    Interesting that Stephanie Cutter claimed that they knew nothing about the guy's story and yet, I heard audio tape on Hannity last night of her thanking the guy after he told his story to her in a conference call.

    Obama camp denies knowledge of cancer tale it told in May
    By Olivier Knox, Yahoo! News | The Ticket – 16 hrs ago

    Oops? President Barack Obama's re-election campaign washed its hands Wednesday of an independent group's vicious (and misleading) ad effectively blaming Mitt Romney for the death of a laid-off steelworker's wife from cancer. Campaign officials flatly denied any knowledge of the facts in the case—but it turns out the widower told the same story on an Obama campaign conference call in mid-May. (The Obama campaign responded late in the day: See update below).

    Oh they are busted for lying about the lying in the lying ad. :D And I love it!!!!!

    Asked about the spot, Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs stressed that the super PAC is not connected to the campaign.

    “This is an ad by an entity that’s not controlled by campaign. I certainly don’t know the specifics of this man’s case,” he said on MSNBC.

    Under questioning, he said again: “I don’t know the specifics of this person’s case.”

    Obama campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said on CNN,

    “I don’t know the facts about when Mr. Soptic’s wife got sick, or the facts about his health insurance.”

    All of this is simply lies. The Obama campaign has known all along about Mr. Soptic’s story. They not only ran the previous video, but they started a website RomneyEconomics.com in which they displayed numerous slides on Mitt Romney, GST Steel and Joe Soptic.

    According to Politico the campaign even had a conference call with Mr. Soptic.

    Then there's this on Cutter.

    Cutter said she didn't know when Soptic's wife fell ill, or about his health insurance.

    Yet in May of this year, Cutter herself hosted a conference call in which Soptic detailed his case to reporters. During the call, as he did in the ad, Soptic explained how his wife fell ill after he lost his job, and how he lost his health insurance. The call took place as Soptic began appearing in Obama campaign ads, and was featured in a profile on the Obama campaign website.

    The campaign profile listed Soptic as one of the "faces of Romney economics."

    Cutter wasn't the only Obama campaign official caught up in the controversy.

    "This is an ad by an entity that's not controlled by campaign. I certainly don't know the specifics of this man's case," campaign adviser Robert Gibbs said on MSNBC. Another Obama campaign spokeswoman separately told reporters that the campaign had no knowledge of the family involved.

    And this is the nail in their coffin for lying about the lying ad.

    His Chicago style politics worked, once............unfortunately some people will fall for this again. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Their messiah couldn't possibly lie, he told them so.

    The facts speak for themselves irregardless of any supposed controversy meant to deflect the message being narrated by the former employee and his real life experience.

    So when do 1/2 truths become lies. If your teenager takes your car out, gets drunk, kills someone and all he tells you is he took the car out, is he lying???
