How To Kill An Attack Ad By Telling The Truth (Video)

How To Kill An Attack Ad By Telling The Truth (Video)

The conservative group Americans for Prosperity, founded by one of the billionaire Koch brothers and now backing Mitt Romney, recently launched a $6.1 million attack ad against the Obama administration, an ad accusing the Obama administration of wasting billions and sending jobs overseas through green energy projects.

Rather than play the ad in order to refute its insinuations and flat-out lies, Stephanie Cutter, deputy campaign manager of the Obama team, created a response to take down the lies one-by-one. Amazing – a campaign ad that doesn’t talk down to the American people, but treats us like adults by giving us some actual facts.

She explains the reason for the ad: Obama would take away billions of dollars in unnecessary oil tax breaks, while Mitt Romney would keep them.

Then she highlights some of those lies:

*  The administration gave money to build electric cars in Finland? No.
*  The administration sent money to China at build traffic lights? No.
*  The administration gave money to a company building a solar plant in Mexico? No.

Well Romney just told the biggest whopper of his flip flopping run for President. He stated that he is responsible for the success of (President Obama's saving the auto industry work) the saving of the auto industry. Astounding that anyone could be so Stupid! It is becoming clear that Mitt doesn't know reality from delusion, or he is just a LIAR.

Anyhting funded by the Kock Brothers is suspect and should be viewed with suspicion. Their well funded Obama Hate Propaganda Machine will stop at nothing and stoop to new depths to accomplish their nefarious ends. Lies are no big thing to them. hey are starting to make Joseph Goebbels and his propaganda machine look respectable in comparison.
