In defense of the pro-Obama Super PAC Priorities USA, they probably would have pulled the Joe Soptic ad and replaced it with what they had planned next, but those dicks at The Onion beat them to it.

From the Washington Times:

Supporters of President Obama refused Thursday to pull a TV ad suggesting that Republican Mitt Romney caused a woman to die from cancer, a commercial that is raising questions about suspected coordination between the Obama campaign and an advocacy group founded by a former White House staffer.

“You know, in the past when somebody pointed out that something was inaccurate, campaigns … pulled the ad; they were embarrassed,” Mr. Romney said Thursday on Bill Bennett’s “Morning in America” radio show. “Today, they just blast ahead.”

But officials at Priorities USA, a super PAC founded by former White House spokesman Bill Burton, showed no signs of canceling the advertisement, which began airing this week. Even some Democrats said the ad crossed the line into the realm of the underhanded with its strong inference that Mr. Romney has a dead woman’s blood on his hands.

The ad features steelworker Joe Soptic, who lost his job and health care benefits after Mr. Romney’s Bain Capital closed a steel plant in Kansas City, Mo., in 2001. He describes how his wife developed cancer and died and implies that her death was Mr. Romney’s fault.

Nobody expected an entity supported with a million dollars of Bill Maher’s money to ooze class, did they? They’ll keep running that ad, even though the Dems are going to make sure its star, Joe Soptic, remains harder to find than Bonnie Grape’s G-spot.

Sadly, the collective shamelessness on display this week is just an understated preview of coming attractions.

    Too bad for Dims, even if 'effective', this can only play against them. Old friend in Portland, personal injury trial attorney once explained that when it comes to a jury handing out damage awards; ( they can be incredibly stingy! )

    Voters have already SEEN the spot over and over and the truth is, they're unmoved. They look at how their lives have changed since becoming a (1) income family and the indignities associated with drawing endless unemployment and can't even REMEMBER a time when things felt 'normal'.

    The Obama pResidency now feels longer than the balance of our lives combined and 2006 ( boo-hoo ) feels like ancient freaking history. Sorry!

    “…indignities associated with drawing endless unemployment and can't even REMEMBER a time when things felt 'normal'.”

    “The Obama pResidency now feels longer than the balance of our lives combined…”

    Excellent point.

    After man’s sin, man was cursed to do labor. The point is that labor is from our Creator God. Man draws a sense of self-worth, dignity, and even enjoyment from doing things with his hands and his brain and the rest and good sleep at the end of each day.

    The forced stifling of any individual effort, thought, or spirituality under state controlled, tax-and-spend socialism and the added life oppressing stagnation of communism only breeds discontent and the sort of sops seen in the vodka swilling Russian public and its criminal element, as well as the cradle to grave entitlement mentality which is nothing more than a poorly disguised continuation of a “keep’em-out-of-work-and-beholding-to-us” form of slavery.

    This connection between the Dem SuperPac and the O`Campaign is gonna blow up soon. It may sound like a war zone soon with evidence coming to light and mounting that what the admin. has been denying is precisely what happened. And now we hear from a Senaloa drug cartel member held in Chicago is blowing the lid off the F&F scandal. If true, it`s far more insidious than JUST a means to garner support for stiffer gun control laws; it`s actually gov. / Holder sanctioned drug trafficking and support of the Senaloas !

    Duuuude!

    Don't tease us? Links!

    Sorry, no links yet. I heard this moments ago on Glenn Beck`s radio show, substitute host Joe Paggs.

    I give the charge some legitimacy because well over a year ago, I heard much the same thing. I also mentioned a few months ago about a special squad of Sheriff`s Deputies who have made some huge drug busts here; I wondered how they knew about the runners. It seems as though they are being told by the Senaloas. In the rare occasions that a cartel connection is mentioned in the story in the paper, it`s usually the Zetas. Curious.

    Speaking of "singing", while I was listening to Joe telling the story, I was thinking, "Sing dude ……… you gonna DIE !!!"

    Joe also mentioned that the Mexicans (Senaloas ?) have pretty well taken over the drug biz in Chicago; the Italians / Mafia no longer hold a candle to them for ruthlessness, efficiency and turf !

    If the Prosecutor played this long enough, he'd confess to anything!

    Yeah ya' always have to wonder WHY certain areas are over run by drug smugglers when logistically and population wise it makes almost no sense. Much as happened during the 80's w/ the coke trade. Protected transhipment points in some backwater FL/GA/AL County.

    All because some sheriff didn't think his pension plan was generous enough?

    Patti,

    Isn't what we 'think' it is? That takin' to the HNL ( Hole 'nother level )

    Given the prosecution is coming out of Chicago, we'll take any intel we can glean w/ copious amounts of salt. Disinformation is their specialty. The def. uses the guise of "as long as the intel keeps coming" and I find that preposterous.

    We already have stacks of bodies and mass graves, MadMax like rigs complete with ramming devices as front bumpers and blood in the streets. It's a broken down narco-state. What's there to gather intel 'on'? Why would this or any other Admin. take sides w/ 1 cartel over the other? Especially when they can and probably HAVE supplied guns to BOTH.

    I'll exercise healthy caution on this one…

    All one has to do is look at the murder rate and figure that out. Mayor Twinkle Toes should be very afraid!!!

    Thanks for the follow up, Patti; I should have thought of The Blaze !
