bain years before that Bain took over this company and then his wife died years after. What’s going on? Is that accurate? Is that fair?” CUTTER: “Well John, here are the facts. 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. That Mitt Romney personally handled the deal to take over GS Steel and he personally handled some of the decisions made to load that company up with debt so much that it went underwater.  It went bankrupt.” (CNN, 8/8/12)

Not true. Turns out Stephanie Cutter held a OFA conference call back in May where Joe Soptic read her the entire story on the phone. I say “read” because he is clearly reading a prepared statement and not just telling it off the cuff:



Interesting that he read from prepared remarks – it’s almost like someone suggested he write it all down and to call in and tell his story, perhaps someone from OFA. But even so, this is an Obama campaign conference call where Soptic is telling his story, not Priorities USA or any other SuperPAC. The Obama campaign knew Soptic’s full story because they were told by him directly and somehow or another he ended up at Burton’s SuperPAC and Stephanie Cutter knows nothing about it and hides behind the law that says they can’t work with SuperPACs.

The truth is out that these people are lying their butts off. I know, you should see my shocked face. But still, evidence means much more than any suspicion. Spread the word.

There’s more at the Romney campaign website if you want to take a look.

Now it has been revealed, that ole Joe was offered a buyout package from Bain and he turned it down. He also intentionally didn’t place his wife on his new coverage at his new job.

That press call is hilarious. Could Joe have not read in a more monotone voice?? Even the “now I’ll turn the call back over to Stephanie” was written in the piece.

“I do think that most people think that if you’re CEO you’re still in charge.” Unless your the president right? Then your not in charge and it’s all any other reason but you.

Romney needs to take this argument right back to Obama on his job. “Mr Obama if I was still running day to day operations because I had the title of CEO and any company that was closed under my tenure at Bain as CEO is my responsibility, then why is this economy and the jobless rate not your responsibility as President?”

I obviously think that the POTUS should have very little if anything to do with the economy at all but Obama wants to keep inserting himself and the gov’t into it and screwing it up he can at least take some responsibility for it.

Obama has lied about his entire background and personal bio. Why do you think Bill Clinton said “this whole thing is a fairy tale” referring to Obama’s past and only shut up about it AFTER Bill’s good friend & Arkansas DNC chair was murdered? We don’t have a President. We have a punk that operates Chicago gang style using intimidation and character assignation techniques to get what they want. Obama’s history and REAL life story are revealed in this movie and in 2016 by Dinesh D’Souza. Please help it go viral by sharing and tweeting all over the net while we can. Obama is doing so badly in the polls…the real polls, that he’ll use his March Ex. Order to shut down the net soon and declare Martial Law. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jim-garrison/martial-law-under-another_b_1370819.html Time is of the essence. STAND UP. More false flags are coming including an attack on him to garner sympathy.… Read more »

Where is the “lie?” I read article 3 times….in “bold:” > I don’t know the facts….Are you saying that she is “lying” about knowing facts? Evidence?

Andrea S. & Stephanie C. = “tie?”

My opinion: A Superpac (Obama’s) side running an ad [that implies Romney holds responsibility for a worker’s plight of losing wife to cancer as well as his job…] would do well to be “repudiated” by Obama campaign for the cause of decency.

He had plenty of time to get insurance at another job, too. It was his own fault he didn’t have insurance five years later.

This reminds me of that commercial where a guy goes to a bar and ends up being hunted by Charlie Sheen with a bow and arrow. Soptic’s logic works like that commercial.

Jim made me stub my toe because I leaped to avoid him. So I put a band-aid on it. Because of the band-aid I couldn’t feel the spider in my sock and I got bit. So I went to the emergency room. There I met the doctor’s wife. We had an affair. When the doctor found out he chased me down the street with a shotgun. He shot me in the leg. It was Jim’s fault I got shot in the leg.

CNN just set there and let this woman spew her inaccurate talking points–she should have been made to explain where all of the garbage came from–make he prove at least some of it–not just let her go on and on. This is why CNN is in the dump and sinking fast. And they are too pre-occupied with wiping Obama’s butt to see it.

This is disgusting, the meaning of ‘media’ is now very different it seems. ‘Mouthpiece’ is the more proper term, not knowing anything or caring to know but following what you ‘think’ is right as a good enough reason is insanity. ‘Should be’, ‘has to be’, ‘must be the truth’, ‘Doesn’t matter I, I know whats right.’ are familiar words of not caring what garbage is said to the world as they believe the ends justifies the means. Both ends of the pipe are sewage, and there she is: spouting it.

Lies need to be punished not de-bunked. Punishment is not loosing an election.

There must be consequences, public floggings, ostracism, branding with an “L” on the forehead or use of judicial and administrative power to suppress such behavior publicly and permanently.

Adam Smith may be given absolution by the woman he abused but I can guarantee you than the woman’s husband will never feel similarly.

A society can either take the bull by its horns or take the horn.

I love it when idiots like this moron say that we Americans are beginning to dislike Romney. Well I am an American that is begining to like Romney more and more. Most of the Americans I know feel the same including my Democratic friends. Romney is likable more and more because he is a stand up guy with experience. Obama is nothing more than a mystery of lies and made up credentials. I would say most Americans I know despise Obama and lying borg-drones such as this airhead on CNN. More and More…..

A stupefyingly STUPID response unless the GOP candidate does intend to tinker with the disaster that is 0zerocare instead of repealing it wholesale.

Well, yesterday I was a bit hopeful that CNN might be getting back some journalistic integrity, but the guy doing the interview with Cutter was pathetic. He allowed her the talking points without taking her to task about the truth.

Cutter is a female Axelrod, Chicago thugs both. They are despicable human beings.

Politics is ALL lies, and you are ALL gullible. Period. Mitt RMoney is NOT the man for the Republican Party, plain and simple. He would be if he would find a principle and stand by it. I’m sick of where the GOP has gone- McCain catered to the masters of the far-right in ’08, losing his opportunity, and now RMoney is doing the same thing. What, we can’t have a center-right President any more? 36 years ago, David Koch tried to run for President and we said he was just too radical. Now, the party is under the thumb of his money and policies. Shoot, according to today’s leaders Reagan would be a friggin’ Lefty. We need to take the party back from idiots like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann, which would put the country back on the right track.

Who would you suggest sir? What we have now needs to be defeated. That is what we can control today sir. What we can control in the future are to elect people like Allen West who deal with the constitution.

So, I take it you’re not a Tea Party kind of guy. For those that regularly post comments here, I think we all agree that Romney wasn’t our first, second or third choice, but let’s face it, that’s what we’ve got.

As far as Reagan being considered a “leftist”……. I want some of whatever you’re smoking! We want to take the Rep.’s back to Conservative, Constitutional principles. The RINO’s must go!

The thing I don’t understand is time after time the Obama administration has been caught lying, spreading faslehoods, attempting to decieve, you name it and still the media does nothing!? Why is the media willing to save Obama’s butt to the point of self corruption and incrimination?! It almost seems surreal and other-worldly.

I think they’re so far in, they have to write their own scripts to try and find a way out. They’re still really hoping that this whole blogosphere will go unnoticed. I was talking to my very young and naive neighbor (age23) and he was just starting to recognize that the tv news is really untrustworthy. He was really surprised by this. So of course I shared with him some more valuable news sources, like TRS.

And Soptic, I will lose my health insurance because I cannot afford to pay the 118% premium increase I was just notified of or the 40% excise tax I will have to pay because my health insurance is too good. I’m a cancer survivor so O’Bambi will be personally responsible for my death.

This is so-o-o-o typical of the Liberal mindset. It seems they will lie when the truth would make a better story. Must be in the DNA or something. The media has even quit trying to cover up the spin they put on the recordings, er, uh, ‘rePorting’ they get from their boss (The Regime) before they get the ‘ok’ to print or speak. They will lie when everyone else knows the truth. What’s up with that kinda stinkin’ thinkin’?
It is such a joy to know that each lie they get caught in just drives another conservative nail in Oblame-o’s political coffin! Now all we gotta do is bury all of that rotten policy ideology in November.

I’m betting the steel mill’s closing had something to do with the open trade agreement Clinton had with China and other Communist nations and how steel can be made and shipped over here for less than 1/2 the cost of it being made in the US. Removing those tariffs will prove to cost us much more when unemployment reaches over 50% you can bet on that!

Pretty desperate when you have to make up negative stories just to have something to say. It’s also pretty desperate when you can’t talk about the positive things you are going to do to bring this country out of debt, focus on issues. Still pretty desperate when all you can do is try to bring someone else down (to your level). Pretty desperate campaign – and also pretty pathetic – and not pretty at all.
