Obama already gutting Medicare–the Ryan plan will bring it back
By Sher Zieve
The Obama syndicate’s (aka the Obama regime) campaign lies have hit new and previously unprecedented heights…or lows as it were. Delving into uncharted dark and murky waters,
one of Obama’s first reelection campaign lies came about in an Obama-Ad that claimed Mitt Romney, while at Bain Capital, was a “corporate raider” and while governor of Massachusetts sent American jobs overseas to India. Both of these claims are false, as reported by the liberal Washington Post who advised in its article “4 Pinocchios for Obama’s newest anti-Romney ad”:
“The claim that Romney outsourced jobs as governor is equally overblown. This concerns Romney’s veto of a bill that would have prohibited Massachusetts from contracting with companies that outsourced the state’s work to other countries. Lawmakers were especially concerned about a $160,000-a-month contract with Citigroup to operate a system of electronic food-stamp cards that included a customer phone service center in India.
“Both the liberal editorial page of the Boston Globe and conservative editorial page of the Boston Herald urged Romney to veto the amendment, saying it would cost the state money. Romney agreed, saying the measure did not protect state jobs — the call center might have moved from India to another state — but “had the potential of costing our citizens a lot more money.” The Democratic-dominated Massachusetts legislature did not override his veto, even though it overturned 117 others, suggesting that there was little real support for the measure.
“When the food-stamp contract expired, the Massachusetts Department of Transitional Assistance insisted that those jobs be returned to the United States. But they ended up in a call center based in Utah — just as Romney had predicted.”
Then there is the Obama-Ad “Mitt Romney Killed My Wife ,” in which long-time leftist Democrat operative Joe Soptic actually uses the death of his wife and purports to blame Romney for her demise — essentially calling him a murderer — in order to gain support the Obama campaign. The glaring problem with this Ad is that virtually all of the information contained in it is patently false. Soptic claimed that Romney caused him to lose his job when his company was forced to close under a “Bain Capital” deal. False. Romney had been gone from Bain years before this deal was constructed and had been working full-time on saving the 2002 Olympic Games. Soptic said that it was Romney’s fault that his wife didn’t have health care when she contracted cancer and, subsequently, passed away 5-6 years later. False. Soptic’s wife HAD health insurance where she worked.
Note: I’d say that I feel sorry for Joe Soptic’s loss but, he’s both lying about virtually everything that happened and then — in true leftist fashion — using his wife’s death to further the Marxist cause. As former Obama Chief is Staff Rahm Emanuel said “Never let a crisis [or in this case a wife's death] go to waste!”
