Obama Bundler Kills Woman, Media Silent

Posted by on Aug 07, 2012 at 1:39 pm

The disgusting  ad making the rounds today has already blown up in the faces of Team Obama.

The pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action lobbed a heavy-duty attack at Mitt Romney this morning, airing an ad that links the closure of a GST Steel plant in Kansas City to the loss of a family’s health insurance — and the death of a woman some time later.

The man speaking in the ad, Joe Soptic, says, “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 explains he’s not exactly sure when his wife became sick, but that when he took her to the hospital she had undetected, advanced cancer and died 22 days later.

The Romney campaign has pushed back on other GST Steel-related attacks by arguing that the plant in Kansas City closed after he stepped away from his management job at Bain. (Democrats counter that Romney was still listed as a top executive at Bain through 2002, and that he built up the private equity firm during the time it invested in GST Steel.)

In the case of this particularly jarring super PAC ad, it may also be relevant that Soptic’s wife died in 2006, years after the GST factory closed down.

So seven years after Romney really left Bain this woman died. Yet left unmentioned is the fact when the plant closed, it was an Obama bundler running Bain, as noted a few weeks ago when this whole bogus “Romney didn’t leave Bain until 2002″ meme surfaced.

This in itself is a dishonest attack, which will surprise no one, but it gets even more egregious when coupled with this salient fact: one of Barack Obama’s top bundlers, Jonathan Lavine, managing director at Bain, who has bundled between $100,000 and $200,000 in contributions for the 2012 Obama Victory Fund, was one of the guys running Bain when GST went belly-up.

To say these people are dishonest is a massive understatement.

    The absolute masters of Orwellian ‘DoubleSpeak’…the ability to hold two or more contrary ideals in ones head, believing them ALL to be true, and using them as the situation demands….like I said, barry’s crew are the undisputed masters of bullshit!

    About a year ago I tried a little experiment that turned out to be true and incredibly simple: No matter what obama or his cohorts say or do, apply the exact opposite and you’ve gotten to the core! No more, no less…if they say up, look down! If they say obama did this or he did that, KNOW, intuitively, just the opposite is true…and it works, folks!

    ‘I’m a Christian!’- named ‘barak hussien obama’, raised in kenya and jakarta, schooled in muslim ‘theology’ (for lack of better word), brought up by and around, far left radicals, socialist, communists, anachists, etc., mother was a whore, father(s) a. was a dog, loser, sperm donor, liar, theif, embezzler, while father b. was a bigger dog, probable pedophile, dope fiend, wanna-be anarchist, and avowed communist fag!
    ‘I was born in Hawaii’- yet EVERY ‘legal’ document which may support that claim has been buried under executive orders, law suits, document shreds, document forgeries, multiple and way unexplainable documents in places they shouldn’t be, SSN from Conn., SSN from Mi., SSN from Ill., yet not one is area or city correct? Has attempted to force feed the American public with no less than 3 fraudulent BC’s….but…but…but…I was born in Hawaii! Yeah, ok!

    And on and on it goes….try it for yourselves, he says ‘A’…look for “B, C, D, or E’ to be the case!
