WTF??!! Willard Spokeperson Says Unemployed Guy Whose Wife Died Shoulda Lived in MA Where They Woulda Had Healthcare

SOCIALISM!!

Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul brought up the law in response to a Priorities USA ad in which a steelworker, who lost his job after Bain Capital closed the GST Steel mill where he worked, connects his unemployment — and resulting lack of health insurance — to the death of his wife.

Team Romney’s response: He should have lived in Massachusetts.

On two Fox News appearances Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, Saul countered that if the steelworker, Joe Soptic, and his wife had lived in Massachusetts, they would have kept their insurance under Romney’s health care reform law.

“To that point, if people had been in Massachusetts, under Gov. Romney’s health care plan, they would have had health care,” Saul said Tuesday.

Saul made the same argument again Wednesday.

“Obviously it is unfortunate when anyone loses their job,” Saul said Wednesday morning on Fox News. “To that point, you know, if people had been in Massachusetts under Gov. Romney’s health care plan they would’ve had health care. There a lot of people losing their jobs and losing their health care in President Obama’s economy, and that is why Gov. Romney is running: to get people back to work.”

I'm hoping that Ms. Saul lives in Massachusetts, because I'm guessing that by this evening she'll be former Romney spokesperson, Andrea Saul.

Hell, Sal. She's doing about as good a job as Romney himself. She fits right in.

Even Rush hated Saul's "rebuttal". As they say, you just can't make this stuff up, astonishing.


Add Rush Limbaugh to the growing list of conservatives who are completely shocked by Team Romney’s latest move to defend itself by touting Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts health care law.

Limbaugh was literally left sputtering as he contemplated the Romney response.

Limbaugh’s criticism came just hours after political observers of all stripes were stopped dead in their tracks by Team Romney’s defense against a Democratic super PAC ad that all but accuses Romney of facilitating a woman’s death after Bain Capital shut down the steel mill her husband worked at, thereby denying the family of health insurance.

In two separate appearances on Fox News, Romney spokesperson Andrea Saul dismissed the ad and said that under Romney’s Massachusetts health care law — which Romney has repeatedly promised to strip away from the country as a whole if he’s elected president — the woman would still have insurance.

If you click on the link above and go to the article you can see the ad that they're talking about.

Obviously even the Romney camp was caught off guard by how vile, totally false and reprehensible the attacks are going to be from the hard left Progressives.

The initial response was weak but what people will remember is that like all the other attacks coming from the Progressives, it was a total, 100% lie.

Right, it's terrible. Almost as bad as saying Obama is going to take all our guns away or that he's a socialist, or that he's a muslim or that he wasn't born in this country. I mean it is just terrible.

Still, maybe, like his aide said, if that family had lived in Mass. they would have not lost their health insurance. That comment is what really makes this whole thing remarkable.

Doesn't matter what Romney or his people say. Obama is distancing himself from this story and the ad as much as he can, now that the story has been found to be mostly a lie.

That seems to be the function of these super pacs and so called independent groups. They act as the attack dog and the candidate tries to pretend they didn't have anything to do with it.

There is also a lot more money being thrown around this election cycle and that's giving people a lot of rope with which to hang themselves or their candidate.

I still say the comments made by Mittens's campaign spokesperson was every bit as damaging as the anti-Mittens ad, almost. Makes it sound like she was proud of the healthcare reform he put in in Mass.
