Obama Campaign Releases Ad Hinting Romney is a "Felon"

It was just last month that Obama Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter claimed that Mitt Romney is either a liar or a felon, insisting that he misrepresented his time spent at Bain Capital.  Upon hearing the accusations, the Romney campaign insisted that the President issue an apology for the remarks.

Instead, the campaign has doubled down on the outrageous accusation, running an ad that attacks Romney for not releasing more tax returns, at one point flashing the words “felons” and “tax records” on the screen.

The Weekly Standard reports:

The latest web ad from Barack Obama’s campaign goes after Mitt Romney for not releasing more tax returns than he already has. The ad, titled “Mitt Romney’s Tax Returns: When Will He Come Clean?,” at one point flashes two words onscreen, “FELONS” and “TAX RECORDS.”

The words, “FELONS” and “TAX RECORDS,” are displayed onscreen for at least six seconds, so the Obama campaign wants to make sure its viewers see the words.

Given the title of the ad–and the subject–the ad wants viewers to consider that Mitt Romney might not be releasing more tax returns because, the Obama campaign is suggesting, he might be a felon. 

Here’s the video…

Is there ever a point where the people surrounding Obama recognize their own epic levels of hypocrisy?  College transcripts, healthcare reform developed behind closed doors, executive privilege to cover up Fast and Furious documents, interfering in voter intimidation prosecutions…  Where are the real felons in this campaign?

Obama Launches ‘Truth Team’ to Battle Critics

February 13, 2012 at 5:27 pm (Attack Watch, Campaign, President Obama, Republicans, Truth Team)

But the biggest detractors of truth are Obama supporters themselves…

The Blaze reports:

Fans and critics alike may get a kick out of the President‘s reelection campaign’s decision to launch a “Truth Team” to fend off expected attacks on the President’s record. The campaign explains:
“The Truth Team is a network of supporters of President Obama who are committed to responding to unfounded attacks and defending the President’s record. When you’re faced with someone who misrepresents the truth, you can find all the facts you need right here—along with ways to share the message with whoever needs to hear it.”
The Truth Team webpage features a blog with three outlets to “AttackWatch,” KeepingGOPHonest,“ and ”KeepingHisWord.”
“Every time a baseless attack comes to light, we’ll arm you with the truth so you can spread the word.”

Via Gateway Pundit:

Today the Obama Administration launched the return of the truth team goon squads.
ABC reported:
The Obama campaign is today beginning a new effort to enlist and educate at least 2 million supporters for a “grassroots communications team” they’re calling the Truth Team.
“The goal is to ensure that when Republicans attack President Obama’s record, grassroots supporters can take ownership of the campaign and share the facts with the undecided voters in their lives,” the campaign said in a statement…
The rollout also includes a social media blitz, directing supporters to three new websites: KeepingHisWord.com, which highlights Obama’s record and “promises kept”; KeepingGOPHonest.com, which highlights GOP policy positions; and AttackWatch.com, which fact-checks claims made against Obama on the campaign trail.
“If the other guys are going to run a campaign based on misrepresenting the president’s record – and their own – we have two options: sit back and let these lies go unchallenged, or fight back with the truth,” deputy Obama campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said in an email. “We’re fighting back.”
Get ready for the Obama goons to “get in your face.”

That said, here is a video about AttackWatch.com, a serious attempt by the Obama administration to monitor criticisms.
