An Important Message In The 'Romney Killed My Wife' Campaign Ad

Every time I see that Priorities USA ad that implies that Romney was responsible for Joe Soptic's wife dying of cancer, I seethe with anger because I know exactly how dishonest it is.

At the same time, I am legitimately saddened by the fact that Joe Soptic's wife had to have died from such a horrible form of cancer.  Lung Cancer.  What's even more saddening is the that fact almost 90% of lung cancer cases can be traced back to either first-hand or second-hand smoking by an individual, a spouse, or a family member.  If, in fact, Joe's wife died because she or he had smoked, there's a message there.  Joe Soptic should take some responsibility and tell the true story of why his wife died.  The story is that smoking kills.  Often, too early in life.  That's the kind of ad Joe Soptic should be running.  An ad that, just maybe, could save some lives.

Remember the thousands of people that lost their jobs and health care when hundreds of auto dealerships had to close after Odumbo's auto bailout? Wonder how many people died because of that?

You're correct on all those topics. How would you like to be a Delphi worker, close to retirement, and Obama kills your pension because you're non-union? How devastating is that!
