Dana Loesch @ Big Government:
President Obama’s campaign is spinning after the furor caused by possible collusion between the campaign and Bill Burton’s Priorities USA superPAC over an ad in which they labeled Mitt Romney as a murderer. Cutter dropped her scheduled “This Week” appearance in the wake of the scandal. Now Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki (who once called Brett Baier a “lunatic” in email) is sloppily contradicting Cutter:
President Barack Obama’s traveling press corps failed to press spokeswoman Jen Psaki today on contradictory statements she made this week regarding the campaign’s knowledge of details about former steelworker Joe Soptic, who appears in a controversial Priorities USA ad.
Amid mounting accusations that Psaki and other campaign representatives lied by initially claiming ignorance of Soptic’s story — when, in fact, they had used Soptic’s story in a two-minute campaign ad and conference call in May — reporters seemed content to let Psaki walk the story back without follow-up.
