Reporters Push White House To Respond To Obama Ad
REPORTER: The Priorities Super PAC has an ad out today that features an ad from a man who works at a Steel plant that closed in 2001, this was after it was acquired by Bain Capital and the implication is that Mitt Romney bears responsibility for the death of this man’s wife because he lost his insurance when the plant closed in 2001 and in 2006 his wife, was uninsured at the time, died of cancer. I’m wondering if the President believes Mitt Romney shares responsibility in her death?
JAY CARNEY, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: You know, I have not seen the ad and I would refer you to the campaign or to the organization. I can’t comment on the ad.
REPORTER: You just took a very vocal position on an ad from a conservative?
CARNEY: Well, an ad that falsely, dishonestly represents the President’s current policy. I haven’t seen this, I don’t, I can’t respond to it.
REPORTER: Will you look at it?
CARNEY: I think I would refer you to the President’s re-election campaign
REPORTER: But if you see it and you’re responding to ads by conservative Super PAC will you
CARNEY: I’m simply saying that I have not seen this, so how could I possibly assess it?
REPORTER: Will you assess it later?
CARNEY: If you ask me tomorrow, sure.
