Former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin weighed in on the controversial “cancer ad” in which the Obama campaign disgustingly claimed the Mitt Romney was responsible for killing a man’s wife. She then accused members of the press of “prostituting” themselves by not pointing out the alleged collaboration between the Obama campaign and the superPAC that backs him.
“Some of these reporters who know the truth about this situation because they were in the room, in the press conference, or teleconference room listening to this — I think you said it was back in May — and now they’re watching this ad play out from the super PAC, they know what happened, and I don’t know how they can sleep at night,” Palin said Thursday on Fox News’ “Hannity.”
“They’re basically prostituting themselves for a job, for interview, for access to the Obama administration and the campaign. And they’re letting this go on, and it is illegal. It violates the PAC laws. What I would like to see happen is for just one reporter in the mainstream media who knows the truth about this to stand up and do the worthy and ethical thing and let Americans know that there was collaboration and also that this is a far-fetched, despicable ad that misrepresents Governor Romney’s position.”
She called both the tactics of the Obama campaign “nauseating” and said, “I hope his daughters never have to go through what he allows, and I believe, helps perpetuate, what other women go through. He, the president, as the leader of these attackers, and these attackers try to invalidate and discredit somebody’s record and reputation and what they stand for. … I hope his family members don’t have to go through that. You don’t wish that on your worst enemy.”
“I think it’s disgusting,” she continued. “And at this point, you know, with all due respect to the office of the presidency, when I hear Barack Obama speak at this point, especially when he lectures about ethics and civility, it’s nauseating to me.”
Palin also said that all of Barack Obama’s spokespersons “represent this agenda of deception” and said that Stephanie Cutter, the campaign’s spokeswoman, should be fired.
I couldn’t agree more. The ad was a piece of garbage and unworthy of something coming from the person holding the highest office in the land and I also agree with the assessment that the people who speak for Obama are part of the agenda of deception. I’ll go further and say they all need to be fired, including their boss.
