Just pathetic. These guys are busted for all to see and just cannot admit they’re caught and try to move on.
Reached for comment, Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt reiterated that the campaign “didn’t produce” the ad and tried to shift the attention to Democratic criticisms of Romney’s business record.
“Joe Soptic suffered when he lost his job in the aftermath of the GST Steel plant closing, and no one is denying that he discussed that when he appeared in a campaign advertisement and on a conference call,” LaBolt said by email.
No one is denying it? Really?
“The important point here is that Mitt Romney’s campaign is based solely on his experience as a corporate buyout specialist, and while he has been quick to claim he created jobs, he refuses to accept responsibility for the jobs that were lost and workers that were impacted,” the spokesman said.
Oh, the important point. Why didn’t you just say so? Otherwise we might’ve suspected this was all coordinated.
Update: Doubling down.
