A top Obama campaign official is being accused of lying over what she knew about the man at the center of a damning super PAC ad tying his wife’s death to Mitt Romney.
Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter appeared on CNN Wednesday morning to say, among other things, that “I don’t know the facts” about the case of Joe Soptic, a steelworker who appeared in a controversial ad for the pro-Obama super-PAC Priorities USA. In the ad, Soptic, recounts how his wife died of cancer after he lost his health insurance when his plant was shuttered after a takeover by Bain Capital and other companies working with the private equity firm.

CBS’s Jeff Glor confronted David Axelrod on Friday’s CBS This Morning over his most recent attack on presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney: “You said that Mitt Romney was the most secretive candidate since Richard Nixon….I think that would strike a lot of people as extreme. Do you stand by those comments?“
Glor also pressed Axelrod on the Obama campaign’s “outsourcer-in-chief” attack ads on Romney: “Fact Check, as you know, looked at this, found no evidence that Mitt Romney, while he was still running Bain Capital shipped American jobs overseas. Is it fair to keep those ads on the air?“
The journalist, along with anchor Erica Hill, interviewed the Democratic presidential campaign senior adviser eight minutes into the 7 am Eastern hour. Hill also played a little hardball with her guest in her lead question: “We just heard…the President charging Mitt Romney with playing politics over use of the word ‘tax,’ when it comes to the mandate. The President, of course, adamantly denied that it was a tax in 2009, when he was trying to sell this. The Supreme Court says otherwise. How do you reconcile that now as you try sell a tax to the American people?“
When Axelrod answered, in part, that “whatever you call it – whether you call it a mandate, whether you call it a tax – what it is is a penalty” and attacked Romney for “folding” to “Rush [Limbaugh] and the right and the guys in the Republican caucus on Capitol Hill,” the CBS anchor took him to task: “But if you say it doesn’t matter, the word that you use, then why does it matter if he [Romney] switches words, to your point?“
Glor stepped in once the Obama campaign official answered Hill’s follow-up. He lead with his hardball question on the “outsourcer-in-chief’ attack, and concluded the segment with his challenge to Axelrod. The Democratic pundit got almost a minute and a half to defend his “extreme” attack:
GLOR: David, you keep calling Mitt Romney the ‘outsourcer-in-chief’. We heard what the President said on the trail, indicating that he sent jobs overseas. Fact Check, as you know, looked at this, found no evidence that Mitt Romney, while he was still running Bain Capital shipped American jobs overseas. Is it fair to keep those ads on the air?

Obama’s campaign ads dismissively compare Romney’s work at Bain to that of a “vampire” draining jobs and money from vulnerable companies and workers. After pushback from a handful of pro-free market Democrats in late May, the President himself publicly defended his campaign’s attacks on private equity firms like Bain.
But records from Obama’s time as a state senator in Illinois, along with recollections of those who worked with him, present a very different stance. They indicate that Obama worked hard to position himself as a strong supporter of the venture capital industry. Obama attended industry social functions and used his position in the state senate to propose bills consistent with the legislative goals of the venture capital industry in the state.
“The Barack Obama I knew in Springfield was very pro-private equity, private capital, and high technology” Republican State Senator Kirk Dillard, who served with Obama in the Illinois State Senate, said in a telephone interview with Breitbart News about Obama’s record last week. “Mr. Obama clearly had many friends in the private equity business when he was a legislator,” Dillard added.

You didn’t ask for my advice, but I don’t hold that against you. Here it is, anyway:
(1) Prepare for every debate as brilliantly you did for last night’s. You were ready for every single question and every one of Gingrich’s attacks on you. Your criticism of him was right on target, and delivered with previously unexpressed zeal. You were sharp, focused, and appropriately fierce. Perhaps one day, the leaders of Iran, Cuba, and other hostile nations will hear such eloquent fierceness rather than the fawning obsequiousness to which they’ve become accustomed from the president and his administration.

So help me, news of this broke on Twitter within 10 minutes of this piece appearing at Politico. Second look at total campaign confusion?
Newt Gingrich signaled Wednesday that he believes his criticism of Mitt Romney’s record at Bain Capital is a mistake — and that he’s created an impression that he was echoing Democratic rhetoric…
“I’m here to implore one thing of you. I think you’ve missed the target on the way you’re addressing Romney’s weaknesses. I want to beg you to redirect and go after his obvious disingenuous about his conservatism and lay off the corporatist versus the free market. I think it’s nuanced,” Dean Glossop, an Army Reservist [and Santorum supporter] from Inman, S.C., said.
