Women losing coverage under Obamacare, too
Topic - Joe Soptic
Panic is never pretty, and it leads men to say foolish things — even presidents and their friends and flunkies. The wicked flee when none pursue, but sometimes they flee when facts are gaining on them.
Public figures' records are fair game in political campaigns. It's not "mudslinging" unless it's untrue or employs "derogatory personal slurs," according to the Living Webster Dictionary.
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.
Mr. Soptic told CNN she worked until 2002 or 2003 when she quit because of an injury.
Those prevarications unraveled when it turned out that Mr. Soptic had told the story during an Obama campaign conference call led by deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter in May and even had starred in an Obama campaign ad, also in May.
