This is beyond dirty campaigning.
It’s childish and offensive.
The offensive: the cancer ad.
Besides the fact that it’s unfair to blame that on Romney solely, it’s comepletely illogical. Ask all the people with great health insurance who still lost family members to cancer because treatment can only do so much because cancer is an evil persistent bitch. Cancer is like the roach of diseases. You can try to kill it but sometimes it just doesn’t die. Does insurance help? Yea it does. But there are lots of people who have no insurance but fight to live.
And I’m sorry to be this way, but if it killed his wife within 22 days, I’m not sure that insurance would have done anything for her.
Also, fact checking has been done. The ad makes it that the timeline was all together when it really spanned like 5 years. Romney wasn’t even a part of Bain when she was diagnosed and died.
Now, the White House (i.e. Jay Carney’s infinite wisdom) is adamant that Obama had nothing to do with this. But I’ve never been one to believe that superPAC’s do these ads on behalf of the party without advise from their candidates campaign.
The campaign website or white house website or some Obama website is asking people to email in knowledge of potential GOP VP candidates’ records. I.e. they want other people to find out dirt on these guys.
Do your own damn snooping. We’ve done our own damn snooping in the parts of Obama’s records that haven’t been hidden. So go do your own.
