Today, during his impromptu press briefing featuring lie after lie, President Obama told a whopper with regard to his campaign and Mitt Romney. “Nobody accused Mr. Romney of being a felon,” said the delusional commander-in-chief. He added, “we point out sharp differences between the candidates, but we don’t go out of bounds.”
In July, Stephanie Cutter, Obama’s deputy campaign spokeswoman, explained, “Either Mitt Romney, through his own words and his own signature, was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the SEC, which is a felony, or he was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American people to avoid responsibility for some of the consequences of his investments.” That sure sounds like an accusation of a felony.
Or how about Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), who suggested that Mitt Romney hadn’t paid taxes for ten years? “The burden should be on him,” said Reid. “He’s the one I’ve alleged has not paid any taxes. Why didn’t he release his tax returns?” Tax evasion is a felony.
Or how about Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)? “Harry Reid made a statement that is true. Somebody told him. It is a fact. Whether he did or not can easily be disposed of: Mitt Romney can release his tax returns and show whether he paid taxes.”
And as to Obama’s claim that the campaign hasn’t gone “out of bounds,” how about Joe Soptic, a man the Obama campaign trotted out to tell supporters that Mitt Romney and Bain Capital had killed his wife of cancer? How about Joe Biden implying that Republicans would re-enslave black Americans? How about Obama suggesting that Romney was unpatriotic because Bain outsourced jobs?
Obama either lives in a world of his own making, or he’s fully convinced that nobody in the media will ask him a real question about his campaign’s sickening tactics. Perhaps both are true.
