If you’re having difficulties keeping track of who said what regarding the Soptic scandal, it’s no wonder.
Stephanie Cutter lied in media interviews when she said she didn’t know about Joe Soptic’s story or insurance situation. Then audio of her call co-hosted with Soptic from months earlier emerged.
After this Obama Campaign Spokeswoman Jen Psaki contradicted Cutter on how much the campaign knew about Joe Soptic.
Cutter ditched her “This Week” appearance for fear of tough questioning and the Obama camp dispatched Axelrod to clean up the wreckage and redirect the narrative. Instead of focusing on possible illegal collusion between the campaign and the superPAC, Axelrod tried admission of a lesser offense, “dishonesty,” by comparing it to Romney’s welfare ads.
The problem with Axelrod’s reasoning?
Romney’s ad targeting Obama on welfare is accurate.
