The hardest thing about this post was the headline. My first idea was, “Godd–ned Worthless Motherf–king Democrat Party, Go to Hell,” but that seemed likely to offend the “family values” conservatives. So then I tried, “Will the Last Honest Person Leaving the Democrat Party, Please Turn Out the Lights?” but it was a couple words too long to fit.
What inspired this was an ad from a pro-Obama “super PAC” which blames Mitt Romney for causing a woman to die from cancer.
Never mind the heinous lies. Does it make sense at all?
I mean, I’ve heard a lot of dishonest charges made against the Republican Party over the years — racism, homophobia, raping the environment, sneaking into elementary school cafeterias and stealing lunch from poor children — but causing cancer?
Hey, that’s a new one. That’s fresh and original.
That’s not just scraping the bottom of the barrel. It’s scraping all the way through the barrel bottom, through the layer of putrid slime underneath the barrel, burrowing all the way into the cesspool below and then digging until you reach the Earth’s molten core.
Romney stopped doing work for Bain in 1999; the steel plant in question here closed down in 2001; Soptic’s wife passed away in 2006; and yet, Romney’s somehow culpable.
I’ve never been prouder to be an ex-Democrat. How anyone could stand to be associated with such vicious dishonest scum as nowadays control the Democratic Party, I don’t know.
Either they have no sense, or else they have no shame.
UPDATE: The heinousness of their lies: Even after the steelworker got laid off, his wife still had a job with health insurance:
There appears to be no actual policy or business critique here. It’s just a string of events spread over five whole years, with certain key data omitted, and you’re supposed to infer causation without really being told why or how. This is what the Unicorn Prince has come to after promising four years ago to heal America or whatever. Perfect.
The Democrats who put the ad together knew this. They knew that the steelworker’s wife died many years after her husband got laid off — and that Mitt Romney had nothing to do with him being laid off, anyway — and they just didn’t care, because, hey, they’re Democrats. They are full-time professional liars. It’s who they are. It’s what they do.
