Lies, Lies and More Lies
First it was Eric Holder lying repeatedly before Congress on Operation Fast and Furious.
Then it was his Asst Attorney General, Thomas Perez, who has not come clean about the decision-making process when they dropped the case on the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case.
Then it was White House officials testifying under oath that they had nothing to do with that decision to terminate pensions for non-union auto parts workers in that auto bailout. The e-mails paint a different picture.
Then it was that wild campaign ad that accused Mitt Romney of being complicit in the cancer death of a woman in Missouri. Robert Gibbs and Stephanie Cutter, who are running Obama's campaign, say they knew nothing about the case involving the woman and her husband, Joe Soptic, who is featured in the ads. Really?
You will note in the tape of the call in May between Cutter and Soptic that Soptic is obviously reading from a prepared statement.
Stephanie Cutter is one of those characters who regularly sends me e-mails asking me to chip in three bucks for the President's re-election campaign. I'll have to ask her about this the next time I hear from her.
I hope Anderson Cooper is keeping track of all this for his "Keeping them honest" segment.
