Four weeks after the terror attack in Benghazi we still haven’t gotten a straight answer from the Obama crew. So what to do to distract the public? Why, make some weak accusations against Mitt Romney for allegedly lying during his debate beatdown of Obama.
President Obama’s campaign has launched an all-out attack on Mitt Romney’s truthfulness to pivot the narrative away from his weak debate performance on Wednesday night.
The Obama team hopes the push — coupled with new, encouraging jobs numbers released on Friday — can reset the race after the candidates’ first showdown gave new vitality to the Romney campaign and left Team Obama reeling.
Surrogates for the Obama campaign have challenged Romney on claims the Republican candidate made during the campaign, and on Friday, Obama’s team released a series of five web videos lashing out at what they call “blatant falsehoods.”
“Mitt Romney didn’t tell the American people the truth on Wednesday night,” an Obama campaign official said. “He lied his way through the debate because he knows his ideas would hurt the middle class. Romney doesn’t want to be held accountable for wht he’s been saying for the last year because he knows that voters don’t want what he’s selling.”
Obama blames a video for a colossal security lapse in Libya, but hey, look over there! Romney’s lying!
