New Lows: Pro-Obama PAC attempts to blame Romney for death of laid off worker’s wife

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Last Tuesday, the pro-Obama PAC, “Priorities USA,” released a scathing new ad accusing Mitt Romney of being kind of responsible for the death of the wife of a steel worker who was laid off by Bain Capital.

Watch the ad below:

“I don’t think Mitt Romney understands what he’s done to people’s lives by closing the plant.

I don’t think he realizes that people’s lives completely changed.

When Mitt Romney and Bain closed the plant, I lost my healthcare, and my family lost their healthcare. And a short time after that my wife became ill.

I don’t know how long she was sick and I think maybe she didn’t say anything because she knew that we couldn’t afford the insurance, and then one day she became ill and I took her up to the Jackson County Hospital and admitted her for pneumonia and that’s when they found the cancer and by then it was stage four. It was, there was nothing they could do for her.

And she passed away in 22 days.

I do not think Mitt Romney realizes what he’s done to anyone, and furthermore I do not think Mitt Romney is concerned.

“You’ve turned me around on this,” Stu said sarcastically after hearing the ad. “Mitt Romney took away his healthcare, and his wife immediately died of cancer.”

“Immediately is a little bit of a stretch,” Pat replied.

Actually, it’s a BIG stretch. As tragic and sad as the story about Soptic’s wife is, Romney had left Bain Capital seven years before this happened. On top of that, after Soptic was laid off, his wife still had access to health insurance through her own job.

So, just add this to the list of baseless smear tactics Team Obama is willing to use to win this election.

    Understand clearly – even with these new “lows of lows’ that have been found and proven to be baseless across the board; the Democratic leadership neither is concerned nor cares about the veracity of their claims. They will, between now and November, unleash wave after wave of attack ads that will make this one pale by comparison.

    Several democratic commentators have claimed (yeah I know), that there are ad’s that have already been prepared for release, demanding of Romney why he caused the death by suicide and such of former workers who lost their jobs as the man above claims.

    We have only seen the opening barrages; the only hope the Democrats have, aside from the expected fraud, intimidation, court battles and Obama nullifying the elections outright, is to make the voters so disgusted from the ads that they refuse to go and vote.

    They cannot win an honest campaign, so this is all they have left.

    People in politics lie all the time because they just tell us what they want us to hear no matter if it’s on the left or right none will do what is right. I say let us not put blind faith in one party or one man but in Jesus Christ the only one that can fix this country.

    Mitt Romney didn’t cause this woman’s illness.  Just like George W. Bush did not cause earthquakes, tsunamis, and hurricanes.  Even though some people believed he did, seriously they did believe it.  S..t happens.

    What stupid reasoning – blame Romney for this woman’s illness and death several years after the fact of her husbands lost job.  But, using the same idiotic progressive/Marxist style reasoning (or lack there of)  we must be able to draw similar and even worse conclusions about Obama.  We have over two million fewer employed Americans since he took office.  Therefore. Obama must have been responsible for mass murder over this past four years.

    The worst of it is Soptic himself, ghoulishly trading on his wife’s death for some political advantage. He really needs to take a good long look at himself in the mirror and ask himself whether he is still the man his wife married.

    Most of us know by now that Fidel Obama is a habitual liar.

    This is slander, Romney needs to file charges against Obama and his campaign staff.

    Well, they are counting on the stupid in this country to believe them……many do. I have liberal friends that only watch the networks and what they tout. If Andrea Mitchel says Romney kills women, they believe it!

    Hey Snow…notice all the deceivers coming on here ……they are multiplying.

    Mitt Romney gives Pop Rocks and Coke a Cola to kids, he also invented the Opti Grab. I wonder how many will even know what I’m joking about.

     Unfortunately, since the ad was paid for by a super-pac Obama’s admin is claiming that there is nothing they can do.. except for disavowing it of course.

    If his wife had been under Obamacare then he would have had to pay a fine for not having insurance on top of medical bills. No one has mentioned that.

    The bigger point to this ad is that when CEO’s casually lay people off from their jobs, there are real consequences to individuals and families–and every one of you reading this right now could be in exactly the same position because of forces well beyond your control.  The truth is, Bain Capital did close that plant, and many workers did lose their benefits, incomes, pensions, etc.  Why do people side with the 1%, and vote against their own interests?

    Just like so many people believe that China now owns the US.

    Yes, most of us on these posts do. But we’re still outnumbered.

    Obama should get on tv and announce his disdain for this ad which claims Romney killed this guys wife. His speech could begin this way. Look Joe and all u other widowers Mitt did not kill your wife someone else made that happen. And go from there.

    Canal, you do realize that first of all Romney had left Bain Capital 3 years earlier to take over the Olympics and had nothing to do with decisions and management of Bain? And you do realize that his wife still had insurance through her job until she got injured and had to leave her own job.  You do realize that she got cancer and she died in 2006 and the video is totally misleading with the time frame of everything? Do you understand how private equity firms work? They invest in FAILING businesses and try to turn them around.  That steel company was in trouble already so Bain Capital tried to invest in and save it b/c the company was in debt. and so they had to cut back and make it more efficient.  Unfortunately in investing, not everything is guaranteed to succeed.  MOST of Romney’s investments with Bain Capital were successful and created and saved thousands upon thousands of jobs.  But NO, the media rarely mentions the mostly positive side of Bain.

    A this point, it does not matter what the left has to say.  It’s already a done deal, Romney is going to be the next president; he’s already been briefed by the elite.

    I’ve seen this attack ad on Romney and it is far from factual.  Please.  Don’t confuse the libs

    with facts.  It’s their job to confuse the public with lies and deceit in order to get votes for B.O.

    or blind faith in one religion, we the people of the Earth can build a beautiful place for our children to inheriate, The people are the solution not rich politricktions working together to undermine the hardworking people of Earth.  Whether its politricktion from China, Italy, Panama, USA, Syria, Myanmar etc etc they all have personal gains in taking advantage of humans. (Name a politician that was ordinary, for the ordinary person) Maybe    Nelson Mandela
        The people our starving for truth, understanding and a happy healthy life, where everyone has clean water, nutrious food, and basic shelter and health.    Maybe thats to much to ask nevermind

  • greywolfrs

    I love this ad, it is quite funny. Maybe Romney should make an ad for the people who did not get laid off, something like, Mr. Smith’s wife is alive because Bain saved this company from going under so he was able to keep his health insurance.
    Left wingers are beyond dumb, how about looking at the flip side. If Bain had not stepped in, the company would go under and EVERYONE would lose their jobs and health insurance. Oh, my bad, that doesn’t fit into the left wing stupidity…

    I don’t get this.

    The federal government uses tax payer dollars to bailout General Motors and then the President turns around and attacks Romney for doing the same thing with private investor dollars during his time at Bain?

    GM had to downsize, people lost their jobs, plants and dealership were forced to close, and the current CEO is a crony that Obama put on the board of directors during the bailout.

    So when does Obama take responsibility for all the jobs HE destroyed bailing out General Motors?
