    Ad links Romney to death of steelworker's wife, campaign decries 'contemptible effort

    Ad links Romney to death of steelworker's wife, campaign decries 'contemptible effort' | Fox News

    I thought political ads had reached an all time low when liberals ran an ad depicting Congressman Paul Ryan wheeling grandma, kicking and screaming, out to the edge of a cliff in her wheel chair, throwing her off the cliff.

    Now the pro-Obama team is blaming Romney for killing a woman that was once employed by a company that Bain Capital tried to save, but couldn’t, after Romney had already left Bain Capital.

    "There was nothing they could do for her. And she passed away in 22 days," he said. "I do not think Mitt Romney realizes what he's done to anyone, and furthermore I do not think Mitt Romney is concerned."
    Are we, as voters, ever going to rebuke such lowlife, contemptible, dishonest propaganda ads by refusing to vote for those that stoop to such guttural levels as this?

    I'm pretty sure liberals and conservatives hate each other now more than pretty much any American rival or enemy, so anything goes.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    This has absolutely nothing to do with *cough* nonexistant *cough* death panels.

    His plant was closed and he was laid off. **** happens. He was entitled to COBRA but apparently elected to roll the dice. It's a bunch of baloney.

    I know it has nothing to do with death panels

    I just find it interesting on how death panels were used as an emotional plea to prevent Obama care ( health care issue), now we have someone using health care to attack Romney. That neither of the two have a basis in reality

    Don't know you specialty in law but perhaps you should sue the guy on TV as attempting to defraud the American public.
