Latest Obama Ad Fail:
Woman Who Claims
To Be Republican Who
Will Vote For Obama
This Time Around
Has Been A Registered
Are we used to this by now? I think we're used to this by now. It's clear that this is not a fact-checking problem with Team Obama and the PAC's out there shilling for him. They're simply making stuff up and desperately trying to find something that will stick.
Here's the new Obama ad in which we hear several women who self-identify as Republicans claim they are going to vote for Obama in November:
Yes, one of them actually says "Obama" and "small government" in the same sentence.
Used to be by the time everyone figured out the deception, the issue was over, so why not get all clever and put out propaganda like this. Amazing how fast the internet is now blowing up these attempts, isn't it?
Zeke Miller at Buzzfeed was the 1st to call BS:
One of the women in the Obama campaign's new video of Republicans supporting the president because of GOP positions on women's rights appears not to be a Republican at all.
Maria Ciano who is featured in the web video has been a registered Democrat since October 2006 according to voter registration records.
"People like me and my family have realized that the Republican Party once was inline with our views, but are no longer," the Colorado resident says in the video.Ed Morrissey at Hot Air opines:
It’s certainly possible that Ms. Ciano had at one time been Republican. Her conversion to Democrat had nothing to do with Mitt Romney, or even Barack Obama, however. And it’s difficult to ascertain exactly what about Romney would have driven the rest of them off, either. One woman cites Romney’s desire to see Roe overturned, as if she’s never heard that argument in the fourdecades that Republicans have been making it. George W. Bush made it just as much of an issue when running for President, if not more; every Republican nominee for President since Reagan has taken that position, as have most of the candidates who failed to get the nomination. This must be one of the most low-information groups of voters ever featured in a national campaign.
It’s easy to understand why Team Obama wants to run a Republican Women for Obama ad. Is it too much to ask that they check first to see if the women are actually Republican first?
Ace at Ace of Spades HQ bluntly puts it this way:
Team Obama has cut another ad. This one features Republican women showing their support for Obama. Not only does it bizarrely claim that "if you're a woman that favors small government, you should vote for Obama", but naturally it turns out they lied and the ad features a registered Democrat posing as a Republican.Naturally the MSM is trotting out it's old 'both sides do it' moral equivalency defense. Right - Mitt's run ads in which he demands to see Obama's tax returns, hints he's a felon, accuses him of causing people to die, and proffered fake Democrats who will vote for him.
Obama's campaign is getting so nasty & dirty to distract from jobs & the economy even some of his usual MSM defenders are starting to getting uncomfortable with providing him with cover.
Fact-checking has already proven that the Obama claim that Mitt's tax plan will raise taxes on the middle class - by $2,000 or any other figure - is completely bogus. Romney's plan calls for an across the board tax CUT for all income classes. Yet the ad that ominously claims Mitt will raise taxes on the middle class continues to run:
Here's Peter Ferrera at The American Spectator breaking down Obama's claims & demonstrating their falsity:
My take is it won't have been just the lousy job Obama did with the economy; it'll also be the way the way he bungled his reelection campaign by consistently & repeatedly getting caught telling huge whoppers.
