Barack Obama Ad: Stephanie Cutter: Get the facts on Karl Rove’s BS


Barack Obama Ad: Stephanie Cutter: Get the facts on Karl Rove’s BS

Stefanie Cutter shares the facts against the latest ad put out by Karl Rove and his Super PAC: Crossroads.

“Hi, I’m Stephanie Cutter, Deputy Campaign Manager at Obama for America.

Well, here we are again. Karl Rove’s group, Crossroads, is spending $25 million from secret donors to tear down the president in a new ad out today.

Time to tear this thing apart.

First up — the attack ad says the president has not helped people who face foreclosure. That is flat out wrong.

Because of President Obama’s policies and the efforts he set in motion, over 5.9 million homeowners were able to modify their mortgages, avoid foreclosure, and stay in their homes. And the president is fighting to get Congress to go further — to let responsible homeowners who pay their mortgages on time to refinance and save on their monthly payments, even if they are underwater. The president is doing this because he believes homeownership is critical to helping middle class families build for their future.

And don’t forget: Mitt Romney’s plan on this? Well I’ll just let him speak for himself:

ROMNEY: ‘Don’t try and stop the foreclosure process, let it run its course and hit the bottom.’

I’d like to say that’s unbelievable, but with Mitt Romney, it’s really not.

Second, the ad says the president broke a promise to cut taxes on middle class Americans. They’re wrong again. President Obama has cut taxes for all working Americans — in fact tax levels are nearly the lowest they’ve been since the 1950s. So, when Karl Rove says the president broke his promise on middle class tax cuts, he’s not telling you the truth.

But, If Mitt Romney wants to have this argument, we are happy to have it. Because when he ran for governor of Massachusetts, he promised to cut taxes too. But unlike the President, he actually did break that promise — he hiked taxes and fees by $750 million per year on Massachusetts families and Massachusetts small businesses.

Third, the ads talks about health care. And you’ll like this one because we’ve heard it before. It says that you won’t be able to keep the insurance plan that you have. Now that’s just flat out wrong. If you like your plan if you want to keep it — you can. In fact, the president made that plan stronger.

You know what Mitt Romney says about Obamacare?

ROMNEY: ‘If I’m President, I will repeal Obamacare and I’ll kill it dead on it’s first day.’

‘Kill it dead’ Affordable coverage? Gone. Protections against insurance companies? Gone. Kids with preexisting conditions getting coverage? Not anymore. Not under Mitt Romney.

Fourth up is an attack on the president’s plan to cut the deficit. The President has already enacted $1 trillion in spending cuts to help reduce our deficit—and has a balanced plan to cut the deficit by $4 trillion over the next 10 years.

Under Mitt Romney? The deficit would not just go up, it would go way up. Just like in Massachusetts, where he promised to reduce the debt, but actually increased it by 16 percent. As President, he’d add $5 trillion to the deficit because of a $250,000 tax cut for every millionaire and billionaire in this country that he’s not paying for.

So — another special interest attack ad, another set of outright distortions, and another time when I need to ask you to do what you do best: get the president’s back. Karl Rove is relying on you doing nothing to call out his BS — and I know you’ll prove him wrong. Tweet this video to your friends, Facebook it so people you know see it, post it on your Tumblr — and let’s make sure people get the truth.

Thanks for helping us fight back.

    lol this is the biggest load of spinster shit i have ever seen the left pull. are you guys really so stupid as to believe your own propaganda. like Stephie’s ad that spending has been the slowest with this president then all previous presidents? Where did the 5 trillion in debt come from you idiots. bush had 850 billion in deficit by the end of his second term (that’s the total for both terms) 60% of which occurred when the democrats won the house and senate majorities in 2006 and began passing legislation that destabilized the housing markets by forcing banks to lend to people who weren’t qualified and able to pay them back. Equal Opportunity is not the same as Equal Outcome liberals.
    So, the democrat party had control of both halves of congress. Four years they had control , the last two years of bush’s presidency and the first two years of Obama’s.The latter giving Obama everything he wanted passedm got passed , and they couldn’t give a damn about the right’s views on any of it because guess what they had majority in both houses. so after 2 years of the economy getting worse congressional elections come around and suddenly dems don’t have complete dominance over congress, but neither are they the minority.
    congress is dead locked and Americans notice that the economy has slowed its descent into economic hell. not stopped mind you just slowed. and we notice a trend in government.
    when dems have control of government the national debt and entitlement spending skyrockets ,being successful in the free market makes you and elitist jerk who stole the avg homeless guy, whom you never met before, blind and ow all your wealth to those who didn’t earn it. who when a state exercises its right to purge non-citizen voters from its rolls its called racist and unfair to those who weren’t born in this country. they tell you what sizes of food you can eat or drink because you need the governments help to not become fat.
    When Republicans get into office government shrugs off the dead weight of entitlement programs aimed at illegal immigrants and the cuts back on the number of employees it needs to run because by definition of booting out the entitlement programs means you need less to do more. when you realize the American dream and go and make yourself a fortune through cunning and hard work your touted as a true American and patted on the back for helping the economy of the nation by just existing and pushing the envelope of entrepreneurship. illegal immigrants aren’t allowed to vote like citizens, they get deported back to their own country allowing those jobs that get sucked up by them from liberal pandering to be grabbed by true blue Americans who have the drive and willingness to work hard for their families future.

    you can use your fucked up and retarded math all you want to spin out untrue figures to mask your presidents lack of a track record. All I want the point is as you guys get dumber WE THE PEOPLE GET SMARTER in recognizing what you left nuts really are.

    socialist ,Marxist, double standard, fear mongering, racial baiting, country divisive, UN-commonsensical, elitist , propagandist word mincing, lying , America hating, sycophantic, pompous, condescending ,unpatriotic pieces of garbage who wouldn’t know what a successful country looked like if it walked up to you and kicked your ass.

      i would like to apologize in advance to the grammar police who will undoubtedly scrutinize this comment and insult my intelligence for the way ti is typed rather then refute the truths in it. which is fine since rather then spending all day typing i work with my hands. and self taught myself how to type and in the grand scheme of things my ability to type perfectly or not has no bearing on whether the substance of my comments is valid or not.

    I hope after the election that she serves me coffee. Her journalistic opinion is sub standard. Maybe she can move to Greece to better express her political views.
